Hours: Dinner (Mon.-Sat.)
If you’re looking for hearty fare in a cozy spot, look no further than the unassuming strip mall location of Mondo’s, a James Island Italian treasure that has been churning out Italian eats for more than two decades. Squeezed between a Sonic and a thrift store, Mondo’s makes the most of its space, including an outside bar and patio area. But let’s talk food. Mondo’s has sizeable portions and quality dishes, from the simple marsala pasta to the robust lasagna with pulled beef short rib. With a solid lineup of Italian-style apps like bruschetta and caprese, as well as a number of leafy greens, Mondo’s balances out its pasta-heavy menu. —Connelly Hardaway (Dish, Summer 2019)
