Mungo’s now is in the corner of the O’Fallon movie theater, not much shops around it, therefore, not a busy restaurant. They only open for dinner. I passed by the restaurant many times, then went to try their food once, loved it, and returned recently....More

This was not my favorite visit to the restaurant. The fish special was pretty fishy and a little dry. We were disappointed with the fish special. Pasta was good as usual.

Sorry about your fish special. We did not realize the amberjack was not up to our standard. We depend on our seafood house on only the freshest products. Please contact Tony at Mungo,s 632-6864

Enjoyed our pasta dishes and the Mungos house salad. I don't remember the name of the pasta and mixed seafood dish, but it was excellent. The waiter, Charles, was friendly and informative about the family history of Mungos. We wanted good Italian without driving into...More

Seated quickly and the waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Feels like a high-end Italian restaurant at a median price. The food was great. Always judge an Italian Restaurant by the salad, bread and alfredo sauce. All 3 were great.More

THANK YOU. Was taught 51 years ago at the finest high end restaurants in St Louis. Andrieno's on the Hill, now Dominic's, Al's Steakhouse on the waterfront, and Rich and Charlie's. Charlie Mugavero taught me how to cook our dishes when I was 16 years...More

Mungo's is a must for a great dinner in the Fairview Heights/O'Fallon/Shiloh area. It is miles above the nearby chains. The house salad and pastas (especially the lasagna and tortellini) are fabulous. Ditto for entrees like veal Marsala and chicken brochettes and the side dish...More

We could have slowed your service down if you had asked. Would have been quicker than writing this review to make us look bad.

If you go to urbanspoon there is a menu on their website. I did hear that their new website is a working progress and should be up and running soon. You could also ask them on Facebook if they could add a menu for everyone... More
