Review of Molinari's - CLOSED

Our visit was certainly a nicer experience than my two previous attempts when they still had that silly blackboard menu and inedible pasta. The "new" printed menu now has a nice range of Italian options and while the total bar service remains a few beers from a glass fronted cooler and a limited range of wines, the food has been upgraded significantly...to a point.

My salad was a nice presentation but the greens were totally wilted.

The fettuccine with seafood was delectable with the pasta nicely al dente and a very thick (cheesy) but succulent sauce. The shrimp (2) were nicely done as were the scallops (2) and the mussels (4) while the small pieces of calamari (2) were hidden in the pasta. Not great value for $23. The red house wine (Merlot) was pricey at $7.50 a glass but at least it was 2/3rds of a good-sized glass and not the usual pretentious "6 oz" you're usually offered.

We really enjoyed our meal at Molinari's! We sat at a table outside at sunset. The service was attentive and friendly. They were welcoming of our well-behaved 7yo and attentive to our needs.

The bruschetta was just divine - lots of plump, juicy and sweet tomatoes with a sweet balsamic glaze. The caprese salad with spinach was also delicious, as was the garlic toast with parmesan.

For mains, the spaghetti had a delicious bright tomato sauce and a firm noodle. Fabulous! We had the carbonara with zucchini and pancetta - also very delicious. We also had the alfredo. Everything was perfect!!

We thoroughly enjoyed every bite from start to finish!! We can't wait to come back. :)

My friend & I went for a pasta dinner at this Italian restaurant on the east end of Little Tub Harbour. The past was excellent. The wine was also very good. Service was also excellent. The only draw-back was no air-conditioning and it was a very hot day. I wish we could have lingered over our meal but it was just too hot to stay.
