We have frequently gone here for dinner when wanting good Italian food locally in a quiet atmosphere. We have always found the food to be ample, delicious and very well prepared. Early in the week you will find no wait but we often call for a reservation just to be sure. Food is cooked to order so it does take... More

MonAlyssa is a very nice BYOB neighborhood Italian restaurant/pizzeria. We visited on a quiet Wednesday night. No wait. We were greeted and seated right away. Our server, Grace, was very attentive throughout the meal without hovering. She knew all about the menu and how the dishes were prepared. The offerings were traditional Italian fare "with a twist". The chef showed... More

If you love Calamari and Eggplant the way I do, you may want to skip this restaurant. So many people eat there I figured it's got to be good. Not so! I could tell by looking at the Calamari that it came out of a frozen foods bag. Undeterred I dug in. In fact I finished it despite its low... More

Went there on a Friday night with two other couples and had a great experience. One of the couples comes here often and had recommended we give it a try. Alicia, our waitress, was spot on all night with making sure our meal was to our satisfaction (personally, I don't much care for the hovering waiters that continually ask if... More

We have been going to MonAlyssa's for many years. They have delicious Italian food and great service! It offers convenient home delivery, take out or dine in at their quaint restaurant. During the summer months you can enjoy dinner on their adorable patio. It's also a BYOB and it has reasonable prices. It is our favorite Italian restaurant offering flavorful... More

The service was very slow, the food was overpriced and nothing special, barely any air conditioning, the place is seriously in need of updating.

Our family of four came without reservation. The restaurant was fully booked so we were offered self-counter service. That was fine with us since we didn't really want to venture out and just want to have decent meal. We ordered our food. Salad and bread were given as complimentary which was nice. Then we wait at least 45 minutes to... More

Hello Maria, We Apologize for the 45 minute wait as our staff did say that there was a wait for a tables that night & we were busy with take-out & restaurant orders and our small kitchen tries to keep up with all orders.

MonAlyssa is a nice BYOB Italian restaurant and pizzaria on Bay Avenue. Our son has dined here often and suggested we visit. You walk thru the pizzaria to get to the restaurant area. The restaurant is always busy, which is always a good sign, but, even without a reservation, we were promptly seated. Warm bread was served, but it would... More
