Visited on a Friday evening after the Theatre started. Busy but despite this service and welcome a definite cut above the norm. Paid just over £40 a head for three courses, coffee and drinks including a very nice bottle of Red. Good value for the quality of food served. All four of us were very happy with quality of the...

Booked a table here with the intention of having a romantic meal! Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant even though the area where our table was seemed a bit small. We pulled our table away from the wall a little to enable my husband to eat more comfortably. The restaurant was extremely hot. Another couple asked for the door to be... More

Average at best. Everything seemed to be swimming in oil. Disappointed having read previous reviews. Service was pretty good and the online booking was good.

Decided to have dinner avoiding theatre goers times as restaurant didn't appear very large from outside. We needn't have worried as there was plenty of accommodation. The menu was extensive and interesting but obviously Italian.The food was all fresh and we were especially impressed with the prawns and pasta being fresh and plentiful. It is not cheap but we felt... More

I reserved a table here for my girlfriend's birthday weekend and I honestly think I couldn't have made a better choice. The food was amazing, as was the service - except one of the waitresses who asked if we were ready to order, and when we said "not just yet, could we have another 5 minutes please..." she just walked...

We have been going to Sorrento for a few years now and always really enjoy the food. We were especially attracted by the fact that you could get a really good set menu on a Saturday evening at a really good price, which in Stratford is a rarity and we always noticed that the restaurant was full which obviously meant...
