This truly great restaurant is Johnson City’s best kept secret. The home made soup and rolls are first class delicious, up there or better than any in Johnson City.
But wait, the freshly made Gelato, with its many nutritious flavors, is the best I ever tasted. The Gelato is just fabulous. WOW unbelievable.
Overall eating at the Mona Lisa is nothing short of fantastic, wonderful, five stars. Its first time customers cannot help but come back for more, again and again.
Hands down the best place for desert in Johnson city. I haven’t had a gelato at Mona Lisa’s that I did not like. Was never a fig fan until I had their fig and almond gelato and it is my favorite one so far.
The owners are very kind and friendly. Almost forgot, I had the chicken gumbo for lunch with thier homemade rolls and I’d say the soup was as good as the gelato!! A must go for die hard foodies.
