A perfect lunch! We were the first ones there and were made to feel like special guests. The service outstanding and the food delicious!! The chicken marsala was one of the best I've ever tasted! Great choices on the menu will keep me coming back!!

This place used to be much more crowded, but with covid19 restrictions it is much roomier and more comfortable. Very good drinks for the price and the food is excellent!

We have been passing this establishment for 5 years and finally decided to go for dinner. Have to say - from the time you walked in to the time you left they couldn’t have been nicer. The food was great, service spectacular.

Do not hesitate to try this restaurant; it literally is Molto Bene! The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. There’s indoor and outdoor dining options. Although it’s located on a busy (Merrick Road), the management did a great job of creating a nice dining experience outdoors and we enjoyed our meal immensely on a mild September evening. We didn’t order dessert yet the waiter came out and surprised us with a wonderful slice of chocolate mousse. Very classy move and a great business move. This has become my husband’s new favorite restaurant and he’s a tough critic. Bon appétit!

First time dining here for my boyfriend's birthday. Couldn't have been more pleased. He's a bit of a restaurant snob, so I was a little hesitant. No worries. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the ambiance was right on point. I will definitely return to try something else on the menu. The only downside was deciding on what to order. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

It was my Husband’s birthday and I thought we’d try a new restaurant. We were both VERY glad we did. There was outdoor seating which was a lovely setup except for the fact that it’s right on Merrick Road and there were several loud muscle cars that sped by during our meal. Totally no reflection or fault of Molto Bene; We could’ve opted to eat inside. Our Waiter was EXCELLENT which totally enhanced our dining experience and the food was AMAZING. The menu is extensive with plenty of choices and also several specials for that particular day. Also, The prices are very reasonable. My Husband is not easy to impress. His stock answer whenever I ask how his meal is is always “it’s OK” but this time when I asked him he looked at me and enthusiastically and said, “It’s delicious!.” (He had the Veal Parmigiana). I booked a reservation through Open Table and noted it was a special occasion/birthday and the Waiter surprised us with a chocolate mousse dessert equipped with a lit candle. It was a really nice touch and on the house. Very classy. We will definitely be back. Trust me, this restaurant is literally MOLTO BENE!
