“Love it, but be careful if you have to eat gluten free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Have eaten here many times, always good, but if you have to eat gluten free, be very careful as staff do not necessarily know what that means.

“Split”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We have eaten at Mona's twice. The first experience was terrible. We purchased drinks at the bar when we arrived and didn't get a second drink until after our food was already eaten. Our appetizer was delivered at the same time our meal was brought to our table. The food was average at best. Our second visit was a week ago. Friends of ours talked us into going. I am very glad they did as this experience was much better! Our server was very good and our food was excellent! I highly recommend their seafood entrees.

“Great local Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

We have three of the best Italian restaurants in Sheboygan an Mona Lisa ranks up there with them. Reasonably priced. Good flavor. Nice wine and beer selection.

“Not cheap, but worth every penny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

What can I say? It is a lovely, cozy, brick-walled, fireplaced bistro with an ambitious menu. Hubby and I went there for our anniversary - he had one of the Meditteranean-influenced seafood dishes, heavy on the olives and capers; I had a luscious braised short rib preparation on polenta. We both had tiramisu for dessert. The service was fresh-faced youth with a professional flair. The menu changes frequently, but it is hard to go wrong.

“Mona Lisa's Eau Claire, WI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great food, great atmosphere.

Lisa uses fresh ingredients and changes her menu regularly. The entrees are great from the appetizers to the main menu! In summer sitting outside is really great. You can hear better out there than inside. There's a huge fire place with a great big red couch by it which is a perfect place to enjoy a nice drink with a special friend. I love Water Street in Eau Claire and think it has great potential. A place like Mona Lisa's adds class to this area. How often do you find great food and great atmosphere?!!
