I've being going to Il Sorriso for years, always a safe bet. Friendly staff, delicious meals... until today. I went back with family, I noticed a lot of their usual tasty dishes are no longer on the menu. And furthermore my dish - a pasta, prawn, chicken & asparagus, was a starter size portion for €18! It was tiny! I... More

I visit il sorriso often, not just for the food but for their gorgeous wine selection - worth mentioning their gorgeous house red, their staff and the whole relaxed ambiance of the restaurant. I've come here with friends, family and with my partner and have always been impressed. I love their lasagne & their bruschetta the most but everything else... More

A very good Italian restaurant in the centre of Malahide. All the usual pizzas and a large variety of pastas. Our meals were both very very good. There was a very good atmosphere and the staff were very good. Their Tiramisu was excellent and a good size for sharing. Meals were sensibly priced.

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.
