“Delicious Pizza but store front is lack luster”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

A friend told us to order from Mona Lisa's. We looooved the pizza when we first ordered it. We continued to order from there but noticed that each time the delivery time was slow and more than once we had to call to check on our status. However, the food was always delicious and hot when we got it. When we had a friend visiting we decided to go out for pizza and ate in the restaurant as we had heard that they have live bands on the weekends. The store front is located in a mostly abandoned strip mall and the restaurant only has a handful of tables (no booths) and that was with no band or stage set up. Haven't ordered from them in a whle because they are slower and a little more expensive than closer pizza delivery places.

“Awesome BLT Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012

I loved the BLT Pizza. Visiting from out of town and met a friend there. Besides the BLT pizza being one of the best pizzas I've ever eating, the staff were great. Our waitress was friendly and courteous. It has the appearance of a homey, comfortable place. While some might think it needs to be "updated," Mona Lisa's is full of character.

“Fantastic Pizza, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

We live nearby but hadn't been to Mona Lisa's in quite some time. Went on a Tuesday evening and found a bar had been added, the decor improved and an overall nice atmosphere.

Server was quick, attentive and efficient. We had the BLT White Pizza and the Masterpiece Pizza, plus the Sampler appetizer. All the food was excellent, and we needed a box to take some pizza home.

Highly recommended if you are in the East Ocean View or JB Little Creek area.

“Bad, really, really bad!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

Have you ever heard the saying 'there's no such thing as a bad slice of pizza'? Well Mona Lisa proves this theory wrong. Their pizza ranked highly as one of the WORST things I've ever put in my mouth! Just god awful. Almost inedible, disgusting, I should have asked for my money back. It's THAT bad. Plus the seating area was in shameful condition. Food scraps & garbage all over the place - not vacuumed - gross! My bad for not walking out immediately. Stupid.
