This restaurant was recommended by a local and is named after Sofia Loren. It’s a family style restaurant located in a residential area of Sorrento. A driver will pick you up and take you back to the hotel free of charge. We tried some of their specials and they were absolutely delicious. Great attentive, friendly service. You will not be...

Recommended by my hotel and based on previous reviews we had high hopes. After, at best, a bland starter and main course (grilled mixed fish consisting mainly of a big white rubber slinky masquerading as a squid) we declined a dessert, cut our losses and took the next shuttle taxi back.

This place was recommended to us by our travel rep. We were picked up from our hotel in a small minibus to take us there. It needed to be small as it is up a narrow alley above the town. We were the first to arrive that evening coming in at around eight on a Monday night. The staff and... More

Donna Sofia is an amazing restaurant. They picked us up at our hotel and drove us back (which was needed because the restaurant would be difficult to find on your own.) They offer gluten free options. I have celiac disease and they made the experience of eating there enjoyable. They brought us out an appetizer even though we did not... More

Only went to this restaurant after meeting friends who were also holidaying in Sorrento. They already had a reservation here and decided to join them. Our friends ordered the group starter which as mentioned by a previous reviewer was overpriced at €15 each and didn't taste particularly nice. The melanzane parmigiana looked and tasted like it was a few days... More

The location for this restaurant shown by TripAdvisor is not quite right. It is in fact quite a bit further up the road than is shown on the map. We nearly gave up in our attempts to walk there, but eventually we were amazed to find quite a swish restaurant tucked away up a tiny alley surrounded by ordinary housing.... More

After asking our driver, Gianpiero who is a food and wine expert, for a recommendation, we checked the reviews and booked for our last night in Sorrento. Well, we really did make the best choice. The restaurants shuttle picked 6 of us up from our hotel in Marina Grande and whizzed us up the narrow little lanes to the hideaway... More

We heard about this restaurant from people that were staying at our Hotel (Hilton Sorrento). The food was good and the staff was very friendly. All the Sofia Lauren pics were nice. It was quiet and tucked away in the town (compared to all the other places we ate) if you are looking for something quiet and local this is... More
