Great Italian food right next to the water. Beautiful view while enjoying a delicious meal. Attentive and friendly staff, well presented meals. Only down side when we were there was they seemed to be short staffed, most likely because it was on the Labour Day weekend. The meal made up for the wait.

Our visit was certainly a nicer experience than my two previous attempts when they still had that silly blackboard menu and inedible pasta. The "new" printed menu now has a nice range of Italian options and while the total bar service remains a few beers from a glass fronted cooler and a limited range of wines, the food has been...

We really enjoyed our meal at Molinari's! We sat at a table outside at sunset. The service was attentive and friendly. They were welcoming of our well-behaved 7yo and attentive to our needs. The bruschetta was just divine - lots of plump, juicy and sweet tomatoes with a sweet balsamic glaze. The caprese salad with spinach was also delicious, as... More

The best view in town, near the water at the end of the docks. Great italian food - amazing quality, great service. Much less pricey than other decent restaurants in town.

My friend & I went for a pasta dinner at this Italian restaurant on the east end of Little Tub Harbour. The past was excellent. The wine was also very good. Service was also excellent. The only draw-back was no air-conditioning and it was a very hot day. I wish we could have lingered over our meal but it was... More

Our bnb place recommended this place to us. We arrived Friday evening around 7:30pm. The place was almost full. We were quickly being seated near the window facing the harbour. The view was fantastic! We ordered Caesar Salad and Seafood Pasta. The salad was great! I am not a pasta fan but this dish made my day. The jumbo shrimps,... More

Food was fantastic. Service was great. Their location provides an amazing view. We had the Caprese Salad, Mussels, Braised Beef Ravioli and Seared Tuna. There was not a drop left on anyone's plate. Thank you to the chef and friendly staff.

We were the first customers of Molnari's regular season this year. Given it was opening day I didn't have my expectations set to high, but I was pleasantly surprised. The meal was amazing! We both had ravioli (different types). It was excellent and obviously home made and not from a frozen package. The service was quick and pleasant. And the... More
