Return visit. Food was excellent. Hosts were good. Glass of Prosecco a bit steep. Had the Bruschetta to start and pasta dishes for main courses. ❤️❤️❤️

Just a lovely meal, had the early bird menu, the mussels and then I had the 12oz steak with chips, perfectly cooked to my wish. Home made chips just like my mums. Everyone else had a really good meal with good service. Would recommend to anyone.

Visited here with family. Waiters were really friendly and helpful And very nice to the children. Food was quick and tasty. Chicken wings were a favourite at our table. Children's menu was great with smaller portions of all pizza and pasta available. Reasonable prizes.

With this type of meal you could only get the house wine by the glass. I would have preferred to have had choice.... More

This was our first time to go to Il Sorriso and we will definitely be going back. Very good service and the food was excellent. Wide variety of choice on the menu. We can recommend the steak and chicken dishes. The tiramisu was the best I have tasted outside of Italy.

Started with Antipasto, Gnocchi and Eggplant Appetizers. Portions were adequate. Gnocchi was especially delicious. Dinner included Spaghetti Bolognese and Spaghetti with Tiger Prawns. The flavors were delicious. Restaurant offers cozy atmosphere and a Friendly staff.
