“Reliable food, noisy bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I'm half and half on Monza. The food was pretty good, the service was decent, but the noise level was very high. It's a mash-up of gourmet pizza joint, casual Italian, family restaurant meets sports bar. Not sure they've got their mix right, but they're close. Wouldn't be my first choice for a weekend outing, but the outdoor seating seems like fun in the summer.

“Monza has more space now!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We frequent Monza 2 or 3 times a month. It is usually pretty crowded on the weekends and often wondered why they didn't take some of the space from Carmello's to which it is adjoined. They did! Now there is easily triple the tables. A nice section more for eating and still has the bar area. So glad they added space. The outside tables are great in nice weather. I agree with another reviewer, a few more menu selections could be welcomed. But the food is consistently above average and good happy hour specials on Friday evenings.

“Great Manassas hang-out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Lots of craft beers...specialty pizzas are great. Defintely try the seafood pizza - calamari, scallops and shrimp in a rose cream sauce - heavenly. Staff very knowlegable regarding their beers, and will bring you a sample. The Devil's Backbone Vienna Lager is a winner. It's so good I went twice in the same week.

“Monza's - Convenient place in downtown Manassas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

My husband and I went to lunch here several times and have never been disappointed. Food was good and service was excellent. I would like to see some more additions to the menu as it is very limited. It would be perfect if you could order from Carmella's menu (even if it is lunch time)

“Better restaurant options in Old Town Manassas”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Had an almost identical experience as "Chuck S" (previous reviewer) when I dropped in with my daughter and wife on a slow Sunday afternoon. We LOVE Carmello's, which is adjoined and affiliated with Monza, so we decided to try it out. Walked in to a BLARING TV with the Daytona 500 race on it....not necessarily what I was looking for in the way of ambience when we were the only ones in the place. Food order was brought out incorrectly....which resulted in the awkward "you go ahead and eat so your food doesn't get cold" scenario while we waited on the correct order to be prepared. Service was pleasant, but just not up to par. I'm usually a very forgiving and understanding client....but I won't be going back again. There are just way too many good options to pick from in Old Town Manassas.
