“Good food, disappointing service, watch the GST”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Visited Molto Delizio on a Saturday night during peak season. Were seated inside however it was quite noisy. If you have the choice, sit outside where you don't need to hear about the lives of the staff or listen to every order that comes in.

Waiter was nice enough but came back to our table numerous times to check what we'd ordered, he didn't seem to be familiar with the menu at all. Food came out in good time and was very enjoyable. Pizza was quite big so good value, and pasta was nicely cooked.

When paying our bill however, we realised the prices on the menu did not include GST and this was an added charge at the bottom of our bill. I have never been to a restaurant in Australia that does this. On receiving the receipt from our EFTPOS payment, it was actually $20 higher than our bill. The waitress behind the desk uttered a very quick apology and gave cash to balance it out. Left a bad taste after a pleasant meal, we won't be back based on the service.

“Truly delicious authentic Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We visited this restaurant during peak holiday season and were surprised to actually get a table, without a booking. The restaurant is indoor/ outdoor and we were seated indoors. It was very warm inside and we were very close to the kitchen which was a bit distracting. You could hear the chefs yelling orders to each other, too distracting for my liking. The food was absolutely amazing, from the bruschetta to the arancini, bugs, and pasta. Dessert was superb, you have to try the Italian donuts, beautiful. Service was good, however the slow kitchen let them down. The restaurant was very busy yet we waited ages for each meal. Overall, the food is the best part of this restaurant , can't wait to go back. Received a loyalty card too, always good for a local. It's a definite must try restaurant when in coolangatta .

“Recommended for a weekend breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We visited on a rainy/windy Sunday morning using a discount voucher. We were warmly welcomed by the wonderful Mark (great character) and both really enjoyed the food. On a sunny day, the outlook over the sea would be lovely. Would definitely return if we holiday in the area again.

“Would not go Back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We dined there for breakfast using a discount voucher, the meals were cold. We asked for a side order of mushrooms, I was happy to pay the extra $3-$4, we got one mushroom the size of a 50 cent coin. They accidently brought an extra juice to the table and then had the nerve to charge us for it because we drank it.

The final and most disappointing part of our morning was the cashier, she did not ask us how our meal was, and did not even look up at us when giving us the bill. When I politely questioned a couple of the charges on the bill she snapped a reponse back to me. Very disappointing to have the last point of contact at the restaraunt that terrible. I sent them an email outlining my disatisfaction with my experience there and recieved absolutley NO response from them. If anything the food was ok but the service was poor.
