I can't recommend this restaurant enough. The food is amazing - especially the seafood dishes. I had the black linguine with crab and it was delicious, and my mum had a pasta dish with giant prawns and lobster tails and she loved it. The service is friendly and atmosphere is nice. Its not the cheapest place but worth it.

My husband & I came across Sorrento's whilst in Stratford upon Avon. We had a brilliant meal before we went to the Swan Theatre off the Pre Theatre Menu. Fantastic value. Special mention for the lasagne! Best we've ever had!!

Ate here for the first time while a friend was visiting. We had to wait for our table, but the lounge area is a comfortable place to wait. We were given our menus to look at while we waited. Seating was a bit uncomfortable; the tables are very close together. My friend had the lasagna and said it was good.... More

Love this traditional Italian family restaurant. Big menu and Italian comforts abound. Have been dining here annually for over 25 years and keep coming back to this old friend. Good quality food and a great reasonably priced wind list.

I visited this restaurant tonight with my partner for his birthday treat. The service, atmosphere and ambience were wonderful and the food was exceptional. We would highly recommend the minestrone, lobster bisque, Steak, tagliatelle bolognaise and amaretto roulade. If you are in Stratford upon Avon and want a special meal visit Sorrento. Thank you for making my partner's birthday meal... More

Visited this restaurant over 30 years ago - very poor then - as did not get our main course until 2 hours after our starter which arrived an hour after orders were taken! Hoped it would be different this time. Disappointing- starter - my husband who is not a cook said he could have down better. No offer of any... More

Perfect location for a special celebration. Visited on our wedding anniversary. Food and wine were fabulous. The sea food being a particular highlight. Out of the way location makes it a less crowded venue. Tip: Choose a time while the performances are on to be sure of a table.
