We ate lunch here on July 11th and had a very delicious meal. We were picked up in town by a restaurant employee. The drive to the restaurant is crazy because the street is so narrow. To make a turn at one point the driver had to stop and back up in order to make it. When we arrived we... More

We were on a tour with smartcruisetours.com. Our driver suggested this restaurant because he said the food was great and the prices were good as well. We were a van of 8 people. Although we all met that day we all shared a table and dined together. The bread and olive oil was soooo good I knew the meal had... More

Fantastic atmosphere and lovely food. Eating outside with a bamboo roof for cover, the heavens opened and we had a fantastic thunder storm. Staff took it in their stride and so did all the customers, following their lead. Some of us sat it out, literally,others moved indoors - depending on whether you were near a leaking bit of the roof!... More

Staff was very friendly and made us feel comfortable. Food was quite average; caprese mozzarella dry and tomatoes not quite ripe, too heavy on the baked fish topping. All up, would not go back.

We found this restaurant by chance and decided to give it a try. We were not sorry. As soon as we entered we were greeted by the friendly staff and seated outside. The setting was delightful. We were offered the menu, then the head waiter told us the specials of the day. There were so many I had to ask... More

We were very disappointed with this restaurant the house wine was fizzy and very poor. My husband ordered the veal shnitzel and nearly choked on the baking parchment underneath, he was told they always serve it this way to drain off the oil. Never heard of this we sent it back and refused to pay. Very unimpressed we would not... More

Up in the hills of Sorrento is this modest restaurant with delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts. The service was great and the limoncello is made there!

This place was absolutely fantastic! The food was so fresh and some produce grown right on the property and/or locally. The owner/chef, Mario, is great. They can provide kid portions. The food was really really good and the price was just right- not overly-hiked up tourist prices! Beautiful, outdoor ambience, too! Beautiful decor and pics of Sofia Loren, but of... More

If you are visiting Sorrento take a trip to The Donna Sofia Restaurant. As it is high up in Sorrento the restaurant will send transport to collect you from your hotel. Just ask the hotel to telephone the restaurant to arrange the car. You won't regret your decision. We have been going there for the past 9 years. The food... More
