Visited this restaurant many times and each time have enjoyed wonderful and authentic Italian food. The service is always excellent and Sorrento Restaurant remains one of my favourites in the area.

We booked at the last minute on a busy night and they accommodated us which was great. The service was excellent and so was the food. Will be going back the next time we are in Stratford.

Hands down an amazing Italian restaurant. A great menu not dominated by pizza and pasta but serving lovely fish and meat dishes. Highly recommended.

The food was excellent and the aded extra of having our table specially decorated because it was our wedding anniversary added to our pleasure. Thank you to everyone at Sorrento
