A large and extensive menu that had a lot of different options. A great place to go if you have a bigger party and people want different things. It's right down the block from the train station. Hilariously enough, my friend picked this place due to TripAdvisor reviews beforehand and once we arrived and got out of the train station,... More

One of waiters in the restaurant was so rude to us. He almost threw a bottle of water and food plates on our table and even at the beginning he set up our table very roughly. I don't remember his face and name but if the owner of the restaurant can see this review, I really recommend him or her... More

Service was impeccable, just like the food. We ate outside under the patio, even if it was a cold rainy day as there were 3 heaters. More than affordable price. The waiter was so nice he gifted us a bottle of their homemade chocolate liquor. P.S. the banana split for dessert is amazing!

Excellent family lunch with a few spritz's and several starters which we left the waiter to choose, risotto, lobster pasta, cannelloni, porcini pasta and a chicken breast dish with Gorgonzola, roast potatoes, brócoli, 2 bottles of vino and a pile of various deserts, and still came in under budget. Excellent!

Would recommend this restaurant for those people visit Sorento! They have best pizza and grilled seafood.

Leone Rosso was so good, we ended up eating there twice. Initially we stumbled across it after leaving the train station. We had spent the day touring Pompeii and were exhausted, thirsty and hungry. What an awesome find! Normally a restaurant that has such a huge menu (with pictures) is to be avoided. That is not the case with Leone... More

The food was very good and very affordable. Funny and friendly staff. Mariano was really nice with me and my Irish boyfriend, he also gave to us a complimentary homemade Limoncello and chocolate liquors at the end of the meal. We spent a very good time there.

We had lunch here before walking around Sorrento. The staff are attentive and very pleasant. The food menu is extensive and whilst the pizza is a key attraction judging by what people around us were having I would also recommend the fresh fish. Worth a visit.

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
