The food was not worth going back for. The restaurant network was down. We had no cash. Luckily we had a check book to pay for the bill.

I've heard from a number of people that the food was really good here. Been here a few times and it has been inconsistent. Sometimes very good and other times just ok. The service has been very good. The last time we were there with friends to discuss a vacation trip. We were seated next to the "live entertainment" with... More

Monetti's is a lovely little independent Italian restaurant in a strip mall in Lee's Summit. We've tried it a couple of times, but I'm always disappointed with the food. We are Italian and cook our own meatballs and sugo, so I admit I'm picky and not many places can surpass my own cooking preferences -- but tastes are different and... More

This first time we ate there the lasagna was amazing. When we went back they served us left over lasagna from the day before and heated it up and it was burned on the bottom. I told the waitress I wanted something else. She explained they just took out a new batch from the oven and would bring me some... More

We tried Monetti's for the first time on Mother's Day. We found out that typically they are closed on Sundays but were open for the special occassion. They accepted a reservation and thankfully for us we had one because when we arrived it was a mad house inside. The greeter was obviously overwhelmed and our reception was awkward. We were... More

I really abhor chains. I do what I can to support independents as much as possible. So, when I ended up in Lee's Summitt and wanted Italian, this seemed to fit the bill. As much as it hurts me to say this, you are much better off at the olive garden. My salmon was cooked until there was not a... More

This was a last minute decision to meet someone and the food ended up being terrific! Nice dinner music and white table cloths made the evening very nice. I can't remember the last time I had white table cloths for a personal dinner.

Monetti's gives you a taste of Italy in the KC area. The menu has terrific Italian dishes that remind one of Italy and the owner can be caught singing if he is not careful. Friday and Saturday nights are busy and the wait can be long; however, it is worth it.

I like this place. They have a great menu and when the owner is there the service is admittedly much better. I just prefer to dine at small local places instead of franchise microwave meals. They also sell Thor bread to go at a good price. The brick oven is neat and when the bread is bki g the smell... More

This is REAL Italian food! The owner is from Italy himself (or else his mother is, can't remember.) Anyway, the food is really good and they give you some yummy garlic butter knots as a free appetizer. The first few times I really enjoyed my experience, but the last couple times the service has not been quite as good. I... More
