We tried this place because we had bought a Groupon. We were a little skeptical as it has the appearance of a bit of a dive Italian restaurant, located in end of a strip mall and decorated with red-checkered tablecloths. Never judge a book by its cover, though! The older woman serving us was kind and super friendly. We order... More

While not a pizza purist I avoid chains. Raised by NJ transplants, my youth was an eternal trek for "good" pizza in TX. I loved the whiff of yeast from this crust. Speaking of crust, it's intense, with drizzles of garlic and butter. Throw some kosher salt on it and add mustard voila: your own pretzel!! The everything pizza was... More

If you're within walking distance of Mona Lisa's Pizza, then you won't need to waste any gas. I certainly wouldn't bother to drive there. The food is, at best, mediocre American-Italian. That means that it is about three degrees of separation from authentic Italian.

Went for a pick up, was very surprised at the quality. We think the owner was having her birthday, she was very friendly. We enjoyed and will return. By the way it was better than Grotto Pizza.

Randomly came here and so glad we did. Food was amazing! Locally owned and operated. Staff cares and it is shown from the minute you walk in. They offer specials and all you can eat pizza. The pizza is so good!! You must try the pepperoni slice even if you don't like pizza. It's that good. The Stallone sandwich is... More

It's got it's own vibe. Great pizza & cheesesticks. Service was ok but the atmosphere is real. If I'm ever visiting Norfolk again, from Tennessee, I'll definitely be back.
