The Hilton recommended this restaurant to us so we did some reviewing and decided to book. The fact that they will collect and drop you back at the hotel is a great bonus considering taxi prices in Sorrento. The drive from our hotel to the restaurant eventually turned into really narrow roads which was all part of the fun getting... More

This is a beautiful restaurant if a little off the beaten track. Food is really excellent but expect to pay quite a bit more than average.

With high recommendations from our hotel we decided to try Donna Sophia restaurant. The experience began when we were picked up from our accommodation and driven to the restaurant. We enjoyed such a fantastic meal! The service was terrific and food was beyond delicious. It was a great first night in Italy for my friend and I. The food was... More

This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide, and we were glad we took her advice. The free shuttle picked us up at our hotel, which was a nice bonus. The ride to the restaurant through incredibly narrow alleys was a huge surprise and the highlight of our day! Once we got to the restaurant, we would never know it... More

This is a place where locals & tourists in the know love to eat. Being a travel agent am always looking for places off the beaten bath & Donna Sofia hits the mark. This was suggested by my hotel, stating that the restaurant would send a car to transport us-easy & convenient. The ride was hysterically funny because the streets... More

Found this little gem of a restaurant last night. A bit the beaten track but well worth seeking out, they even offer a free shuttle bus to help you home! We had a choice of indoor or outdoor eating, we chose outdoor in a beautiful sheltered garden area, where we were serenaded by two very accomplished musicians. It felt authentic... More

As the title of this review indicates my husband and have very mixed feelings about this place. As others have mentioned its not easy to find this restaurant, even with a map! We made a point of visiting because it was relatively close to where we were staying, and it also had good reviews on here, and we weren't disappointed,... More

The staff and food at Donna Sophia we both amazing. The menu includes an introduction by the owners of their philosophy on the food preparation for this region. The restaurant is dedicated to Sophia Loren and amazing pictures of the star adorn the walls. But even more amazing was the food and its preparation. Wonderful!

We were recommended the restaurant by our hotel as "romantic" and a similar quality to Ristorante Bagni Delfino which we had really enjoyed the night before (and I would highly recommend). The owner, Mario, is charming and the staff are all polite. The food is ok but that is all. Be careful of the specials - assuming the Donna Sofia... More

Growing up in a family that owns a restaurant it is always hard for me to find food the compares to my dads, but Donna Sofia was delicious! The antipasti was amazing….the eggplant was by far my favorite part! I asked for something that wasn't on the menu for my main course and my waiter offered to make it for... More
