Description: 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 booked only a couple of days before but as we wanted an early table we were in luck. My 13 year old is a 'fussy' eater but he had a taste of everything as it all tasted so good. The staff were attentive without being overpowering or hovering. My steak was cooked to perfection. In fact all the food... More

22 people sitting down for a meal is often a recipe for disappointment. But we are happy to say that the staff at the mona lisa made it look effortless. All from the A La Carte menu, all served on time and cooked to their usual high standards.

We phoned at short notice to book a table for 16 people after we were let down by a douglas restaurant, Mr o'sullivan said he could fit us in if we gave him half an hour. When we arrived he had moved tables around and had it set for all 16 of us.. Exceptional as the place was nearly full... More

It's always a good sign when you walk into an Italian restaurant at 5pm and it's full of locals holding a childrens birthday party - this place is popular and I can see why When the rest of the island is just shutting down this place is just waking up - it's a proper Italian The food is pretty good...

There is little to carp about with this restaurant. Located off the beaten track, it is clearly a valued place for the district it being very busy all night at the time of our visit. Despite being an obviously Italian restaurant, they did not stock, nor did the waiting staff recognize Aperol, one of Italy's most common aperitivos at least... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we really appreciate your comments. I have passed your comments on to our chef regarding his amazing lamb stew and he is most disappointed that his gnocchi was rubbery and apologises. He regrets that you did not mention it at the time as he would have happily made another one.... More
