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.

Not open for lunch. Great disappointment

After reading all the other glowing reviews we were really looking forward to eating here, only to find that they don't open until 5.30pm. None of the other reviews mentioned this, which is a great pity

This restaurant is great for children and there is a wide variety of food on the menu. The restaurant was already busy when we arrived and although we had not booked we did manage to get a table, although for a large number booking would be a must. We had a pizza, stuffed chicken and seabass with a fishcake starter.... More

We ate here twice during a recent holiday and enjoyed both occasions very much. The staff are really welcoming, especially to children, making for an ideal atmosphere for a happy family meal. Our main courses included pizzas, pastas and steaks, all of which were delicious. Would definitely recommend this lovely restaurant.

My second trip to La Mona Lisa and now I know why it is one of the top rated restaurants on the island. First time was good but not exceptional, tonight was exceptional. We were a group of 8, 4 adults and 4 kids. Service was perfect, very playful with the kids but also attentive to the adults. We started... More

Fabulous family run Italian restaurant. Excellent food, wine and service. Steaks are delicious, as are the usual pasta dishes. However I did feel that it was a little overpriced. It is advisable to book to avoid disappointment.

The food and atmosphere is definitely above average but I had to mark it down because I felt it was a bit overpriced. Steaks were exceptional on our visit, best if you reserve a table because it gets quite busy most days.

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
