We've eaten at Ciao Sorrento a few times over the last few years and have enjoyed our food on each occasion. It's not the cheapest for what you get, but the food's lovely and the restaurant itself is very authentic and in no way pretentious. We'll definitely continue to return.

lovely little authentic Italian in the centre of Dundee. Friendly and welcoming staff, nice atmosphere and food cooked to absolute perfection. The food is without doubt 5 star but the only thing that stops me giving an overall 5 stars was that the toilet is really in need of a makeover!

Had heard great things about this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. I had mussels in tomato sauce for starter and they were lovely large juicy mussels. The pasta course was delicious also. Friendly authentic staff made the night.

Popped in on a Friday night with no booking but we got a table no problem. Staff were very friendly. Food was tasty and plentiful. Atmosphere wasn't what I expected, I thought it would have been more like a restaurant, but, it was more like a night time cafe. Good value for money.

We went for an impromptu dinner, so had no reservations, but they had no problems seating us. The food was wonderful with large portions, and the service was very good. I'm sure we will eat here again.

We attended he for the first time on a Tuesday night. No mussels on a Tuesday I was told? Starter certainly wasn't what it should have been and my pasta was well baked to the dish!!!! Off putting for us
