Visited this restaurant with a voucher. Had been there before and was not too impressed but thought we would give it another visit to find out if first visit was just a blip. Was much busier because of vouchers and most diners seemed to have them. Service was good but again not impressed with food. Pasta had a lack of... More

My wife and I had a meal here twice this week. We thought it was so good the first time, we just had to back again. The food is brilliant, staff really friendly. Both times we have been it is full of regulars which tells you it must be good

Once again, an excellent meal at Ciao Sorrento. This time, we popped in for lunch on a Saturday (only open for lunch Friday & Saturday) and once again, the team at Ciao Sorrento delivered an excellent meal. The Pasta al Forno was once again an absolute delight. Keep up the Good Work!!! :)

Another beautiful meal in this great wee restaurant. We've been a few times now & have found the food to be exceptional & the service to be very friendly. There aren't many restaurants in Scotland that make us feel like we're back in Sicily but this is definitely one! Would highly recommend if you love Italian food

I decided to give this restaurant a shot after one of my clients recommended the food. I ordered the onion soup, which for me was not caramelised enough! Unless Italians cook this soup differently, but it was okay!! Then I had the vegetarian pizza, with no cheese, as I'm vegan! The pizza was flavoursome enough but not a lot of... More
