We were with Gaetano's tours and we were with our tour guide Antonio. He suggested Donna Sofia for lunch. We parked in Sorrento and took a shuttle up to the restaurant. We zipped through tight alleys up to the restaurant which was like an estate where they added a restaurant. There were olive trees and lemon trees. No water view,... More

I have been to Sorrento many times and I can honestly say it is one of the best restaurants in Sorrento in all aspects, from the food to the service and ambience. Donna Sofia is a truly authentic Italian restaurant off the beaten track, which can be accessed via a complimentary shuttle bus service from your hotel. You have the... More

After eating at many of the trip advisor top rated restaurants in Sorrento- this was definitely the best by far. Whilst other reviews correctly point out the restaurant is a little difficult to find although if like us,you are staying at the Hilton, it is close by. Transportation is also provided free of charge I had probably one of the... More

We had an amazing night in this restaurant. Getting to it is an adventure in itself as it is far from the centre of Sorrento. But one need not worry as the owner provided transport to and from for free. The place is beautiful, so scenic and peaceful and away from the tourist paths in Sorrento. Food was excellent and...

If you are in Sorrento Italy, This place should be on your list for dinner at least one night. It is off the beaten path, but the restaurant sent a driver to pick us up and drop us off. The ride, I must say was a hoot, with many laughs along the way, but safe. The service was impeccable! the... More

Had dinner here. Quality of food was nothing special and way overpriced. Service was also poor ie upon starting to top up my own wine glass our waiter came over and said "oh, that is my job" but that was the only time he did do it. The restaurant was a quarter full at most so there really is no... More

What a beautiful restaurant in a tucked away setting!! With a reservation, a driver came to pick us up at our hotel. We walked up a small driveway to a serene little destination. The food was excellent, The wine even better . We were given complementary limoncello and meloncello after dinner. The staff was attentive and friendly. Oh and the... More

Having read the reviews online we decided to go the this restaurant and I am so happy that we did. The food was top class and the staff were amazing. I took my 2 children (7 & 4) and they could not have been made to feel more welcome. The staff made my son laugh so much he could hardly... More

What a great find and one which I was in two minds about sharing as the atmosphere, service and food were all so good. This now ranks as our most enjoyable and authentic meal in Italy to date. Superb squid, excellent pasta and fabulous beef, with desserts to satisfy chocolate and Gelatto lovers....see picture. Great wine choice and all sensibly... More

As part of Stefano Rome tours from a cruise ship in Naples we spent a day of sightseeing capped off by a surprisingly delightful afternoon lunch at this restaurant. The experience started with a transfer to small vehicles that drive thru narrow passageways to reach this restaurant nestled among lemon trees and vineyards . The ambience of nostalgic photos and...
