After five nights in Sorrento we had the best dinner on the last night. The food is amazing and there is lots to choose from. We had the Donna Sophia appetizer and the off-menu specials. Mario was accommodating and combined dishes into one for each of us so we could sample two entres we couldn't decide between. I had green gnocchi with bacon and provolone and ravioli with black truffles and porcini. My husband had spaghetti scampi and veal check. For the finale, flourless chocolate cake and house-made limoncello and fennel liquor. This place is only slightly off the main-drag but if you call ahead, Massimo will pick you up and take you back to your hotel.

We just had a lovely meal at Donna Sofia with a multigenerational family. We never would have found the restaurant on our own but it was recommended to us by a local and so we decided to give it a try and were very glad we did. The service was friendly and attentive. We started with antipasti of the day which were all delicious -fried baby calamari, tomato salad from their garden, mini egglant parmesan, just to name a few. For main dishes we had gnocchi, crab ravioli, and fish with lemon sauce that was all also very good. There were several options for dolci which were all delicious, particularly a pistachio semifreddo and a torte with wild strawberries. We had a great meal and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal in Sorrento.

What a fantastic, authentic restaurant! We asked our tour guide ( private tour for ten people) where the best local restaurant would be for lunch. Guido took us to this hidden treasure as it is his favourite spot to take his girlfriend.
Just driving to the restaurant was an amazing experience through a winding narrow olive tree lined uphill road. We were greeted at this unique restaurant by friendly staff. The decor serves as a museum to the actress Sofia Loren. It is listed by TripAdvisor as one of the top ten places to visit in Italy.
Our meal was so delicious and the wine pairing equally so. Do yourself a favour and add this to your bucket list!
