My favourite resturant in Sorrento

We eat here on our first night as it was the nearest eaterie to our villa. We liked it so much that we choose it for our last night too. The restaurant is slightly out of town and up a narrow alley but they will collect you and drop off back to the main town. The service and food were... read more

My husband and I have been eating in the Donna Sofia restaurant for the past 8 years when we have stayed in sorrento. I was disappointed to read a few reviews which were very negative. The restaurant serves delicious food, we have never had a bad meal and the portions are good. The restaurant is not in the centre but... More

The food was good, nothing more, service was good until the restaurant was getting more customers. Seemed that the waiters got paniced and the work got messed. We ordered desserts: 2 espressos and one ice-gream to out daughter, the coffees and a spoon to the ice-cream came quite quickly but, the great but, the ice-cream stayed on its way to... More

We chose the restaurant after we had read the great reviews, so we had high expectations. I understand very well that the restaurant drives the guests to and from the restaurant because it is situated away from the Central restaurant District in Sorrento. The service was very slow and impersonal, and the portions was not that big. But it did... More

We had been told that we would be picked up at 7:30 pm and while that DID occur, the van had broken seating and we were taken to a second pickup location and made to wait for 20 minutes and then all packed into the van. As if this was not bad enough, we arrived at the seating area of... More

Apparently named after their best customer, this restaurant cannot be reached by buses as the roads leading up to the restaurant are too narrow. So you can call the restaurant and they'll send their cars to pick you up from the town centre only a five minute drive. The food is excellent - entree are plates of anti-pasti - cooked... More

We decided to try it and we are extremely glad we did! As I made reservations, the gentleman working there also offered us a FREE shuttle ride To... More

We wanted to go to this restaurant as we thought it was within walking distance of the hotel - asked concierge at hotel about it to be told they offer complementary collection service. Very exciting ride through some very narrow streets! The food and the service was excellent- we shared the anti pasta starter - then they made my daughter... More

Highly recommended for anyone visiting Sorrento: excellent food and service. Do use the restaurant pick-up service because to get to the place you have to go through many small alley ways about a meter across. Quite scary but well worth a visit. It is one of the best meals we had in Italy!
