We rang for two weeks before coming to melbourne to make reservations. No one returned any of my calls. Went there on the day and was told they were closed for renovations as the staff or family are all out side drinking and smoking. Weird and rude. Lygon street is full if lovely other restaurants

It was a breath of fresh air to find this hidden gem last night. We chose to take the venture out to lygon st for our 10th wedding anniversary. After being hassled and pushed it was nice to find what looked like a family style restaurant with a beautiful setting. We were served a fantastic meal....the homemade ravioli was delightful... More

Friendly, warm and enchanting service. Scrumptious food with a touch elegance that brings peace and tranquility to one's soul. Thank Mandy and Charles for a wonderful evening.

The menu is extensive, as is the wine list, and the staff were attentive & friendly. We ordered garlic bread & bruschetta for starters and both were soggy and disappointing. The pasta - I ordered a carbonara and... More

There is such choice on Lygon Street but was so glad I chose this place for dinner while on business. The staff and owner were really friendly and service absolutely fantastic. The Gnocchi Gorgonzola was perfection, as was the glass of red wine that was recommended after dinner. Can't wait to return!

We dined at the Mona Lisa on a recent trip to Melbourne with friends from Adelaide and randomly selected this restaurant on Lygon Street. Best decision ever!! Food, service and atmosphere all absolutely A1. The owners/chef took the time to introduce themselves to us during the evening and we will definitely be dining there again on our next trip to...
