Moni Kaba was born in Macedonia in 1950. He was raised with his 3 brothers and 4 sisters. He moved to Italy with 2 brothers at the age of 15 to look for work and eventually come to the USA. While in Italy, he found work in an italian restaurant. From the first day in the restaurant he knew thats what he wanted to do. He moved to the US in 1974. He opened his first restaurant, a diner in Connecticut. He met his wife "Mama" in 1975 and got married. He moved to Texas in 1980 and opened 2 restaurants in Dallas. One called Amore in North Dallas and Benvenute. Amore was the caterer for Lorimar Picture Productions. He catered to The show Dallas. By 1986 Moni was in search of warmer wheater and decided to move his family to Florida. There, he opened another Amore restaurant in Saftey Harbor. On a visit to Texas in 1994, Moni wanted to be closer to his brothers and sisters so he and the family decided to move back to Texas. While driving thru North Arlington he realized that there were no italian restaurants around. The restaurant was an immediate hit. Long lines of hungry diners became a nightly occurrence on Randol Mill as word got out that something exciting- and tasty- was happening. The great food spoke for itself, but customers also marveled at the huge portions available at reasonable prices. Moni's is a family style restaurant offering exceptional value to its guests through the many dishes of Southern Italian cuisine.
