“Brilliant restaurant! would reccomend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Walked past this restaurant many times in Stroud and finally decided to go in with me and my family. It is an excellent restaurant for the family, visiting solo, with your partner or just a casual night out. All the staff are friendly and helpful. the food is very authentic and served in good time. It also has very reasonable prices for what you get.

“Real Italian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

This is one of my most favourite restaurants. The first time I went here was only ten days after coming back from Italy staying with my god mother on Capri being spoiled with the most delicious Italian food. I went into the first place I found in Stroud having just moved there, not expecting very much. Wow, what a surprise Sorrento's was - it was like being back in Italy, wonderful, wonderful, food and great service. The hardest bit is choosing what you want to eat as the specials get your mouth watering just reading them, and everything, especially the pasta is sublime. Since then we've booked family nights here, had quick lunches and romantic meals, and even a takeaway as the pizza is awesome, my friend calls it 'Italian Mouthgasms,' and it is my first choice when to comes to good food on my doorstep and a place to take friends and family for treats and celebrations.

“Favourite Place to Eat out!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

My first experience of Sorrento's was on valentines night when I forgot to book a table for me and my girlfriend and the waiter managed to squeeze us in, and from then on this has been mine and my girlfriends favourite place to eat out. The food has always been incredible, served in good time and always cooked to perfection even on peak times with very affordable prices. The staff are always friendly and helpful and are never too interfering whilst you are having your meal. It is a perfect place for any celebrations or quiet meals. There specials board offers a great alternative to the menu, which itself is brilliant with a great selection of vintage Italian starters, pastas, pizzas and deserts, not to mention the best steak I have ever tasted. The music played in the background sets the scene of the restaurant and there is a really friendly environment. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good meal out, either as a family, couple or friends. It's brilliant.

“Birthday treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Looked at this restaurant many times during the day but was never open, tried it on my birthday before going out for the evening. Staff were all family & very helpful, food was good as was the service. Probably pasta dishes were oversized- too much for me anyway, sometimes less is more.

“Part of these people's d.n.a”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Are you tired of dining out in restaurants run by british show offs keen to climb up the social ladder of food snobery? With their gap year inspired food fusion, vague mockney market stall connections and sub-urban despising pheasant shoot knoledge? How ever clever these places are at cookery they would not dare lower themselves to make ordinary people feel welcome and special. Here at Sorrento they do just that, every time you go there they make you feel welcome and special. Their skill at providing good Italian restaurant food is part of these people's d.n.a. it's not a reaction to generations of crap cooking it goes back to the times of ancient Greece.The place is always full of dressed up people and the cooks and front of house jostle and wildly gesticulate together...just like the restaurants you dreamed about as a child.
