Sorrento

Easily the best eatery in Lido. Homemade sausages are the star. Reminds one very much of Sorrento or the Amalfi coast. Bella Italia.

My friend took me here for lunch on a Wednesday just before noon. We were seated immediately by the cutest 12 year old who was helping her Mom. The service was quick and accommodating. We both had the Sausage Sandwich which is far above the norm. They have several good choices of wine by the glass. We had the Brolio... More

Hidden away from the casual visitors, the residents regularly flock to this landmark gem. The sausage is renown far beyond Newport Beach and it is good. But the swordfish or clams with a pasta side dish are equally good. So is the procuitto wrapped melon. Then again, the pizza is world class. Breakfast/brunch won't disappoint even the most discerning foodie.... More

I often wonder why Newport does not have many cozy outdoor restaurants like Sabatino's. This is one of our favorite places for a relaxing lunch.

A hidden gem, a great old fashion Italian restaurant with many good options. Their sausages are well worth the visit.

This is a great hidden restaurant on Lido Isle. Everything is true Italian food made there. The sausage is there specialty and it is the best. The service is always great and the food is the best. A true Newport gem.

My wife and I arrived at just before 6 P.M. on a Friday, and were lucky enough to get a table outside, as within about 15 minutes, all the outside seating was gone. Our entres were the sausage stuffed red pepper, and my wife had the sausage and spinach stuffed ravioli, both of which were incredibly good in taste and... More

SABATINO'S is tucked away behind beautiful Newport Harbor. I ate there on a warm summer night with twinkling lights on the patio and romance in the air. It's a great place for dinner with that special person. Indoor seating is also available and the interior decor is charming old school style. The food here is spectacular! We had the sausage...

This Italian restaurant, which is known for its sausages, is a neighborhood treasure that is worth the effort you'll put into finding it for the first time. The food was very good, especially the stuffed peppers and gnocchi this visit, but the service was not great. We had to ask for almost everything we needed, including refills on all beverages....
