If you know what Italian food should taste like, Then Monjunis. I recommend you just order Spaghetti with two balls, and mint Tea. Then get a to go box for the other half of your order.

Well, Trip Advisor doesn’t have a 1/2 star option so while I gave Monjunis a 4 star, IMO, they’re good, but not very good. Now I base this on a single meal, so they may be better but based on what I had, this is...More
