I'm not one to write a review on a restaurant but felt I must on this restaurant! Celebrating my birthday with my husband and my daughter aged 9, we wanted to go somewhere new, so we chose ll sorriso! From the moment we walked in, to the moment we left, the service was impeccable from George and the rest of... More

Went here with a group of friends who wanted to try this place out after hearing good things. Sadly I found the whole experience lacking. Firstly if you want a quiet meal then don't go here, its loud! the decor is ok nothing spectacular but overall its fine. I did have to ask 3 times for a jug of tap... More

Easy parking in the evening, service really welcoming, good food for an ultra reasonable price. The only bad side is the noise. I strongly suggest a reservation for evening week-end as they had to refuse plenty of people when we were there.

I paid my last visit to Il Sorrisso last night. We had booked a table for 4 for 1015 after the Archway Theatre finished across the road. Actually, the theatre finished earlier than expected and we arrived at 5 before 10. And they refused to seat us. They said that whoever took the booking shouldn't have. That they were closing...

Vibrant and busy cafe style restaurant in Horley. Pricing on the high side, but this is not regretted as the cooking is authentic, fresh and tasty. If we are looking for a celebratory meal out with company - or just an intimate meal for two, this restaurant is always high on our choice list.

Three hungry people arrived for dinner after a long day. If this is the fifth best restaurant in Horley I fear for the rest. After forgetting the cutlery for our starters and bringing the wrong drinks - and who needs serviettes anyway- we were given large portions of tasteless overcooked food, two different types of veal and one risotto. Friendly... More

This restaurant has good menu and it is priced in the average. We had Lasagna and other pasta and were satisfied with the quality and atmosphere. There could be added table clothing to lift this restaurant to next stage.
