Not only is the pizza delicious but the menu for sitting down is great. But the best thing about this place is the staff. Juan and Julio are very friendly behind the counter as well as the rest of the wait staff. Great place for...a slice or to grab dinner to stay or go. Either way good stuffMore

Food is generally very tasty. Great to go with several people, so you can taste many more items on their menu.

Had another fantastic dinner at Mo’nelisa last night. That chowder was some of the best I’ve ever had. Packed with delicious shrimp and chunks of fresh white fish. Super flavor. Perfect consistency. Rest of the meal was great too. Broccoli Rabe with sausage and rigatoni...and the eggplant parm are highly recommended. Favorite place to dine or go for a slice.More

Loved the zucchini linguini together with their Mini meatballs with their homemade sauce. And fresh hot bread

We visited on a Sunday afternoon after a walk on the boardwalk. At the risk of insulting the Italian half of my family, this might have been the best sauce and pasta I have ever had. It was so tasty and delicious. I highly recommend...the meatballs for an appetizer. I had the shrimp for a main course and it was out of this world. The next time I visit, I will have to try and save some room for dessert :)More

Overpriced ans tasteless food. My friend and I had dinner there on August 23 2017. We ordered 2 pasta dishes which were a la carte. My 6 piece baked ravioli with (supposedly) Alfredo sauce cost $22.95. My friend's small dish of baked lasagna was around...$19.00. With one drink each and a very small portion of baked clams the total was $79 and change. Not pleased with the price or the food which was tasteless despite adding grated cheese and black pepper. Since I'm in the food business I would NOT recommend this place. It's a glorified, over priced pizza joint.More

We ordered the seafood dish with linguini in white sauce. The food is delicious. The portion is enough. Will go back again.

The first time at Mo' Nelisa was so good my wife and I return three times in one week. I am currently working my way down the menu and have not been disappointed. The service is excellent and the food the best Italian on the...South Shore. I have returned many times with friends and family and have enjoyed an excellent dining experience .More
