Glasgow may feel a million miles away from the Mediterranean coastline, but Sorrento Restaurant brings a little piece of Neapolitan charm right to the heart of the West End. Located on Byres Road, a stone's throw from Hillhead subway station, Sorrento Restaurant is decorated in a rustic Italian style, and the warm ambience makes it feel like you are dining in the home of restaurant owners, the Russo brothers. The menu boasts all of the Italian classics and some curious fusions besides. Begin with the haggis Toscano, a Scottish twist on an Italian favourite, before indulging in one of their speciality pasta parcels like the delicious rettangoli con salmone e aneto.

Lovely food and really friendly atmosphere, we all had warm foccavia to start which was simple but delicious then sea bass for main which was lovely
Very good for experience. Food lovely and friendly staff. Service was a wee bit slow but we weren't in any hurry. Felt wines were a touch expensive. Would go back.
Very accommodating 🤗 Pure chance meeting of other family members in same restaurant. We were all able to sit together. Thanks Sorrento! Food delicious 😋
Lovely restaurant - delicious food and very attentive staff. We will most definitely return & we'll be sure to recommend to friends who live in the area.
The food was excellent and the staff were lovely. Main course portion sizes were just right and very very tasty - leaving room for a sweet - which was also delicious. One little niggle - we were given the main menu when we arrived and had to ask for the lunchtime menu - which was a pity because some people would possibly not return if they thought the only menu available at lunchtime was the a la carte. However we would all return again for the food, ambience and friendly staff.
Apparently the chef has changed when the restaurant became Sorrento. They have kept many of the dishes that were part of the Casa Russo menu, but the chef cannot execute some of them as well. The main dish I had was poorly presented and bland, which I was extremely disapointed with since my previous experience had been very good, which was why I had returned to this restaurant in the first place.
After seeing a "special Valentine Menu" advertised I decided to book as we had previously looked at the restaurant. Whilst in the restaurant I was told we must book online and make menu choices in advance…strange. So we booked and chose online. On Valentines Day we were warmly welcomed by staff. Then when our starters arrived, ravioli, the pasta was hard, dried and tasted only of salt. The accompanying bruschetta was tasty, but not tasty enough to distract from the ravioli. Main courses were tasty, drinks reasonably priced staff were attentive and seemed concerned that we had left a lot of food. I appreciated the offer of complimentary drink but I was driving, I like the location of restaurant and the a la carte menu, but I'm not sure if I'd visit again.
We had a lovely Italian meal at Sorrento, Byres Rd, Glasgow on Sat 21st January. The waiters were very attentive, friendly and happy. The food was fresh, hot and very very tasty. My only complaint is that the portions are big so make sure you are very hungry before you go to this restaurant. All in all a very lovely experience. We will be back.
The food was excellent. The staff were very helful and friendly. I would certainly recommend Casa Russo to others, and look forward to returning for another fabulous meal.
Terrible service. If we hadn't been there for a friend's birthday we would have walked out. Ignored when we first walked in, waited too long to be seated at a table we had booked, we were in the restaurant 45 mins before one of us got a drink, 55 mins before the three of us had a drink, the waiter brought the first plate of food and sat it in the middle of the table while he went back to the kitchen to find out what it was, the garlic bread we ordered appeared after we had all finished our meal, one of us ordered a second beer but we had to eventually go up to the bar to get it, and then despite sitting for 30 mins after our main course, no one offered us desserts or coffees. The food was good but it's not worth the effort.
I've visited this place before a few times when it was Casa Russo and always enjoyed it. Last night, a group of us went to Sorrento for my birthday. The waiting staff were very nice and attentive although a couple didn't have great English so didn't understand some of our requests. The food was average and not nearly as good as it was before. I would not rush back.
first time there, I was looking for a restaurant close to kibble palace (we had tickets to Bard in the Botanics) friendly staff, comfortable seating and good food (pizza & fries for my friend and penne contadina for me) we'll definitely be going back
I had a three-course lunch along with a glass of wine on Friday afternoon, which was excellent. Afterwards I was feeling a bit full to have any dinner later on in the day, but once again, I still enjoyed my lunch at Cassa Russo.
It was incredibly quiet when we arrived (only us there!) but still a pleasant atmosphere. Staff were attentive without being overbearing, food was piping hot and tasty. Fixed price lunch menu was excellent value. All in all a good experience.
Excellent service, excellent food, in a convivial setting, would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice Italian restaurant with friendly welcoming staff, reasonable priced excellent quality food in cosy setting, definitely will be going back again!
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff were very professional, great service, and fantastic food, This was our first time in the restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed it, we will definitely be back again, and will recommend the restaurant to our friends
Excellent food, great value, lovely restaurant and very attentive staff. Special mention to the young lady who was our waitress. She was delightful and so helpful as were all the staff. Will certainly be paying a return visit.
Service was very good. Attentive and alert to any need but not intrusive. Delicious haggisy starter. Tomato pasta was lovely. Liked the fruit tree in the centre of the room and Italian staff. Felt quite authentic.
The overall experience was not great. Hence........ The restaurant is nice, clean and inviting. The starter was nice, however, the mains were disappointing on 1 count and inedible on the other. Sea food risotto- tasty rice with well cooked prawns and drastically over cooked calamari. Spaghetti carbonara was curdled like scrambled egg and could not be eaten. Staff were apologetic, however, I think that they knew the dish was not right when they served it as they were not long in coming over and asking about it. First impressions last, we won't be back.
A warm welcome, tasty food and a comfortable atmosphere! Staff were very efficient but not intrusive and the food was nicely presented. Will definitely visit again, in fact I am, same time next week already booked!
