“Entreès Plus and More, home grown, home made, fresh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

I highly recommend Il Laghetto Ristorante, opposite the church in Santa Maria del Molise, Isernia, Italy to anyone visiting Molise ... closed Monday ... open Tuesday-Sunday for Lunch or Dinner by appointment. The jewel is Mimì the owner-Chef who grows most of the vegetables herself and prepares every single dish with knowledge passed down generation to generation ... and Mimì has improved many of the original dishes. She combines food in season with native herbs to delight the palate ... our son says: Mimì didn't go to a regular Cooking School, she learned to cook in Heaven!! ... The 10Plus Entreès put everyone in a good mood ... then allow Mimì or her staff to guide you in choosing the Pasta or Rice choices etc .... Sweets all home made and delicious!!

“Memories of Molise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

One of my best Memories of Molise was dining at Il Laghetto to celebrate my husband's birthday. Michela suprised and delighted our group by serving entrees which were typical of the region - we lost count after 16. Naturally we were so full we could barely eat the pasta course, however, the ravioli with zucchini was delicious. Michela prepares the meals which are seasonal and typical of the region. She has extensive food knowledge and this is reflected in the meals she prepares. The birthday cake was a fresh fruit torta which was light and refreshing and very tasty. On another occasion Michela prepared a birthday cake for my father-in-laws 95th birthday. Michela suggested a torta of individual portions which was covered in a delicious lemon cream. It was beautifully presented and tasted heavenly. Thank you Michela, will visit you again next time we come to Italy.

“outstanding food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

if you are anywhere near Molise Please make a point of eating here. I have never had such fresh food it is all local produce and leave it up to the owner to choose for you she will guide you well she makes and prepares it all. You can just order the antipasto as in the other reviewers photos it is enough from fried zucchini cheese crafted and aged in the town to salamis fresh ricotta formed into star forms excellent quality the pasta;s are also handmade the owner chooses a couple daily and surprises her customers with top quality ingredients and can rival any five star chef!!!you must eat to believe enjoy

“Beautiful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Im visiting Santa Maria del mollie to see we're my father grew up when he was a child. Our first day there our friends took us to "il laghetto" for lunch. Wow, it's is the best Italian food I have ever eating. With home grown vegetables and local prouct being used and the menu changing regally with the seasons. And such an extremely friendly atmosphere with the beautiful sights of the mountains in the background I was extremely satisfied and wish I could eat more
