I have been Monnalisa a few times when i miss pizza.
Very nice taste from original Italian food and cook.
The best pizza in the island! Don't miss if you stay in or plan to go to Haadrin.

After wandering around the whole of Haad Rin and finding nothing but cafe type eateries with basic furniture, table cloths and dirty menus with basic western content and not much eastern either, we came across the Monalisa which offers a nice restaurant feel and nice stonebaked pizza and homemade desserts.
One of the few places on the resort where you will feel like you are sat in a restaurnt.
It maybe wouldnt show up so well in other (nicer) resorts, but in Haad Rin it is in a class of its own.

Monnalisa is one of several Italian restaurants in haad rin in koh phangan.
We have eaten there twice and were able to sample the pizza, pasta, fish, gnocchi and desserts.

Pizza with Parma ham and parmesan - I truly love this topping combination and this pizza does not disappoint. Ingredients are fresh. only downside compared to top italian pizzas is the lack of crispiness at the bottom that gives the added crunch. Highly recommended.
Home made Tagliatelle with Bolognese sauce - good dish, only issue was with the richness of the sauce which I believe is caused by the tomatoes. probably due to the lack of good vegtables in the island. Otherwise a sold dish.
Gnocchi with tomato sauch - my girlfriend loved this, if only it was a bigger dish.
Salmon - solid dish, but i would recommend other restaurants for their fish.
Home made Tiramisu - We shared this one as it was quite big. recommended.
Chocolate mousse - solid dessert.

Bottom line:
Very good italian restaurant which I highly recommend.
It is not cheap compared to other eateries but you will find the same price levels in other italian restaurants on the island.
