We stopped here twice during our stay in Sorrento. The restaurant was always bustling with customers but that never changed the quality of our service or food. Wait staff was extremely friendly and spoke English. Prices were very reasonable for the quality and amount of food served. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Lots of choices on the menu - we...

We ate at Il Leone Rosso more than once during our short stay in Sorrento, so obviously enjoyed it. What made it so good for us: good service, manager and staff are all welcoming and attentive, good food at reasonable price, value made even better with complimentary bread, pizza and limoncello. Desserts a delight and more than generous. Be aware... More

We visited this restaurant on a recent trip and liked it so much we went back two more times. Food and service was great and the limoncello served at the end of the meal was terrific!

The food was great, and the manager (I assume since he was in a button down) was great, as well. We were sitting outside and it began to rain, so we asked to move to an open table under the awning. After about 10 minutes of being ignored and then giving the table to someone else, they finally moved our... More

Very good choice in Sorrento, nice place and good food, I suggest eggplant a parmigiana for start and spaghetti a carbonara with a house red wine. Excellent coat of benefit. Go there

group meal for 8 of us and service was quick. some meals were fine others perhaps more average. Not fine dining, but good atmosphere, no frills. Pizza thin and crispy, Chateaubriand was enormous. Limoncello at the end of the meal was appreciated by most of the group!

Ate here on our 1st night in Sorrento. Ordered fried squid, what we got was a plate of batter!. Then we ordered the 3 tasting pasta dishes which when they arrived looked amazing! They turned out to be absolutely tasteless and as our plates were cold the pasta quickly became cold also. Some of the staff weren't too good either.... More

After trying one or two others around our hotel we chanced upon Il Leone Rosso and what a joy - busy, warm and very welcoming - decided to go there again and we were not disappointed.

We ate here our first night, as recommended by our hotel. We had the seafood antipasti, it looked amazing, but was quite average in taste - not sure how that is even possible with the fried fish. For the main course I was craving meat, so the waiter suggested a beef dish with a cheese and almond sauce. It was... More

We were just walking and saw this place off of the main streets. It was crowded inside but there was outside seating with a heat lamp so it was perfect. We ordered a bottle of wine, cheese plate and entrees. The cheese plate and bread was yummy. Our entrees were good but not excellent. Service was good as well.
