Mona Lisa Italian Restaurant, Pizza, and Lounge is owned by Guiseppe and Rosalie Pirrone.
Mona Lisa's provides food and beverages to a wide variety of clientele, although heavily supported by the hospitality industry. The hours of operation are 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Monday through Friday and 4:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Our concept of an Italian restaurant is an example of the classic American dream of free enterprise. Inception began over thirty one years ago, by the Pirrone family of Palermo, Sicily. Uncompromising food quality, unfaltering dedication to personalized customer service, and affordable prices have been the driving forces behind the venture.
Fresh menu items are cooked to order every time. Produce is hand picked by the owners, and gourmet desserts are prepared regularly. All sauces are hand make from family recipes passed through generations. These are just some aspects of what makes Mona Lisa's food quality stand out.
Customer service is facilitated by the regular nature of patrons. Bartenders and servers greet customers by name frequently. New customers are quickly made to feel as though they were old friends. It does not take long for them to feel as at home as any of the regular customers. Many new customers quickly adopt Mona Lisa's as their home away from home. This is an important goal of the owners and staff, and a vital element in the success of this small establishment in a sea of large corporate powerhouses. The importance of a friendly, personal welcome cannot be underestimated.
The founding principle of Mona Lisa's is affordability. This is important because we want to insure that our place is one that can be visited often. High prices make this difficult even if all other factors are superb. Prices are kept low to facilitate the comfortable and welcoming atmosphere, and to make our restaurant an inviting place for families. A outstandingly large 16x16 Sicilian style pizza costs $11.25, drinks are as low as $1.95 with unlimited free refills. An excellent dinner for four at Mona Lisa's, with leftover lunch for the next day, can cost as little as $14.95. We take pride in offering a wide variety in menu features and prices, while maintaining a high quality product.
Mona Lisa's is located at the corner of College Parkway and U.S. 41. Mona Lisa's is nestled in a hub of commercial and residential traffic. One additional advantage of the location is the twenty cinema located within a block of Mona Lisa's, making it perfect for a after-movie drink or late night snack.
