“Good food but Lack of atmosphere”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We went there at lunch time, and the food was tasty, i had a pasta carbonara and my girlfriend had a Lasagna and she loved it and me too. I think the waitress was friendly but she didnt have the right attitude of service and as another review that i read , we saw the "chef" smoking which shouldnt be doing it in front of the customers.

“Delicious food! Lazy waitress”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We went to monalisa searching for nice Italian food. As we realised there were real Italian chefs there, we thought, this might be awesome!
And it was!!!

I ordered the beed lasagna which was so tender, juicy and tasty. Besides, the piece was very generous!
My boyfriend ordered fettuccine carbonara which was also very creamy and tasty! And the pasta was al dente!! Veeeery good food and beautiful sea front restaurant.

The only "bad" thing to say, is that the thai waitress acted very tired taking our orders and bringing them to us, like she was obligated to work. Very bad attitude. Then she sat down on a stretching her legs meanwhile we were eating. I didn't like that.

But as for the food, it's totally worth going, I'm looking forward to try the pizzas too!!! Maybe other waitresses are more cheerful and willing to work!

“Disappointed!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Thank god the food was nice, we weren't greeted with a smile in fact I thought we were invisible at first as it took that long for someone to greet us. Considering there was 2 of us we were sat at the end of someone else's table where there were 3 men. We didn't know who they were but were sat on a large table with them. People were smoking in the restaurant including the blokes on our table. Not very smiley service unlike any other place we'd been in Phangan as people are normally so friendly.

Food was ok but really disappointed in the service and like we were not welcome. Not how to run a good restaurant.

“Very heavy meal”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

We got 2 pizzas here and we found them very heavy. Thick crust pizza, although it was tasty. The chef was smoking in the restaurant 3 times walking in and out.

“Excellent Italian Food”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

We would definitely recommend this restaurant for top quality Italian food. The service was speedy and the pizza was delicious. We also had ravioli which was excellent quality. The staff weren't too friendly but everything else was perfect.
