Pizza was great. Pastas are homemade and a staple of their menu
The food was great and Eleesa provided us outstanding service. She ensured we wanted for nothing. We will be back.
The food was great! Lots of different choices and a good wine list too. The specials change every night depending on what's in season.
It was great their waiter made it special for our 2 year anniversary
Incredible food. Great service. Pleasant ambience. What more could you ask for?

The food was delicious and the service was great!
Amazing food! Great service!
Asked to take our time - and food was out quicker than I have ever received! Pasta was overcooked, sauces were underwhelming. Small plates given with drinks were awful. Only redeeming item were the drinks.
We had a wonderful experience at Monello on a Thursday evening. They sat us right away and our server Lewis gave excellent recommendations that we went with. We got the weekly special cheese wheel dish along with the butternut squash gnocchi and lasagna. I would certainly return again!
