My friend and I were staying in just around the corner from Eliseo. We initially planned to check out some of the other places in town, but after our 1st visit here, we were sold. The location is perfect, in an intimate piazza, yet perfect for people watching. Upon each visit we were very warmly greeted. There is wonderful outdoor seating, but the seating inside is very nice and cozy as well. It was also fascinating to watch the plethora of drinks other customers were ordering.
To say that the drink menu is extensive would be an understatement. You can find everything there. The owner's wife was absolutely fantastic. She chatted with us and the other customers, advised us in selecting wine and aperitifs based upon our likes and dislikes, and was extremely knowledgeable about each drink. One afternoon, a young couple with a baby came in and she was holding and playing with the baby, taking her around the shop, laughing, etc. It was so great just to watch that. It really revealed the true heart of the people in these towns - so loving, passionate and compassionate.
Although they do not had a food menu, little snacks were served with the drinks, which was perfect. I wish this place was closer to home, because I would love to end all of my night's there. Enoteca da Eliseo, thank you so much for making our trip ever so more memorable. I cannot wait to visit Monterosso again!
