Mona lisa is one of those places that I have passed by several times, even went inside when I was 16 years old because my ex step sister wanted to get a work application from there but never actually ate there.
How did I then mysteriously decided to eat at Mona lisa, you may ask. It was Monday and I searched online for restaurants where kids eat free on Mondays and there they were.
My first impression of Mona lisa: Traditional & Authentic Italian Restaurant.
As you know, when in Rome you must go to the Vatican ( I think that's how the saying goes ) so we went to the Vatican which in this case is order all the amazing things you can get at a Italian restaurant.
We started off with mozzarella sticks and garlic bread for appetizers and we did not regret our choices, they were so flavorful!
Now, moving on to entree, I ordered a ham, mozzarella & gorgonzola calzone. I could have done without the gorgonzola as the ham is already salty and so is the gorgonzola and the mix of the two together made it an extra salty dish. Regardless of that, it was still really good.
My husband ordered the Shrimp Alfredo and we ordered chicken filets for the children and everyone was satisfied. Unfortunately, we were very stuffed and dessert was out of the question. I would definitely make a trip back, skip on the appetizers and have a delicious and authentic Italian cheesecake.
Overall, we had a very pleasant Monday night dinner at Mona lisa, the service was great and the food was delicious.
Enjoy the sweet side of life.
