Mine Host does the cooking in the tiny kitchen and Mine Hostess is front of house. The best ingredients are used and the food is delicious and perfectly cooked. A small but superb wine list makes this a favourite of ours! Go there!

We were a party of 22 people. The service was great as we didn't pre-order, everything was together. Food was excellent, atmosphere just perfect. Would highly recommend.

Went here for dinner with friends from Dundee. It's a small Resturaunt, we were there on a Saturday night and people were turned away as all the tables were booked. So, advise to book in advance especially for the weekend. We had various starters, pizzas, pasta and a steak. Everyone loved their food and were well stuffed at the end... More

Caio Sorrento is a small family run business. It is intimate and very traditional, when dining here the atmosphere is so relaxed its like visiting a friends house for dinner! Service is first class as is their food and house red wine! Highly recommended!

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.
