The comfy interior

Molto Bene is a classic and contemporary Italian eatery that will not let you down. Located at 18401 Detroit Avenue, the eccentric eatery may fool some based on its facade. Looking like a mid-century home it is generally just looked past as nothing, but that is not the case once inside. The interior features a dining area and gelato station. There is a handful of different options of flavors with all being super tasty. With comforting decor and a warm vibe you will feel at home instantly.

When some locals were asked about their dining experience they were quick to respond with enthusiasm. Stephanie Toole a local mom, coach, and Lakewood High School staff member a shared her thoughts:

“I first discovered Molto Bene while walking the dogs. The sumptuous smells coming from there as we walked by peeked our curiosity. We live in the neighborhood and decided to walk there for dinner one fall evening. It did not disappoint!  The food was fabulous and the atmosphere is warm and cozy. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. We have been back several times and are sure to dine there again.”

It is the perfect place for people of all ages. Another Lakewood local and Lakewood High School alumni, Rechelle Ray, says, “The small eclectic place pairs perfectly with the delicious meals. Everything feels like it is made with love.”

Aside from the at home vibe, Molto Bene provides a menu that is expansive,  delicious, and best of all: affordable. The only downside is that the restaurant is quite small in size, with only a handful of tables the eatery does not take reservations.

Molto Bene is a great restaurant for all people no matter the occasion; there is fast and friendly service that equates to a great time out.
