Their address is 68 water drive, Tobermory. They do not take reservation; first come first serve. Excellent Italian food at reasonable price. I highly recommend their Tiramisu.

We were part if a group of ten hungry scuba divers who ate at Molinari's around 7 pm on a Saturday night. The servers were clearly not happy to see such a large group and ultimately split us up when it was not necessary to do so. Our server was friendly but unable to open wine bottles (no training) ....

We noticed one of the kitchen staff (open concept there) is most likely dating one of the young female staff...who has no business serving tables. She basically stood around doing nothing, and lost two tables due to the fact. We lucked out with our server who was prompt, courteous, and all accommodating. The food was 50/50. Smoked Salmon app was... More

Glad we gave them a try...excellent dinner special enjoyed by my partner...pan seared cod on a bed of linguini with an excellent sauce. My pasta primavera was also very good and the beautiful sky as the sun set and we sipped a nice house merlot made the evening even better. Worth finding - just keep walking on the Bruce Trail...

We had pasta and spaghetti. Quantity was fine but very salty. The place is a little crowded since it's located in a boat house. People had to eat their diner at sofa. The highlight was the service. The waiter with mustache was very warm. He made rum and coke with Italian coke and explained their deserts to us when we... More

Nice venue with pleasant view at the end of the harbour dock. Friendly wait staff. Local microbrews were available here which were also excellent. Management, please have shaded seating available at the outside patio.

First time visit. Best view of the ferry arriving and leaving. The pasta was excellent and sangria too but the service could be improved. Would have liked a piece of bread with my pasta dinner as other Italian restaurants serve. We ordered bruschetta and our meal appeared with no explanation that bruschetta was not available. Could have been given another... More

I went there with my girl-friend around 2pm today, and it took us a bit of time to find it. I was happy that we found it, however we were disappointed when we were told that they were preparing for dinner and only had meat sauce spaghetti and tomato basil sauce spaghetti available. We were so hungry and we both... More
