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

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.

Great place to dine before a show. We greatly enjoyed the food, the wine selection was reasonable, and the service was low key and professional. A very enjoyable evening.

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.

I am SO HAPPY my wife and I found this gem in Dallas. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was relaxing, and our server was on spot. For me, the freshness of the food and the flavor of the sauces is what makes an Italian restaurant good. Well, these guys hit the target. If I closed my eyes, I would have sworn I was in Italy.
I WILL be back. Hopefully often when I'm in Dallas.

I used to love Momo;s and haven't been for years. We went yesterday and were very disappointed. The food was so-so, the restaurant had a stale smell and the service was slow. Unfortunately, we will not be going back.

Amazing! I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and wanted to surprise her with balloons and a bouquet of flowers on the table. I brought those by earlier in the day and they were set up perfectly for our arrival. As for the food, this hidden gem in the heart of Uptown Dallas is about as good as it gets. Everything is handmade and cooked to perfection. Just an awesome experience!

Everything was great. The food was amazing. I had the chicken carfrfio and it was so good. We had 4 bottles of reasonably priced wine around $40 a bottle and they were some of the best wines I have ever had. Staff was so great.

The food is consistently very good and the service is always very attentive . Prices are good for the quality for the food. Our favorites are the calamari and the
“Pink Bread” to start as shared dishes. The Cheese tortellini was excellent , as was the seafood tortellini , and we had an excellent Merlot
The tiramisu here is outstanding.

There was a table of 20 people near us, so the noise level was very high. Our food was very good - salads and pasta. Wine was good, too. The entrance is a bit hard to find.

I’ve been a fan of Momo’s for almost 30 years & this visit was a good reminder of why I’m such a fan. The service is fantastic & the food is my favorite Italian anywhere in the Metroplex. I love their salmon, shrimp & pasta dishes, but have never had anything that wasn’t delicious! I highly recommend Mono’s for great service, a welcoming atmosphere & amazing food!
