Mona Lisa Restaurant Review

: Over several decades occupying a nondescript storefront space, Mona Lisa has packed them in because of its pizzas, hearty Mediterranean-style salads and bountiful pasta dishes. The kitchen bakes its own pizza crusts and breads, adding substantially to the appeal of the pies and sandwiches. The house Greek feta salad dressing is legendary, as is the Mardi Gras pasta. Order the garlic bread and you'll be given the house signature pizza, thickly layered with mozzarella and olive oil and studded with bits of roasted garlic. Lasagna is the leader of the pasta pack. It’s all good, but really --- go to Mona Lisa for the pizza. Desserts vary, but always include homemade tiramisu. The limited, moderately priced wine list focuses on red wines, with U.S. to global selections. A good number are offered by the glass.
