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.

The food was excellent. I had the lamb and my husband had the monk fish. Will definitely be back. I’m gluten free and they had these options on the menu which makes dining out simple.

Probably the best restaurant in Weymouth. The service was fantastic, the food was sublime. The price for the wi e was a little high, but a fantastic meal with quality service.

Fantastic location, right on the seafront with elevated views. Cracking food and beverages, albeit expensive. (£9 for a bottle of ale, and £7 for a rocket salad is taking the Mickey somewhat.) The best thing though was the bread with truffle butter. Superb!

First visit to Al Molo. Food was excellent, staff very friendly and atmosphere good. The only critism is that due to a large influx of people, our order got delayed and had to wait a long time for our food. Overall though very good.

This is a superb restaurant with excellent food and wine and attentive staff. We had the sea bream and tortellini followed by chocolate mousse and panda cotta. all the dishes were delicious. The house wine -white Sicilian is very good. Service was paced at the right intervals and the staff were professional and pleasant.

Really good experience. We booked late (about 3 days notice) and although we sat in one of the side rooms, the ambience was good, and the sea views spectacular.
Food and service were superb and we will certainly go again.
