About

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.

Cozy, authentic BYOB Italian restaurant with home-made pastas, a consistently interesting list of daily specials and splendid Neopolitan pizzas.

I Monelli's pizza is the best! Thin crust and bursting with flavor. They have spoiled me. This is the pizza I crave.

Great place to dine, take friends or just to have a fantastic meal & it is BYOB which makes it very affordable.
Service is always very good and most of the time the noise level is very low unless there is a big group ( this is NOT vert often....most table are of 2 - 4 or 6 people).
Great place !!

This restaurant is a neighborhood gem. Original Italian establishment. Tiny, cozy family-owned. You feel like you're dining at your grandma's house! Authentic Italian food standards as well as very unique entrees freshly prepared, pasta al dente and tasty pizza. I couldn't ask for more! Wonderful people. Great service and it's a BYOB!

We had a group of 10 and it was fantastic. Great service, outstanding food and easy to chat but lively enough that it felt fun. Every person in our group loved it and only two of us had been there before. Lots of new fans in our group.

Pizzas awesome, pastas were really good - homemade, tasty, authentic, and the salads were fantastic.

We'll be back.

Overall, we had a great meal. The food was amazing, the space very charming, and the staff very friendly, albeit, not incredibly attentive. It did take some time to get service from our waiter, which became somewhat an annoyance as the place wasn't really busy. But bygones are bygones, it was a wonderful evening and we will be going back without question.

The food is always very tasty, fresh and creative. We tried the appetizer special Bruschetta that was made with goat cheese, prosciutto & black truffles it was amazing! Their calamari is the best!

The food was very good. Service was a little slow at the start but got better. Calamari was excellent as were the Salads. Entrees were ample and delicious
