Great Food & Excellent Service

The Mona Lisa has some of the best food I've ever had. I take my staff of educational consultants there everytime we meet in Hendersonville.

Excellent service, quaint atmosphere, and simply the best Italian food I have enjoyed at any restaurant. It felt like we were eating at Chef Franco's house!

Because of Franco's avid support of our church, my wife and I opted to give Mona Lisa a try. The evening was a busy one and, as a home cook, I immediately recognized Franco was tenaciously tending to the clientele who had arrived before us. Our reception was warm and we enjoyed our dining experience with Franco and his staff... More

If you haven't been to Mona Lisa an authentic italian restaurant you are missing out!! Hand made pasta, I repeat, Hand Made Pasta! There is not a dish on the menu you wont enjoy!! But my personal favorite dish is the Chicago style ribeye steak. There is not a place in Hendersonville or Asheville with a better steak hands down!!!... More

Their Italian food is some of the best we've ever had, and we have lived all over the U.S. We personally love the pizzas, lasagna, lobster raviolis, meatballs, and house salad. The owner,... More

If you're tired of "make believe" Italian food, give Mona Lisa a visit soon! The food is superb. Say hi to Franco - tutto benessimo!

Local Italian restaurant with delicious food, generous portions and great prices. We stayed at a bed and breakfast around the corner that recommended them. We had the four seasons pizza and it was amazing. Most of the customers were local and could tell they were regulars. Couldn't help but notice the dishes and portions on everything that was ordered, you... More
