Was back in the local area and couldn't pass up a meal at Mungo's it's been at least 20 yrs since we had their signature Mungo salad, still as excellent as always. At a new location since before, our meals were very good. If on the east side of the river stop in a for a great meal and service.... More

Great food! Loved the perfectly prepared grilled orange roughy and eggplant Parmesan was delicious! The Mungo salad is fabulous! My husband enjoyed the Beef Soto with baked potato cooked exactly as ordered, medium, and so flavorful. Harvey our server helped me select a wine as well as my entrée. He was spot on with his descriptions of the two wines... More

Seated quickly and the waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Feels like a high-end Italian restaurant at a median price. The food was great. Always judge an Italian Restaurant by the salad, bread and alfredo sauce. All 3 were great.

THANK YOU. Was taught 51 years ago at the finest high end restaurants in St Louis. Andrieno's on the Hill, now Dominic's, Al's Steakhouse on the waterfront, and Rich and Charlie's. Charlie Mugavero taught me how to cook our dishes when I was 16 years old. Charlie died in a plane crash in1973. Charlie's nick name is Mungo. More

Mungo's is a must for a great dinner in the Fairview Heights/O'Fallon/Shiloh area. It is miles above the nearby chains. The house salad and pastas (especially the lasagna and tortellini) are fabulous. Ditto for entrees like veal Marsala and chicken brochettes and the side dish of OBG pasta.

Went last night. Our first time there. The other 2 couples had been there before. Barely sat down and they wanted to take our order, hardly giving us time to get our coats off. Asked to give us a few minutes to look over the menu. Ordered our meals. Salads brought out very quickly. Hardly had time to eat them... More

We could have slowed your service down if you had asked. Would have been quicker than writing this review to make us look bad. More

Have driven past this nondescript building dozens of times without even glancing, until searching for it after hearing how good the food is and reading reviews. Reviews correct about the salad. Enjoyed it. Ordered the medium size mostaccioli in meat and cream sauce. Delicious. The medium provided enough for lunch the next day. Also tried the stuffed orange roughy. Also... More

A group of 12 of us had a reservation for 6:00. Two of us arrived around 5:40, we were immediately seated at our assigned table. We had waters and warm bread w/ butter in front of us within minutes. Everyone comes from different parts of the metro area, so we trickled in and our last two folks did not arrive... More

Went for anniversary, always a good spot for special occasions. It is not cheap, but the food is excellent. We had the steak tony and the chicken tony and salads. Both meals were outstanding. Our server was new but did a great job. Have been here several times and will come back.
