In the Middle Ages, the village was known as Pauli, and was part of the Giudicato of Cagliari. Later owned by the Republic of Pisa, the House of Aragon and the Giudicato of Arborea, it was depopulated by plague in 1348. Later it was a Spanish and then Savoyard fief.
Monserrato was an autonomous commune until 1928, when it was annexed to Cagliari. It remained a district of the latter until 1991, when it was separated with a local referendum. Since 1995  the town has been part of the newly instituted Cagliari metropolitan area.
