Very Good

Went there on the recommendations of friends and had a great meal. We were seated immediately and the service was very attentive. All meals were prepared well and server hot. The prices are just a little bit above average but well worth it. We will return again to try other dishes.

We've passed monalyssa many many times and decided that since it had decent ratings, we would give it a try. We should've kept passing it. How this place was rated 7/35 restaurants in point pleasant, I have no idea. Service was slow. Place is very dated. Unusual, intriguing menu with very disappointing food. We had the bruschetta for an app,... More

A wonderful experience! As always. Grace did a beautiful job as our server. The meal was delicious. Surf- n - Turf and my husband's favorite Pork Osso Bucco. Yummmm!

This place has some of the best Italian food at the Jersey Shore. We come every few months, and the food is always terrific. Portions are HUGE, almost impossible to finish an entrée, especially if you order appetizers. Restaurant is BYOB. Many of the traditional Italian dishes are our favorites here, including the bruschetta, eggplant rollatini, chicken marsala, and various... More

From the service to the meal, we truly enjoyed our meal at MonAlyssa. It is a great neighborhood restaurant. We enjoyed clams as our appetizer followed by chicken parmagiana. It's a BYOB, making it even more reasonable in price. Enjoy!!

This my favorite restaurant! They have great service, freshly prepared Italian food, in a charming atmosphere! It is a B.Y.O.B. and is reasonably priced! They also have attentive staff even for home delivery. Their off site catering is delivered hot and prepared perfectly. It is a special night out bring your friends and family!

This is our go to restaurant . My wife raves about the chicken marsala! The restaurant is family-owned and Brian, the manager, is very friendly and accommodating. The menu, food, service, and the atmosphere are all superb. Many times for special occasions we cater food from them. You enter into the restaurant through the informal pizzeria, and then enter the... More

The website reads, ". . . we serve everything from thin crust pizzas to contemporary Italian comfort food." But, it fails to mention that if you want pizza, you are NOT allowed to sit in the dining room. REALLY!?!?!?!? A party of nine, after touching everything on the table and speaking with the manager, is made to sit in front... More

This has become our go to restaurant for Italian dinner. we stopped in last evening and again had a great dinner. We first ordered the cold antipasto which was a delicious combination of salad, cheese, peppers, olives, cheeses and meats. It is a meal in itself. Next we had a delicious salad with blue cheese dressing. I ordered chicken scarpiello... More

We wound up here by accident, and it worked out fine. It is truly a storefront pizza parlir, but with some hot dishes. The gentleman who served us was nice and efficient. My chef's salad was lovely, and tasty. My husband didn't love the blue cheese on his buffalo chicken pizza (he has had ranch, which he prefers), but otherwise... More
