The food was not great (the table's consensus). The staff is so concerned with filling tables that they tend to neglect you. Forgot parts of order, but eventually got everything. It is a great spot for people watching though.

At first glance you think na, but we gave it a go, and glad we did, the food was amazing, staff were great, reasonably priced, and at the end of each meal they give you a little Gelato nice touch.

Situated in the heart of Sorrento, this on-street restaurant provides good coffee, delicious cakes (try the cheesecake) and great ice-cream (try the strawberry). Service is excellent and friendly. A great place to relax mid-morning.

Stopped here for morning coffee. The staff were very good and very helpful helping me to get on to the wi fi. The coffee was one of the best I've tasted. The cafe was like a tranquil oasis in the hustle and bustle of the shoppers. Will call again when in Sorrento.

We walked in around 18h30 and got a table right away. Mussels were fantastic, so was dessert, Grilled lamb was tasty but a bit too chewy.

It's hard to miss this restaurant if your in Sorrento and its worth a visit for a quick lunch. We had fried calamari, parmigiana melanzana, and selection of toasted sandwiches. Friendly and chatty staff with a mini ice cream cone on paying the bill.

Stopped here for dinner. Shared the eggplant pasta dish, it was very good. The Caperiese salad was a generous portion, didn't like that they didn't dress the salad for you. Mozzarella was a little tough. The bread is excellent. It's hard to believe the chocolate gelato was actually too chocolately. I didn't think that was possible.

It was the quirky ice cream cone seats that caught our attention as we strolled passed one morning. On our way back from exploring the town we decided to stop for an ice cream. Nice, soft, flavourful ice cream in lots of tempting flavours.

We stopped at Monnalisa for morning coffee and late for a late lunch. Coffee + fresh orange juice 8 euros, no cover charge or service charge & included nibbles. Service and staff very good, relaxed atmosphere in the center of Sorrento.

Thank stix43
