Ate a late dinner at the bar. Very good service and good food. We had a pizza, which wasn't bad at all. Not the best, but pretty good. Also, the lasagna, which was good. Not sure I would return, but it was pretty good.

I had never eaten here and heard many raves about it. I'm thinking its because famous people go there. Service was "good". Food "very good". But wine list was inadequate. There were only 2 chardonnays and they were either $56 or $59. That is ridiculous. You can do better on a cruise ship!

This Trattoria apparently boasts TV celebrities amongst their clientele, the food was very good though I found the wine list expensive.

After the fire and floods of late 2017-early 2018 we wanted to show our support to the local restaurants, and Trattoria Mollie did not disappoint. We sat outside in the early spring time warmth, and lunch was delightful. The table ordered Insalata Tricolore with shrimp, Branzino all griglia with fresh vegetables, and the lunch special of ravioli stuffed with squash, a salad and iced tea. Each were cooked beautifully—the green beans and broccoli a bright, fresh, appetizing green, the ample portion of pasta tender and in a satisfying, somewhat rich sauce. Complimentary bread was tasty and had a crisp crust—there was no butter but the table did have olive oil. Dessert of tiramisu was light, and might have had a bit more oomph of flavor, but was pleasant. We were pleased to see that the main Montecito road looked as if it had come back in full force.

Over the years I have enjoyed lunch or dinner at this long standing restaurant. It’s always been pricey but worth the it. Sadly my last visit just after Coast Village Road reopened after the mudslides, was most disappointing. There were only a few tables and we did have a 6:30 reservation so early enough to not get our order behind other diners. With our first courses, lentil soup, prosciutto and melon (not in season) Caesar salad and Caprese salad, finally served after 40 minutes by the only waitress we again waited for our main course....the food was not up to par, my seafood not fresh, the veal presentation below previous visits.
So my conclusion is that Mollie must be in the kitchen for this restaurant to shine!
