Stopped by 3/17/17, the place was packed at 8p.m. Waited 15-20minutes for a table. The service was excellent!! Drinks never empty and the bread was awesome. I had the Blackened chicken pomadoro and it was excellent! Fed four people for $70, now that was AMAZING! Awesome, authentic Italian for cheap! Hats off to Mondos!

This gustatory delight is yeti-like another gem tucked away in the corner of a nondescript stripmall near Cricket, the cellphone carrier,and not the Brit-PanPacific sports pastime! Look for the twinkling lights and al freaco patio dining, yet fret not!! This is where you want to sample fresh-made pasta,not @ Whole Foods! Nada on the menu is amiss nor a near... More

We are staying in the area for a month and had read about this restaurant in the local guides. The food was fabulous! I had the scallops on mushroom risotto with broccoli rabe. Oh my. Very tasty. Lots of garlic slices which I especially enjoyed. My husband had the short rib lasagna. Excellent. We both had a Caesar salad which... More

Finally dined at Mondo's on Monday evening. Great service & most delicious food. The Gorgonzola Salad was the perfect starter & they didn't cheat on the Cheese. The Lasagna was made with a pulled rib meat that was amazingly different & tasty. The Spaghetti & Meatballs & Manicotti were superb. The Salmon & Veggies were a hit! Especially for fam... More

The Hungry Detective and wife finally made it here after a few months of living in James Island. I lived in Sicily for a year as a young man and found Mondo's pasta to be wonderful!!! My wife had the manicotti which melted in your mouth and tasted perfect. I had the veal parmigiana which was outstanding...the real deal with... More

This is not a high price Italian restaurant. Great food--spaghetti and meatballs--fettuccine alfredo--salads--etc. Been there a number of times and it is great.

I confess we would not necessarily have found this gem of an Italian restaurant had it not been recommended to us. It is tucked away in a strip mall on Folly Road and what a find it is! There is a small outside patio with a bar which is very welcoming and a pleasant spot to linger if your table... More

Mondo's is our New Years Eve tradition. I called early in the week just to make sure nothing had changed regarding needing a reservation (not needed for small parties). There was no mention on the call of closing early. My husband and I arrived at 8:05, walked in and were told the restaurant closed at 8. We had to leave... More

Uncommon in my family but a party of eight all gave Mondo's an A+ for food, service and atmosphere. If you'd like a small negative, if you're claustrophobic you may not like it. There's no way they could squeeze another table in. Since I got to pick up the tab on this one I know a party of 8 can... More

Food was amazing. Service was great. Loved the atmosphere. There was also an outdoor eating space. We didn't sit there but looked like a perfect space to have a drink & watch the game!
