Had a really good meal here, the penne pasta dish I had (chef's special) was really delicious, the sauce was amazing. Very friendly, good service and lovely ambience.

“Authentic Italian cuisine at its best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Visited on a Wednesday evening to celebrate my wife's birthday. Sorrento gives the air of an authentic Italian ristorante, with 2 intimate dining rooms and a menu that contains excellent fish and seafood dishes.
Both food quality and service were first class and all the dishes were extremely tasty. I chose selections from the table d'hote menu and my wife from the a la carte menu, and all were thoroughly enjoyed. My cozze a la napolitanta starter and my wife's Chicken breast with a brandy & mushroom sauce were particularly enjoyable.
Excellent value for money too!

“Really disappointing, won't be going back”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

We came here for a meal abut a month ago on a Saturday night. The service was awful, it took 20 minutes to get our drinks, another half an hour before our order was taken and our food took over an hour to appear! We both ordered the same pasta dish, they came out looking really different and when my boyfriend complained to the manager, she was completely patronising and rude, I will never go back this restaurant!
