Okay, so you caught last night's post. Wild paint job huh? Well, walk about two or three blocks from there and this is what you'll see. Sorrento Ristorante Italiano. My wife and I ran across this place completely by accident one evening last summer. It was very warm out and we had our dogs with us. No problemo! They had tables set up outside. Hook the leashes under the table legs and reach for the menu. The food was unbelievable. Not like your typical Americanized Italian food either, this was the real deal. The owner Franco, yep he's the real deal too. Evidently he's from Sorrento, thus the name and the beautiful mural. He looks like a character right out of a movie. Out he strolls with a bottle of wine in one hand and glasses in the other. What a charmer too. He heads straight for the ladies and proceeds to "turn on the smooth." Over all a very good experience and one more colorful Olympia business.
