We went to Sorrento restaurant with family on 04/05/15 after many years of choosing not to eat there. The main reason for avoiding it was because at that time, the service and food was not great and my husband pointed out that there are many good Italian restaurants, so why go to a mediocre one.

Starters and mains very generous the service was very good too plus lots of lovely vegetarian options on their menu. The vegetarian pizza was a bit on the salty side and the cheese kept slipping off rather than staying where it should be but was delicious. The disabled toilet door was rather difficult to open and close due to requiring... More

The service was fantastic and they made me a special meal off the menu. As it was full it was a little noisy.
