We were stuck overnight in Gatwick airport and had no REAL food options to consider (Amy's was booked out!) so I looked for Italian restaurants nearby. Wow what a find, how Gatwick airport regulars have not bothered to seek this place out is beyond me. Let me say the decor is ordinary, forget any Amalfi coast comparasins in that regard... More

This restaurant has become our 'regular' and after weekly visits over a couple of years without doubt a favorite....the food is authentic, great quality and at a reasonable price. The staff are fantastic and have become a sort of extended family. My wife and I love our visits and hope that you will too.

We were staying at a nearby guesthouse the night before a flight out of Gatwick after a family holiday. Having maxed out on pub food, we opted for Il Sorriso for our last dinner in the UK. It was an excellent choice. Though we did not have a reservation, they squeezed us into the last available table. Attentive, thoughtful service... More

I was recommended this restaurant by a relative as we were staying overnight nearby before flying out of Gatwick. I emailed to book and received a standard response saying they would be in touch but after 4 days heard nothing so rang and was told they had had trouble with the email. We went on a Monday night and I... More

This is a typical Italian restaurant which can be very noisy if it is busy. The food is good and the service is always very friendly and efficient. The only downside is sometimes the portions are small, even for main meals. However, I would recommend it for a nice, casual meal.

We often eat at Il Sorriso and enjoy the food and the atmosphere. It can get busy so it's best to book. While the pizzas are nice, the salads and il forno dishes are well worth trying.
