Mon Alyssa Restaurant and Pizzeria has been owned and operated by the Alvarez family for four years. Chef/Owner Santos Alvarez, the patriarch of the Alvarez family, has been cooking professionally for more than thirty years. Born and raised in Los Reyes, Michoacán, Mexico, Santos’ first instructor in the culinary arts was his father who at one time was a sous chef in Chicago. The restaurant, which offers nightly dinner specials that are served in a casual atmosphere, is known for Chef Santos’ white Pasta E Faggioli. Pizzas, subs, and wraps are available as well as pasta, chicken, veal, seafood, steak, and lamb. Every entrée is cooked to order and dietary restrictions are catered to. On and off premises catering is also available as well as take out and free local delivery. Patrons enjoy the live music offered on the weekends. We pride ourselves on using only the freshest ingredients, offering exceptional food at moderate prices and giving impeccable service.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We had clams oreganata, artichoke francese and veal saltimbocca. Everything was excellent and we enjoyed one of the last few nights of the summer.

    Dinner was very good Wait staff excellent. Only complaint was size of dining table. It was so small that plates and glasses were very difficult to fit. Had to stack things which was rather inconvenient.

    First time to this lovely restaurant. Sitting outside next to the street was the only thing not perfect about the experience. Make your reservation well in advance and sit inside or further from the street. The food and service was excellent. We will be back regularly even though it’s a drive. Very pleased!

    Exceptional food and service. Sat under the tent outside with my wife, ambiance outside was perfect,well put together. Service was on point. Waitress was experienced and knowledgeable about the menu. Food was perfect and reasonably priced. Food was better than homemade. Went inside to use the restroom and saw the main dining room, I would have been disappointed if we sat inside. Very dirty as well as the restroom. I suggested that my wife should wait till we got back to the hotel for her to go.

    Too many diners and too few wait staff made for a lengthy dinner. Our party of 4 spent over 2.5 hours at the restaurant. Our waitress was doing the best that she could under the circumstances and I do not blame her. I've dined here before and have had great food and service and I will return.

    What a great local gem. We went for the first time this evening and had a fabulous meal. My girlfriend is gluten-free and they were able to accommodate her with so many choices. Our waiter Tyler was excellent in recommending dishes for us. He was assisted by another young lady named Adelade who was extremely attentive and also helped us out. The food was very very good at a reasonable price. We will definitely be visiting again
