I have not had such a good meal since going to the North End in Boston. Their pasta is divine, and I especially enjoyed the spinach salad with sublime ingredients including one of my favorites, pine nuts. The service matched the fare. We were there early so we enjoyed the extra attention. I highly recommend this family owned restaurant--you won't... More

We were surprised from the start at some of the less-than-stellar things at the restaurant. The rolls provided were rather bland and silly white things. In addition, if you wanted another you actually had to pay for it! I could pick up something like that at a local mediocre grocery store. The ravioli I had was a wee bit flavorless.... More

Had the mozzarella panini as a quick bite for lunch. Okay, but nothing special. Nice decor and open on Sundays.

However, enough choices to whet your appetite. Good service helped. Spicy sausge was tasty. I hadn't been to Caffe Molise in some time and was pleased to see they were able to expand into additional space next door. Not crowded when we arrived and stayed quiet during our time for lunch. If you want something fast and tasty, this will... More

We stopped here for lunch. We got to eat outside and it was so very nice. I had spaghetti pompodoro and it was fantastic. It is garlic, tomatoes, and olive oil, spices. Just Yummy. Try it if in the area. It's always fun to find a really good restaurant on .the first try

One of the menu offerings was a fresh white KIng salmon with pasta. It had asparagus and a light sauce (of which I cannot pronounce) but it was excellent. The dish was tasty, the sauce not too salty; and not too heavy. The service and the wine recommendation also excellent.

We were here for a convention and walked over to the cafe- less than a block from the Salt Palace Convention Center. It is Italian food and everyone enjoyed their meal. We ate out on the patio for a late dinner. Our waiter Paul was excellent. I chose from a special of the day and really enjoyed it. We'd definitely... More

We enjoyed the excellent service and food from Cafe Molise. The wines available are extraordinary. The food was also excellent and our service was most professional. I will definitely be back again.

It's been two years since I've been to SLC and I had forgotten just how good Caffe Molise is. I love the patio, ample shade, lovely setting. The salad was excellent and was filling, and the service was just right - friendly and helpful, there when we needed him, but not at all pesky. Very convenient to the Salt Palace,... More

Italian restaurant with many options depending on your requirements. I had the Polenta Con Funghi because I am allergic to gluten. They had gluten free pasta options but I like something different and polenta and italian go together really well. Portion size was good, service was friendly and we ate in the outdoor garden area. Table tip, avoid the 2... More
