About Sorrento Restaurant - Glasgow

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.

Sorrento has friendly, attentive staff. Fantastic meal. Overall excellent. Fillet steak cooked to perfection and Strawberry Mess was an indulgence that would do nothing for the waistline but certainly was worth it.

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.
