Great find in a strip mall: expansive menu with many reasonably priced options. Garlic rolls and family style salad were generous portions and delicious. The pasta with clams contained more clams than we have ever seen on this dish. The place has a casual, family...More

Presentation sloppy - Minestrone soup too much liquid, splashed all over bowl, lacks flavor. Presentation sloppy- salad, not enough tomatoes, cucumbers Veal Parm could have had chopped parsley for color. Cannoli- overpowering almond flavoring shell was like a hockey puck. Will not return ever!

Molinari's is a small family owned Italian restaurant that has excellent food and service. We have dined at Molinari's several times and have tried various items on the menu and always were pleased with the dinners. The sauce or as some call it "gravy" is...More

I really enjoyed the flavor of the pizza here. The only draw back was I enjoy lots of toppings. When I asked the server when I was placing my order she said I did not need to order double toppings. I should have done so....More
