Mario and his staff made our first dinner so memorable we returned two nights later for an encore which was even more enjoyable. Donna Sophia was able to serve 25 travel weary guests with very little notice. Mario suggested an array of appetizers and entrees that were beautiful and yummy. Four couples unanimously decided to go back to Donna Sophia's... More

It was a last night in Sorrento and we were looking for an AMAZING meal to close out our trip. The front desk staff at our hotel recommended Donna Sofia. They offered door to door shuttle service and we were immediately sold! The ride there was quite a experience. I would equate it to an Italian version of space mountain... More

Our receptionist at our hotel recommended this restaurant and we then recommended it to any we met in Sorrento! Beautiful spot, out of the main square. The hotel will pick you up and drop you off, as well. Fabulous customer service and wait staff.....very friendly! Food was delicious! The best gnocchi we've ever had was at Donna Sofia!

We were recommended this place by our tour guide in Pompeii (Vittoria) and our concierge was also a fan. After picking us up and taking us up above Sorrento (through the very skinny laneways) we arrived at Donna Sofia. From the beginning, Mario and his staff were very friendly and explained the dishes we were interested in. We had an... More

We came here to Sorrento on our honeymoon from New York. And we were highly recommended to Donna Sofia from an exceptional restaurant where we live called Bocellis. We 100% felt right at home. The food and staff were exceptional! The staff was able to give us the perfect recommendations to satisfy our appetites. The wine selection was excellent, and... More

The first stop in Sorrento was one of best meals on the trip. The food is fresh and well presented. The staff is knowledgeable and make you feel at home. It is an adventurous ride to get there but well worth it. They pick you up in Sorrento and bring you back.

Loved the huge mixed starter we shared then went straight to the puds - apple dumpling - gorgeous and fresh strawerries. Not cheap but not expensive. AND they will collect you in Sorrento and drive you down the very narrow lanes to get there - AND take you back. Well worth a visit.

I'm not sure where many of the other reviewers have been, but maybe I went to a different place accidentally, or just got a bad night? Mario was here, but said two words to us (barely) while scrambling from table to table. The atmosphere was nice, and the back covered patio was very quaint. Our food was fairly good. The... More

From the adventurous ride up to the restaurant to the owner, Mario meeting you at the door, this is the beginning of a fantastic dining experience. Mario shares the evening's specials, makes suggestions, and then takes your order. The wait staff is very attentive and oh so charming!! The food is delicious. We had the grilled shrimp on a lemon...
