Four of us were in Sorrento for 16 nights and once we discovered this amazing restaurant we returned 7 or 8 nights for dinner. Their chicken dish with the tomato based sauce was amazing; so much so in fact, I ordered it 3 times. My husband and our friends also thoroughly enjoyed their seafood and pasta dishes, as well. Their... More

We were in Sorrento on a tour and asked our driver for a nontouristy local place for lunch. He recommended I'll Leone Rosso and it was excellent. It is about 3 blocks from the main square and filled with locals. We had a party of eight so we had quite a number of item on the menu and everyone loved... More

There are countless restaurants to choose from in Sorrento but Leone Rosso stands out amongst the competitors. Huge portions of southern Italian classics like lobster pasta and linguine and clams for great prices. Be sure to get the Nutella pizza for dessert!

Our hotel suggested this restaurant. It was good but not outstanding. We all ate specials of the day. There were many tourists here. As I said, the food was good but not memorable. We did receive good service.

We ate here the first night in Sorrento. Our driver from the airport had recommended it. We are so glad we took his suggestion. We were seated right away. The service was very good. The food was delicious and the Limencello was the perfect way to end the meal. I definitely recommend II Leone Rosso!

We ate here on our first and last night. It is very popular so very busy but we loved the buzz of this typical Italian family restaurant. The pizzas were delicious and there is a large choice of pasta dishes too which we all sampled and everyone enjoyed what they had.

If you want to taste real Italian food (especially sea food) at very reasonable prices and with a friendly service you must try il Leone Rosso very close to Piazza Laura and just 50 meters from Via Corsa Italia. You won't regret.

This small restaurant spills onto the pavement to give it the complete Italian/Euro feel. The brilliant staff look after you and put you into an easy, comfortable lunch or dinner. We visit this restaurant for lunch and most of us eat pizza - there are lovely. But tuck into the giant garlic prawns or anything really. Se will be back... More

Typical Italian setting - quite traditional, maybe a bit dated - We did enjoy our pizza and the service was good - I was disappointed in the panna cotta pudding though it just felt mass produced. Other than that no complaints - prices were good.

Visiting from a cruise ship in Naples, our driver suggested this place for lunch. Lovely terrace table that kept us out of the rain. We enjoyed our pizza and beer at a very reasonable price. They brought us a complimentary limoncello at the end. Definitely recommend this place.

Thank paulaups
