A restaurant on the street in one of the Piazzas in Sorrento, so you can watch the world go by. Great food, pleasant and helpful staff and fabulous desserts to. Just be aware that a Grande beer is one litre - lovely stuff but might spoil your appetite. The only problem when we were there was the world cup was... More

We had lunch here and were very disappointed. Maybe we got spoiled in Rome, but this place seemed very touristy. Pizza tasted like frozen crust with toppings and tomato sauce on pasta tasted like it was from a can. We stopped back later just to get cappuccino because it was the only place we found in the area with cappuccino... More

We ate at this restaurant a number of times. The staff were unfailingly polite and friendly whether you were there for a lunchtime snack, dinner or simply a relaxing drink. Whatever the reason for our visit, each time we were presented with a miniature cornet of the ice cream made on the premises. Each flavour (we were never given the... More

This has to be one of my favourite places to eat in Sorrento. The staff are lovely, Sabrina is such an asset, I always get a warm welcome from her and the rest of the staff. There is plenty of choice on the menu with really large portions. Good spot for people watching and they don't rush you out when... More

I had dinner at Monnalisa and found the food to be very good. They had a special food & drink offer that was good value but since I wasn't after pizza, I opted for the pasta (as a main dish rather than first course), which was very good. The menu is in Italian and English and vegetarian or gluten-free dishes... More

Had lunch here twice, excellent service, fabulous food, we felt the prices were very reasonable, especially for Italy. Bruschetta is amazing, the chillie and tomato penne pasta will blow your head off (just the way I like it) Pizza is the real thing, mussels were fresh and tasty . Be warned, they give you a wee mini ice cream when... More

Someone recommended us to go to Monnalisa. We decided to try it and we were charmed! If you go through Sorrento it is right across from the SEDIL DOMINOVA, a gorgeous site from the glorious times of Sorrento, you cannot miss it. The menu is quite attractive as it shows each dish and makes your mouth water...even before you order.... More

Had 2 diff seafood salads, both excellent. Dessert was shared, but supplemented w/gelato, cookies, candy/chocolate. Cheery & energetic waitstaff were what beckoned us in & charmed/teased us through a great meal. Whole restaurant seemed united in their efforts to help us enjoy the experience & the company.
