I absolutely love this restaurant! As, a vegan they go out of their way to make me the most amazing meal. I never have to second guess or ask numerous times if something is vegan. Even the bread it vegan! My boyfriend and I had a lovely New Years Eve dinner here. We both looked at one another and said... More

We go to Molinaris fairly regularly and have since their opening 5 years ago. The meal we ate there on a recent Monday was one of the best we have ever enjoyed there. The orecchiette entree (the first pasta dish listed in the pasta section) was outstanding; the sauce was luscious. This is a vegetarian entree, and it is absolutely... More

Hadn't been in a while, enjoyed our visit. We had a large group and everyone was happy with their meals from age 10 to 80. Kids devoured everything from the focaccia bread to gelato/sorbet. The sides were excellent for the steak and salmon dinners. Salmon was a little over-cooked. Waiter was super friendly and accommodating. Only issue was when I... More

This restaurant exceeded our expectations with both food and service. The woman at the front desk at Sayre Mansion recommended it. It is a short drive or walk from there. We arrived on a Monday night with no reservation and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is quiet and sedate. Even though the restaurant was fairly full, the noise level was... More

The girl in the front desk (wears glasses) appeared annoyed for no apparent reason. She asked us to wait for "3 minutes" to be seated in a restaurant with several available seats. We didn't think much of it. 10 minutes later we asked to be seated again thinking an honest oversight might have caused a delay. The same girl said... More

Six of us ate at Molinari's fir the first time this week. We arrived around six pm and the restaurant only had a few tables that were occupied. We were seated promptly and given menus. The waiter we had was young and apparently new. We ordered drinks and they were quickly brought to the table. A member of our party... More

We came back during Lehigh parents' weekend after a wonderful meal here last winter. Though food is still wonderful, on this night one member of our party was served her pork entree uncooked, and when it was finally returned in an edible state, everyone else had finished their meals. These things happen, but when it does, waiter should apologize and... More

Consistently great food! Their pasta dishes are scrumptious!! The staff are very friendly, energetic and provide excellent service. Very impressive!! Loved the Arugala salad and their pasta special had duck confit, which was one of the best pasta dishes we ever had!

We have been here many times over the past years. Waiting for a menu change. Few specials. Always good, but for me I need more variety. Would love if they added ages non- Italian wines to their wine selection.
