It was so nice to find a BYOB restaurant close to home that offers table linens! They offered a variety of mostly Italian dishes with several specials. The prices are comparable with other quality restaurants. Our waiter was very charming. We will definitely return.

This was the first time we ate at Monalisia and we found this very popular restaurant to be very good. We were not disappointed! Their menu was Italian based, very comprehensive and the dishes we ordered were very good. The noise level was low which allowed for discussions without ear strain and the service was outstanding. Being a BYOB, made the restaurant even better. It is truly a place that we will visit again.

We went to Monalisia for Father's Day based only on online reviews which made me a bit skeptical but it far exceeded all our expectations. The food, the service, and the ambience were great.

Nice staff, good food. Noisy environment and tables too close together. I don't think we should know intimate details at neighboring tables. We'd go back again but not anytime soon.

This was our 4th visit to this wonderful restaurant. The food and service is top notch. I have enjoyed a different entree each time and have not once been disappointed!! The owner/chef always takes a moment to come by the table to say hello and make sure that the dining experience is up to expectation. Looking forward to our next visit to try another delicious selection.

Very tasty meal...the wait Staff was very attentive, but the salad took very long to be brought out & so did the meal considering there was only 2 other small tables that were being waited on at the same time!! I know freshly prepared food takes longer, but it seemed excessive!

My husband and I love coming to MonaLisia-- Alam, Mimi and the staff always go out of their way to make us feel welcome and provide a great meal. We were hoping to try the new sea scallop appetizer, but unfortunately, missed it. However, had a fantastic meal, soup and dessert. Thank you all!

What a gem! Totally unexpected. I drive by this strip mall all the time and never noticed this place. Thanks to open table we gave it a try. So happy we did. Great service and excellent food. The sauces are perfection. So nice to have the owner/chef come to the table to greet us. The staff is friendly and attentive. Can’t wait to go back.
