I had been planning to visit Monellis once they were open again after lockdown for some time having read the reviews. I cycled over last week & had a lovely lunch. Frankie & Francesca the owners are truly passionate about the quality of their food...& it really shows. The Sourdough Pizza base is light but has a lovely crisp outside that holds it together. I love Italian food & had a great conversation with Frankie about their cooking process. I bought a can of the 'Rosso Gargano' tomatoes they use (even got a wooden spoon to accompany it! What a nice touch) They are so delicious you could just eat them out of the can! I'm already looking forward to returning. Can't recommend them highly enough! Lovely genuine warm people & great food!More

A really lovely place. Good food. Great atmosphere, amazing service and chefs. Well worth the visit if you are ever in Hastings! A cut above the rest in this area for sure! Authentic, family run business. Do visit them!

We tried to go before but they close early on a Sunday, so we were very happy to be able to go on a Friday night! The food was great, tasted amazing. My only criticism is that they didn’t have a meat pizza available however...had all of the meats as extra toppings? It just seemed like a way to make customers pay more for their pizza… Covid wise it didn’t feel all that safe, I appreciate there are screens up between tables, however it was still very squashed and not well ventilated as there is only 1 door - possibly made worse by the screens.More

We are very sorry to hear that your experience wasn’t as you expect from Monellis even though you liked our food! Regarding the “meat pizza”, as Southern Italians we truly believe in traditional food culture, our long fermented sourdough artisan pizza combinations are based on...More

Authentic Italian experience, thoroughly enjoyed my pizza with cheese from Puglia, porcini mushrooms and parma ham. The staff is also very friendly and the restaurant has that Italian vibe that you only get when you are in Italy. Highly recommend!

Monellis is a must if visiting Hastings! The service was brilliant, and decor made us feel as if we were in Italy. Pizza was delicious made right in front of you! The friendly staff take time to chat & don’t rush you out. 5/5 from...a group of Irish girls!More

As soon as you step in it feels like to step in Italy! The pizza smell is just overwhelming and when you see the menu you would like to order everything from it! We went there for a light lunch, ending ordering focaccia barese, burrata...with capocollo, 2 salads and the cannoli siciliani! Everything was mouthwatering and I can't wait to try the pizza, but it will have to be for the next time! The owners Francesca and Frankie were lovely, friendly but very attentive!More

My wife and I decided to go to Hastings for our 30th anniversary. Whilst we walked through Hastings Old Town we came across a small Italian Sourdough Resturant called Monellis and decided to have a meal there. When we first arrived we where greeted by...beautiful lady, warm, vibrant and charming. She showed us to our table, nothing was to much trouble and she made us feel welcome and as customers appreciated. Over the next hour and a half we where made to feel like part of the family both she and her husband(Chef) tok time to talk to us but still maintained a brilliant level of service to the rest of their customers. The food was amazing and really good value. I feel this is the all round experience I have ever had at a restaurant and would heartily recommend it. Thank you Monellis for making the day a day to remember.More

Wow, just wow. This place is amazing. The food is too quality. The service impeccable. Such friendly staff and a top chef make for a truly memorable Italian experience. The best Italian food outside of Italy itself. Many thanks for an excellent meal. Will definitely...be back.More
