Andrea Moletta (born 23 February 1979 in Cittadella, Province of Padua) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer for UCI Continental team Miche-Silver Cross.

In March 2007, Moletta crashed badly in the Milan-San Remo race, and it was thought that his season would be over. However, six months later Moletta was recovered and started in the 2007 Vuelta a España.

During the 2008 Giro d'Italia, Moletta's father was caught with Viagra and unidentified fluids, and as result of this, Moletta's team Gerolsteiner withdrew Moletta from racing. Viagra was not banned in competition, so no formal doping charge was filed against Moletta, although the doping authorities (WADA) were looking at the matter. Later it was found that the fluids were the hormone Lutelef, which can be used as a new form of blood doping. Moletta was later cleared from any wrongdoing.

Since 2009, Moletta rides for Miche-Silver Cross.
