Mondo Mio, a restaurant situated in Robertson Quay, establishes traditional Italian setting by having wine shelves and also the modern setting like a cafe. The atmosphere was very cheerful and the theme was blue and orange which contrasted well. It showcased a lot of energy in the theme. The atmosphere of the restaurant was slightly noisy though.
Mondo Mio features many perennial favourites, like pasta and pizza. But, it features a whole collection of gnocchi, which is pasta made from potatoes. It has a lot of vegetarian dishes and you also can receive a small set of herb bread and some olive antipasti, as well as some dip. The herb bread carries out a lot of crispiness and is very flavourful with the amount of herbs and butter.

4. Eggplant Parmegiano
I found this dish really nasty because I really hate eggplant. This is really funny because when I said that, my dad launched into a story about his spiritual master who also hated eggplant and whenever someone served it, he would say in Hindi, "Is this food?". (Haha, :-D) But I found the sauce really great, even though the cheese is very salty, like British cuisine cheese. I thought this dish would have been done better in bell peppers served with bread.
Bill: The bill came to $120 roughly, along with our four drinks (incl. 1 beer). I thought that after that amount of service, someone should expect that much. But I believe that the price could be lowered down.
Why: I found that in this restaurant, the pizza was fantastic and so was the risotto. And the gnocchi is also worthy of complimenting because both sweet and savoury flavours worked well together. But the eggplant was disappointing. However, I think I'm going to come back to this place, no matter what, and maybe try a pasta.
