Description: Il Sorriso Restaurant is located a 5 minute drive from Gatwick Airport. We are a warm, welcoming and child- friendly restaurant, who use nothing but fresh ingredients to cook our many varied menu, which includes many mouth watering pasta dishes, chicken and fresh fish. We serve the best Pizza's around which are cooked fresh and baked in our special pizza oven by our pizza chef. We cater for parties and special occasions, and children's menu is available. A superb wine list is also available for those wine lovers out there.

“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

It looks worth a try from outside and the staff are friendly, but the food just wasn't as good as others nearby; it lacked flavour in my opinion. For the money, I would choose elsewhere.

“If you're overnight in Horley/Gatwick, definitely worth a visit.”

I visited this restaurant recently and was pleasantly surprised, I had Hot smoked salmon linguine and it was perfect. The staff were very attentive and VERY pleasant, It also has an added bonus as the pizza table is in the restaurant on full view, and the chef should be on stage, he's very entertaining and throws the pizza's about 4 ft high, never dropping a thing. Prices were very reasonable too, will definitely return.

“Great welcome, service, food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We are a mature couple from South Wales who fly a couple of times a year from Gatwick to the Caribbean. We stay the night before the flight in an "airport" hotel. We found Il Sorriso a few years ago searching places to eat on the web as we had a poor experience at a Gatwick hotel. We treat this overnight stay as the start of our holiday and now our 6th visit to this restaurant probably speaks volumes for it's quality, value for money and great service. On this occasion, we booked a table via their website and received a call from them as confirmation of the booking. We always receive a warm welcome, the restaurant is well staffed and customer service is attentive, informal, light, warm and professional. The food, price and value for money are just great and the daily specials are superb. On this visit, the restaurant was quite full but the service quality was maintained to the usual high standard. This is always a great start to our holiday and we look forward to our next Gatwick flight. Thank you Il Sorriso - keep smiling!!
