Trattoria Mollie (or Mollie's) is now also located on State Street in downtown Santa Barbara (1200 block, near the Granada Theater). I just enjoyed a meal of bruschetta, eggplant parmigiana, and cheesecake, and everything was especially delicious. The eggplant dish was a perfect blend of...More

Ate a late dinner at the bar. Very good service and good food. We had a pizza, which wasn't bad at all. Not the best, but pretty good. Also, the lasagna, which was good. Not sure I would return, but it was pretty good.

I had never eaten here and heard many raves about it. I'm thinking its because famous people go there. Service was "good". Food "very good". But wine list was inadequate. There were only 2 chardonnays and they were either $56 or $59. That is ridiculous....More

This Trattoria apparently boasts TV celebrities amongst their clientele, the food was very good though I found the wine list expensive.

After the fire and floods of late 2017-early 2018 we wanted to show our support to the local restaurants, and Trattoria Mollie did not disappoint. We sat outside in the early spring time warmth, and lunch was delightful. The table ordered Insalata Tricolore with shrimp,...More

In warm weather the patio on the Coast Village Road is far enough above the street that it feels good and private. In cold weather the main dining room is very attractive and warm and welcoming. The menu is extensive and they always have specials....More

On several occasions dining here we have very much enjoyed the menu, esp the pasta selections. But every experience has been marred by exceptionally poor service. No excuse, as we were among very few customers trying to have a late lunch.

Overall decent, good tasting basic Italian, perhaps somewhat pricey. Made an Open Table reservation, but stood at entrance for 5 minutes watching a couple busy waiters. Finally a woman came by and took the two of us to a 5-top, never asked our names, if...More

We took another couple here for dinner to celebrate a very encouraging career event. We were met at the door by Mollie who was delightful, unassuming and eager for us to join her for dinner. We were promptly seated (we had reservations, but the Thomas...More
