Mono 3 has good support, but it's called "beta" still.  Don't let that scare you.  It's good enough.

The current "stable" release 2.10.x, I hear, doesn't have good ASP / MVC support.  (I never used it, I don't know personally.)

Both mono/.Net and/or django are good solutions.  I think your deciding factor is mostly this...  Do you already have an application written in django?  If so, then a 1-week training course will be good enough to get any python developer up to speed with django.

In my gut feel, django is a bit more rapid to develop on, but mono/.Net have higher end performance when your product is finished.  These differences are not amazingly dramatic.
