An amazing little spot. Great value at the $20 mark. Only still quite young having been open 11 months but one of the best options along lygon at at the moment

“Excellent Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We decided to drop into Mona Lisa on Lygon as part of one of my children's birthday celebrations.
The wait staff were very cordial and took us to our table for 6.
Unlike other restaurants in the strip we were not soliciting you into their restaurant.
The waitress was very good and nothing was too much for her or the male drinks waiter.
We had a variety of pasta dishes and they were very ample for most appetites.
By far the best dish that I tasted was the spaghetti and meatballs - 7 on each plate and they were a meal in themselves.

The drinks were of restaurant pricing for the area, the soft drinks could have been a touch cheaper.

As it was my son's birthday, the wait staff organise organised a flaming cake for my son, switched off the lights and the restaurant song him happy birthday.
It was a great touch by the restaurant and really made our night.

We finished with coffees and hot chocolates that got the thumbs up from all.
We had a wonderful evening and many thanks to team at Mona Lisa on Lygon.

“Great value and yummy food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Bought a deal on 'Living Social' - Glass of wine , dessert and coffee for $3.00 pp. Fabulous value. Husband and I shared 2 entrees as well as the deal. Food was exceptional - very fresh and tasty and the 'Death by Chocolate' dessert we had was to die for!. Our waitress was really lovely and nothing was too much trouble which contrasted with other meal deals we have bought - if you're going to offer these deals don't treat the people who buy them like 2nd class citizens!
We live in country Victoria but will definitely return next time in Melbourne and will certainly recommend to our City friends

“Sensational.”

Best Italian restaurant in Melbourne. Every dish was exceptional however the berry meringue stuffed with chantily cream was one of the most sensational desserts I have ever eaten.
