It served proper Italian food. A bit pricey but satisfy. I liked its pasta with squid ink sauce. The interior is homy. It is a bit hidden though with only small signage hang on the entrance gate.

The food at il Sorrisso is very good, it's tasty and they've kept their standards. However the food is overpriced and this isn't doing them any favours. I enjoyed my meal but won't go back again for the price.

Wide range to select on menu. Very traditional italian food, good atmosphere and festive. Try the homemade pasta it is very tasty. Service is a bit slow.
