My first time at this restaurant, and I was delighted with the food, the service, & the surroundings. My wife & I booked a table for 6:00pm on a Wednesday. The place was warm & welcoming, & we were met by the owner immediately. He was very friendly, & showed us to our table. He was also serving the food.... More

Lovely little restaurant tucked down Union Street in Dundee. Had a Christmas meal here with friends and it will now be one of our favourite places to eat. It has a fantastic cosy ambience with very friendly staff. The food was excellent, the best tiramisu we've had. Highly recommend a visit!

Genuine warm Italian hospitality in abundance. The hostess in this cosy and informal restaurant makes you feel like one of the family. Superb cannelloni, and top-of-the range prosecco. A supermodel once observed that "nothing tastes as good as thin feels". Well she clearly has not had the homemade tiramisu in Ciao Sorrento. It is absolutely stupendous, and the portion size...

We visited Ciao Sorrento for dinner while visiting our son in Dundee and were not disappointed. Very friendly, attentive service - wine poured for us and staff checked that all was ok. Good portions of authentic Italian food and great atmosphere. As a third generation Italian who cooks regularly from scratch, I have to say it was lovely food -... More
