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.

We met at the Mona Lisa, the staff were welcoming and friendly, the menu was suited our party perfectly. Good news for one member of the family is that they did Gluten Free pizza. All the food was enjoyed by everyone. We wouldn't hesitate to to return what ever the occasion.

Excellent food. A delicious Tomato and basil soup that puts every other tomato soup I've ever had to shame. Excellent service and comfortable dining atmosphere.

Went here for a family dinner and we all (teens and grown ups) found something delicious. I would recommend this place to anyone. And if you've got room, have the tiramisu 😋

We managed to get a last minute table on a busy Thursday evening, after just getting off the boat! The staff were amazing, helpful, friendly and fun! Food was fab! Especially the Chicken wrapped in Parma ham with mozzarella, the chicken calzone, and the seafood pasta! But the award winner was the tiramisu, which my friend (who loves tiramisu) declared... More

Thank you for your lovely review, we really do appreciate you taking the time. I have passed you great comments on to the team and they are very appreciative. Sadly the age of the building means that installing air conditioning is problematic and expensive but thankfully the restaurant only gets too hot on those rare nights when there is no... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review.

Even though we now live in Ramsey, we still regularly take the bus to Laxey so we can enjoy La Mona Lisa! We are always welcomed and the fabulous friendly staff always deliver.

Good little family restaurant, food is good, service is good, atmosphere is good. Nothing special. Nothing to make me rush back in a hurry. Also got guilt tripped into leaving a tip as the guy was staring at me and I was too typically British to push the little no button on the machine, more my fault than anyone else's... More
