Molto Wood Burning Bistro Marlboro

OK, so, Tuscany Catering’s Marlboro location has been renovating what used to be their veggie and fruit section for months now. The rumor was that they were going to open a pizzeria. I found out yesterday that it was more than a pizzeria, more like a sit down and kinda expensive Italian Steakhouse and restaurant.

Still, I had had Tuscany’s pizza way back when they used to make it, and I found their square pie enjoyable and a little different from my usual pie. So I was determined to try the new pizza on opening day - today! They are very close so I thought I would head over during my lunch hour and bring a pie home.

I called and a bored-sounding girl answered. I told her I’d like to order some food that I would pick up. Sorry, she says, we ARE NOT OPEN FOR TAKEOUT YET! I couldn’t help it and burst out laughing. So, no review.



So they forgot to order pizza boxes?


So I am in Tuscany at least 3x a week.
I was told Molto would be open 4/8 , saw their menu last week.
The prices for food other than pizza in a no liquor license restaurant are a bit high.
Do they think they can get $30 for entrees as Cuzins does in the same strip?
Girlfriend has it on her radar for lunch with the girls.
Me I would rather go to Solo Trattoria in Freehold, love his pizza & in over 12 years never a bad meal.
He’s also BYOB.
BTW my go to pizza is Federici’s.


Just checked out the menu. Almost had me at rapini, but the prices do look a bit steep.


So…an Italian/pizza place opened during the pandemic and they’re not doing takeout?? :roll_eyes: Neeeeeeeeeext!


I use to get lunch at Tuscany when my office was on 79, I always enjoyed their food. My last time there over a year ago they had expanded so I guess they repurposed some of that space, not sure I would want to dine there though. Are they just taking the food out of the deli/display cases for takeout and putting it on a plate and in the microwave?? :joy::rofl::joy::rofl::joy::rofl:

Not taking food out of the cases if you look at the menu.
No $130.00 steaks in the market.FWIW even though it’s my primary grocery store I am not a fan of their pizza or meatballs. I don’t anticipate Molto as a lunch spot for me.Way too many great lunch spots in Freehold. BTW has anyone ever eaten in Lemon ? Great spot on route 9 in Freehold lunch & dinner Mediterranean style food.

Re lemon, I seem to remember a few posts in here about that spot. Seemed to get good reviews

Here’s the thread about Lemon
