Description & Atmosphere
North Beach has so many fun Italian restaurants and cafes that it's hard to choose which ones to go to. One of our favorites is Ristorante Mona Lisa — a little gem nestled on Columbus Avenue in the heart of North Beach.

Mona Lisa's long cozy dining room features beautiful painted walls and ceiling

Its long cozy dining room has the feel of an authentic Italian trattoria. It may not be the work of Michelangelo, but the restaurant's painted walls and ceiling are a sight to behold!

Food
Mona Lisa offers an extensive menu of delicious Pastas, Risottos, Homemade Pizzas, Antipasti, Veal, Chicken and Seafood entrées. Come with an appetite because the portions are healthy.

If you're in a group, we recommend that you order a few of the Antipasti dishes to start your meal — the Italian Sampler is made up of brushetta, tomatoes Caprese (tomatoes, topped with mozzarella and basil) and Sicilian Candy (wonderful caramelized roasted garlic) Yum! The Antipasto Misto comes with a mix of proscuitto crudo, salame, mortadella, cheeses and olives.

Enjoy a variety of fabulous pasta dishes — Spaghetti, Fettuccine, Penne, Ravioli, Rigatoni, Tortellini, Gnocchi and more... "Killer" Rigatoni Alla Borrelli, baked with spicy sausage and eggplant in a tomato meat sauce :)

Excellent Veal Palero, topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella and eggplant.

Dine Al Fresco
Dine al fresco to the sounds of a violinist, and watch the world go. Little sidewalk tables overlook Columbus Avenue — it's very European. Buon Appetito!

After your meal, walk around North Beach — it's always buzzing, especially after dark. It's one of our favorite areas in San Francisco.
