Its on the beautiful coast of Santa Marinella and on the decking (like a pier). So, you are dining by the waters. Try and get the first sitting as watching the sunset (you dont actually see the sun but the golden projection on the surrounding) while you enjoy the extensive menu of wine and food is amazing. I will recommend... More

All dishes were very delicious! Sea foods always fresh! It was perfect to have a dinner near the sea with relaxed atmosphere and perfect support from Federica. Also our respect to other guys.

Had a meal here two days ago and food is very good. The fish is so fresh and oysters are delicious. If you are in the area then this place is a must.

We accidentally stumbled across this restaurant after wandering up and down the coast in Santa Marinella, and it was a wonderful find. The friendly staff, stunning placement of the back deck over the ocean, listening to the waves lap the beach whilst being served excellent local wines and fantastic quality food, it was truly one of the most peaceful meals...

The Food was moderate, but the service was embarrassingly bad, orders forgotten or delivered to the wrong tables. It was quite obvious that the staff had had no training whatsoever

We happened upon Molo 21 totally by accident, and it was just what we were looking for. To have a light lunch on the seaside prior to driving back to Rome. There were only two other tables being used on the terrace on a beautiful afternoon, and it was idyllic. We had the mussels with bruschetta from the starters (this... More

Sat out in the sunshine for a leisurely lunch. My starter was delicious and the recommended chips with pecorino were really good too. I had pasta with clams which was lovely but the risotto with red prawns was not so good. Service was great

By far, my favourite restaurant in the world. The dishes are creative but substantial and delicious. Presentation is excellent but flavour is the most important thing. Who wants to eat a beautiful dish that is tasteless? The pancetta and caposanto are a perfect marriage. They have also introduced very cool stone slabs for some of the dishes. This year there...

We went to Molo 21 twice this week, both times for a positively sumptuous meal, great wines, great service, a relaxed and spa-like atmosphere, and the sun sparking on the sea. Kevin Murphy, the Canadian chef from Nova Scotia, has produced a beautiful menu, with must-try items like tuna wasabi tatare, mussels in garlic thyme and pepper broth, grilled octopus... More
