Very personable service, friendly, they bring tastes of local foods and liquors for you to taste. Mariano, our waiter, was very sweet and helpful. Also, if you are staying in a hotel, they will pick you up and drop you off. The restaurant is down a microscopic street about 2 inches wider than the car we came in. An adventure... More

The restaurant, named and decorated in tribute to Sophia Loren, is tucked away in a Sorrento neighborhood that requires traversing several narrow streets, the journey often quite exciting! The food is excellent, as is the service, prepared as if you were visiting a friendly Italian family for dinner. The place is decorated with many photos of Sophia and other dignitaries... More

I recently went back to Italy for vacation and the first and last place I must eat while in Sorrento is always Donna Sofia, however I snuck in a dinner during the middle of our stay this time as well. The service there is one of a kind...This is such a beautiful and romantic restaurant. The food has always been... More

I have traveled to Sorrento twice in the past three months and Donna Sofia was even more amazing the second time around than it was the first. The pasta is everything you could imagine when you think about authentic southern Italian cooking. The fish was out of this world and the dessert was spectacular. I ate so much I must... More

Do not let the few bad reviews stop you from visiting this restaurant, all I can imagine is that they were not at the same restaurant. There were seven ladies on a tour of the Amalfi coast and when our guide and driver asked what we fancied to eat for lunch. We all said some pasta and fresh seafood. We... More

Hands down the best restaurant we went to in all of Italy. My friends and I did a tour of Italy (Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome, Sorrento). We found this gem and it was Absolutely AMAZING!! The chef was amazing, the food was amazing, the waiter was amazing, the wine was amazing, the atmosphere (so private, like a hidden treasure) amazing,... More

The restaurant is beautiful and there's a shuttle to pick you as a regular sized van can't make the trip up on the very narrow road. Service was excellent and the food was amazing!! You must make a reservation if you are in Sorrento during the season. Don't miss out this food experience!!

The car ride to the restaurant is a little amazing but the trip is worth it. The chef is the one that takes your order. Listen to what he recommends. There were 7 of us and not one of us had a bad meal. It was absolutely amazing. The atmosphere if gorgeous and quaint. It is tucked back in the... More

We visited the exceptionally hard to find Donna Sophia by finally calling their shuttle van to pick us up. The restaurant was interesting but had rather loud inappropriate background music. We were directed to a front corner table while everyone else seemed to be in an intimate back room??? The food was good but the service was indifferent as though... More

Donna Sofia was recommended by our hotel as one of the finest restaurants in Sorrento. And, they were right. However, it is so far off the beaten track that the restaurant offers pick up service to their guests. Atmosphere is unique; the theme is a tribute to Sofia Loren. Food and service were impeccable. The appetizers, in particular were unique... More
