We went here after a long day just for coffee. However once we walked in and smelled all of the aromas we decided to look at the menu. We ordered the cheese and meat platter. It was one of the best if not the best platter we have ever had. The only regret we had was that we didn't... read more

We ABSOLUTELY LOVE this lovely little restaurant. We've been hiking the Bruce Trail and have only been to Tobermory a couple of times, but went back to Molinari's both times because we loved it so much! The food is spectacular - every bite a treat - the chef taking amazing care to create the most delicious recipes... honestly the best... More

I have been coming to the Bruce Peninsula for over 20 years and this is the best best food I have had in the area. The food is made with fresh ingredients and the service we received was excellent.

Had dinner here after a long day kayaking on georgian bay. Great atmosphere, and even more amazing food. All the food is made from scratch, and you can actually see them cook it as the kitchen is right at the end of the restaurant, which gives it a great homey feel. The service was also really friendly as well. Their... More

Okay, you're right. It's the only Italian restaurant up here. But the menu and the way it's cooked was a pleasant surprise. The kitchen knows their Italian food, and there are about a dozen varieties of pasta on the menu. I suspect the lasagna might be their strongest suit, and in fact Molinari's has built a successful catering business around... More

Molinari's is located down on the docks and provides an amazing view of Georgian bay. The patio is licenced and dog friendly and provides an easy Segway on and off the docks. The menu is full of authentic Italian dishes and appetizers. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful! Keep that white wine on ice!!

This restaurant has an identity crisis. It hasn't quite decided what to be and is far from maximizing its potential. The two strong suits are the absolutely excellent food and the prime real estate - the best location on the point, with a beautiful view, opposite the Chi-Cheemaun ferry dock. Despite these positives, while they have an opportunity to create... More

My husband and I have been going to tobermory for 6 years.. it was a pleasant surprise to have found this restaurant. Most of the food your going to find in tobermory is deep fried foods with some exceptions. However to find great food there is expensive. This was our first time eating at this restaurant. The previous years we... More
