I couldnt get enough of their delicious and filling sandwiches. I would love to take my friends here after a night of drinking. This place is great for breakfast and brunch.

The restaurant is good quality with large portions, but it's the deli that I really love. You can get delicious sandwiches made for you or sliced Italian deli meats that make you feel like you're in the old country!

I don't come here nearly enough because of all the other options in the area, but Mona Lisa is a great little place at the north end of Little Italy. I especially like the market out front. it's a great place if you are looking for a good

One of San Diegos Best: The service is very friendly, return customers become family! The food is authentically Italian! Fair prices. Overall its a great Italian Restaurant. One thing I really appreciate, they are willing to modify their menu selections if necessary, its never a problem. Any request is never a burden!

Quaint Italian deli for all your Italian needs. Great sandwiches: take a number an make your order. Usually only 5-10 minute wait at the most. Parking can be a challenge but its worth the adventure of finding a parking spot.

I live in San Diego and have been to many of the restaurants in Little Italy. Mona Lisa will not disappoint. I recommend the Veal Scallopini and the Chicken Marsala. The salad that comes with the dinner topped with their oil and vinegar dressing is very tasty. Start with a glass of Pinot Grigio by Zenato.

The pizza is exceptional, haven't tasted a better pizza yet. Unfortunately, the service is poor. They'll sit you and thats when the waiting begins. In addition to that, they don't even give you garlic bread! There's got to be another restraunt with equally tasty pizza.

The Mona Lisa restaurant has huge, family-oriented, well-priced Italian comfort food, while the deli next door has all the ingredients you need to prepare your own Italian feasts at home. The pizza is delicious, as well as their chicken mona lisa (baked chicken with ham, cheese, and marinara sauce).

Mona Lisa is by far one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego. I've been going there for about 13 years, and one of the main reasons is the tiramisu! It is the best. I don't think it has any kahlua at all - I think the sponge cake is just soaked in espresso. And that cream cheese! Oh my gosh - literally to die for!
If you go during the week, you can pretty much get seated right away. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night, I'd recommend going early or later in the evening. Many times I have waited around 20 minutes or so for a table, so plan accordingly.
Their food is pretty good. I usually get the lasagna marinara (sometimes the cooks add onions, sometimes they don't - I like it without), or the cheese raviolis with marinara sauce. My fiancee will get their meat dishes, and thinks they're pretty good. Their dinner salads are simple but good, and I love their minestrone soup, though on occasion it has been a bit bland. A little salt usually helps.
The service (most of the time) leaves something to be desired. Every so often we'll get a great waitress, but more often than not the service is a bit slow, and you'll realize you've been sitting there for 10 minutes or so with a drink just waiting to be refilled. However, the food and reasonable prices usually make up for this, and I generally try to go by there now whenever I'm in San Diego (recently moved to LA).

This shop has every thing an Italian could want. It's fully stocked with everything to make great food. They have lots of canned goods, sauces, tomatoes and dry goods, pasta, bread sticks. There is a deli with fresh salami and ravioli. You have to get some cookies, too.
