Il Sorriso Restaurant is located a 5 minute drive from Gatwick Airport. We are a warm, welcoming and child- friendly restaurant, who use nothing but fresh ingredients to cook our many varied menu, which includes many mouth watering pasta dishes, chicken and fresh fish. We serve the best Pizza's around which are cooked fresh and baked in our special pizza oven by our pizza chef. We cater for parties and special occasions, and children's menu is available. A superb wine list is also available for those wine lovers out there.

Very nice pizza

In planned visit on a Tuesday evening, place was over half full, had a good traditional pizza which was very generous with toppings so I was happy, good value and nice staff.

Great service staff very welcoming food great we skipped starters and went straight for main which was ample enough along with olives to pick on while waiting. Pizza was a large size and hugely tasty. Atmosphere was great not too loud but not quiet enough to be conscious of your... More

Often use this for entertaining overseas visitors and so far all I have taken there (several different nationalities) have enjoyed it and rated the food highly One of my own personal favourites is the Crab stuffed ravioli !!! Service is warm and efficient and a good pointer is that the restaurant is always busy even mid week. As well as... More

I often eat here, the pasta and sauces are fresh and delicious and the pizzas made in the restaurant in front of you, also very good. They do nice red wine in carafes at a good price. I've been in restaurants with more ambiance, but the staff are friendly and helpful which makes up for that.

We have eaten there a few times, and always enjoyed the food, the only thing wrong with it is, it can be very noisy. The acoustics aren't very good, but having said that, the waiters are lovely, and always make you feel welcome.

We visit Il Sorriso weekly and particularly enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant. The staff are welcoming, the menu varied and the prices are reasonable. I would highly recommend the pizzas which are made freshly made and the ingredients are of good quality. We tend to choose between a few favourite dishes and there are always specials on offer...

Very dated decor that was a bit grubby. Brushetta was OK, Lasagna Bolagnaise was watery, meatless and bland.I ended up on the toilet later than night. Wine was OK but seriously overpriced. Service was good but I would definitely not be going back on my next visit to gatwick.

Fresh food, friendly staff and a warm welcoming atmosphere are just some of the things that make Il Sorriso an excellent Italian restaurant. We popped in on a Thursday night to a restaurant that was about a third full and managed to get a great table by the window. We had a starter of garlic bread and olives to share... More
