Sorrento night 2

After a long day we took the hotel shuttle downtown to eat. We heard good reviews for Il Leone Rosso. Glad we went. We had the option of a la cartel or prix fixe. My parents opted for the fixed menu. I decided to try the house specials the first course was a gnocchi and the second was a locally caught fish of the day. I still have no idea what it was. I know it began with a P and it was a white flaky fish similar to cod. Done perfectly. They brought the full fish out first (in case I forgot it was fresh,) then after it was cooked brought it back out (to show it was the same fresh fish,) then brought it out gutted and plated.

House desserts (cannoli and tiramisu) come with the fixed menu. The restaurant also brought out a round of limoncello on the house while we were waiting on the check.

… Then they brought out a second round of dark chocolate liqueur. We’re still not sure what was in it, but it put Godiva to shame.
