Out for a ladies' lunch, we decided on Molto Bene. We had an infant in a stroller, but that was no problem after we lifted it up the steps. We were welcomed and accommodated at a table along with a high chair that was perfect for a 5 month old. The service was excellent, the food delicious! ( Small plates allowed us to sample several delights such as dusted chic peas, seasoned fries with homemade ketchup and fabulous burratta) Then the arugula salad ( yummy) completed lunch. But wait! The afogato, and spiced latte was the icing on the cake! Will definitely return!

I was disappointed with the service, presentation and finally the food. A lovely local small town destination and nothing else.

We had excellent service and delicious food. We never know how much to order at small plate restaurants but these are really just smaller portioned entrees. We ordered three small plates between my husband and me it was too much. Next time I think he will get full portion and I will get half portion, but it gave us a chance to taste 3 entrees. We especially liked the fish skewers and steak. Our arugula salad was also delicious perfectly dressed and they split a large for us before we asked .My husband gets salad everywhere so he knows good salad.

Two of us dined early on a slow weekday evening when the restaurant had about 20 customers. The eating space is divided into several small sections and it is possible to sit at a tiny bar on chairs that tend to impede incoming customers. A few small cafe tables occupy a raised veranda beside the main street and it could be pleasant to eat there on a mild day, though the space is a bit tight. If you don't enjoy large portions the small plates here are an excellent alternative that also won't break the bank. For starters, a small portion of crisped bread and dipping sauce was OK. The roasted red pepper soup (a special) was spoiled by too much salt but the stuffed zucchini was delightful and would bring me back for more. My wife's small steak was ordered medium but came out well done though it was otherwise flavorful. We shared a slice of olive oil cake with ricotta and fresh fruit that proved to be acceptable but not so special as would warrant repeating. Despite the fact that waiters buzzed about on mysterious tasks, the service was sporadic and pretty slow; however, our waiter was pleasant. We'd certainly consider eating here again, though still on a test basis.
