We arrived just before 8 pm and so were their first guests of the evening. We were shown into a room with well set out tables with cloths, cutlery, glasses and a bottle of wine. but the television was on, and the staff were enjoying it. We do not speak much Italian, but understood that the bottle of wine was not included, we accepted it anyway. The menu contained some familiar dishes, and in a spirit of adventure we chose some we could only guess at. What I thought would be a tomato soup turned out to be a wonderful dish of mussels in a tomato sauce. That would have filled me, but I had also ordered a meat course, slices of meat with a mushroom gravy, and a tomato salad (more or less what I had expected when it arrived). The meat dish was rather more salty than we are used to in the UK these days. My husband had ordered a fish dish, which was expertly filleted in front of him. During the course of the meal other guests arrived, a family of three, and a couple sat in our room. But there was another room, perhaps without a TV, if we were to go to Monna Lisa again I would ask for that room. Overall this was a more expensive meal than some other places in town.
