Mona Lisa Laughs

Mona Lisa's has a warm atmosphere and a great selection of beers on tap, along with a friendly staff. The menu has an interesting assortment of pasta dishes to offer and the cooks do an excellent job preparing the meals. Good times are had by all, including Mona Lisa!

Good food, though somewhat expensive. The atmosphere is lacking. I felt like I was in a cafeteria with all the noise and echoing. It was very difficult to carry on a conversation. Not somewhere I would take someone for a "special" occasion.

Always heard Mona Lisa's was the place to go despite being pricey, but when I finely went there I was surprised at the range of choices and range of costs. I had the something fish sandwhich and it was a huge piece of fish on a great bun with good fries. Also delicious!

If you love the old building, high ceiling, comfortable atmosphere you won't be disappointed! Very nice staff who are mostly young, it's in the heart of campus for UWEC. Plenty of great drinks and tap beer. Food was great flavor and not overflowing, thank you! Open fireplace in dining room was perfect on a winters night! Comfortable for dress or... More

Had a good Kentucky Bourbon Ale with meal. Prices seem very high for meals! A charge for bread!. Like the food selection, but cost is a factor of returns. They say no reservations, but it seems if you call ahead you can reserve a table???

Mona Lisa's has great food. The hard surfaces make it seem a bit loud in the restaurant sometimes but I certainly recommend the food.

Mona Lisa's is my most favorite place in town. Growing up in Chicago, I was spoiled by the restaurants I had access to. This town has multiple chain restaurants bu none with the quality of food and the atmosphere this place does. The menu changes according to availability of seasonal foods. Definitely want to make this a go to place... More
