If you are looking for authentic Italian cooking in a comfortable/casual atmosphere, this is it. The menu has variety and is priced well; from $10-$30, depending. The specials were in the low $20s and were very desirable. I got the seafood stuffed ravioli. You can choose whatever sauce you want. I chose marinara and came with melted cheese. Delicious. The...

We decided to give Mona Lisa a try instead of heading toward Asheville for our usual Friday night. We are so glad we did. The pasta is freshly homemade, the meat sauce has the best tomato flavor, and the meatballs are the best any of us have ever had in a restaurant. Oh, and the tiramisu...just OH. So good! It's...

Italian food at its best. We drove from the upstate of South Carolina just to eat here and it was well worth it. The sauce was amazing, the flavors blended perfectly. The Chicken Parmesean was outstanding and the portions are very generous. My wife had the ravioli with the butter walnut sauce and wow, I can't say enough about the... More

We first stumbled upon this cute little restaurant a couple of years ago and have been there frequently. This is the "go to" restaurant in our circle of friends when we want an authentic Italian meal with a quaint atmosphere. We highly recommend you try it!

We LOVE Mona Lisa!!! We were lucky enough to be vacationing an hour away and went twice while on vacation. Franco used to own a restaurant in Longwood before relocating! The food is authentic and incredible! I have never left a review of a restaurant, but Mona Lisa is a MUST!!!! Great food, price, and atmosphere! I recommend the chicken... More

Four of us dropped in for a light supper on a Sunday night and decided to have a Four Seasons Pizza. It was the perfect pizza to share, each fourth of the pizza was topped with something different so we all had our favorites. The dinners going past us being served to other diners looked delicious. Menu selections were varied... More

I am very picky about Italian food and found this place to be authentic. The best dish we had was the homemade pasta. Just like my mother used to make. His sauce was good but could use a bit more seasoning. Usually it is the other way around and some chef's over season especially with oregano, a classic sign of... More

Unless our visit was unusual for the place, I don't get the other glowing reviews. The restaurant is small and on this night crowded and very noisy. Our waitress was very friendly but the service was extremely slow. We had to wait for everything and the meal was just okay. I love eggplant parm but theirs was mediocre and the... More
