Italian
Like a friendly neighborhood trattoria you might find in Naples or Venice, MoMo’s serves fare passed down through generations. The atmosphere is friendly and intimate, with exposed brick walls and sunny patio. The patio invites people watching along Knox Avenue at the uptown location. MoMo’s continues to set the standard for Italian dining in Dallas.




Directions: Best secret restaurant in Quadrangle . We are located at Lacelede & Routh next to Theatre 3

This is our neighborhood "go to" restaurant. The food and service are consistently great! They make us feel welcome and familiar. The staff is accommodating to all our needs/wants. Try it! You won't be disappointed.

This is a great place tucked in a shopping center at Preston and Forest. The good is really good and service was wonderful. They are definitely taking Covid precautions too.

What a wonderful treat and a delightful find. Here is an Italian restaurant that realizes Italian restaurants are supposed to make their own pasta. to a fan of Italian cooking that sets the tone correctly. I had pasta and seafood dish that was wonderful. This is the best Italian restaurant I found in all of DFW and I've been looking hard. I'll be going back there within 2 weeks. The food was wonderfully delicious.

It had a great setting, and the service was prompt. The food, though good, was not as excellent as we had anticipated.

We were celebrating great news, and the team at Momo's really went above and beyond. The food is so good. We have eaten there a number of times, and the food has been outstanding each time.

The service is exemplary. We always ask for Carlos, but everyone helps each other out.

Our meal was outstanding. I had the Rotolo Verde and my wife had the Trenette col Pesto, both of which were very, very good. The Insalata alla MoMo was excellent as well. This is our new favorite spot in the neighborhood.

For a place named Momo’s PASTA it sure didn’t have good pasta. The Pizza was outstanding but no one enjoyed the pasta. I am not sure if the relocation that they are about to go through is the contributing factor but wasn’t impressed. Would try again once they move though!

Our first time to eat here. It was a Saturday evening about 5 pm. They were not very busy and it was their last day at this location. The food was delicious. Everything about the service was professional. We will be going again at their new location.

The place was hard to find but they are moving to another location.
Service was great - waiter was attentive and very nice/ friendly
Food- there was 4 of us - only one like their food a lot- mine was blan - had the Alfredo spinach ravioli- pasta texture was good - but spinach stuffing had no flavor- so just plain spinach which didn’t help the already blan sauce- when I asked everyone- the 2 others said it was ok / so so-

I used to frequent Momo's when they were on Knox long ago, and it was consistently good. My friend convinced me to dine at Momo's one last time before they move (even though dining at the Quadrangle location never lived up to their past performance). We both ordered Rotolo Verde (used to be a favorite) and were both disappointed. The marinara was bland, the pasta was overly chewy, and the spinach filling was ho hum. I ordered the Insalata Verde since it was also a past favorite, but the toppings were very sparse: 3 bits of walnut, 3 half slices of radish and barely any tomatoes. I have never counted the ingredients in a salad, but was surprised they had been so stingy. My friend ordered a green salad on their specials menu that featured roasted beets and a grapefruit vinaigrette, which she said was pretty tasteless. We both wish we hadn't gone, and certainly won't be trying their new location.

Waited almost 30 min to get acknowledged by server after having to walk to front and ask for someone to the table. Waited another 15 min to get appetizer and drinks after the appetizer was brought to us. Waiter was brief and in a hurry. Overall, food was good, everything else was terrible.

It was XMas Day so one has to take that into consideration.....it was very chaotic as expected, not many other restaurants open and the Number of people were overwhelming. Need to re-try under normal circumstances.

We arrived for our 5:45pm reservations and didn’t get our food for over two and a half hours. The food was terrible. Our waiter was very kind but I don’t think this was his fault. Management made a poor decision to be open Christmas Day with a skeleton crew and a chef that didn’t know the recipes. Not exactly a good experience for our Christmas Day meal.

While the food isn't bad, it isn't terrific either. Even with a reservation, our table for four was in the very back, behind a wall, near an ugly fish tank, under a TV, and with really poor lighting, almost in the shadows. When I mentioned my displeasure to the person seating us he said something like, We're very busy. It's Christmas time. Mind you, this was a week and a half before Christmas and with a reservation. To his credit, moments after we sat down, he came back and took us out front and offered us either of two locations we'd passed on the way to the original one. Our "new" tables, side-by-side two tops, were at least better located, but they rocked anytime they were touched. The service was efficient, if rushed. Many tables that vacated while we were there remained full of dirty dishes when we left. The place sorely needs a face lift, new tables, and much better lighting. Again, the food wasn't bad, but for the price, we expected an ambiance that better matched other places with similar prices. We won't likely return anytime soon.

We had another excellent dinner at MOMO. We always start with the “;pink bread” and calamari
Two of us had the tagliatelle Pescatore which was excellent , One had the risotto with lobster and another had the fettuccine Alfredo. We had a nice bottle of wine. .

The mood of the restaurant makes no sense. Abstract paintings paired with no music playing. Some fluorescent, some cool lighting confused the ambiance. There was only one waiter therefore the service was slow. The focaccia tasted store bought and the food was so expensive with horrible quality. The peas, mixed vegetables, and chicken were obviously frozen and just heated up. I will never go to this restaurant again because there is no plus side. Simply put, Momo’s pasta has a confused ambience, slow service, expensive food, low quality food, and nothing going for it.

First it is super hard to find so give yourself time.
Service was good. Food was average. Was expecting better based on the rating. The biggest downside are the portions. A $20 bowl of pasta has you wanting more bread and water to fill up.
Probably will not return.

The food was good, not great. The bruschetta was average, the salad was decent, and the chicken special I ordered was quite good. Our server was very attentive, and we got in and out quickly. If you are in a hurry, this would be a great place to go.
