My wife and I had dinner last Friday and we were surprised by the quality of the food and its genuine ingredients. We had the raw fish appetizers, the home made spaghetti, paccheri with cod fish and I had a baked fish. We also had the cheese cake which was wonderful. I truly recommend it. The restaurant has a free... More

Great little restaurant, the food was fantastic and the service sensational. If you are looking for pizza go down the tourist area, if you want great food then this is the place to go. Our waiter Mariano was the best, had us laughing all night. People that are serious about good food will love the place.

We were recommended to come here by our apartment owner and we were a little sceptical due to the mixed reviews. I'm so glad we decided to dine here with my family it was amazing and the staff were both attentive and humorous throughout the evening- its tucked away in sorrento and you wouldnt find it yourself! We were brought... More

This restaurant was recommended by the lady who owned the apartment we rented, she kindly booked the table for my family. I told her it was for a special occasion as it was my mothers 50th birthday. The restaurant offers a shuttle bus service which will pick you up and drop you home free of charge, you most definitely would... More

Tucked away in the hills, this restaurant is a must on your next trip. Beautiful Italian scenery, superb staff and incredible Italian food. Extensive and affordable wine list combined with their homemade Limoncello made every bit of the experience truly unique. A top highlight of our trip!

You won't find Donna Sofia on your own. It's tucked away in the hills above Sorrento, and you'll need a driver in a very small car to transport you through the narrow lanes that lead to the restaurant. Once there, you'll enjoy a fine wine list, fresh local food and a family atmosphere featuring Sophia Loren mementos and a romantic... More

Our hotel arranged for the restaurant's shuttle to pick us up & return us to the hotel for dinner our first night in Sorrento (this is not an additional fee from the restaurant). I'm not sure if this is available for every hotel, but as ours was a little out of the way & we didn't have a car, it... More

First I will say that the food is ok and the ambiance is interesting if you'd like vintage movie and publicity stills of Sofia Loren. But once here you are captive. It is a very long way from the busy touristy area, and DO NOT drive your own vehicle, you will scrape it in the narrow alleyways to reach this... More
