“Attention to Detail!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Don't let the outside fool you. This is a gem in the heart of Streetsville. The food is fantastic and the service is amazing. We could not decide on a wine and were offered tastes of several before settli

“Great Italian food in Mississauga”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Nice restaurant.
I have been here 3 times so far.
I enjoy the food and atmosphere.
The appetizer sampler let's you try a variety of starters.
Everything I've had so far is great.

“Food was good but that's where the "good" experience ended.”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We were recommended by a friend and while we were pleased with the food, the service which is important to most I would imagine was poor to average. The Saturday night started out fine, the server was pleasant but as the restaurant filled it was clear she was in over her head. Two hostesses mulled around the tables smiling politely but added nothing to the experience , not stopping by once to check to see how everything was. It got worse when about 1/2 way thru the night a group of 4 people came in, obviously friends of the owner as our waitress spent the rest of the evening doting on them. The chef came to our table to ask us how the food was but was looking away as we responded, why ask? I like to think most of us vote with our $, too many choices out there to spend another one of them at Mondello's. Never going back.

“Fantastic service”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and is very nicely decorated, great for date night! I enjoyed the food but there were mixed reviews from my fellow diners. Highlights: the arrincini and the mushroom risotto. The mushroom salad and creme brulee were also very good. Service was absolutely top notch! Its probably the best service I've experienced at any restaurant.

If you enjoy spicy food ask for the fresh red peppers on the side.

“Good place for Mississauga, but could be even better”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Tried it as we're always looking/hoping that someone will open a truly special restaurant in Mississauga and the reviews are obviously very good. Overall, was a good place for a nice meal, but not a special experience.

Food ranged from very good (appetizer platters) to OK (risotto was bland, meatballs too). Atmosphere is ver nice although a little noisy - needs some more sound dampening. Service was well-intentioned, but needs a little polish. Funny thing was the food came out very quick, which might sound good but a lot of the food seemed like it would have benefitted from longer cooking: meatballs were lukewarm and the cheese hadn't melted, risotto was clearly prepared ahead, carbonara sauce was a little watery. Most of it was very tasty, but just one step below "very good".

Holding out hope they'll refine a little to become a "great place".
