“Delicious Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

What a great find behind the Walgreen's on Folly Rd. We got tired of all the fried seafood at Folly Beach and were very happy to find this great neighborhood place. I had the best eggplant Parm ever, and my husband had pasta marinera with sausage. The service was friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere relaxing. They even have a small patio and outdoor bar behind a privacy fence for dining.

“Funky Little Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

You have to know someone in Charleston to find out about this little gem of a restaurant! Tucked into a corner of a strip mall, is Mondo's Delight, mostly a pasta spot, but I had the best local Stripped Bass - two night's in a row! My travel partner and friend had salads which were fantastic! It's busy with an open kitchen in the back, fun to sit at the bar and watch them cook or sit out side and enjoy the warm Charleston evenings !

“Never had a bad meal there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We met some friends early last night, and looked forward to a pleasant evening. Our server David was very pleasant, and correctly judged us to be laid back. He joked with us while freely giving his opinion on the wines. The food was as good as it always is, and we had a leisurely and relaxing evening. It is not expensive, and we have never been disappointed.

“Believe these reviews--superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Eat here on James Island because we were staying nearby at the James Island County Park Campground only minutes away. Based on the reviews here, we tried it. Food was incredible. Both entrees, one sausage rigatoni and one incredibly delicate salmon, were to die for. At first I thought the salmon was a bit pricey at $22 but the dish was a chef special and very creative. Restaurant is in a strip shopping center with a simple decor, but we would go back anytime. Even the salad was creative. Loved it

“Always great.....nice owners and employees too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This place is a James island staple and kind of a local hidden gem. You would never expect food this good in a strip mall kinda space. The owners..I think Chris and Lisa are their names, are really friendly and even have us a free dessert after we talked to them for a spell. Also, they just built a cool tiny little bar on the front patio . Big thumbs up!
