Right in the heart of Sorrento’s ‘Drains opposite a very pretty church we found this place. It’s the Monnalisa Ristorante and is a great place for people watching while you eat.
This has to be one of the best places to get a pizza in Sorrento. We ate there a couple of times and I really enjoyed the pizza picante, which is made with pepperoni and four kinds of cheese, including pungent Gorgonzola and a ball of fresh buffalo Mozzarella . Fabulous with a glass of chilled Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio white.
Mind you I was surprised that I had much room left after the bruschette we had for our starters. The tomato bruschetta was really fresh and quite delicious, however
the Neapolitan bruschetta, with ham, basil and cheese, was really gorgeous and particularly filling.
Even the nibbles, that are customarily served with drinks in Italy, arrived in style on a delicate little stand with a pair of tongs.
The Monnalisa has a well recommended ice cream parlor, but we were always too full after the main course to stuff anything else down.
So what’s the damage? Bruschette and pizza or pasta for four with wine, water and coffee between €90 to €100.
