The waiters were very welcoming and always making sure everything was ok, I had the Pasta Carbonara which I thought was very bland and tasted like it was microwaved. I did however have the Chicken Pate and that was very nice, an okay restaurant but I wouldn't return in a hurry.

I'm from Manchester but my OH is a Wigan lad and Sorrentos is the only place we choose when going out for an Italian in Wigan. The food is stunning steaks cooked to perfection as are the pasta dishes. All the waiters have been hear for years and are very good with all customers both young and old. Keep up... More

Visited this restaurant last night after not having visited since 2008! The food was as delicious as it always. The staff are lovely as always! Cannot fault the service. However the noise is a problem. Big problem. My husband and I couldn't hear each other talk. Won't be going back unfortunately.

Amazing. Best Italian I've been to. Visited few years back with an ex partner and loved it then. Even better than I remember, friendly service and top quality food. Will defiantly be my regular Italian! Xo

Great fun atmosphere and friendly staff, lovely if you like Italian. Had a good experience on many occasions but on the last visit I wasn't so impressed as I didn't feel we had a great meal for the money! Also there was a large group of ladies for a party which was really loud and we had to shout to... More

A quiet midweek visit - warmly welcomed and the food was very good. Not too busy but the staff were very attentive and overall a really good meal. I will most certainly re-visit.

We popped in here on a Friday night as a last minute thing and we were not disappointed. The starters we ordered were a great start to any meal and the portion size was more than generous especially the potato skin dish. We both had a chicken dish for main course and the chicken portion was once again huge in... More
