The parking is terrible, especially for a disabled person. The food was delicious but sparse, especially for the cost.
Our server Megan was delightful, bright, and attentive! Thanks Megan!
The hostess very rude by been on phone as we enter and not greet us properly. She tried to seat us while also been on phone and we had to repeat our names at least twice to her while on phone. I had made reservations on open table for three people. We were taken our seats by a waitress, the table we were taken two was very small and we requested a bigger table. We pointed to one and was told it was reserved be that there was know one else there at 4:00 pm on a Saturday and no one ever showed up while we were there the whole time. As our food arrived we really couldn’t enjoy from the cold a/c blown directly over us making our pasta, and pizza cold. So really after cold food we couldn’t really enjoy it was time to go. So I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. It’s over priced and the people really weren’t that welcoming from the start.
The most amazing home made Italian food. And the cheese wheel was insane!!
This restaurant has declined over the past two years. The quality of the food was disappointing as compared to prior visits. Appetizers were good, but the Spaghetti a la Vongole tasted like iodine and the tiramisu was splashed with alcohol to the point where it was soggy. It seems to me that the portions have increased in size at the expense of the quality.
I was greatly looking forward to monello after a friend had recommended me. My boyfriend and I wanted to come here for Valentines Day. That was our first mistake. They offered a special Valentine’s Day menu which most places do, however it seems they raised their prices for this event which made me upset and not excited to be spending so much. Especially since I looked at their regular menu and noted that the pricing seemed reasonable. Second, what Italian place doesn’t serve bread as an appetizer?! They gave us Lima Beans. Yeah. Not worth the price we paid for the pasta.
Super overpriced for what you get (especially the wine selection). Enjoyed the food and atmosphere but unfortunately will not be going back.
V-day dinner date.
I’ve been here a million times and I keep coming back. Love this place!
We expected more for the money - even bread was extra cost. The food was good but not as good as many other Italian restaurants we have eaten at
We had a lovely birthday celebration here two nights ago. Great food and good service.
Just amazing! Wish they'd open one up in the SF Bay Area! Everything about it is 5 star.
Great place, just not my type of food
The food was delicious!
Meatballs and Cheesewheel pasta were our favorites!
Awful placewithprettyawful food
I was recommended here by a friend and was able to visit during the last Restaurant Week for lunch. I'd come back for the gnocchi and battuta di pollo alla griglia. I really want to try spaghetti neri con polipo next time though!!
Excellent Brunch!!!! Our waiter was also excellent and very helpful with selections!!!
Live in TX but love Little Italy when in San Diego. Monello's food was very good.I had the black ink spaghetti and octopus. It was delicious but my favorite dish was the butternut squash soup. It was the perfect warmer for a cool evening.
Nice venue, did not feel crowded or rushed. Only glitch was a small error on the check, but will definitely return.
Delicious food and wine on tap! Definitely recommend...get the cheese wheel special
