My Hometown with Jonathan: Mo's Italian Cafe & Deli
Jay Marks Real Estate South Partner, Jonathan Douglass, with Mo's Italian Cafe & Deli Owner Alisama Salgado
I've been eating at Mo's for years, so when I heard that it was under new ownership, I knew I needed to stop in and welcome the new owners to Midlothian.
Mario and Alisama Salgado took ownership of Mo's Italian Cafe & Deli in April and have already done a fantastic job putting their own twist on things.
Chef Mario has created some wonderful dishes like their Homemade Gnocchi with a gorgonzola sauce, prosciutto, chickpeas and toasted almonds; their Salmon Pomodora made with fresh Alaskan wild salmon sourced from a local Waxahachie fisherman; and their Greek Salad.
When it comes to dessert, we're all about their Chocolate Mousse made with layers of cheesecake, chocolate mousse and chocolate cake.
Within the next few weeks, you'll also be able to enjoy some of Mario's incredible pizza creations thanks to the addition of a wood-burning pizza oven to their kitchen. We cannot wait to see what Mario comes up with to add to the menu!
And in the next couple of months, Mario and Alisama will be remodeling to add some of their own personal style to the restaurant, and are also adding a patio that customers will hopefully be able to enjoy as soon as this Fall.
This family-owned restaurant has all kinds of charm. When you visit, you'll likely see Mario, Alisama and their children around the restaurant greeting and serving customers. Which is what we believe makes this place so special.
*Mo's Italian Cafe & Deli is located at 128 N 8th St, Midlothian, Texas 76065.
