Mondo’s Ristorante Italiano
Years ago, Angelo Aloisio emigrated to New York City from Abruzzi, Italy, and soon became an executive chef. Inspired by his father, Lou Aloisio opened the original Mondo’s Ristorante Italiano in 1969.
Much has changed since opening day, including the addition of Lou's sons Mike and Rob to his staff. But the Aloisio family recipes, the very ones that made the eatery such a local hit, remain a guiding force behind the menu. It delights taste buds with such dishes as housemade meatballs atop spaghetti and the Abruzzi by the Sea (shrimp, scallops, and mussels over linguini), which offers a taste of the Aloisio family's origins.
