We ate (unreserved) here about 7.3o on 19th June. Plenty of room, so my manservant and I were able to have a table for four, though it did fill up soon. Anyway I started with Insalata Caprese, very, very fresh and cool, and simply delicious. Jeeves had the traditional onion soup which he said was "Exquisite". I then had the... More

Initially I was reminded of Italian restaurants of the 70's and 80's when I entered this restaurant. Rather dated pictures of Italy lined the walls and slightly corny Italian music was playing, and the pleasant waitress was Polish! However, do not be deterred by this! There are the usual antipastos, pastas etc and a good selection of wines and drinks.... More

I have visited this restaurant on so many occasions to celebrate occasions, with work colleagues, my husband and with my closest friends....absolutely love it. Very intimate, can see your food cooked in front of you and I am always allowed to have my pasta arribiata spiced up a little to suit. One of the few places I will indulge in... More

Ciao Sorrento was recommended to me by a friend as a great place to eat! I went along with some friends one Friday night and I loved it! The place is nice and intimate, has a holiday feel! You can see the chefs cooking in the kitchen and the food is fantastic!!

Don't think the service or food is what it once was in here. Disappointed with our greeting on arrival and the food was average. Have eaten here a few years ago and it seemed so much better then.

We added some starters and a side and thoroughly enjoyed all the food, and the wine. Friendly and efficient service too. Wont... More

Found this restaurant while wandering through Dundee one day. It looks like a really authentic Italian and I suppose it is. I have to give it a really poor review because of the rude staff. I asked the waiter if he would recommend a dish I was interested in and he shrugged his shoulders...... No atmosphere at all.... Very disappointing

From the amazing authentic food to the lovely warming atmosphere Joanna and her husband create Ciao Sorrento is definitely my favourite! The lasagne especially my sister and I adore, but you can't lose with anything on their varied menu. The pollo sorrento is also amazing for a chicken dish and all the pizzas are so nice and fresh! Would recommend... More
