It is truly unbelievable that this place gets such positive reviews! The pizzas were worse than supermarket pizzas. It seemed as though they'd been made from ready made frozen pizza bases, ready made tomato sauce with a bit of cheese sprinkled on top. I've had better pizza from a midnight kebab shop.

Having been here a few times in the past this restaurant is stuck in a time warp, all except the prices... £4 for a pint of lemonade!!! Most pastas are simple and can be made at home. I was even surprised to see that the 'special' has never changed. My main chicken in a lemon/wine and I thought cream sauce... More

Molise is a pleasant, innocuous spot in Italy but, like their competitor down the road, this spot is run by folk from Portugal! Food still not bad, and I am very partial to their spicy pizzas, but there should be no surprise their best wine offering is vinho verde!

My fiancee and I visited this restaurant last night and had a lovely meal. The steak and duck were very well cooked and the staff really friendly.

Me and my partner went on a Friday night without booking, luckily they were able to accomodate us. The restaurant was full with a great atmosphere. Service was quick. Wasn't keen on the house white wine. Food was tasty and value for money...£8.50 for a pizza :) And around the same cost for a lasagne. Will definitely be going back.

Been a few times and sadly feel this place is going downhill. The menu needs to be changed or alternated, as there are the same vegetarian dishes for as long as I can remember. Same specials too! Service is hit and miss and with all the other vibrant places around its a shame to see this lovely place lose out.
