This restaurant is self-declared Italian, but most of the decoration is themed about Marseille and its key writer. This is a strange combination at best, or a nonsense of a concept, that does not augur much authenticity. Freshness and quality of service lack consistency, if...More

Not so good, not fresh at all, overpriced and look dirty inside... Not at all Italian as the name could suggest ... Frankly there are much better places in COTONOU to visit

This is a very nice restaurant, located centrally in the city. The Ambiance is great - very relaxing and ups your appetite. The food is very good - not very large portions but quite filling and very well prepared.

The fame of the Sorrento in town is not worth the value. Is a decent restaurant but not so exceptional. Pizza is fine, not the best in town anyway, and their "foi grasse" is really good. Other dishes are on the average level.

I had lunch here at two occasions with a group of app 7 to 12 persons. To facilitate ordering, choice was limited to "fish or meat". I took at both occasions the fish. It was OK, but rather basic. Certainly not a menu, inciting you...More
