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.

POOR QUALITY FOOD

Poor quality tasteless food, small portions that looked unappetising. The prices were expensive for what we had. The noisy environment spoilt the family celebration. The chairs were very uncomfortable, the seating did not allow us to feel relaxed and all talk to one another.

great place. Was a bit put off when we arrived to a completely empty restaurant but decided to stay and give it a go. So glad we did, was our wedding anniversary and we decided on lunch rather than dinner. Food and service both excellent. Sure we will be going back.

I had to organise in advance, a meal of seasonal vegetables as a main meal within a party of 12 for 20th Dec as I have special dietary requirements. The chef organised this and I was given a pretty but limited plate of broccoli, carrots and grilled corgette with a side order of "roast potatoes". Side order was hot but... More

We decided last minute to visit this great restaurant; it's fab! We had a fantastic meal, with great service and good price. The staff are great here and we will be returning soon. So pleased we have now found a yummy local Italian.

Myself & a work colleague visited I'll Sorriso while staying at a local hotel. The restaurant itself has a good ambience. The house white wine was good, if a little pricey. The food was well prepared & portions were of a good size. However, the service was exceptional. Overall, a pleasant evening.

We were a group of eight for my daughter's birthday. Firstly, the decor and furniture has changed to a much more comfortable and relaxing ambience. We all had different meals and they were all very good, especially my veal saltimbocca! The restaurant was full to bursting as there was another birthday party group but the service was first class.

Arriving at 7.40pm on a Saturday night with no reservation I knew I would be taking a risk getting served - when I walked through the door there wasn't a single spare table The manager approached me and apologised profusely for not being able to seat me... I put my sad face on and he looked at the restaurant booking... More

A very enjoyable lunch for 14 of us for a colleague's leaving lunch. Lovely menu with lots of choice, so hard to choose only one main course & dessert! Beautiful food & plenty of it and definitely very good value for money. Great atmosphere with attentive staff with no large gaps of waiting in between courses but not rushed either.... More

Lovely food and very nice restaurant. Check your bill though, there twelve of us and only one of us spotted a £50 service charge added to our bill which was removed after we complained. Otherwise very good meal in a lovely restaurant. Will return for sure!
