After being recommended to eat here from a friend we decided to have a romantic night at this over priced and dated establishment. To begin with, we were disappointed at the service given to us from one of the waitresses, who was unwilling to meet our dietary requests. We then received our melon and prawn starter - AWFUL, followed by... More

Visit here on occasion and it is always amazing. From the food to the service. I wandered in on Tuesday before heading out for the night and even though they were very busy (good to see), we were seated without booking☺️. The manager always recognizes myself and asks how my dad is even though we've only been in here around... More

Whether you love pizza, pasta, seafood or steak Ciao Sorrento get it right every time. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food and value for... More

Having read the positive reviews, I was looking forward to eating here, but it didn't come up to my expectations. There wasn't anything wrong with the food ( apart from the lack of garlic in the garlic bread), but I didn't leave thinking that I must recommend this place to others. I've had better.
