First class Italian food with first class service

This small family run Italian Resturant is a gem if you enjoy great Italian food served in a most efficient and friendly way. Can also recommend their house wine both red and white. We have visited on many occasions and never been disappointed.

This place was fully booked last time we tried to visit but we managed to get a table on Friday night. When we arrived, the place was almost full and there was a good bustling atmosphere. We were served by an Italian which is always a good sign. All adult starters were very good, those being the mushrooms (1 with... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a stranger when I mentioned that we were going to be in Dundee. I knew it was probably going to be good when I called to make a reservation and found myself speaking to an Italian which a heavy accent. He turned out to be the chef (with 40 years of experience in... More

I am not a big pasta fan and rarely eat it at home however the fresh home made style pasta al forno is out of this world! I rarely need a menu plumping for this dish with a garlic and cheese bread washed down with a few Peroni's!

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! This would never stop me revisiting though purely for... More
