Had the fresh heart of palm salad which was amazing! Ordered ice cream for dessert but it came a bit melted.

This is a very nice restaurant, located centrally in the city. The Ambiance is great - very relaxing and ups your appetite. The food is very good - not very large portions but quite filling and very well prepared.

The fame of the Sorrento in town is not worth the value. Is a decent restaurant but not so exceptional. Pizza is fine, not the best in town anyway, and their "foi grasse" is really good. Other dishes are on the average level.
