Mollie has the BEST sauce in the United States! The spinach ravioli is wonderful as is her fresh fruit dessert, minestrone, and everything else I have tried. Yes, the staff is all Italian, but I have not had any bad experiences with any of them. They have been child-friendly and accommodating. Perhaps the other reviewers are not familiar with Montecito...those people are not sycophants and they are comfortable with big money. I have even spotted Hollywood stars there gabbing on their phones ""Guess where I am...MOLLIES!!!"" As for the value, the bill was much easier to swallow (forgive the pun) than say, at the Four Seasons. I recommend it to my friends and they all say the same thing I do..YUM!
Pros: Wonderful food, great location
Cons: Parking can be tricky, kid-friendly, but I have never seen babies or toddlers there
