Like the food selection and consistent quality. Dislike the atmosphere and decor, and walking in thru pizzeria and kitchen area that looks like it could use a good scrub. Very busy kitchen and dining room which may account for the disarray at times? But honestly, if you can look past that, the food is really great!

We visited MonAlyssa last evening, our third visit over the past few months. Shrimp in a champagne garlic sauce was delightful, and at $21.00, an exceptional value. Crusty bread and salad included. As a suggestion, order an entree such as this over pasta or with garlic and oil over the pasta. Remember to bring a bottle of wine!

The food is delicious and always fresh. The staff is friendly, the restaurant clean and it is a BYOB.

This restaurant serves delicious food at good prices. It's quaint and has nice ambiance. It's a must if you're spending time in Point Pleasant and Bay Head. Been there twice and doesn't disappoint.

This is a small local BYOB Italian Restaurant. Brian one of the owners will ensure you have a sincere greeting as well as fabulous food. It is true you need reservations as a guarantee of a seat. This is one of our best go to for great service as well as food. Absolutely everything is not only fresh, but when... More

We are local to the area and usually go at least once every two weeks. We always make a reservation just to play it on the safe side and we always enjoy what we order. It is a BYOB and does get crowded in the summer but having reservations always helps. It's a great place to stop and have a... More

I ordered takeout from here and while it wasn't bad, it wasn't great either. Very mediocre. The red sauce was too sweet on the sausage and peppers and the pizza was gummy. Based on my takeout experience, I am not inclined to try dining in the restaurant. Disappointing since I live nearby and there always seems to be cars in... More

Not a fancy restaurant by any means but we have never had bad service or bad food. Pleasant atmosphere, BYOB, food has always been fresh and hot when served. It is very small inside dining area so you are on top of each other and for the most part its an enjoyable environment although we have encountered some obnoxious phoneys'... More

Had reservations. Apparently that means you still wait and wait and wait in the pizza parlor for your restaurant table. Manager totally not in control of dining room. Best part was the waiter and waitresses who couldn't do enough to try to apologize for this.( kind of got impression they were used to this happening) . Tables were not bussed... More

One thing the Jersey Shore has plenty of is basic Italian restaurants...in particular Italian restaurants that are restaurant/pizza joint combos. MonAlyssa is one of those places. A place where the restaurant menu is clearly a step above pizza joint, but the service, atmosphere and mentality has not risen above pizza-in-a-box countertop service. Our recent experience went like this. - Arrive... More
