This is a great restaurant using the best ingredients , beautifully cooked. The charcuterie is superb and the Specials delicious. The lobster ravioli is divine! Short but excellent wine list and great service. Go there!

I was introduced to this restaurant by my family more than 10 years ago and will continue to visit as often as I can. I can strongly recommend the Pasta al Forno - 'it's a must!' We love Ciao so much; we had our families meet there for dinner the night before our wedding! Tommaso and Joanna are so very... More

I visit this restaurant regularly as I spend a lot of time at the nearby mal maison hotel when I'm on business in Dundee and I'm never left dissapointed. On my most recent visit I ordered the calamari starter and asked the chef tomasso to create me a pizza of his choice as I tended to order the quattro staggioni... More

The food was as I was hoping for, simple but tasty. I had a pepperoni pizza as my main and I have to be honest it didn't look great, but it... More

Our last visit was just over a week ago, and just this lovely little restaurant is a haven at the end of a long day's work. Gracie000 - we cannot imagine how you... More

My husband and I eat at Ciao Sorrento regularly and have done for a number of years. I have never been disappointed. Each meal I have had has been delicious and I certainly don't agree with Gracie000 and her views on the pizza. Having just had one of Thomasso's pizzas tonight, I can say that they are delicious. The base... More

We visited last night and really enjoyed our meal. I had the Campagnolo pizza and my friend had vegetarian risotto. Would definitely recommend and will be returning in the near future.
