Very, very good food and service was excellent. My Manhattan was perfectly prepared and my husband’s wine was just right. Our entrees of the Mushroom Ravioli and Chicken Parmigiana were yummy, although the temperature of the food could have been hotter. Place was clean and...busy, all good signs. Would definitely recommend.More

The food is great and very favorable and the portions will feed you twice! The staff is great and friendly.

We called for a delivery order to our motel, the lady who took our order also delivered it. Fast delivery time (less than 30 minutes) and the food was hot and delicious. Ordered an antipasto salad, Baked Manicotti and a pizza. Couldn't be better.

We ordered pick up, and good thing because there were over a dozen people mingling and waiting in the parking lot. Unfortunately, they forgot some of our order and the salad dressing. However, the food we did get was delicious and we would order from...here again.More

We were seated promptly ordered an app and 2 entrees. We got our wine and appetizer in a reasonable amount of time. The problem was our entrees, the 3 tables seated after us all got their food service of entrees before we got ours. We...waited around 45 minutes before our entrees arrived. The waitress was embarrassed and gave us a free glass of wine because of the unacceptably long wait. Ok, something but comp-ing us for meals would have been the appropriate response. It looked liked the manager was redirecting cooks and food service staff to prioritize the local guests ahead of us non locals. You know, I get it, with COVID, probably the only clients they had were locals. But with things opening up, it will be a catch22 for this place. If you don't treat tourists the same as locals, tourists won't eat there. I don't recommend this place if you're a tourist. I hope this place and all other restaurants in Taos rebound to pre COVID service and profit levels. PS. One final piece of advice to owner, your responses to recent reviews were not customer friendly ... but I am not an expert in Taos etiquette, so if this is Taos appropriate, go for it!More

Thank you for your review. It is certainly not our practice to serve locals first. (Although I know a few folks who wish we would). Regarding other tables served before yours, typically the reason this happens is if the items ordered are faster to prepare...More

UnfortunateIy, I have to give 2 stars, the pizzas are very good, but I can't say the same about the staff and mgmt. I ordered 2 pizzas to be delivered, gave my CC number after I was told twice the amt was $36.99. When the...pizzas were delivered, the driver expected a cash payment, did not have my CC receipt and not even a copy of my order with the amt. Called the restaurant, the amt was confirmed and that it was paid. Few days later, the charge on my CC shows an additional $5. Called the restaurant, the mgr. explained they charge $5 for delivery for order under $25, and could not find a receipt for my order, OK mistake. After 1 week, the order was found, with apologies and I agreed for a $5 coupon to be mailed to me. After 4 weeks many ph. calls and excuses no sign of the coupon, nor my CC receipt. The mgr does not even have the courtesy to return my calls. Obviously this $5 won't break my bank, but I was not expecting that kind of customer service. Their pizzas are really good, but they're not the only one in town!More

I am a local of Taos and I used to eat at mondo quite often. However last night I went and ate there and the service just wasn’t that great. There was only one person doing phone orders and walking them out. I wasn’t happy...that the girl doing that repeatedly went to all the other cars before mine. I shared hot wings with a family member and we chose ranch and we both have been sick all day today. I was also disappointed that even though I asked for extra ranch in a big container the containers were all less than half full. I ordered a full order of pasta and it looked like it was just a half order maybe less. I was really disappointed with this last experience. I don’t think my family and I will continue to support this local business anymore. The food just isn’t how it used to be from this place. :(More

My girlfriend & I enjoyed a girls trip to Taos & we saw this restaurant & had to try it since we both love Italian. Sydney was our server & she did a fabulous job making sure we had a good dinner. We both loved...our food & were glad they offered half portions of the entrees we ordered. The mushroom ravioli was absolutely superb. The decor was quaint as well. We even got to meet one of the owners & hear their story. The only thing missing was hearing someone playing the baby grand, which my mother would have done if she were still alive. Please support this local restaurant. You won't regret it!More

Because of Covid restrictions I can't tell you much about 'regular' service but placing and receiving a pick up order was beyond simple and super fast. We started with one of their Greek salads which was enjoyable. There was a spice used on marinated vegetables...that I didn't find appealing but everyone else loved it so consensus was this was a good salad. Now the vegetarian pizza. . .WOW! Caramelized onion on a pizza? Genius! So many vegetables on a tasty crust with a delectable sauce I wish I lived closer to Mondo Italiano just for this pizza. Absolute perfection!More

We ordered pizza and salad delivered to our B&B. The salad was fine, nothing out of the ordinary, but the veggie pizza was covered in good veggies, especially a lot of broccoli, which we really liked. The large was more than enough to feed three...of us, even after a big hike. Next time I would specify no plasticware nor powdered cheese -- we didn't need them and I hate wasting stuff and I always wish places would ask before including them.More
