I recently spent a week with my sister and her family at their new home in Amesbury. We capped off a wonderful visit with dinner at Ristorante Molise. Not only is the food exquisite, but the dining room is absolutely charming and warm. The service is helpful and attentive. Five of us ordered 5 different dishes, and each one thought... More

The very few times my husband and I have been here we have thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, service and food. It is more expensive for us so we reserve it for special occasion dinners. This is local in town for us and so we do appreciate giving it our business.

The crepes here are to die for!!! My wife had the chicken salad and it too was amazing. Both of of us had leftovers. Well worth the visit!

Our party of 6 was seated promptly at the time of our reservation on a busy Saturday night. The dining room is airy and bright. We started with beers & a pitcher of red sangria, and then ordered another pitcher. Delish and loaded with fresh fruit. Warm bread and oil went well with our drinks. Our server was knowledgeable and... More

My wife and I got a last minute babysitting and gave Molise a try. What a great surprise! They have a long menu of many classic Italian dishes. We started with the Calamari appetizer, and it was excellent. The sauce kind of reminded us of a Asian sauce.. a very slight bite to it. I ordered the Chicken Parmesan, and... More

We went for dinner on short notice with 9 people. We were pleasantly surprised at the promptness of our seating despite the last minute reservation and business of the restaurant. Our servers were excellent, prompt and catered to our 5 kids with care and understanding! The food was excellent!

My wife and I were feeling a little adventurous one afternoon and ended up in Amesbury, MA. The Market Square area has a variety of restaurants to choose from so without a specific place in mind, we explored the streets on foot and let our appetite guide our steps. We stumbled upon Ristorante Molise and gave in to Italian. We... More

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. We love Italian food and this place is fantastic. We sat at the bar and watched the action in and out of the kitchen. Everything that came out looked so good. I had the Chicken Molise - OMG, it was so good - tender, all natural chicken pieces in... More

We went here early on a Saturday night after making a reservation. It filled up quickly after we got there so we were glad we made the reservation. We were seated at a small window table and greeted by our server who was very nice. We ordered drinks and an order of their calamari which is something I would go... More
