Jennifer DeBow, Mondo Italiano partner, knew exactly what she wanted to do when she conceived of the restaurant — she longed to capture the flavor of the East Coast Italian American food that she had enjoyed during her childhood in Manhattan.
"I put together the menu based on the dishes I used to eat in New York City," she said. "Each item has been taken from a specific restaurant."
Creating amazing pizza pies and pastas, Chef Jennifer DeBow gets down to basics with the simplest and best known of all Italian dishes: pizza. One bite of the crispy homemade crust with a perfect layer of freshly made sauce and fresh toppings of your choice will being you to the heart of Mulberry Street. Whatever you're hungry for, Mondo Italiano has it covered!
All pies are hand rolled and made fresh to order. Try the Calamari, Calabro Mozzarella Sticks or Taos Firehouse Wings while you wait for your pizza to arrive hot from Mondo's brick oven.
Make sure to check out all of the delicious dishes like Shrimp Scampi: sautéed in butter, white wine and garlic or our Meatball Hero served with house cut fries. Or try the Fettuccine Alfredo, prepared to order with cream, Parmesan cheese and fresh egg yolk.
Or the classic Eggplant Parmesan, whole eggplant sliced for your order, dipped in house made breadcrumbs, lightly fried and baked between layers of cheese and served bubbling hot.

This is a good Traditional Italian restaurant if want pasta or pizza. The Marinara is very good and the pasta is very good as well. I believe it is made in house. The pizza is good but the special pizzas are over-priced. They have a nice wine selection but the better wines are over priced by the glass. I wish they would learn how to make cheesy garlic bread. Theirs is mushy as if they microwaved it. The service was good. The gelato bar has really old gelato so avoid it.
Great food! Great prices! Live piano music. The service was a little slow though. My husband and I must have waited a long time for our food. Because the waitress said she tried to get our meal comped, but her manager was being difficult. So she got me some free gelato. I ordered the chicken parmigiana, and my hubby ordered the spaghetti. Both were so delicious! They also have delicious fresh bread! Next time I go I will order a pizza, they looked and smelled amazing!
