At Molino's Ristorante, owner and native Italian Kanuccio Purisico captivates diners with a menu of mouthwatering Northern Italian fare. Dishes of calamari fritti, and clams oreganato entice appetites, and burbling waterfalls beckon outdoors as patrons find themselves in sunny Adriatic here in beautiful Bonita Springs. Our culinary team dazzle guests with authentic dishes such as the lambata di vitello alla griglia, a grilled veal chop accessorized with hot cherry peppers and mushrooms, or the rollatine melanzane, ricotta cheese rolled into thinly sliced eggplant and topped with tomato sauce. For those searching for ocean-fresh seafood try our salmone onde e terra, a cut of broiled salmon luxuriously lounging in a rich cognac sauce with a posse of peas, prosciutto, and mushrooms.

    Started off wrong with the server seating us at possibly the worst table by the wall in an empty restaurant. My wife had to ask for them to move us to a table by the window. Once moved our server was very nice had some great recommendations once we asked for them. We had two appetizers both which were very good and came out quickly. Our main courses were wonderful as well. No dessert or coffee as we had other plans. Even though we did specifically add anniversary to our reservation not one thing was mentioned. We tipped accordingly as our second server was very good. Our recommendation to the managers would be pay attention to open table for special occasions as it would make a difference. Even though we enjoyed our meal the likely hood to return would only be if we were in the area and wanted a good meal. As Locals we like to frequent those restaurants that go that extra step. Not those that treat guests as vacationers.

    Service was great! My husband loved his gnocchi dish.. I got the chicken parm… it was not good.. it had a bad aftertaste, perhaps the breading they use? I wasn’t sure..it just wasn’t good in my opinion. Chicken wasn’t tender or flavorful. The sauce and pasta was very good though. If you decide to dine here, do not order the chicken parm…

    Overall, a good experience. Our waiter was attentive, yet not pushy. He was friendly and well trained. The only disappointments were the bread, not fresh. Probably should have sent it back. And the mashed potatoes with my veal had a “fake “ taste. Perhaps I should have ordered pasta on the side. It was a pleasant evening, we were never rushed. We will return.

    We had an evening reservation arrived on time, no hostess to seat us so the bartender seated us in very close proximity to another party of 4 even when there were numerous tables that weren't so crowded. Staff friendly but not attentive, we had to ask for everything from refilling our water glasses to a refill on bread and cheese for the dipping sauce. Food was speedy because they wanted everyone to finish so they could leave, food was hot but no taste and bland. again had to ask for Parmesan for the top of the pasta. Overall not impressed felt rushed. When leaving most of the staff sitting at an empty table just waiting for everyone to leave, felt very uncomfortable. Won't be revisiting.

    Went there for Mother’s Day with friends. Our table was situated by the front door which made for a lot of patrons coming and going; table could have been angled better to accommodate the foot traffic. Service was a bit slow due to limited staff, don’t blame them after all it was Mother’s Day. Food was good no complaints. Overall it’s a nice place to eat and we will return!

    We both had entrees with a red sauce. My eggplant with penne was swimming in the tasteless red sauce. My husband had spaghetti with meatballs and sausage. The meatballs were bland and the sausage was’grey’ and looked unappealing. On a good note, the tiramisu was good and the coffee was excellent. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. We do not plan on going back.
