Mona Pizza is a restaurant found in Diamond City, and is the rival of Pizza Dinosaur. Mona works here part-time under the manager Joe, who also owned her past place of employment, the Gelateria. Mona Pizza appears in the WarioWare series, debuting in WarioWare: Twisted!, and sells pizza, the only known variety of which is the Mona Special. Mona Pizza's name and logo are both based on the famous Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo da Vinci.

Mona's level in WarioWare: Twisted! features a commercial for Mona Pizza, complete with a long advertising jingle sung predominantly by Sal Out. The song reappears in later games in the WarioWare series as well as the Super Smash Bros. series as an arrangement.

Mona Pizza also appears in Mona's level in WarioWare: Touched!, where she is seen rehearsing a musical performance with her band, consisting of herself, Art and Deco.

While the restaurant itself does not appear in WarioWare: Get It Together!, the description for the Pizza Prezzy conjectures if it is from Mona Pizza.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Mona Pizza logo (the picture depicting Mona as a spoof of Mona Lisa) is not present in the Japanese version of WarioWare: Twisted! and did not appear until the Japanese release of WarioWare: Touched! It was presumably added to the English version of Twisted! due to the later release and since Touched! was released prior to Twisted! outside of Japan.
  • The Mona Pizza delivery box's design is completely different in the Japanese version of WarioWare: Twisted! The characters on the box are the Pork Loins, the band from the Garage Rock microgame from WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! and Mona's intro in WarioWare: Touched!
