Mona Lisa is a very pleasant small restaurant on Galway's west side, convenient to the center of the city and just opposite the Crane Bar (fine music). They offer imaginative and well-prepared Italian/continental fare, and the service is efficient and friendly. All in all an agreeable experience.

11 of us came here after work on Friday night and we were all thrilled with the experience

The staff were lovely (I had to rearrange from the previous Friday night but they were so accommodating and helpful), the portions were huge & the food was delicious

10/10 ~ top marks. We will be back again
