Monello is the thoughtful expression of classic coastal Italian fare. The restaurant celebrates the cuisine of the Campania region, one that weaves the charm of rustic simplicity with the inherent elegance of fresh ingredients. An extensive wine list and exceptional cocktail program—complete with a house made limoncello— complements a menu that pushes boundaries even as it seeks to preserve tradition. A warm, inviting dining room showcases the graceful style of the region while the approachable staff will work to anticipate your every need.
Monello is right for any occasion—or no occasion at all.
