Quick lunch

It has been a while since I've been there. but they had the best Spinach salad. I don't like spinach, but I got hooked on that salad. OMG, it is SOoooo good. I've had other dishes from there but I can't get enough of the spinach salad! Try it. You will love it!

My husband and I went for an Anniversary dinner. We had excellent food. We started with the house pinot grigio and the sauteed artichokes. It was very tasty. We had the Mungos salad, which is a typical Italian salad, but very good. I chose the lobster castiglione, which was excellent and I had plenty to take home. My husband wasn't... More

On a Girls Night Out we stopped at Mungo's, a favorite spot for my relatives. It was a great choice. The food and service were both great and we will surely return again.

We accompanied the appetizers with a fine Chianti. The entrees will also very good. Two of us had the Beef Tony, the others had a Pizza and the Grouper.... More

This is a nice restaurant with the higher prices to match. Great service but smaller portions of their just ok tasting Italian dishes. Maybe a nice place for to take a date. It might impress her but bring more cash. They are trying to be fancy but they need a new chef or recipes. Take it from an Italian. They... More

Stopped with a few friends for dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant was full but not overly so. Our waiter was excellent but none of us felt the food was worthy of a return visit. The salad was drowned in dressing. The bruschetta had almost no tomato, was more like cheesy pesto bread. The grilled fish was fine but... More

We took another couple here for a date night. The four of us each had something different and all four of us were thrilled with what we had and had to taste a bite of everyone else's as well. The Mungo salad is always amazing! The wait staff is quick with refills on everything, friendly, and knowledgable of menu items.... More
