I called to advise them I was running 10 min behind for my reservation, the lady told me no problem at all. When I arrived, the place was packed but still got my seat right away! Staff is very friendly, service is great, and the food is exceptional! Will definitely visit again as well as recommend it to friends!
Excellent and consistent. Chef is personable and so is staff. Love it!
Always a great experience
We tried the Monalisa for the first time tonight. I fell in love with the place as soon as I walked in. Noise level is low and was nice to be able to have a conversation without yelling. The hostess and waitress were pleasant and helpful. The food was amazing. Owner cares very much about the place as he came out and talked with us as well as others. Looking forward to a return visit.
We love it ! The food is always great service is great the hostess is always pleasant!
Great place to dine!
Great little neighborhood gem! Authentic Italian dishes at reasonable prices. Everything was delicious. I had the cedar planked salmon and my husband had the chicken saltimboca. Both were excellent! Service was friendly and very prompt. We’ll definitely be back again!
We enjoyed our dinner, however I was disappointed that I had called the previous day and arranged to have desserts that I pre ordered brought out for the birthdays we were celebreating. They never came and our server had no idea what I was talking about so there was never a note made on our reservation. Food was good otherwise.
Monalisia has quickly become a favorite of ours. Great food and excellent service make this a great spot. Went in for my mother’s birthday. We were sat quickly and Debbie took amazing care of us. As usual.
Can’t say enough good things about this place!
The service and the food were excellent. We had a party of five and everyone loved their appetizer, entree and dessert. We will definitely return soon.
Staff was very accommodating and attentive. Food was delish . Everyone that tasted the alfredo sauce loved it! I had the special ravioli and it was excellent. Everything is made from scratch which we appreciated .We will definitely be back again soon
We frequent this restaurant. We have never had a bad meal or bad service. We highly recommend it!
As always, food very good, service very attentive. Never had a bad meal there!
I love this Restaurant. The food is always delicious, the servers are very polite and professional. And as an added benefit it’s a byob. If you forget your wine you can buy a bottle from a local winery which carry. They also can cater parties which are lovely and very reasonable.
Food was very good.
Ate everything on my plate, including dessert.
Didn’t leave a crumb.
A nice place. Good food. A little noisy, though.
Food was excellent and the service was great. The staff is friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful night out with friends in an elegant and friendly place.
Go there frequently. Great local spot with interesting menu
AWESOME! This is by farvthe BEST Italian food around! If you want awesome food and aweome service make sure you go!
My husband and I were dying to try this place after hearing about it from friends. It is a great BYO to go to with a nice bottle of wine. There are a ton of food options, so there is something for everyone. We tried the flatbread with longhots, scallops wrapped in bacon, calamari, and clams casino for our appetizers. Each app was great and cooked just right. The house salad was also good. For dinner I tried to Eggplant Parm and a side of gnocchi (which were homemade) and my husband the Fruitta di Mare special...both were very very good! My dish is self explanatory, his had a nice amount of lobster, shrimp, scallops, and crabmeat. His pasta was cooked just right. The diablo sauce was good as well. The only reason we skipped dessert was, because of all of the apps we filled up on. We can't wait to go back, because there is more we would like to try from the menu.
Open Table screwed up - restaurant did not have our reservation but were able to accommodate us
We were celebrating a birthday. The service and food was excellent. We look forward to our next visit.
Alam always goes out of his way to greet his customers and make them feel welcome. This evening my husband had the pork osso bucco special and it was amazing...very tender and the sauce
Was flavourful, and rich with Flavor. It was paired with fantastic mushroom risotto- he was a very happy man! I had a diver scallop special that was just delicious. Perfectly seared huge diver scallops over top of tortellini covered in a beautiful sun dried tomato/mushroom cream sauce. Soooo good. We love coming here— not only is the food great, but the staff is warm and attentive! Thank you again for a wonderful meal!!!
Our favorite restaurant to go to!!! We try something new all the time! They never disappoint!
Perfect place to celebrate a birthday! We were a party of 5 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal! welooking forward to
First dining experience at this restaurant was one of the best ever. You begin to feel such a welcoming and warm atmosphere the second you walk in as you are greeted by Mimi - possibly the best hostess/restaurant manager I have ever met. You immediately recognize the "above and beyond" solution-oriented attitude to make a customer feel welcome.
Upon getting seated at the table, specially selected by the restaurant for your wedding anniversary dinner, the experience continues assisted by a friendly waitress and perfect food.
After desert, the owner/chef was introduced. You hear and feel his gratitude to you as a customer for being there and his passion for the profession centered around making customers happy. We spoke for a while.
Thank you for such a great experience, team Monalisia. So happy we chose to try you restaurant for the first time and will absolutely frequent it in the future.
Food and service are always exceptional! We had the appetizer sampler last night that was phenomenal!!
Always a great experience with delicious food!
my wife has a dairy allergy and they were very accommodating and the food was delicious.
Our dinner was wonderful and the service and attention to details were impeccable. Our entire group of 6 all enjoyed their entrees.
Great place! One where we will again dine!
MonaLisia is awesome! We’ve enjoyed very meal we’ve had there!! Definitely recommend it to family and friends!!!
The calamari is always excellent. I usually opt for the eggplant my particular favorite but this time I got the brazino special with tortellini. It was huge and very delicious.
Very impressed with this restaurant and would highly recommend. My husband and I met another couple we hadn’t seen in awhile for dinner. Don’t be deceived by the store front as it appears to be a pizza joint but was beautifully decorated and had an Italian ambiance. The food was so delicious we asked to meet the chef who was also the owner. The chicken piccata was fabulous the sauce was like velvet and the chicken was very tender. The muscles in white were tasty the long hits yummy and the salmon done perfectly. The cheesecake was light and delicious. We sat for hours and were not rushed. Would definitely go back
Great food as always, and our waitress was excellent.
Awesome Food, Great Atmosphere and Attentive Service!
Have been here many times and enjoy the food. However, this time, the first cut of my chicken I found a hair. The waiter took it back and returned in about 10 minutes with a new one. For my entree, I substituted veggies for the pasta. Upon getting the bill, we noticed that there was an upcharge of $2.50 for substitution. So not only was I served a dish with a hair in it (which I know sometimes) happens, they had the nerve to charge me for the substitution. I didn't expect my meal for free, but that just blew my mind. It will be a long, long, time, if ever, we go there again.
I took my family there for my daughter's 31st birthday. The food was excellent, the waitress was wonderful and the owner came over a few times to talk to us, very nice lady. I would go back again, I would love to try their lunch also, and it's a BYOB, and we loved the dinner special, $21.95 for an appetizer salad and they gave you quite a few choices for dinner and dessert was included, cannot beat that price for all that food.
Excellent all around! And in a small shopping centre .
I thought service was slow. We waited a long time for our salads, so long I asked if it comes with our entree.
It wasn’t much longer after that we received our salads.
