Outstanding food, simple yet flavorful.
Mondello never disappoints...such a great cozy neighborhood find.
I always love going to Mondello's, excellent food, great service, and relaxing atmosphere.
Beautiful food, great service!
We were looking for some authentic Italian food, but in the end we found the food to be quite disappointing. Apparently the regular chef was off - and maybe that impacted the food. But it was not great.
The major issue was the waitress who was curt and made us feel rushed at every turn.
This is on our neighborhood. It is our go to favorite, always count on it for a good meal place in Magnolia
Great long-time neighborhood gem. Small cozy restaurant serving very good food. Wait staff was jovial and interactive. Some misses on the entrees and apps, but overall the group liked the food. Desserts were excellent. Pretty deep Italian wine list. Can be a bit cramped for larger groups. Lots of free street parking in the evening. Worth the drive and will be going back.
Was our first time there and we’ll definitely be going back!
delicious!! table not available at our reservation time, so had to wait awhile, but yummy dinner worth the wait
Another perfect meal at Mondello. Service is friendly, quick and knowledgeable. Food is delicious, interesting and generous portions of authentic Italian Italian (not American Italian) along with a great selection of Italian wines. I can’t recommend this highly enough. Our go-to Italian restaurant and a bargain given that it doesn’t charge downtown prices.
Mondellos is the best Italian restaurant in Seattle. Authentic Italian food, handcrafted pasta, fresh ingredients, and a wonderful wine list with reasonable prices. I've not eaten Italian food this good since I last went to Italy! Bravo Mondellos!!
Great food. Engaging service. Ventilation system needs some work with the semi open kitchen.
This is my favorite Italian cafe in Seattle. Nothing against trendier spots like Spinasse/Artusi or Barolo/Cinque Terre, but this is a family-run neighborhood spot with authentic Sicilian fare prepared by a real Sicilian grandmother. There's no better lasagna in Seattle. The wine list is reasonably priced, the food is always fresh and tasty. And did I mention the lasagna?
Mondello is a romantic authentic Italian restaurant. The owners are from Sicily, the italian food very homemade and traditional with some nice touches. My favorite meat dish is the Carttocio. They have amazing appetizers - you must try the Bresaola. And the wine list is second to none when it comes to fine Italians. We had a bottle of Brunello, selected by the owner Corrino - which also came with the story how how he served the same wine at his wedding. I took a date here and we had a magical time. * Stars all the way.
Wonderful dinner for our anniversary. Tasty too. Pasta was my favorite.
Great experience with my wife
Friendly attentive staff and delicious food. The best carbonara in Seattle!
Very good Italian food - like being back in Italy! Friendly service, but the food was really the star of the show.
Found this little gem in Magnolia. Loved it, and would go again!
Love this little Gem in Magnolia. Super Friendly family run and truly authentic Italian food
We just moved to Magnolia and Mondello’s was suggested to us to try. We went for my birthday dinner and were very excited to have found our new family staple. This place is locally owned and operated by a wonderful family. We will for sure be back for the amazing wine, food, atmosphere and service.
Food was ok nothing outstanding to us. The staff was attentive, our waitress seemed nervous and we felt kinda rushed even tho we were the only diners. The ambiance was nice, however the table for 4 was very tiny. One of our dishes came several minutes after the other 3. It was my daughters birthday and they did bring her ice cream with a candle. Thank you!
good pasta, nice ambience. had asked for some specific things when I made the reservation (quiet table, let them know it was a special occasion) and they didn't seem to have seen or remembered if they saw it, the requests. disappointing.
This is a wonderful restaurant. The food is delicious and we had excellent service.
Love the atmosphere. Very authentic Italian. Great service and the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy.
It's a pleasure to have a great neighborhood Italian restaurant. While the menu is very good, the specials are even better! They have gluten-free pasta available.
Our meal was good and the service was timely. We had burrata caprese but we were disappointed in the quality of the tomatoes. This is fresh tomatoe season here in the NW and we would have thought that the restaurant would insists on as much local veggies and fruit as they can get. I also requested their bresaola which was on the menu but was told it wasn’t available.
The guys lasagna was good as was my friends bolognese, my pasta with prawns was okay. A very small serving of pasta with about 5 fishy tasting prawns.
I have had really good meals here in the past so I will definitely go back and will try something else on the menu.
I am so pleased to have finally found a real Italian restaurant in the USA. The food here is authentic Italian, fresh, simple and totally delicious. I can't recommend Mondello enough. It's a fantastic restaurant and well worth visiting even if you're located in downtown Seattle. Grab and Uber and enjoy peace and quiet in cosy little Magnolia village.
Authentic Sicilian fare that cannot be beat. Wonderful, smaller spot, with genuine people who care about your experience as well as the food. All for a very fair price. Try the octopus appetizer, it is amazing!
Mondello is a terrific neighborhood restaurant in Magnolia. Authentic Italian food and great people. We'll be going back!
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant with super authentic Italian food. Fantastic wine list. Superb service.
Hadn't been here in awhile for no particular reason. I had forgotten how charming and authentically Italian it is. Reasonably priced wines, great pasta and warm ambiance. We'll be back sooner next time!
A perfectly wonderful meal!!!
This is our second visit to Mondello. Both times we have enjoyed every bite of our dinner. We liked it so much we jumped on a Groupon offering to come back. We are going down the menu to try different dinner items each visit. YUMMY...
Very good food. Pasta is perfectly al dente. They've been consistent every time my husband and I go. The puttanesca and clam linguine are my favorites. I only gave it 4 stars because the service is a bit lacking. Last time, I waited in line for a table (that I had reserved on OpenTable). My husband was parking the car. The older gentleman (i think he was the owner), failed to acknowledge me and seated the two separate parties waiting in line behind me first. Another hostess assisted me only after I complained.
Disappointed in Risotto; wine appetizers good; good location
Nice Italian meal in local family restaurant. Service was friendly but a bit inattentive at times.
The food was delicious! We believe your caprese is the best in town. Service was excellent too.
We love this trattoria - it transports you to any small town in southern Italy. An absolutely true carbonara is my favorite.
If you have tickets for anything around the Seattle Center, tell them and they'll get you out on time to make the curtain calmly.
