A classic tourist trap through and through. Situated in a small square in the middle of the alleys filled with traditional touristy shopp. €10 for a pizza and a small beer. The pizza was ok and the beer was really small. Probably would have had a pizza and a large beer for a lower price if we hadn't taken the... More

We would not normally choose this type of eaterie as it's in the middle of a busy square in Sorrento's 'old lanes' but we spotted a dish (mixed salamis etc) which looked attractive so we thought we'd give it a go. We enjoyed it so much we returned for lunch on our final day! The service was attentive and the... More

This place set right in the middle of the Sorrento alleys has various ways to entice you - an outside facing gelateria, an inside cafe (decorated all purple and white!) full of cakes and pastries, and outside there is an open and also an overhead covered area to sit and eat. They also have a full food menu for lunch... More

Had a great experience tasting fine italian ice cream! The waiters were attentive although it was jam packed (Goes to show how good they are I guess) the dessert choices were awesome! Felt like a kid in a candy shop lol! Will definitely visit again in future! :)

We were drawn into the bakery/gelateria in the afternoon by the beautiful desserts. The pastries and gelato were delectable! We went back for dinner and were treated to another truly special experience. Our meal was delicious and the service was exceptional. I unconditionally recommend Monnalisa for a terrific lunch or dinner that will offer an artistic presentation without completely bust... More

We saw this when walking through the backstreets of sorrento, and are we ever glad we did! We were greeted politely, offered any table, seated and presented menus. After a few minutes our drinks order was taken, which were promptly brought. After a further few minutes our order of food was taken. We ordered starters and Mains, our pasta was... More

We went here twice; the first time we shared the seafood bruschetta platter, which arrived on a lazy susan. These weren't the usual appetizer bruschetta; they were sumptuous and artistic open faced sandwiches, mussels, smoked salmon, safari, etc. Although listed as an appetizer the platter was big enough to be lunch for two. Other diners seemed just as happy with... More

Visited here one lunchtime but were cautious as it looked like a tourist trip. We were pleasantly surprised! Food was excellent - their pizzas are lovely. Nice touch at the end of the meal with a free mini ice cream from their shop! Service was excellent, such friendly staff. Good prices too!

We visited numerous times over our holiday and enjoyed them all. The lunch, drinks and desserts were lovely. Located in a busy square we were able to enjoy the atmosphere whilst sitting and relaxing. The staff were all very friendly.

We ate here one night out of desperation as couldn't get a table anywhere else. Another bar had a guy playing an electric organ and singing some awful tunes. Our table was situated right on the end on the lane so we had the world and his wife walking past us. The food was poor and my large beer was... More
