My husband and I visited spontaneously tonight. Our salad was great along with our dinners and dessert. The homemade dark chocolate ice cream with hot fudge topped off the night. Wine list extensive and well priced. Great waitress. Will definitely visit again.

My husband and I go there frequently for special occasions. The food and service is always amazing. The waiters and waitresses are well versed on daily specials, when they recite these specials it will cause you mouth to salivate. The staff dresses so professionally. We like the quiet atmosphere where we can talk and not be bothered by loud music... More

The atmosphere was elegant for being in a strip mall. Watched the barkeep polish my glass before pouring my wine. The small bite caprise salad was fantastic! Great shrimp pasta which was not one of the specials. Homemade raspberry sherbet for dessert. A must visit spot if you are nearby.

Wonderful food great service. We all ordered different entrees so we could taste each others. Every dish was wonderful. The wine selection is great and they offer retail price on the bottles plus $5 corkage. We were impressed and will be back

We've been to this restaurant several times-usually for a special occasion. The menu offers interesting options for most food preferences. The service was friendly and efficient. We appreciated the extensive wine list and our server was well-informed, suggesting certain wines for food choices. It's definitely pricey. Is the experience worth the cost? Probably.

We came here for dinner on a Friday night with another couple. Our waitress was friendly and the service was good. She recited / read off a long list of specials from 2 - 3 appetizers to several entrees and dessert. It was a bit long and she said it a bit fast. We commented that it would be better... More

there food is generally pretty good i like that wine section and the menu has a lot of good choice, what i don't really care for is there are a lot of "extra" charges like it you want extra dressing and extra this or that, listen when you spending the money to eat at a higher end restaurant those things...

I travel to Mentor, OH twice a year and have been dining at Molinari's for about 15 years. My main contact is the night manager named Justin. He is knowledgeable about all the wines and spirits and helps me select the appropriate wine for the party I'm with. (All the wines are in a wine rack accessible to the customers... More

We had a large party, and we were seated at the time of our reservation. Its a large dining room with a wine shop and bar on the opposite side. Our mistake was ordering steak at an Italian restaurant. No one had there steak cooked to preference. Stick with pasta and you will be fine. Good desserts and OK service.

The food was amazing, the service was very good. You get what you pay for her; yes the prices are a little high but I didn't mind paying because the food was worth it. Tiramisu for dessert was yummy. Can't wait to go back.
