Our tour guide recommended Donna Sofia for lunch after a visit to Pompei. It was perfect! Fantastic food, great friendly service, quirky decor. Loved it and will be back!

What a fantastic, authentic restaurant! We asked our tour guide ( private tour for ten people) where the best local restaurant would be for lunch. Guido took us to this hidden treasure as it is his favourite spot to take his girlfriend. Just driving to the restaurant was an amazing experience through a winding narrow olive tree lined uphill road.... More

Due to its location, this restaurant offers complimentary shuttle to and from the restaurant. I would highly recommend taking advantage of this because the streets of Sorrento can be confusing and our drive took many tiny alleyways to get us to and from the restaurant. Once on site, the food and service was delicious! They had a great wine selection... More

Long overdue review. Luckily we were able to find this quaint lovely restaurant in Sorrento. First we were picked up by the restaurant in the square. The owner, Mario is personable, gives personal attention and fiercely dedicated. Mario's warm disposition was so welcoming , we went twice during the trip. If you are searching for stuffed zucchini flowers, this is... More

The food was some of the best we had while touring Italy. Each entree was marvelous in its own right and the desserts were simply remarkable. Mario and Lena were extremely warm and welcoming. The restaurant itself is very beautiful as well. Highest recommendations.

Service was excellent, food was really Italian. Very friendly people. Cost was high but average for the area. Lots of pictures of Sophia Loren. You might get lucky enough to see her there.

We arrived to the restaurant during noon after a visit to Pompei. Our local guide recommended this place and she was right. After spending almost a week in Italy I can say it's the best italien meal I had in the last year. The restaurant is located on the hill above the center of Sorrento. We walked from the train...

When visiting Sorrento you must visit Ristorante Donna Sofia. It's high on a hill and is a traditional family restaurant with many pictures of the beautiful Sofia Loren. Pretty cool! My family was lucky to spend Christmas dinner at this excellent restaurant. We made a reservation and we're told that a driver would meet us at our hotel. He was... More
