Mona Lisa Bakery & Restaurant

Mona Lisa has been making handmade breads, cookies, cakes and pastries for over three generations; the traditional Italian breads like the prosciutto-laced “lard” bread are baked in a coal-fired oven. Owned by Steven Camastra, Mona Lisa has everything from their chocolate-covered cannoli (a sumptuous twist on the traditional cannoli — they’re hand-dipped in dark chocolate from Switzerland) to their Amaretto cookies (made with an imported almond paste and delicate Amaretto liqueur). Their enormous paninis come with over 30 combinations of fillings, such as grilled chicken with fontina cheese and mushrooms; or prosciutto, mozzarella and roasted peppers. There are also European-style thin crust pizzas, brick oven baked with a variety of cheeses and toppings. The interior of Mona Lisa, with its marble-top tables, full bar, gelatos and sorbets will make you think you’re in a cafe in Rome. Mona Lisa even makes their own wedding cakes, and they ship their baked goods nationwide. They are open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
