About Sorrento

Just half an hour from central Liverpool, take a look into Sorrento’s huge open kitchen and you’ll be convinced you’re standing in a trattoria in Italy. It’s here on Three Tuns Lane that Sorrento’s passionate and experienced team of chefs put together the best Italian fare you’re likely to find in Formby. Start by delving into Sorrento’s wide selection of hot and cold antipasti, from palate-cleansing seasonal melon to heart-warming mussels with bacon and a creamy white wine sauce. Of course there is an authentic wood-burning stone oven blasting out superb handmade pizzas, and the range of delicious pastas includes fresh seafood creations and oven-baked home-style favourites like lasagne and cannelloni. The stylish meat dishes truly are special, though, like the traditional Italian al pepe verde, a quality sirloin steak in a creamy green peppercorn sauce that truly melts in your mouth.

Thank you so much to the fabulous team at Sorrento for a wonderful Birthday celebration with my family. The food was excellent from start to finish, we all had a wonderful time. My 85 year old Dad who is not easily impressed thoroughly enjoyed himself and said the Fillet Steak was the best he had in years! High praise indeed ;-) I am already looking forward to our next visit, Sorrento will definitely be our choice for all future celebrations for sure.

The food was delicious and the service, up to dessert, was really good. However, we wanted more drinks after we had finished eating and could not catch the eye of any waiter/waitress, so one of our party had to go to the bar to get someone to take our order. No big deal, but after them being so attentive through the meal we felt like we had been slightly neglected. It would not stop me returning though, the food was lovely. Very noisy though, certainly not a place to go for a romantic meal with your other half.

Amazing staff, food and wine - what more could you ask for? We had the Bruschetta and Pollo Fantasia, the Cotellete di Miaile and a Pizza Diavola, all freshly prepared and such a pleasure to eat!
