In need of cheering up, so visited Sorrento; lovely welcome. Staff very polite, professional and humorous. Shared a bruschetta which was excellent, one chicken dish, was excellent and a veggie aubergine pasta, again excellent. Lovely rose wine - bit expensive!.

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience here. We came for lunch on Valentines, and only wanted to order little bits, which the staff were very helpful. The food was brilliant and the staff were really nice and made us feel welcome. Will definitely be back for lunch and a proper meal too!
