“Great little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

The food is wonderful and while one might have to wait outside for 15 or 20 minutes, it's worth the wait. Plus, you can get yourself a glass of wine to make the wait more pleasant!

“Love Mona Lisa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Ate at Mona Lisa the other night and was pleased yet again. I shared the spinach pizza with my mom and a friend which was amazing. The atmosphere is quaint and the restaurant was clean. The prices are fair and the portions are just right. They also have a nice wine selection.

“Great pizza place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner last night at Mona Lisa and it was great as always. When tourists think of New Orleans they don't think pizza but they should! The pizza was AMAZING! The restaurant is small but clean and the staff is friendly.

“Great pizza & service under stress!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Two of us shared the large seafood pizza with added anchovies and a bottle of red wine for $40. While other folks were losing their heads in the French Quarter, the staff here coped admirably and very courteously....all on Mardi Gras Day!!
