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.

We went for 7.15 dinner. The restaurant was lovely, we had a table by window overlooking the sea and beach. Lovely staff. My friend really enjoyed her meal I ordered lamb, gorgonzola and walnut ravioli, I found it very salty and I would have preferred the pasta cooked a little longer. I should have mentioned it at the time, but my friend does not like a fuss so I said nothing. It could well have been the cheese. I did eat it and drank a lot of water. We would return again when next in Weymouth.

The views are amazing, the staff super friendly - I honestly couldn't rate this restaurant highly enough.

Overall the service was pretty poor. We had to wait for two starters as they forgot them (although in all fairness they gave us these two for free) we had to continually wait for drinks. Fries tasted like oven chips and my steak was dry. I asked for mustard and again had to wait (so my food was getting cold). Wouldn't go back again in a hurry which is a shame because when we ate here before it was excellent. Al Molo is not cheapest of places to eat in Weymouth and I would have expected better!

Stunning restaurant and the waiters/waitresses really are welcoming and know their stuff!! We never had long waits or unfriendly staff and the food was delicious but not too pricey with a great menu choice. The view is simply stunning overlooking the sea.. ideal for couples and families. Would highly recommend and would love to return!!

Been here before and always do if in the area.The service is very old school and formal in a nice attentive way which adds to the experience.
The food is amazing and different from the usual restaurant fare.
I would describe it as seeming expensive till it touches the taste buds then it seems worth every penny.

Always consistently delicious. Everyone is welcoming and ensure you enjoy your experience. The views are unlike any other in the southwest. It's the only seafront restaurant in Weymouth. The food is delicious. The homemade pastas are amazing. The lamb, incredibly cooked. Great wine selection as well. Great value for the price.

I booked a table at Al Molo for last Sunday and when we arrived we were informed that due to a glitch on the opentable booking system the kitchen had just shut when we arrived, they tried to contact me about it but we had no phone reception, but what I believe was the owner gave us a lovely table with a beautiful view and brought us menù with our promise to be quick with the orders. Lesson learned, I'll call for my booking next time.

We ordered and when the food arrived it was really good, the cabbage and taleggio parcels were simple and very tasty, My fiancé's grilled sea bass was cooked very well, juicy and well seasoned, and my seafood fresh linguine were rich and tasty with a very good selection of mixed seafood in it.

I understand how the staff must have felt when we were given a table and menus despite the kitchen being shut, being a hospitality worker myself, but service was lovely and the food very good nonetheless.

I will definitely go back at a more suitable hour to enjoy a good meal in a very lovely place.

Last but not least, I want to personally thank all the Al Molo staff for their patience with having to serve us after opening times. LEGENDS!!!!
You saved our night!
See you soon!
Ivan.
