Stayed at Laxey a week and visited this place twice. Both times was very busy with a good atmosphere. There staff were friendly and courteous and very helpful . The quality of the food was excellent using fresh ingredients, particularly their locally caught fish and seafood. The lobster linguine was superb. Would recommend this to anyone visiting the Island.

We went to the Mona Lisa twice during our TT stay. The first one was rather disappointing, the pizza was spoiled by a base that was burnt in places and tasted of burnt pancake. The calzone was good but was spoiled by being swimming in bolognaise sauce. Staff were fine and concerned when we both left some. The starter, a... More

After coming to the Isle of Man for the TT for the first time this year, we were delighted to have found this fantastic Italian restaurant, but unfortunately it was on our last day. When we arrived the restaurant was heaving, with a distinctive TT atmosphere. Even though we hadn't made a reservation and there were four of us, we... More

I love Italian food, and this means I've usually gone out of my way to find good Italian restaurants all over the world. It's hard for many places to get anything close to being authentic, whether this is atmosphere, or the food; however you choose to describe what authentic is, it has to have a certain something, a feeling, an...

I love this place. Great little restaurant set in a lovely location in Laxey. Food is top notch. Best fillet steak anywhere on the Isle of Man. Pizzas and pasta is also superb as are their range of starters. Stunning deserts and all at a very reasonable price. Staff are super polite. Will be back over and over again. Awsome.

We go here when we want a family dining experience. The staff are very good and take into account you have children. The waiter was brilliant with my little ones and made an extra special effort for my son's 5th birthday.
