Great restaurant. Food, service, presentation and value. Be wary of other opinions, give it a try, it's worth it.
Thank you so much for your positive feedback! Awesome that you gave us a try and found your experience worth it :) Looking forward to having you back!
We came for a birthday and have been wanting to try this restaurant for awhile now. Most of us were really disappointed with our meals. We shared the Mondello platter and the Arancini was cold inside, no sauce for the calamari, nothing was very hot on the plate that was meant to be hot. When ordering the meals they were out of items (we had an early reservation so no excuse for this), everyone in the group complained of a lack of seasoning in their meals. The butternut squash gnocchi didn’t taste like butternut squash at all. Overall, we were very disappointed with the experience.
Wonderful food and great service. The specials were unique and tasty, and the core menu continued to be fantastic. Would go back again and again.
Thank you so much for your amazing review! We're looking forward to welcoming you back often. Chef Nico is always keeping things fresh with creative features and, just as you mentioned, our main menu keeps our guests coming back for more! See you soon :)
I come here whenever I’m in the area specially for the bruschetta and free range chicken dish. I was disappointed soon arrival to learn they had done away with the chicken dish. The chicken parmigiana they now have instead wasn’t anything special unfortunately.
Great food and service. A gem of a restaurant that we'll certainly be back to.
Thank you for your amazing review, Dean! We appreciate your feedback and we can't wait to have you back :)
Idid not like it. I went based on trip advisor review and I don't think it was correctly reviewed.
Not outstanding dishes, not outstanding service, very noisy, not cozy at all. I didn't like it.
Best part of our visit was our server/host. Super polite, helpful, always smiling. He took our experience to the next level.
In my opinion, the food was only okay - it was fresh and cooked well but definitely lacking much flavour. If you don't mind bland taste, it'll be fine. My mum got the veggie pizza and is still talking about how great it was (she appreciated that the veggies were grilled first). Pasta is made fresh, pizza dough was soft and good.
Amazing food and great environment. Service could have been a touch more attentive, but overall, a great experience.
I’m still thinking about the salmon dish I ate. It was delicious! We all had different entrees and everyone enjoyed what they had ordered. The service was excellent - Seth as our host and other helpful hands. It was our first visit and we will definitely be returning.
Thank you very much, Maria! So pleased that you all enjoyed your first dining experience with us. We will pass along your kind compliments to our team. Plenty more delicious entrees await you here at Mondello :) Looking forward to your next visit!

Very Noisy - has difficulty hearing one another (we were a party of 4)
Food was good but a bit pricy for it
Terrific food. Wonderful service. Loved the personal attention and recommations.

Great place. Great people lovely food. Service terrific. Host was lovely to us
Thank you so much for you wonderful review, Howard! It was a pleasure to host you in the dining room, we hope to have you back in again soon :)
Was quite disappointed in the service and the restaurant was very loud. I made a reservation and prior to the reservation I received a message, asking me to confirm my reservation. I get it that people who reserve may not show up, but this was an added task that I didn't really want to do. Not sure I will ever reserve and go to this restaurant again.
Six of us had a small reunion. Great food, service and ambience. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Hi Stephen! Thank you so much for the excellent review and for taking time to share about your experience with us. Hope to see you again soon :)
We went for the first time for my birthday celebration, even though we’ve been living in Streetsville for 15 year. The food is amazing like everyone said, the atmosphere is warm and the servers always go above and beyond to make sure we are happy and satisfied. Definitely will visit again!
Thank you so much for the awesome feedback! We're so pleased you had a memorable birthday celebration here at Mondello. Looking forward to your next visit :)
I drive past this restaurant every week to take my son to hockey and I’ve always wanted to try. It was our anniversary, so why not?
This restaurant is TINY so, reservations are recommended. Being a small restaurant, the noise level can get loud as patrons talk and laugh. A group of business men beside us proved that. Every... single... word... gentlemen. The screaming child at the other end of the restaurant was unexpected and a bit annoying. This restaurant is not suitable for young children.
Anyway, our server Jack was friendly and attentive. Since we were first time customers he took the time to explain the menu and told us their daily features. He brought over a small plate of sliced bread and poured some balsamic vinegar and olive oil onto our bread plate. We started with sharing a plate of their fried calamari and a bowl of their mussels in wine sauce. Both were typical and well executed. Mussels were delicious but the calamari had bit of an oily taste, otherwise very good.
For the main, I opted for the butternut squash gnocchi with apples, mushrooms and walnuts in a cream sauce. My partner in crime chose pescatore fettuccine that featured seafood in tomato sauce. OMG! I should have order that! It looked delicious and since my husband wouldn’t share, I’d say it was! Large chunks of king crab, scallop, jumbo shrimp and mussels. A side bowl provided to throw the shells in so you can get to the bottom of the dish. The gnocchi was also good, however I don’t think I’ll order it again. Flavour came mostly from the sauce and mushrooms. As gnocchis are, they are filling and have a very mild flavour. Couldn’t taste the squash, but don’t get me wrong, the dish was delicious.
We finished with a cappuccino and shared Jack’s recommended tiramisu. Deliciously creamy! Jack then surprised us with a tartufo with a candle for our anniversary! Wonderful gesture they made note of when I made our reservation thru Open Table. We will be back so I try the pescatore!
Always have a wonderful dinner here. Would recommend to any couple looking for a nice evening.
Great ambiance, food and staff. They prepared their best table with candle lighting and were very attentive throughout the dinner.
We had a great wedding aniversary dinner. 😊
Our waiter, Jack, was very knowledgeable about the chef and the menu. It was good to know that the staff sample most, if not all, the menu items and have background about how the dishes are prepared.
The arancini was very tasty and probably the best we've had. The rice is based on their mushroom risotto and you can taste the creaminess of the filling. The calamari was not overcooked and just lightly panko crusted with a slight spiciness. Good wine selection with obvious Old World bias but that's fine considering the restaurant. The duck confit fettuccine was very good (a lot of cream so beware :-), the veal parmigiana was equally good (plenty of veal), but the star of our selections was the braised beef ravioli: very tasty and just an nice olive oil / balsamic vinegar addition so the ravioli was not overpowered by something else.
If your wife says "I'll just have a bite of your dessert", don't believe her. The tiramisu is not to be shared: tell her to get her own. It is light with the nice espresso flavour.
There is no doubt that this is place we will come back to again and again.
The food was wonderful, service was top notch, the other diners were very boisterous and loud, we could barely hear ourselves but that's no fault on the restaurant's part.
