We've talked about eating here for several years & today finally tried. I was excited by the cannoli sign out front. First off, the hostess was great & the restaurant was clean. They brought out crostini & marinara sauce. The sauce was on the sweet side & reminded us of Pizza Huts breadstick sauce. I ordered the chicken fettuccine Alfredo... More

This was the worst Italian restaurant I've ever been to. Their food seems prepackaged or frozen. Since I didn't see anything I liked on their menu, I asked for a simple angel hair pasta with olive oil and garlic. The waitress said that it was not on their menu and not available. Gasp! and they call this an Italian restaurant?... More

We got there about 4:45 and there was only one other couple in the place. Hostess told us to sit wherever we wished as she carried a tray of rolled silverware (I believe) to the back. She came right back with menus and took our drink order. It wasn't long at all tlll she was back with our drinks and... More

Service was friendly, prices moderate but have to tell you that this is one Italian restaurant that truly disappoints. Ordered a lunch special of spaghetti and Meatballs for around $5.95. and while waiting the server brought bread. Well it appeared to be like Melba toast with a side dish of red sauce. Ok guess from that part of Italy this... More

My absolutely favorite item at Monjuni's is their bread and sauce appetizer that is free! OMG I could eat it for the main course! It is buttered, toasted Italian bread and their signature sweet marina sauce for dipping!!! I love, love, love their house Italian salad!! It has an olive mix in it, and it is sooooo good!! I also...

1st time at the new location. My client wanted to give their lunch a try so we stopped by to check it out. He ordered the cannelloni and I had the calzone. They served us a sweet red sauce with toasted french bread when they brought our drinks. Which was tasty but not nearly as good as my italian step... More

The whole experience we had was awful. The food was so bad I couldn't even eat it, which is really saying something by the way. The service was terrible and it was highly over priced. I doubt we will ever go back.

It had been a while since I visited Monjuni's, so my wife and I dropped by one evening in late July. The old fashioned juke box was still in place near the front door and the colored lights still hung down from the ceiling. I had never tried the beef lasagna before so I decided to try it with an...

None of my party of 7 was impressed. The waitress was nice. The salad was great but it went down from there. The dipping sauce for the garlic bread is too sweet. The bread was too hard for the po-boys. The cannelloni was not good. The sauce was awful. The Milky Way Cake was good. Things have gone south since... More
