Friendly table staff could not make up for medoicre entrées. Artichoke gorganzola penne pasta drowned in salt. Eggplant ravoli overpowered by tart, uninspired tomato cream sauce which might have been enhanced by more generous amount of goat cheese if had been spread evenly over the dish. Try one of many other Italian restaurants in SLC, UT instead.

I've been here for four years and tried it for the first time last night. I wish I hadn't waited so long. The food quality and ingredients are beautiful, preparations are solid and the wine list is exceptional. Service is quite attentive even when they are busy (and every table was full last night). The live music in the park... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant whilst looking for somewhere to eat before the theatre. Just managed to get a seat and were pleased we did. The food was lovely, service was fast, there was a buzz about the place, and obviously very popular. Prices were reasonable, as was everywhere we found on our tour of the States, especially compared with England... More

This place was perfect for our lunch. I read the reviews and they all measure up. We sat outside, the kiddo had plenty of space. Good beer and wine selection on a hot afternoon. The server was great and made an awesome special fruit and cheese plate for our little one. I had the portobello/carmelized onion pannini with a salad... More

My husband and I like to have lunch on the patio in the summer. The food is consistently delicious. They bring out hot rolls and the salads are nicely dressed and crisp. We enjoy the calm atmosphere and friendly service. It's across the street from City Creek shopping but not hectic. Fantastic!

Caffe Molise is kind of a hidden gem in the middle of Salt Lake City. It's hidden away, and I'm not sure the average passer by would think to stop here for a meal. But if you happen to stumble on in, you won't be disappointed. Caffe Molise offers a nice break from the typical Italian fare found elsewhere. The... More

Caffe Molise was located right across from City Creek Center. Very nice quite dining room perfect for special occasions or just a quiet dinner. We were glad to see that they had a lack of red sauce Italian favorites and focused on simple, but hearty and flavorful preparations. Pork tenderloin (Arista) was delicious as were many of the appetizers. Didn't... More

Loved the outdoor patio here. The menu included a wide variety of Italian foods. Our large group ordered different things and everyone enjoyed them. The staff accommodated our last minute, large group pleasantly and professionally. Friendly and relaxed. Well done.

This is a fabulous place to eat. The courtyard is divine even in the middle of the day. We had a yummy chicken penne pasta in Marsala sauce with apricots and an incredible sausage polenta. Good stuff definitely be back during our convention stay

The evening was getting on when we came across this restaurant so we were happy to find it open and moderately busy as it closes at 9.00pm mid-week. Going into the cosy attractive dining area, one of about four separate spaces, we were served promptly by our waiter. Some nice home baked bread accompanied our salads before our mains consisting...
