    I have loved this restaurant since the late 1990s. I even had my rehearsal dinner at the old location in 1998. Now we bring our children and they love it, too. My 18 year old daughter had to have dinner here before moving to college. Thanks for all the memories!

    The absolute BEST Italian in DFW. Menu isn't as Americanized as most places. You won't find "Alfredo" and such. Much more authentic, with a Northern Italian empahasis. Been going here since 1986. NEVER have had pasta that was overcooked. Always Al Dente. Always on point. Must admit, though, I haven't ever tried the pizza. I have heard it's good, but there's just too much else to choose from for me.

    Great birthday experience, I believe the owner help serve my party of ten and she was a absolute joy, the staff is very nice ad quick. But the food is 100% the star of my visit. My party of ten all raved over the food, large vegetarian options and great drinks. 10-10 recommend.

    Pasta water should have been salted more. Their homemade fettuccine is more like thin egg noodles. Not thrilled they did away with BYOB.

    I was entertaining g an out of town guest. Every part of the experience of our dinner was just about perfect: easy reservation, attentive and competent staff, excellent food, assistance to the car after dinner, a chat with the chef. One could scarcely ask for a more enjoyable night out. Thank you.

    Always marvelous food and service. We were celebrating a 94 year old’s birthday, and the staff went out of their way to celebrate her. My husband always has the spicy lasagna, which is outstanding. I had a pasta dish with tenderloin and mushrooms and another in our party had risotto. They brought out a tasty panna cotta for the birthday guest. We will always return as Momo’s is one of our very favorites!

    The service was outstanding from our waiter to the owner who stopped by and help us choose a nice bottle of wine. While it was too hot to eat outside last night, they have a nice patio that has greenery so you aren't looking at a parking lot. Very nice Italian!

    We had a very pleasant evening at MoMo's, and if we lived in the area we'd definitely return. The service was great, and the food was great. Our only issue is that it was so loud that it was hard to have a conversation, which is the primary reason we shared dinner with friends. If you want to have a real conversation, please consider sitting outside on the patio.
