    We love going to Mona Lisa every time we are in San Francisco. The staff is very friendly and the owner seems to always be there at the dinner hours. The food is very good Italian fare and the portions are abundant. Mona Lisa is the restaurant we always suggest to family and friends.

    Eggplant was breaded and frozen , as it tasted like freezer burn or very stale bread crumbs. Too thin and like leather. The spinach, sauce etc was delicious, but couldn't get past the terrible eggplant.

    Our hotel recommended Mona Lisa and my spouse loves great Italian food. Where we live there aren't any great Italian restaurants. We arrived and we sat right away because there was barely anyone in the restaurant. We all figured out what we wanted to eat. When the waiter came over we gave him our order and I asked about a chicken dish, he said it was just okay. I then struggled to find something else to eat. I don't eat pasta or carbs so I settled on the GF pizza. Our food came our pretty fast and I bite into the pizza and the crust was awful and not cooked. I tried to flag the waiter down but no luck. I got up and carried my pizza to the front and told another waiter and the hostess/owner? They took the pizza and made it warmer but it was still disgusting. After a while, our waiter came over and I told him that the crust didn't taste right still. He asked if I wanted something else and I said no thank you. The bread that they give you to start with was stale. My spouse said this place wasn't good and we should have gone elsewhere. I complained to our hotel and one person said he never recommended Mina Lisa. If you go, good luck!

    Third time at Mona Lisa in SFO and as always you are welcomed and seated by the owner. Great locations on Columbus on trolley line and close to the wharf.

    This was our 4th visit. It used to be our "go-to" Italian restaurant when we visit SF. First time - awesome. Second time - same trip - still awesome. Third time - another trip - huh? what happened - maybe an off night - 4th time - food just fair, - nothing special - like time #3. Oh well. need to find a new local favorite.
