    Birthday celebration and we all enjoyed our pasta dishes. I had lasagna. My wife had fettuccine with meatballs, and my daughter had gnocchi. I think the pasta must’ve been handmade because it tasted so delicious save room for dessert because the cannoli and the cheesecake were amazing.

    The food is absolutely delicious and super authentic! The experience is fun if you're there with friends or romantic if you're there with your significant other. Their lasagna, their sauces are all amazing! The halibut was EXCELLENT, the raviolis are delicious. When I went with my brothers and sister we ended up all eating everything more family style because everybody had gotten something so delicious we all needed to eat not just ours but theirs, too! Best egg plant Parmesan I have ever had. No matter what we've eaten every time we've gone he leaves feeling full but well because of the quality of the food. The service is excellent and Sofana is amazing

    We were greeted and were given a choice of where to sit. We decided to sit outside since it was a lovely evening. There is a covered area so it was shaded. I had the carbonara and my friends both had the Ravioli with the Marsala sauce. Everything was wonderful. The wine suggestions were perfect and the service was excellent! The Marsala sauce was so good it was all sopped up with a piece of the lovely warm bread. Thank you Mondello’s for a lovely evening and a great meal!

    We had to wait to be seated, wait for a menu, wait for the specials. There was no customer service, they wanted us in and out as quickly possible. They didn’t say a single word to us unless we flagged them down or asked for something. My date was very annoyed and it while he food was great, the service soured our night.

    This is a very small restaurant but the ambience makes us feel as if were actually in Italy. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. They have a surprisingly large number of selections for such a small place. We were glad to see that business is picking up now that Covid doesn't hold such large cloud over people's heads.

    Food was inconsistent. Lasagna needed more cheese and had cinnamon in it which is more a Greek thing than Italian. Whole fish was good. Wine quality was marginal and high priced. Dessert was very small.

    The food and service at this restaurant are always great. I was a little less thrilled with my fettucine being al dente this time since it tasted a bit chewy but it's always homemade. The ambience is spot-on and very authentic and charming. They have a nice wine menu and the desserts are delicious as well. Try it, you can't go wrong!

    Really delicious meal for Valentine’s Day. Will be coming back. Nice ambience. They do charge $60 for a $16 bottle of wine, but that’s par for the course for restaurants to stay open. Still enjoyed every bit of my outing!

    We had a wonderful evening. I believe we were attended by the owner who was friendly and clearly loves what she does. All our food was full of flavor. The cannoli was the best I’ve ever had—the pastry was light and crisp and the filling like just sweet enough clouds. I highly recommend!
