It's always full so book ahead. They are on OpenTable. Plenty of menu offerings to pick from. Food is usually great but occasionally the pastas miss the mark. Lively atmosphere and nice decor.

An Eau Claire original, this restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere, an interesting menu and a locally famous wine list. Servers are always friendly and helpful.

Never have been disappointed. Favor the pasta dishes that are just scrumptious. Clam sauce linguini is one of my favorites as is the Alfredo dishes. Would enthusiastically recommend.

The food is great, very creative, and unique. Unfortunately, the beautiful space is too loud. That's really our only complaint.

Tremendous Italian cuisine, great wine selection and mixed drinks, exquisite deserts. Service is excellent, but you will pay for your experience. Great place to impress a date, but the final bill will set you back a bit.

Although we've been here before, we choose Mona Lisa's for our 25th Anniversary. The food was excellent, service was average. I love their cabernet--very smooth. The bar and décor throughout restaurant is stylish and relaxing yet stimulating. On a previous visit, the owner herself noticed...More

It had been awhile since I'd eaten at Mona's. It just had fallen off our restaurant radar, but last night we gave it a try. The bar decor was eclectic as ever, the drinks were well made and the wine selection. The menu had changed...More
