The Review

Reviewed by: Jennifer Johnson

Formerly Opa Greek Cuisine, Mona Pizza and Pasta on Sixth Avenue quietly opened last week. The interior looks and feels much the same. Cozy fireplace, big sunny windows and comfy deep booths all remain. As for the menu, going from Greek to Italian American means pasta; 16 belly busters are offered now at Mona. For noodles, they offer tortellini, spaghetti, manicotti, fettuccine, lasagna, ravioli, or cannelloni.  Classic Italian potato dumplings, gnocchi, come straight up with marinara or rose sauce, or served with salty delicious prosciutto and fresh earthy basil with creamy tangy gorgonzola sauce.

There are low-carb options, too. Mona's eight salads are: spinach, Greek, Caesar, Cobb, shrimp, salmon, crispy chicken and mixed green.

Sadly there isn't one fresh vegetable appetizer listed, but barbeque ribs sound interesting - what will Italian ribs taste like?

The rest of the menu consists of stuffed and baked and golden calzones ($9.50), hot sandwiches ($9.25), traditional (pepperoni) and specialty pizzas (grilled chicken, prosciutto, pine nuts, goat cheese) and baklava, tiramisu and the like for dessert ($4.25). Pizza prices average $16.95. Alcohol isn't available; Delivery is.  - Jennifer Johnson

Deliver is much faster than I expected (seeing how it is really food).
Pizzas and calzones are both wonderful.
Salads and buffalo wings are great too.
The sauces and dressings all taste like they are made from scratch.
I couldn't be happier with the food.
I'm so happy we finally have a place like this in Tacoma.
Delivery to my house is unheard of, except Dominoes.
I'm so glad I can have real food delivered now.
Plus the prices are not bad at all.

When I was there I tried the veggie lasagne, the pizza, and the breadsticks. The lasagne tasted a touch better than frozen, meaning okay, but definitely not fantastic. The breadsticks were very lightly seasoned and the bread they were made of was not especially good to make up for the lack of seasonings. The pizza crust reminded of me of Katie Down's, which reminds me of Pizza Hut. Again, okay, but definitely not great.

I haven't tried the delivery, which I may well do because it looks cheaper than Garlic Jim's, my normal pizza delivery standby. This said, there are many better quality restaurants to choose from in the area in the same price range for dining in, so I don't think I'll be back.
