Price is good provided in a tourist area. The food is Italian, authentic and simple, not a lot of choices in the menu, mainly pasta with sauce or seafood. The bread is not free. The bruschetta we ordered was too hard. Inside has less than 10 tables, patio has a few more picnic tables. It was full in summer nights.... More

Lucked into this restaurant that was just up the street from our motel. They were so popular that they had to turn customers away - they need more tables! Authentic Italian cuisine, the food was delicious, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I had the classic Puttenesca, one of the best I've tasted. And the tira misu was divine.

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.
