Description: Al Molo brings Italian cuisine from the Emilia Romagna region - voted by Forbes magazine as Italy's greatest gastronomic treasure - together with a modern style. Chef Giuseppe Vannucci combines his origins in traditional Italian cooking with his training in London resulting in a restaurant that brings Italian metropolitan chic to the seaside resort of Weymouth. Using local produce with the finest Italian ingredients the restaurant prides itself on quality food with a difference in a venue which provides an amazing setting. Whilst dining on excellent cuisine you can enjoy panoramic views of Weymouth Bay and the Jurassic coastline in a relaxed and grand setting. Respecting the building's origins as part of the pier's bandstand the restaurants decor nods to the past incorporating art deco features together with modern design. You sense a feeling of luxury as you walk through the doors. Whether meeting for a business lunch or romantic dinner for two Al Molo caters for every occasion. Whatever the season, Al Molo provides the perfect location.

I have visited Al Molo many times, for Lunch, Dinner and Wine tasting evenings and have yet to have a bad dish let alone a bad meal. The staff are excellent, attentive, professional and knowledgeable. Andrea, the Sommelier, is always happy to advise on the extensive wine list. Personally I prefer to let him choose the best wine to pair with my food, he never fails to impress and has introduced me to some delicious wines I wouldn't have chosen without his expert guidance.
Giuseppe, Fabio and the team are continually producing dishes that cannot be faulted. The waiting staff are always professional, happy to accommodate any requests you may have and are never far away when your glass needs a top up.
The restaurant itself has panoramic views across the Bay, very comfortable seating, an outdoor seating area for warm summer evenings and an inviting and extensive bar area where an excellent list of cocktails are mixed.
Fine Dining doesn't have to mean expensive dining, if you want to splash some serious cash on a special bottle of wine you certainly can, but that is not compulsory. A 3 course meal with a bottle of mid priced wine needn't break the bank. If you want an special dining experience with a friendly atmosphere Al Molo is the business.

We visited Weymouth in April for my girlfriend's birthday and we were recommended Al Molo by our host! We decided to give it a try and we are glad we did! The food is absolutely delicious, wonderfully presented and very reasonable priced! They even have a set menu,3 course dinner for £24,50 which i think is very cheap for the service you get! Cocktails are to die for and the deserts are mouth watering...
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and we even had a lovely liqueur (Frangelico i think is called) for free after the meal which was a nice touch!
We will definitely come back when around!
Thanks!

Myself and my husband spent an evening at Al Mono on Friday evening, we were lucky enough to have beautiful sunshine so made it even nicer .

We first enjoyed a drink on the outside terrace overlooking Weymouth bay with a cocktail before we went inside to a table again over looking the sea.
What a beautiful setting and wonderful staff , they were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble , we had food from the set menu and there was a varied good amount of choices.

It was all beautifully presented and it tasted amazing. We spent a few hours in there and we weren’t rushed at all.

We were recommended wine from the menu which was the house wine which meant we were not sold the dearest on the menu.

It was overall a lovely experience and would definitely recommend.
