I visited with a friend on a Monday evening. I hadn't had such nice, genuine Italian food in a long time, I was very impressed and I can't wait to go back to try other things on the menu. What can I say? Lately I feel that all Italian restaurants much work off the same recipe, they taste so similar,... More

Went here with family for dinner - kids all loved their dishes which included Chicken salad, bruscetta, spaghetti bolognaise and marguerite pizza. Lovely desserts today - tiramisu was great! Service excellent and perfect for a good value family meal out.

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.

We arrived in Ireland early in the morning. We were staying in Malahide for 3 nights and didn't research restaurants in Malahide so we just walked the downtown area, looked at menus and picked this one for our first dinner in Ireland. I had the ravioli alla salsa rosa. It was excellent! My wife had the salmon and she thought... More

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.

Went here for an evening meal and was just in time for the earlybird menu. It is traditional Italian food off a good standard and not a bad price of 16 euro per person for 2 courses. 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.

Thank B G
