Not sure the hype of this place. Maybe people like me want to love it but it falls short of excellent. The upside: sitting downstairs especially upon first entering gives you a feeling your not in Hightstown or even NJ anymore. The upstairs is nothing special with gray walls high boy chairs and somewhat sterile. The menu of food choices... More

We held our son's Wedding Rehearsal Luncheon here in May 2016. The food is excellent! The service Excellent. Clean. NYC feel in a quiet small town. The wait staff all very nice and helpful. We booked the loft, had the entire upstairs to ourselves with private bathroom. Have booked again for our daughter's baby shower and am looking forward to... More

Second time here, first for lunch and tonight for dinner. The cheese plate was awesome, pumpkin ravioli delicious and the salad was tasty and just the right size. Dessert choices were great too! We will definitely come back!

I stumbled upon Molto Bene when I was looking for a place to have dessert while out with some family memebers and I have been a fan ever since. The menu changes seasonally, but is comprised of delicious homemade small or large plate entrees, amazing salads, flat breads, soups, and paninnis. The service is always excellent and the food delicious.... More

If you want to have a terrific lunch in a charming restaurant, then definitely go to this restaurant. We sat at a round table by the bay window and no one rushed us. The waiter was polite and efficient. We had delicious salads to start. My arugula salad with fresh figs and almonds was amazing! We had the baked eggplant... More

This was our first visit since the restaurant moved from its original location to the site of the former Blue Rooster restaurant about two years ago. The decor is pleasant, but nothing special. This is an Italian BYOB restaurant but offers a more eclectic set of choices than pasta dishes (although pasta dishes are on the menu). The food is... More

This is a small restaurant- casual but with good food. It is not inexpensive but because it has small plates as well as regular meals it is a good place to try new combinations of foods without breaking the bank. It was very busy on Saturday night but a reservation,made earlier in the day made it easier. The only down... More

I come here to eat lunch from time to time. They never disappoint. The service is always wonderful, and even with my lunch break constraints, they always bring the food as needed and it's always fantastic. The chicken burger and pork sandwich are my favorites. Highly recommended.
