There are Italian restaurants, and then there are family-run, traditional Italian restaurants dedicated to high quality ingredients and a passion for sharing their culinary heritage. At Sorrento in Orrell you can notice the difference. Found on Gathurst Road outside Wigan, just off the M6 and M58 in Orrell, Sorrento is a local stalwart that is also a popular pit stop for passing travellers. The antipasti selection is long and elegant, including exquisite dishes like smoked salmon parcels with prawn and marie rose sauce alongside classic palate-exciting starters like buffalo mozzarella and plump cherry tomatoes on a salad of fresh wild rocket. Add to this Sorrento’s long list of handmade and stone-baked pizzas, homely pastas and rich meat, fish and vegetarian main meals and you already have several reasons to come back for a second visit.
Great service and food. The waiters were kind and responsive, very friendly and good with all members of the family. Food was lovely and cooked well.
