About Sorrento Restaurant

Dear diners, please be aware that non-Quandoo vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with online booking. If you wish to use non-Quandoo vouchers, please contact the restaurant directly.

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 food and drink, and service in there was superb, top class. One of the best Italian restaurants on Byres Road. That's why I'm rating this place with 5 stars.

Excellent food and service. Staff were courteous and helpful. The lunch menu was terrific value for money at £7.95 for two courses. We'll be back!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The food was great but the service was slow and inattentive. Waiter disappeared while serving the wine - it later transpired he'd cut himself but he didn't explain what had happened. Later, it was hard to catch someone's eye to get the bill.

Great service, quick, friendly. Restaurant looks great inside. Food was great. Meat balls slightly undercooked but still tasted great! Only downside is the restaurant has now changed name so we had difficulty locating it.

The food was excellent although the service was slow and they mixed up the drinks/food orders at times, they did strive to make things better. I would recommend Sorrento and will go back.

Very bland Minestrone Soup, almost Consomme! Minestrone is usually a good measure of an Italian restuarant's kitchen!! However, Main courses were good, Calzone particularly, in both quality and quantity. Restaurant had nice ambience and servis staff were friendly. Competitively priced too.

Great value for money, friendly and polite staff. The starter 'Focaccia Pomodoro' was delicious and more than enough for 2 people. Can't wait to go back!

Waited 45mins for our meals (in an otherwise empty restaurant). Forgot to bring one of the side dishes and took 15mins to bring a coffee. Food was ok. Mushroom risotto quite bland. Overall disappointing. Likely will not be back

Service very sloooow. Starter was minimalistic, main course was very poor. My wifes cooking is better, so whats the point? Give the head waiter his due, he never charged for the main meal.
