A word from I Monelli Trattoria Pizzeria
When I first Opened I MONELLI my intention was to share the cooking style, flavors & recipes that originated from my hometown.

Our ingredients are always FRESH to achieve the best taste, just as my mother used to back home. By using SIMPLE & FRESH ingredients, I prepare various specials every week from salads to main entrees that are not found on the menu.

To me, it’s all about the TASTE & QUALITY! Since we can't take you back to Italy, I have brought these dishes here to share with you.

Diner Reviews
  • "Nice laid-back atmosphere, delicious pizza that's not quite thin and not deep-dish but consistently delicious. Always friendly service and very reasonably priced. Salads, eggplant appetizer, risotto also all yummy!"

  • "This is one of the best finds. We shared calamari and bruschetta apps and continued on with communal dining with pizza and arugal salads so lightly dressed with a little EVOO and lemon...so good. Crust was light with such a great crunch, topping were well proportioned. Only "complaint" was not enough pineapple on the Hawaiian. Service was fun, informative and so inviting. All guest were having a great times for yet another snowy, slushy night. No room for dessert & will save some for next time. It is a BYOB which somehow I missed; liquor is available across the street."

  • "We live around the corner, and this is one of our favorite restaurants! Fantastic pizza, especially the I Monelli! It's a cozy atmosphere and BYO, making it great for a casual, affordable date night or out with friends and family. But it's also great for pickup or delivery. If you're not in the mood for pizza, there's good salads, apps and pasta too, but pizza is the standout. Recommend the suppli! We went for Valentine's Day, and were disappointed that we were restricted to a $35 prix fixe menu (that did not include pizza), but for the other 364 days of the year, it's a must!"

  • "I felt that this place was a a bit over priced for the quality of food. One of the dinners we ordered came out cold. I'd consider going back to share a dish just because it's walking distance for me."

  • "Really wonderful pizza and unlike what you find elsewhere--not super-thin Neapolitan and not Chicago-style deep dish. Very buttery and delicious!"

  • "We enjoyed a very nice evening celebrating a family birthday. I Moneli set a big table and served up a hearty fare of traditional, Italian specialties. The BYOB policy meant that we had the wine we liked at an affordable price. I think the server could have been a bit more attentive but this is a place where I'm sure we will return."
