This was our second trip to Mondos within 4 days. OMG over the top, delicious food. We had manicotti, sausage rigatoni and chicken parmigiana. Over the top, excellent. They serve bread with a dipping sauce.....fantastic. Might make one more trip there before going back to Atlanta!

We heard about Mondo's from friends who had eaten there in the past. Six of us decided to meet there for dinner on a Monday evening. It was surprisingly busy for a Monday. The food was excellent as was the service. It was quite noisy due to the large amount of people in the fairly small area. All-in-all it was... More

This little gem is hidden at the end of a shopping center and simply wonderful! As you can tell it is a local favorite as it was busy on a Thursday evening but the wait was short.

Stopped by 3/17/17, the place was packed at 8p.m. Waited 15-20minutes for a table. The service was excellent!! Drinks never empty and the bread was awesome. I had the Blackened chicken pomadoro and it was excellent! Fed four people for $70, now that was AMAZING! Awesome, authentic Italian for cheap! Hats off to Mondos!

This gustatory delight is yeti-like another gem tucked away in the corner of a nondescript stripmall near Cricket, the cellphone carrier,and not the Brit-PanPacific sports pastime! Look for the twinkling lights and al freaco patio dining, yet fret not!! This is where you want to sample fresh-made pasta,not @ Whole Foods! Nada on the menu is amiss nor a near... More

We are staying in the area for a month and had read about this restaurant in the local guides. The food was fabulous! I had the scallops on mushroom risotto with broccoli rabe. Oh my. Very tasty. Lots of garlic slices which I especially enjoyed. My husband had the short rib lasagna. Excellent. We both had a Caesar salad which... More

Finally dined at Mondo's on Monday evening. Great service & most delicious food. The Gorgonzola Salad was the perfect starter & they didn't cheat on the Cheese. The Lasagna was made with a pulled rib meat that was amazingly different & tasty. The Spaghetti & Meatballs & Manicotti were superb. The Salmon & Veggies were a hit! Especially for fam... More

This is not a high price Italian restaurant. Great food--spaghetti and meatballs--fettuccine alfredo--salads--etc. Been there a number of times and it is great.

I confess we would not necessarily have found this gem of an Italian restaurant had it not been recommended to us. It is tucked away in a strip mall on Folly Road and what a find it is! There is a small outside patio with a bar which is very welcoming and a pleasant spot to linger if your table... More
