We have re-opened our dining room and have extended hours! We are open from 11am to 8pm today. The new hours are 12-8 Sunday, 11-8 Monday through Thursday and 11-9 Friday and Saturday.
The dining room is open at 50% capacity along with the outside deck. All of our staff members are following strict policies regarding sanitization procedures inside Mona Lisa’s, including regular disinfection of all surfaces, the removal of self-serve items from communal areas, and maintaining the highest level of sanitation and food safety in our kitchen and bakery area. We will be checking the wellness of staff upon arrival to work, taking everyone’s temperature. Our goal is to continue to do what we do best: create and serve our food and gelato with love and care. We will do that with the safety of our team and our community as our first priority.
We ask that only healthy folks enter the dining room. Please continue to practice social distancing and wash your hands frequently.

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 dessert 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.
