After an exciting ride by the waiters from the center of town up to the restaurant,you have to be driven in, I felt a bit like James Bond chasing his villain. Once we arrived at Donna Sofia located on the top of a hill in Sorrento we were immediately sat in an intimate garden setting where our feast began. Fresh baked bread, olive oil, various appetizers like squash blossoms and eggplant that's worth fighting your family for got us started. Beautiful Italian white wine, and then an entree of fresh made ravioli with truffles that put several of us over the edge of pure delight. We finished the meal with their homemade lemonchello - delicious! The staff was warm, skilled, and the food outstanding. When in Sorrento, this is worth a stop!

Pickup in restaurant van was prompt form our hotel, friendly driver drove us up some of the craziest alleyways and this was excellent fun.

Restaurant hidden away in a residential area behind the Hilton.

We had a table in the garden which was a very pleasant setting and atmosphere.

Lovely food and good service.

Highly recommended experience away from the bustle.

We visited the restaurant as a large group and we could not have been better looked after. Picked up from our hotel and driven up to the authentic restaurant in the sorrento hills. We felt we were getting the real deal- a true Italian experience. The food was delicious- so many courses, each one more delicious than the last. Mario made us feel so welcome. He and his staff were warm, friendly and attentive.
The wine was great, three types of Limoncello and petit fours so delicious, we couldn't resist. All in all, it was all exceptional. One of the best dining experiences we''ve ever had.

We went to Donna Sophia as a party of 22 (roughly) and we all had the perfect evening and left full and smiling. The food was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection from starter to coffee. The service from the waiters and Mario himself was perfect and friendly - i honestly cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. The fish, steak and veggie dishes were all perfect and served at the same time so no one was left waiting. Everything was hot, full of flavour and we were not rushed. We were all picked up in the free shuttle bus as the roads are rather tight - perfect evening. I will go again if i return to Sorrento!

Good restaurant but the shuttle there was awful. 20 min late and then a wreck of a car picks us up but we then had to wait for 5 more people, we barley fit in the car.
Coming to the restaurang i understand that this is the only way, it wasnt more than 10 minutes but it felt very off. The rest was really good but just as i expected we had to wait for quite a while to get home, not what i was in for but still very good and worth a visit
