La Mona Lisa is a small, friendly, family run restaurant which has been bringing a slice of ‘La Dolce Vita’ to Laxey since 1994.With a picturesque riverside setting near to Laxey Harbour, La Mona Lisa is the ideal place to unwind and meet up with friends or family. The atmosphere is vibrant and bustling with a warm welcome extended to both regulars and new customers alike.They say that the best things come in small packages, and La Mona Lisa is no exception. We are passionate about Pizza, Pasta and Puddings although there is also a wide variety of poultry, meat and fish dishes and vegetarian options available.

Have been here a few times but always early evening when there is a superb value set menu. The usual Italian dishes, such as tomato soup or lasagne, are as good as anywhere but their specials are well worth trying. Service is friendly and efficient and atmosphere and location really good

Great Italian restaurant in beautiful Laxey. Warm and welcoming with good food and great staff. Bernie, the Maitre D could not do enough for us. Squeezing in a couple of additional places for our party of eight at very short notice. Food is good - I had the Spaghetti Carbonara - rich and creamy - first class. And their Calzone,... More

We stopped here during our round the island walk because it was the closest to where we were staying. From the outside it doesn't look very inviting but once inside everything is very different. we were there quite early in the evening and there were a number of families with small children clearly being well catered for. All the staff... More

looks nothing much from the outside, but inside very spacious and great atmosphere. First visit: we walked in at around 6.30 pm to a real hubbub (in a nice way). Wanting a table for two it was either yes, but we'd need to vacate by 7.30, otherwise next available was 9.30pm. We said we could be done by 7.30, so... More

Been to the Mona Lisa several times over the last few years and I consider it a rare gem, in that the food is always excellent and the staff are friendly and professional. In my experience this is pretty rare, particularly on the Isle of Man. Our most recent visit was during TT 2015, the busiest time of the year... More

We booked this restaurant several days in advance for a meal with friends over for the TT. When we arrived at the arranged time, we were told that our table had been given to another party who had arrived (presumably without a booking?). No apologies were offered and we were not invited to have a drink at the bar. Instead... More

I'm sorry you were unhappy with your visit to our restaurant, as you can see from our other reviews this is not normal. Firstly let me clarify that your table was not given to someone without a booking - during TT (as a local I'm sure you can appreciate) we experience many tables arriving late for their bookings due to...

I really enjoyed my meal at La Mona Lisa but didn't feel it should have been listed as a top-5 restaurant on the Isle of Man. It was good and reasonably priced, but the food was not life changing. Started with very good garlic bread, which was served like a pizza crust with an excellent almost spicy tomato based dipping... More
