Big servings, too sweet sauce

Monjunis was an easy choice for lunch as one of our group hates seafood and vetoed anything "Louisiana" style. We were headed to a local brewery bar afterwards so location and price were our primary motivation. The service was friendly, decor was a bit kitchy, but the portions were large (we all... read more

Great homemade authentic Italian food, excellent service, and a dog-friendly covered outdoor patio. Very large portions. Fresh shrimp salad was terrific with enough left for another full meal.

We ate lunch at the original location on Louisiana Avenue and that is the way to go, as their lunch specials come with Italian salad and reduced size entrées. Food is always great and we are never disappointed. Lasagna and muffuletta sandwiches are our usual and did not disappoint us.

I tried Monjunis on Louisiana St while waiting for an appointment at the government office. It is a nicely decorated place and crowded but the lunch crowd were finishing up to leave. I opted to dine outdoors on the patio where seating was openly available. I waited a while for service to arrive and almost 5 - 10 minutes before... More

Visited this restaurant as a recommendation from a local and it turned out to be a great choice. Their sauce is definitely tasty provided that you don't mind a slightly sweet tomato sauce. The twice-baked lasagna was phenomenal!

My wife & I were driving thru and decided to get some Italian food. The spaghetti with sauce was great, the muffalatta (sp) was unbelievable. Service was ok. BUT the ICE machine in the dining room was very noisy and distracting even aggravating, and came close to running the meal

Leaving Medica Center just at lunchtime, we thought of Monjunis. Crowded, noisy and wonderful. People everywhere, good smelling foods and hot steaming meatballs in a great sauce with crisp toasts. Italian? I don't know nor care. It is alway a lovely little lunch in a delightful city full of surprises if you get out and find them.

The staff were very friendly, but that is where the good stuff ends. The food tasted like it had been cooked prior to our arrival. At an Italian restaurant, you do expect somewhat of a wait for lasagna and shrimp spaghetti - we barely waited 10 minutes for our food to arrive. To our dismay, the noodles in the spaghetti... More
