Located at the eateries by Robertson Quay, Mondo Mio offers hearty homecooked Italian food.
At a recent visit, I started with the Garlic Bread ($5) which was had a pleasant crispy and yet good balance of garlic spread.
I also tried the Calamari ($17), which was alright but nothing much to shout about.
From the pizza menu I had the Toscana ($22). I thought that it was quite well executed. The only thing is that one has to be prepared to wait as there is a limited space in its pizza oven.
From the pasta menu, I found the Spaghetti Vongole ($18) to be very high in salt.
A better main course would be the Ossobuco ($32), which had very tender pieces of meat on a bed of risotto. The meat had a very strong tomato base which overpowered any taste the saffron al dente aborio rice had.
I ended with the Lava Cake ($12), which was really well executed with nice deep chocolate oozing out of the cake as well as a balance vanilla ice cream.
Food overall was alright, but service was rather patchy. I was led to a wrong table at the start ( and ended up seating in a table reserved under a Mr. Cammaro) and some of the items arrived wrongly. Even my final bill was wrong twice. However, I have to give credit to the staff who were really apologetic and did what they could to rectify the situation.
