Fodor's Review

On a narrow cobblestone street just a few yards from the town's gate, this tavern is perhaps the best place to eat in town, with a truffle-centric menu and a breezy terrace perfect for alfresco dining. The pleasant rustic interior has roughly plastered stone walls. The menu screams truffles—almost every dish features them: homemade pasta, steaks, and even panna cotta come with shaved black truffles atop. Regulars also rave about their olive and truffle tapenade amuse-bouche. Being featured in the New York Times raised Mondo's profile among visitors to Motovun, but locals loved it even before.
