Mona Lisa Italian Restaurant, San Diego, CA

Mona Lisa Italian Foods: Restaurant & Deli on Urbanspoon

I had dinner here last night after work, with a couple co-workers. I picked it from Google Maps. Mona Lisa is in the Little Italy part of San Diego.

We got there about 1815 and were immediately seated.

The iced tea was excellent, and kept refilled. The meal started with a garden salad that had the following in it: Two kinds of lettuce. One (1) black olive. One (1) banana pepper. One (1) small piece of tomato. I got ranch dressing. It was excellent! I asked for some extra, and instead of a little paper cup, I got a small bowl. Great stuff, some of the best.

The meal comes with some toasted garlic bread, and it was great, both by itself and with a bit of ranch dressing on it.

I ordered chicken marsala. It came with a side of spaghetti and marinara. The marinara was excellent, the noodles al dente. The chicken marsala was just the right amount of food. It was tender. The marsala was subtle and full of flavor, great stuff. I was very impressed by it. I would enjoy that marsala often if I could.

We left around 2000, the place was about 1/3 full. My check was about $20. Service was perfect. Recommended.
