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

We went for Easter and were pleasantly surprised. The previous time to Easter the food was blah. The owners have recaptured their reputation. Food was very good. The owners were on site touching base with all the diners. Nice touch. Welcome back Molise!!

Went here on a Saturday night. It was very busy but the staff was very friendly and moved quickly to clean tables. We did make a reservation, which I believe is recommended on the weekends. The restaurant is a little loud but that is overshadowed by the food and the friendliest staff. I thought for the portions and the taste... More

We went there to celebrate my husband's birthday. We have eaten there several times, but not in the past year. The wine list is mediocre for an Italian restaurant. Food was served inconsistently with a few mistakes that slowed things down even more. I suggest the owners shake things up, try new approaches to food & wine menu.

We had not been in a few years, but I can not say enough about our wonderful dinner! We started with Eggplant Rollino, which was amazing, followed by the swordfish which was easily the best we had had in recent memory. We also had the lobster suffed haddock which was creamy and delicious. Our meal was finished with a perfectly... More
