What a gem of a place. There aren't many great Italian restaurants with good honest food in Hua Hin . So glad we found it . Great outdoor and smaller indoor section . Very relaxing atmosphere for families and friends. Great service by great couple Ming and Carlo. My seafood pasta was fantastic ,tiramisu had so great .
I have never seen "Black squid ink calamari " in menu anywhere else so decided to try it, let me tell you , one serving was not enough for us !
I wanted to try everything I see on the menu .

Will definitely go back . Have to try the Crab squid ink ravioli next time!

After reading the reviews we decided to try Molina this evening. It was outstanding. This is not your ordinary Italian restaurant . If you are looking for spaghetti bolognase, garlic bread and cheap red wine go elsewhere. Molina has a very interesting menu, beautifully executed food, a great wine list in simple, unpretentious surroundings. But it is all about the food! We were four adults and three young teenage kids and we sampled the following;

Bruschetta - 4 different bread toppings including tomato salsa, garlic and Gorgonzola cheese
Squid dipped and fried in squid ink beer batter served with crispy deep fried parsley, sounds unusual, it was, ans simple delicious.
Seared tuna in a spicey lime dressing. Fresh, sharp and tasty.
We enjoyed our starters with some Interesting Italian lager beer.

We then enjoyed;
Porcini mushroom risotto- light and delicious
Seafood risotto - wow, you could taste the sea! Mussels, shrimps and squid. All fresh. Cooked in a magnificent, homemade seafood stock.
Lasagne, beef, fantastic
Linguine marinara cooked in a white wine and seafood stock. OMG
Seafood pizza

Washed down with a full bodied Chardonnay from Sicily.

To finish we shared;
Banana panacota
Tiramisu
Chocolate gelato
Limoncello

Cost - B5600

Would we go back - in a heartbeat!

We live in Bangkok and have probably tried Italian at at least 20 places in BKK and 5 in Hua Hin. We drove from Cha am ( 25 Km) to eat at Molina. It was well worth it. Did I mention the service? Great. The owners served our table. Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Congratulations. We will back. If you believe in people who are passionate about their craft, then support this restaurant. We look forward to our next visit to Hua Hin so we can try it out.

This restaurant is run by a great couple that provide attentive and exceptional customer service. Hua Hin has quite a few very good choices for Italian food. This is our local because we are closer to the Khao Takiab area, than downtown, but it is not just for the convenience we keep coming back... the food is great and reasonably priced. Having ordered a good many of the menu items and specials, we have yet to be disappointed. Two suggestions, start with cold cut and cheese plate and if you are feeling like pizza, try the signature pizza Molina. Parma ham, rocket greens and a bit of blue cheese with mozzarella… Yum!
