The restaurant is in a strip shopping center but when you open the door, it's old world Italian. The food was delicious and the portions are huge; only one person, in our group of ten, finished their entire plate. Our waitress, Sandy, was excellent; just let her take care of you! The chef came and visited too. A very good... More

The food is great! Authentic Italian food with a very quant atmosphere. Very clean, never have had an issue with my order or the way it was prepared. Overall I would highly recommend this little taste of Italy, Mona Lisa.

I see other reviews how good this place is which I just don't understand. I guess if you like bad wine, white bread with I think some oil on it. I ordered the pasta alla marco polo which sounded good, but it was pasta swiming in a plate of flour paste with no taste what so ever. four shrimps and... More

Are you looking for a small, intimate "old neighborhood Italian" venue? Mona Lisa fills the bill. Dishes are authentic, bountiful and served steaming hot! Service is personable and timely. Mangia (EAT UP) Y'All.

Amazing Greek salads and enough pizza to eat for two days. The waiting staff never let your cup get low. Great atmosphere for the whole family. Also great wines and beers that is great with your meal.

The Timballo --like lasagna al forma but with crepes-was piping hot and full of flavor--I'd never had it and would order it again, like the terrific eggplant parmagiana I had last time. Kathy was my server and was so sweet and accommodating and then Franco the owner came to chat with me as it was close to 9pm...he loves to... More

To set up this review, the restaurant was extremely busy so service was understandably a bit slow, but our orders came out in correct order and the waitress did check back several times to see if we were happy. Our food was amazing. It's been a long time since I have had a perfectly dressed Caesar Salad. No gloppy mayonnaise... More

Amy and I took my mom to Mona Lisa for the first time. Telling her it was the best Italian restaurant around wasn't enough, we had to show her. Once again, Franko and the staff did not disappoint. Amy and mom shared the Four Seasons Pizza and both loved it. Still couldn't finish it so lunch for me the next... More

This is a small restaurant run by a family. Food was excellent but the menu is well done. Wait staff good to explain dishes and make recommendations.

This little known eatery is off the beaten path of downtown Main Street. The owner operated restaurant serves excellent Italian fare as well as hand crafted pizzas. The owner's wife will seat and serve you with a welcoming smile and excellent service. Good simple food at good simple prices.
