On my many visits to the Isle of Man, I have often visited the Mona Lisa restaurant in Laxey. Did so again in July with some Laxey friends that we have made over the years. Fantastic pizzas and great atmosphere. Will be visiting again I hope next year too .

On the night we went the restaurant was bustling with plenty of atmosphere. The food was good and so was the service. The choice of food is as you would expect in an Italian restaurant, namely pasta, pizza, chicken variations, risotto etc. We were staying in Douglas and took the electric railway summer Wednesday evening service, so no drink driving...

After a beautiful day in sun we went to this restaurant. We hadn't booked but were lucky enough to get a table as it had just opened at 5.30pm but soon filled up with families and couples. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was great. I had a pizza, my husband had a steak and daughter... More

Tried the Mona Lisa for an evening meal whilst in Laxey. Its only a short walk from the campsite. Very impressed. Friendly staff and good choice on the menu. There is an early bird offer of 2 courses for a very reasonable £13. Would recommend.
