Tried this restaurant on 2 independent recommendations and I was not disappointed. Lovely little Italian restaurant run by a genuine Italian family. The food was some of the best Italian food I have had in a very long time. I opted for some spaghetti and it had a beautiful balance of flavours with just the right ratio of pasta to... More

I ordered off the menu - tagliatelle alio olio with chili- and it was superb. The garlic bread was good but a bit crispy. The wine was tasty for house wine and the limoncello excellent.The only down side was that she shut up shop at 9.15pm when my friends and I were still catching up after a few years' absence.

I have been going with my husband for over 17 years. Can truly say we've never had anything wrong or had to complain about anything. This restaurant is owned by a lovely couple and they would do anything to accommodate you. It's a cute, intimate restaurant. Their lasagna dish is by far the people's favourite. I would say my favourite... More

This restaurant has an authentic feel and the choice of pasta was great (also liked the fact that all the pasta dishes were the same price). Tasty breadsticks on the table and the pasta came piping hot and plenty of it. The tiramisu dessert was a large portion but it was the tasty pasta, the atmosphere and the excellent service... More

My family had a meal at ciao sorrentos using a discount voucher bought on line. Restaurant were very accommodating as had left it to last minute to book. Food was enjoyed by all - even fussy son who loved the tomato pasta sauce. Thank you

Dundee has lots of restaurants to choose from however none come close to value, quality and authenticity when dealing with Italian cuisine. After several dining experiences with my fiancee we can confirm that our favourite by some distance is definitely this restaurant. We are always made to feel very welcome, the staff are very friendly, polite and always within distance... More

We booked Ciao Sorrento for 5pm on a Thursday evening as we had an event to attend that night in Dundee. Not knowing the city we took the recommendations of Trip Advisor due to the location. It was reassuringly busy for the time of day and food was served quickly and efficiently. Wouldn't rave that it was the best Italian... More

this restaurant has an authentic Italian Trattoria feel...the food...the staff, the atmosphere. We called in on Thursday night after arriving home from holiday knowing we had no food in the house....great decision!! Delicious starters ( huge prawns) and tasty bruschetta. Grilled trout and almonds, creamy chicken pasta and definitely the best spaghetti bolognaise in Dundee. This restaurant has been open... More
