You can eat there but you probably won't come back for more. Pizzaz are not better than takeaway and the other italian dishes are uninteresting.

The pasta with sausage was ok. But when we checked the bill and noticed that they charged us 98 DKK for 2 glasses of sparkling water we thought it was a joke. It wasn't. That is some 6,5 EUR for a single glass. Way above the acceptable.

Nice situated restaurant with nice food at a decent price. I ordered a pizza, a very good Calzone and my wife had lamb. Both were delicious. The wine of the house was really nice (the one more expensive). Great service.

We came across this excellent Italian restaurant whilst out strolling and how lucky were we! Unpretentious, yet upmarket, Mona Lisa represents great service and great value for Denmark. The menu has great range and our teenage sons were well impressed which is not easy! I suggest you try the Osso Buco (Veal) which was magnificent together with a well priced... More

Drinks arrived promptly but waited ages for our antipasti plate for lunch. When table nearby who arrived after us were served we asked where ours was but still waited 10 mins before it arrived with excuses but no apology. Was amazing food but as a result of a quick lunch taking nearly 90mins we missed seeing through the HC Andersen... More

Had a great pizza with superior service. The house wine was good and we really had terrific meal. One of the best restaurants that we visited while in Odense.

I am a coeliac and therefore need to eat gluten free. Surprisingly, Italian restaurants often come up trumps in this regard, and Mona Lisa was no exception. They offer their pasta dishes with a gf option which is what I had. It was very tasty. They also usually can do a gf pizza but had none available at the time... More

Friends invited me to this tiny restaurant because of their good experience before. The menu gives a good choice of italien food. I chose the Calzone and were very happy with it. Recommend to take a bottle of house wine too.

Mona Lisa could easily offer probably best pizza in town. Also really good pasta and other dishes. Portions are big, quality is high, prices are reasonable and you can hear Italian language coming from the kitchen. What else do you need? I can recommend day dishes until 16 o'clock - great deal for 10 euros.

The quality of food is actually very good - and absolutely Italian style. The design and the atmosphere is also nice and comfortable. The Staff is very friendly and helpful BUT on a sunday evening = no rush hour here .... the waiting time to be served - and the time between the dishes is unacceptable ...it might be a... More
