Mondo Italiano. Italian Restaurant Taos, New Mexico & The Espresso Bar at Mondo Italiano
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 Alex Giordano 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, Chef Giordano has it covered!

"My sweetheart and I have had our second dinner here and is was really delicious. the dinner salad had great olives in it and is really good , their ceasar is also good. We ordered a Porcini mushrooms ravioli and a sausage and green pepper pasta. it was excellent, as was the crusty warm bread. The espresso and cappuccino also good .The pizzas are the best we've tasted in Taos. The waiter was friendly and attentive and suggested a nice wine to compliment the meal. It is very reasonably priced and we highly recommend it."Louise L.
"My husband and I had dinner here last weekend and we both loved it. The fried zucchini was divine and a huge portion. He had the calzones, which tasted exactly like the ones my aunt makes back home in Brooklyn. The service was impeccable; our waitress was very attentive and made us feel very welcomed. It gets crowded, which is no surprise because the food is amazing. I grew up in Brooklyn eating homemade Italian food and this place brought back many memories of family dinners. Thank you Mondo Italiano!"Liz C.
