Description: Il Ristorante Il Molo si trova nel punto più suggestivo della Baia di Portonovo fin dal 1961, esattamente di fronte al molo di attracco. La cucina è diretta da Simone Baleani che propone piatti legati alla tradizione e al territorio del Conero con un occhio sempre rivolto all’innovazione. Protagonista principe dell’offerta è il Mosciolo Selvatico di Portonovo, Presidio Solw Food dal 2003. Il menù propone inoltre gustose scelte tra cui crudità varie, baccalà mantecato, spaccasassi e alici, gli spaghetti al battuto di Moscioli Selvatici, l’ormai mitica Carbonara nera del Molo, pescato del giorno alla griglia e al forno, brodetto e stoccafisso. Ampia la scelta dei vini del territorio come pure nazionali ed esteri con particolare attenzione alle bollicine, suggeriti dal patron-sommelier Giacomo Giacchetti che rappresenta la terza generazione alla guida del locale. Oggi Il Molo è anche Molo Beach, un bagno rinnovato e attrezzato per il relax e magici Apericena sotto l'ombrellone.

Great restaurant for fresh seafood! Some dishes sound a bit posh on the menu but pasta and just simple fish meals are really good and the price is more than reasonable. Would definitely go there again.

We went there today to have dinner while enjoying the sunset. The restaurant's location is really good, right by the beach and the settings is also very welcoming.

The service given by the waiter was excellent as well. The menu was in Italian, but he took the trouble to explain in English almost every single item on the menu. Didnt get his name but I guess he was the only English speaking waiter.

The food was OK, nothing outstanding, but wasnt bad as well. Maybe my Malaysian tongue is so used to spicy food that without a hot sauce to accompany the pasta it didnt really satisfy my taste buds.

I would highly recommend going to this nice place by a very beautiful beach.

This may not have been the best food i've ever had, but the combination made it an excellent restaurant: beach front, lovely staff and really great food (the white chocolate mousse is soooo good... and the pasta with fish.... yum!). We went three times, twice for dinner, once for lunch. The sunsets are wonderful, but we loved lunch time better: white wine in the sun is just unbeatable!

I just love this place, its location just on the Molo beach in Portonovo, the beautiful sunsets you can enjoy during summer, the great food and the excellent service. Totally racommended.

We have been few times at this beautiful beach restaurant in Portonovo (Ancona) and we have never been disappointed about the amazing sea food and the friendly service! The Tagliatelline ai frutti di mare and the carbonara di mare are the best pasta dishes ever!
The scenery is beautiful, perfect for a romantic dinner at the portonovo bay!
But it is a bit too expensive for the portions you get..
