We had our best meal for a week at this restaurant. We had the special tasting plate and then pasta and desert and it was all magnificent. The hotel arranged for pickup and drop off, which was on time.

We were recommended to go to Donna Sophia by the owner of Bocelli restaurant in Staten Island, NY. We visited many cities in Italy and many restaurants, but by far the BEST was DONNA SOPHIA. Not only was the food amazing and delicious, but the atmosphere was so wonderful. Music was playing, no televisions around, just a premier dining experience.... More

This was recommended by our hotel. it is out of the way, but someone from the restaurant picks you up and returns you after dinner. You are driven down a VERY narrow road to get there...which is part of the adventure! This is not a super touristy place. The outdoor patio was a beautiful setting. Service was excellent and food...

Very interesting restaurant off the beaten track in Sorrento - but not to worry as they offer a complimentary pick up and drop off service! This place is great... a blatant shrine to Sophia Loren. Very friendly and pleasant staff and large garden area with lots of seating. Was celebrating a birthday dinner and the owner spared no expense... bringing... More

Lucky to find this and nearly gave up. Out of the way but the interior and ambiance were just lovely. Food was excellent and you are not rushed. They offer a free shuttle bus as well which came in useful after to many Lemoncellos.

What a wonderful place it is. If you come to Sorrento its a must! The restaurant is slightly off the beaten track but it is really worth trying to find it. The atmosphere and ambience are fantastic as is their food. You must try their pasta with crab, gnocci and the beautiful breadcrumbed veal. I love their fries too -... More

We were recommended here by our local taxi/concierge Biagio, and very fortunate to come across such an elegant, tasteful, savory, welcoming, and humble place. You could choose blindly from the menu and still bat 1000, but don't miss the chateau-briande, homemade lemoncello and his wife's canolli. It's hard to find this gem and I appreciate that; it keeps a full... More
