My joy at finding a cocktail bar locally which really does have the balance and elements for a great night out combined together was immeasurable. And the Monna Lisa Caffè IS IT. The best bar in Ostuni for cocktails by a mile and further. I would even go so far as to say it is in my top favourite bars of all time for cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere with service that is top class.
There is nothing to fault: the price is more than fair, the ambience is old jazz speakeasy, the service is great, and the cocktails themselves are excellent. Patience is required as the cocktails are not made in 30 seconds with some half baked mixing of a ‘couple of spirits and mixer’. Instead, each one is crafted as a mini taste sensation with balance of flavours; a real crafting. The wait is definitely worth it! And if you can’t see what you like on the menu, all you have to do is ask for something special to made up for you – and it will be done!
A first class night out in Ostuni, which will have you coming back for more before the end of your holiday in Puglia
