I have been to been to the Mona Lisa Restaurant many times to stop in for a delicious meal or to attend a wedding or private event there. Each time I have gone I have enjoyed both the food tremedously and the friendliness of the staff. Anything with seafood here is awesome and give Sam's chicken a try which is... More

Mona Lisa is a hidden gem. The service is wonderful and staff members are friendly. They serve delicious hot from the oven rolls and the BEST homemade minestrone soup. We usually like the Bolognese but the recipe has changed as of late. Cavatelli, chicken parm and linguini with red clam are all excellet!

First off this was our first time here and I was not disappointed. I got the lamb chops which were incredible and filling. There is no problem here with portion size. I also got the veal and barley soup which was excellent as well. The Fresh lemonade was also incredible. The special I got for dessert was a tropical fruit... More

What a difference a year makes. I booked our bowling banquet dinner at Mona Lisa as we had been very happy the previous year but we were very disappointed this year and will not return. The menu I was given specifically says appetizers served family style as they were last year. Plates of stuffed mushrooms, calamari and bruschetta were passed... More

This is the first time we have had any negative comments about any of our parties. We’re usually complemented very highly. Let’s talk about what went wrong. Let’s start off with the appetizers.

Fancy or casual. Whatever you are in the mood for, Mona Lisa is just what you are looking for. Great food, great variety. Try the onion soup, stuffed mushrooms or other appetizer. Hanger steak is a favorite. Chicken dishes all.good. Specials every night. Music on the weekends. Try I, you will like it.

We have been to Mona Lisa's many times and have nothing but good things to say about the restaurant. The service is great, waitstaff is always friendly and they know the menu and can suggest things that you might want to try. John is always upbeat and friendly with a joke or some witty chat. We were there for Easter... More

My wife and I eat here on a regular basis. I have also had company Christmas parties here as well. The menu includes innovative recipes, and the food is consistently excellent. The owner is the chef, and his wife also works in the restaurant so they have a personal commitment to do a good job. One of the signature dishes... More

I have been going to Mona Lisa Restaurant since I discovered it a couple of years ago. Must order their Sam's Special Chicken with Lobster Raviolis. Have recommended this to everyone I send there and they all say the same thing. It is the best they have ever had.
