Found a new Italian place in Tucson

I just went over to a little restaurant/deli place that opened a couple of weeks ago on the east side, in the same strip mall as the Gaslight Theatre. It's called Mona Lisa, and my first time at the place was quite the tasty one! Everything had a very authentic feel to it- noteworthy things I had were the semolina rolls the waitress brought out to munch on (it's the kind of thing addictions are made of), monstrous baked ziti, garlic bread made with fresh garlic (I forgot what real garlic on garlic bread tastes like... WOW), and real homemade tiramisu. I'll likely be going back again to see how other things are... just gotta make sure everything is consistent ya know :o)
