This restaurant doesn’t look much from the outside but once inside it opens up with wonderful views of Weymouth bay and the beach - especially if you’re lucky enough to get a window seat. My steak was lovely, then we had coffee outside on the...More

Thank you Barbara, we always try our best to get everyone in a window seat. If you are coming during the Summer months, I would recommend booking in advance, it can get really busy during the Summer months. Giuseppe

A lovely restaurant on the beachfront at Weymouth. Great food with suggested wine for each dish. Try the cheesecake - it looks nothing like you would expect and is amazing.

I found this place a bit weird. I couldn't really understand what they were trying to do. They say they offer Italian fine dining. You can see immediately it's not a fine dining establishment. The restaurant is in a bandstand it shares with an amusement...More

Stunning fresh food, amazing location, staff were just great. Yes, prices are perhaps a tad steep, but absolutely worth every penny for a really professional fine dining experience and superb cuisine. Don't miss this place. Would suggest booking a day or two in advance.

You accuse everyone of writing a fake review when they have had a bad experience including myself. Why is this? You said you have me private messaged me but how can this be when I have no inbox to message! My experience was genuine, it took me 3 months to write the review because I was so livid and unable to write about the facts fairly! I am writing to you here because there is NO inbox message and it is a long time after because I have only just seen your reply. I ask you that you try to learn from your mistakes and focus on your business not at playing detective! I asked for my risotto to be returned and once it came back I was ATTACKED by your 'mild mannered manager' because I apparently didn't have a legitimate claim of a hair being in my dinner because the type of mushrooms used were hairy!!! I FULLY bought it to his attention and I left immediately so do not claim that I didn't act as it was the WORST experience I have had to this day in ANY restaurant!

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.
