My husband and I found this restaurant named on TripAdvisor while visiting Sorrento on April 8, 2014. Our kids were tired and wanted to stay in, so we ventured out alone to find it. The name on the exterior of the restaurant says "Minerva" - we walked past it on the first try!
Alessandro is very proud of his creations and is more than happy to make recommendations. It had been a long day and we were tired, but we had the mozzarella and prosciutto antipasto and then had a hard time eating our pasta dishes (I had the Chef's Choice). But they were delicious! Alessandro recommended a wine - the first one I didn't care for too much - so, he opened a different bottle that was much more pleasing. Not even a blink of an eye when he switched out the wine!
We had some really great conversation with Alessandro after we finished our meal. We planned to return for dinner with our kids the next night - the teenagers would have loved many of the items on the menu - but, we got hung up in downtown Sorrento and never made it back. Disappointment, because our dinner in central Sorrento was not even close to the quality Alessandro provides his customers! This is a no-brainer! Go there, eat well and enjoy the company of a great chef and charming man! Thank you, Alessandro, for a memorable evening of good food and rousing conversation!
