I ordered a small and wish I ordered a larger one. Crust was very good with great toppings. The aromas while I waited were very good and plan to go back for an italian dinner.

Not the newest & fanciest restaurant in town, but when you walk in the door and see those red-checked tablecloths and the traditional decor you know you are in for The Real Thing. There's a comprehensive menu and nothing disappoints -- great Italian food at the right price.

Ordered the shrimp Alfredo. Got a Caesar salad, 3 slices of bread, and 4 shrimp in my entrée. Very tasty, but way overpriced at $18 plus tax.

thank you for taking time to review us but I like to add some little things you missed, maybe because you didn't know; the pasta you ate was home made from scratch right here on location, so is the sauce and the bread, all made daily. Also you got 5 shrimp, not 4, and they are 16-20 per lb. So,... More

My husband and I have eaten at Mona Lisa many times, just the two of us and with other couples. The food is consistently good and, sometimes, excellent. Whether you get traditional pasta dishes, veal, chicken, seafood or steak, everything tastes freshly prepared and expertly seasoned. The prices are a bit high for Hendersonville, but the portions are more than... More

A neighborhood restaurant , great food at a reasonable price. I like the fettucini alfredo. The cozy environs are great.

My mom and I decided to stop at Mona Lisa before we did some shopping around town. We have heard good things about the restaurant and heard they had sometime on the menu my mom wanted to try. The restaurant is small and it was full. They only had two waitresses covering the whole restaurant. It seemed like they needed... More

After reviewing your past review, I kind know what food you like. Hot dog world got 5 star and you like Papa John and Applebee, along some other of the same caliber. My suggestion is for you to stick to that kind of food, so we at Mona Lisa will have more space for the aficionado customers whom over the... More

I am from the NYC/New England and DC area. We recently visited family in Hendersonville and went to this restaurant with another couple just as the place was about to close. The management was super nice and stayed open just for us! We are happy that they did because the food was delicious! We ordered a variety of dishes and... More

I dine at Mona Lisa's Restaurant when I dine out. I (and others) regard me as a fine chef, and can appreciate a fine chef's repertoire and little individual "touches" to usual Italian fare. Being a native New Yorker, I've been spoiled by the finest restaurants imaginable, and having good friends who themselves are gourmet chefs there and New Jersey... More

thank you Shirley, it was a pleasure to read your review and what made it more special is that came from someone who knows Italian food. People like you are the reason for trying harder and your words regenerate the supply of energy needed. Thank you. More

I'm sorry to write that Mona Lisa, our favorite restaurant in Hendersonville, is headed in a bad direction. The last few times we have been there, the service has gotten increasingly poor. Most recently, both the service and the food left much to be desired. My entree, the timballo, was not nearly up to par, and maybe worst of all,... More
