Great side street restaurant

I can go back every week and have my favorite, Veal Mona Lisa. Tried something different, lasagna. It was good but very rich. I'll have to eat salad for the rest of the week. Owners are great hosts. Next time I will try the pizza. It looks thin, just like I like it!

Mona Lisa doesn't need any gimmicks and it doesn't bother using them. It's all about the menu, which is not tremendously huge but has enough choices. The pasta is homemade and delicious. Fettuccine was rich and creamy. Their house tomato sauce was a bit sweet for my taste, but I added red pepper and fixed it right up. Portions are... More

Mona Lisa's is one of the best Italian places. The food is authentic. They have the BEST, AND I MEAN THE BEST "EGGPLANT" I have ever tasted, and I have had a lot of eggplant. They make you feel like family, even if you go in alone. Keep up the good EATS.

This is a great place to eat. We have eaten here a few times while staying at the 1898 Waverly Inn (another great place). The owners and staff are pleasant and the food is great. Be patient, it is a small

If you want authentic Italian food, you don't have to fly to Italy. I'm very picky when it comes to Italian food, being Italian. I felt like I was sitting at my Grandma's dinner table. The portions are large, and the food, OMG, thee best I've every had in ANY Restaurant. I will definitely be back on my next visit... More

Mona Lisa has the freshest and tastiest Italian food around. Feels like your eating with family. Just sad its so far away from Texas.

My wife & I love the quaintness of Mona Lisa. The service is always excellent. The food, the food! Absolutely authentic Italian! Lasagna, YUM! Veal Saltimbocca, YUM! Even the best Ribeye in the area. Oh & when it comes to Pizza, we pick it up @ Mona Lisa, it's that good! Great place to bring your out of town guests.... More

I went here after a long work day. Didn't want extravagance, and especially noise. At nearly 8pm on a Tuesday night, this smallish restaurant had just a few tables seated. So, I was immediately seated, and immediately waited upon. Wanting something simple, I ordered pasta with meat sauce. It came with a fresh garden salad and garlic bread. The bread... More

I ordered the chicken parmesan dinner and it was so huge I brought 2/3 of it home with me. Excellent marinara sauce, chicken cooked perfectly, and came out hot and fresh. Service was spectacular and I even met the owner. I grew up in an Italian neighborhood in New York and the marinara sauce here is just like their old... More
