The family who runs the restaurant ar excellent hosts. Feels like we are eating in Italy.
always great service, friendly and delicious dinners YUM!!!!
Very authentic Italian food, very rare in Seattle (and I was born and grew up in Italy).
The food was delicious And the service was exceptional
Try to have this on our list five or so times a year. Always delivers. Staff is very friendly, helpful and on the spot. The specials usually do not disappoint.
Mondello always delivers high quality, authentic wonderful Italian food - if you haven't been: Go now!
We absolutely love this wonderful neighborhood restaurant! Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Each time we have been here we have tried something new and they are all great. We highly recommend this family owned restaurant where you will find it is a family affair. Great for a casual dinner, anniversary or family night out!
A favorite of mine in Magnolia where the service and good are always excellent. Tonight's morel mushroom special was amazing.
The squid ink pasta with shrimp was delicious.
Excellent event!!! It was great meeting the wine maker. It was also fun to sit in the family style arrangement --- and to meet other guests.
Went here once a long time ago and forgot about it until recently, will definitely be back soon and often. The food was delicious and ambiance lovely.
As usual, Mondello's food was awesome. Our party had the carbonara, lasagna, and saltimbaco (sp) and everyone practically licked their plate. Our waitperson was lovely and helpful - offering wine samples before ordering the glass. I just returned from Italy and Mondello had better fare than anything I had there. Nice!
Delicious food and a lovely atmosphere with great service
Small, family owned, intimate and VERY much like being back in Italy! Try the Carbonara!
Lovely staff, lovely restaurant, great wine, amazing pasta.
Everything was amazing. Food was perfect. Wine selection amazing. It was a great place for a date.
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!
