Have been in "Gelato Shock" since Rita's closed recently. Decided to try Mona Lisa's. Almost didn't go inside once I saw the dirty windows/door. Terrible for any business. Anyway, didn't have Mango, which is the reason I'd gone, AND the trays that ice cream was...More

Visited the cafe right at lunch time with two adults and three young kids. Service was great and the gelato ice cream was a home run! Good variety of flavors as well as what I would consider lighter lunch items. The facility is adequate, nothing...More

This is a great place to stop in for lunch and a little dessert! I love their Paninis. The gelato is out of this world. I try a new one each time I visit.

After a Saturday run my friend and I stopped in here for lunch. The Thai noodle soup bowl with chicken was fantastic! And my friend loved the crab chowder. Then we had gelato which was amazing! I highly recommend the custard flavor.

We get gelato every time that we are in the area. Very clean. Many different choices of gelato. Makes it hard to pick just one. As good as gelato that I had in Italy.

Wow . Everything here is so good. Made in house and very fresh. The pimiento cheese on homeade ciabatta rolls are amazing. Spumoni Saturdays are my favorite. If your not familiar with spumoni stop in and get educated on the best tasting dessert around. You...More

I drive from Bristol for the sweet and delicious gelato, which I prefer over ice cream. Every flavor I have tried is delicious.

Really enjoy the lunch menu - home made soups, great bread, and delicious sandwiches. It's very casual, order at the counter; and while waiting in line you can be tempted by the gelato - all made in house. The flavors change frequently and all I've...More
