Definitely will be going back

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... read more

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

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

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
