This restaurant is up a single lane narrow street, but they'll send a car to your hotel and pick you up for free. The food and wine were great and there are numerous picture of Sophia Loren.

This was our last evening in Sorrento and I wanted to eat at a very good place. This was recommended by the staff at our hotel Palazzo Abagnale and to sum it up, they could not have been more right. It was daily empty due to being early (8 pm) and off season. This probably facilitated our being the center... More

The service was warm and friendly, food was amazing, and the night we were there a very charming man was playing guitar and singing. This beautiful restaurant is set in a citrus grove and makes an absolutely delicious limoncello, not just a complimentary glass with our after dinner coffee, they left the bottle on the table! The approach to it... More

Where to start. To get to this hotel, them came to the Hilton Sorrento Palace and picked us up. Then the real fun started. To get to the restaurant, we headed down a couple of streets that were literally the width of the car we were in with the mirrors flipped in. Once we walked in, we knew we found... More

My husband and I came here during our honeymoon trip in October. The restaurant was recommended to us by the gentleman who arranged our transport and day trip from Sorrento to Capri. The free shuttle service was very much appreciated at the end of a long day of sight seeing. We were picked up at around 7:30 pm (perfect time... More

On our first night in Sorrento, jet lagged, we went to Donna Sofia at our hotel, Hotel Helios, recommendation. It was a great way to start a weeklong stay in Sorrento. The restaurant arranges for a car service to pick you up at your hotel- and they drive you through the narrowest streets at 40mpg- very impressive. The restaurant is... More

While eating at a restaurant on the island of Capri we asked the owner for dining suggestions in Sorrento. She graciously told us that every weekend she and her family eat at Donna Sofia. When we arrived in Sorrento, we took her suggestion and booked reservations. They have pick up service at no charge, and they collected all 10 of... More
