The food was delicious. Service was just right. Atmosphere was relaxing. We started with bruschetta... of course. Main dishes included linguini with scallops, spicy penne with vodka sauce, linguine with chicken, and scallops with veggies. Dessert were gelatos... all good. Great dinner and experience.

We loved hearing how much you enjoyed Mondo's. You can't go wrong with our chocolate hazel gelato on a hot day in Charleston. Thank you for the praises. Hope to see you soon.

Mondo's is not an easy find without a GPS, but worth the visit. Our opinion is good Italian food is sometimes hard to find in the south. If that is your perspective, Mondo's is for you. We received excellent service and help from Mike with...More

This little gem is hidden at the end of a shopping center and simply wonderful! As you can tell it is a local favorite as it was busy on a Thursday evening but the wait was short.

Hi, Msgreendean! Mondo's pasta is made in-house and there are plenty of egg-free options available. Just ask your server, and they can help steer you in the right direction with some vegan-friendly entrees!
