 From my experience and from http://www.mono-project.com/ASP.NET

Our team did some evangelism for mono year ago and at that point it was 
possible to
start WebApplication projects and WebSite projects out-of-the-box on linux.
I can remember:

  * web site
  * web app
  * MVC2

Today I read that some people are running MVC3 and even MVC4. But not sure.

 From app-types:

  * Web Forms (no WebParts)
  * WebServices (SOAP)
  * WCF incomplete!

You'll need to get familiar with Apache, FastCGI and nginx http servers, 
but this is not a biggy.

And now potentially problematic part:
A lot ASP.net applications are not bare APS.net they use different 
frameworks, libs etc.
A lot are managed .net and can be run w/o hassle, but (there;s always 
but) there are some
that are not mono compliant. To see if they are mono-compliant run MoMA 
against them.

But this is moving target, because paople are porting libraries and even 
better MS is putting
libs in FOSS domain - see Entity Framework which is already on mono's 
github, but not yet
integrated and tested. I believe EF will be part of mono in version 2.12+

For more info see http://www.mono-project.com/FAQ:_ASP.NET

So, to make story short: there are no crucial diffs, but "the devil is 
in the details"
