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 piers bandstand the restaurant's 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.

    Great if you have no intolerances - my partner enjoyed the food but sadly as I’m lactose intolerant there were no dairy free alternatives or much I could eat. I asked for an allergy menu or for what they’d recommend and sorbet was the only thing fully dairy free. In a world where many people have intolerances and allergies I’m shocked there was so little on offer for anyone who does suffer. So sadly I won’t be going back personally as the menu us so limited. We were also sat next to a window with a construction as a view despite lovely tables being available overlooking the sea. Ambience was nice and the staff friendly but sadly the food puts a downer on this one.

    Al MoloResponded 1 day ago

    Hello Emma i m sorry but i have to totally disagree with you , our menu have all allergie listed so 9 starter out 13 are dairy free. 13 main are dairy free , and the risotto it can be made without butter and parmesan . so your review is totally unfair and untrue

    Very disappointed. Prawn starter had just two tiny prawns and at £13 felt very overpriced. Seafood linguine very bland with no seafood mixed in pasta. Prawns and mussels on side. Would not go again which is a shame as lovely setting overlooking the bay. In fairness I was not charged for the linguine

    Al MoloResponded 1 day ago

    Artie we apologies for on seafood linguine and you not been charge Regards the King Prawns the are THREE large Prawns around 7cm each the bigger on market in each portion but probably for you was tiny , obviously you don't buy fresh fish otherwise £13 is honest price ..

    The outside looks slightly worn, but the inside is spacious, relaxed and comfortable, with attentive staff at just the right level. The food was lovely, and a far cry from the pizza &amp; pasta chains. Good value with reasonably priced wine. Will definitely go there again next time we stay in Weymouth.

    We were in Weymouth for 3 nights and booked a fish restaurant for each one, but Al Molo was easily the best. To start with we had a wonderful view over the sea from our table and also had a really pleasant waitress to help us choose wine and our food. Not the smartest of waitresses, but so friendly and helpful and ready for a bit of banter. We shared a starter and then my seafood linguine was wonderfully tasty and well-balanced. Everything to a very high standard.

    I've always enjoyed eating at Al Molo's, but Covid has taken its toll of this restaurant. A lack of staff meant that the service was slow. The food was good though my King prawns needed a few more minutes of cooking, but the monkfish was excellent, though quite a small portion. The choc moose desert is always a winner. I will return.

    Booked a table here on a trip along the South Coast Path. Lovely views overlooking Weymouth beach. Very attentive and accommodating staff. Marvelous food. I ordered two appetizers rather than one entree just so I could try more than one of the wonderful recipes described in the menu. I don’t know Weymouth well, but doubt that there is anywhere we would have enjoyed more.

    Hello Buster It's sound strange that a dish came out from my kitchen , the only justification is that you eat first the sea food and then the pasta , as it's fresh pasta if left longer can struck together , but i could not see the plate when it back, or waitress did report anything ,so i am sorry for that , maybe in future if it happen please let us know . thank you for praise the service and atmosphere .

    The food is excellent, the service is excellent, the decor is modern and clean with plenty of natural light and space in the restaurant. The tables are not crammed in close together and there is plenty of room at the tables. The atmosphere is calm and not too noisy. The location is perfect with views out to see. The dining experience is well worth the price.

    Apologies if this comes over rude and offensive but the food quality and taste was underwhelming. Tagliatelle with beef bolognese was very dull, in fact, if you had blindfolded me and put a microwave same meal in front of me I don’t think I could have guessed yours over the microwave meal. Fresh bread option for starter was poor for £7.50. It’s the first and regretfully the last time I will attend / recommend. We visit Weymouth by boat two / three times a year and always look for good quality restaurants. It’s a shame as your location is top quality.

    Hello Is not offensive or rude its you personal experience , obviously we cannot please everyone but if you give you email i can show our pasta machine we made all our pasta in the restaurant , bolognese sauce due high volume of costumer i made fresh every day , maybe you not use of this kind of freshness . I do not understand what you mean been in town two three times a years , you not become regular with two or tree time a year .. hope my last word do not sound rude or offensive Giuseppe
