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.

The aim of the passionate team at Glasgow’s Sorrento Restaurant is to provide the most authentic Italian experience possible. As such, Italian flair is evident from the way the coffee is roasted right through to the food, the wine and the service. Sorrento really nails each element of the Italian restaurant experience and as a result the restaurant is immensely popular with those in Glasgow who know their penne from their tagliati. You’ll find Sorrento Restaurant on Byres Road in the very lively West End and whether for lunch or for dinner, it’s certainly worth getting excited.
Every dish at Sorrento Restaurant is beautifully presented in a way that almost makes you not want to eat it through fear of making the plate look messy, but after the first bite, you’ll not be able to stop. The menu is laced with quality in the way of classic pasta dishes, risotto and gnocchi, then pizza and plenty of meat – the medallions of veal topped with Parma ham and finished with white wine and sage veloute are particularly good. Also a winner is the Scottish fillet steak sautéed in butter with green peppercorns, red wine brandy and cream, as well as any of the pizzas. As far as Italian restaurants in Glasgow’s West End go, Sorrento is without doubt the one you need to try first. Reserve a table now.
Myself and a friend had lunch at Sorrento on 15 June. The food was tasty, hot and very nice. The waiter who attended to us most of the time was very courteous and happy to answer any questions we had. All in all we had a lovely time at Sorrento and would return.
The service was a tad slow, but oh my they made up for it with the food. Food was just amazing. Starter, main and dessert were just all perfect. Will definitely be back!
2nd visit and enjoyed it as much as the 1st. Excellent service and food. Relaxing ambience. Will definitely return again soon. Great location in Byres Road.
