We stopped here for a glass of wine during our stay in Monterosso, It was late April, and Eliseo and Maria were both in the house. We started with a glass of wine, and Eliseo listened to our preferences and provided an exceptional glass of wine - a white for my wife and a red for me... and they both exactly matched our respective favorite styles. I noticed the extensive Grappa selection, to which Eliseo remarked he had over 100 different varieties. I told him that was nice, but I was sure he didn't have one my wife would enjoy. He immediately said "Oh yes I do" and promptly poured a strawberry grappa. Now, I don't like sweets, but this grappa tasted like garden fresh strawberries, and my life loved it. Being huge fans of Limoncello, we then ordered a glass of Eliseo's house-made Limoncino Ligure, and again we were both stunned with the fresh flavors. We purchased a bottle of the Limoncino to bring back, and are still enjoying it several months later. We have yet to find an Amalfi Limoncello that is as good. I should mention that we were not inebriated and thus easily impressed - the personal attention and passion shown for their business is matched by the broad selection and quality of offerings. This is one of my favorite wine bars in the world, and my only regret is that it is not here in California so I can visit frequently. As a side note, the appetizers were delicious as well - nuts, olives of several varieties and capers. Enoteca da Eliseo is a gem to be experienced and enjoyed.
