Busy place with lots of tradesmen in and out. Relaxed atmosphere. Good size breakfast and food good. Service good. Prices reasonable (£5 for full breakfast with coffee).

A family run Italian restaurant with all fresh home cooked food. Good specials daily menu plus good a la carte menu. Mainly a workmans cafe during mornings but everybody welcome. Enjoy a nice glass of wine with your meal. The House red is very good. Highly recommend house trifle. Very reasonably priced. Good selection of meat dishes, pasta and fish.... More

My husband, his sister, and I are staying in Chelsea for Christmas this year. We spend our days in the city and are usually exhausted by dinner time. However, two nights ago we were in search of a warm, healthy meal away from crowds but also reasonably priced. We tried Mona Lisa because we came across it on our walk... More

Visited with family. The staff were very friendly. Good choice on the menu. Food was well cooked and served with a smile. Had the steak. It was mouthwatering. Very good value considering it was on the King's Road

Lovely low key venue packing a big punch. We were greeted by the usual friendly staff who got us a nice table away from the draft of the door. We ordered some olives which I must admit was pretty crap but the garlic bread made up for this. Our main course was a short wait but they had kindly informed... More

I asked whether the minestrone soup was vegetarian and the waitress said it was. I asked if she was sure, she said yes. I asked whether she was absolutely sure that the stock in the soup was vegetarian and not chicken or some other animal, she said yes, it was vegetarian. I ordered the soup and noticed little globules of... More

In London yesterday with friends and wanting to eat I remembered from a long time back about the Mona Lisa Cafe Restaurant. Hoping that it had not changed we went along to the King's Road and entered at about 7 pm. There were plenty of tables available but it was still the same family run place. A very friendly welcome...

Decided to find a place for brunch that was not a "chain" walking up Kings Road saw Mona Lisa Cafe. What a great find. Delicious omlette served quickly by friendly staff. Now I have discovered this place will always return when I visit London. Excellent prices for London.

One we always come back to. We like the easygoing atmosphere, and the food is fine by us..Staff are friendly and welcoming. Comforting Italian food for the non discerning.

Everytime we come to the UK we head straight to Mona Lisa for a good slap up meal. Love the atmosphere, the staff work really hard. The prices are amazing, always have daily specials on for about £10. A real gem if a restaurant. Never change..please :)

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
