Never written a review before, but I promised Franco I'd spread the word... My first time here with my family. Was made to feel very special. Great food AND the owner / chef is Italian!! Rare these days.

We booked a table at Il Sorriso for an after-show meal at 10:15 pm. Unfortunately our show was late finishing and we didn't get there until 10:45pm, but Franco still made us very welcome and cooked-up a fabulous meal for the three of us. What is amazing is that despite the fact that at this time we were the only people in the restaurant there was still a great atmosphere. Great food, very nice wine and a fantastic ambience.


I would highly recommend the Piatti del Giorno (daily specials) - I had liver pate & carpacio of beef followed by a very tasty filet of lamb. Following a conversation with Franco, I think that next time I will have something with mushrooms in as these appear to be a speciality of his!

Fantastic - Italian run restaurant.
No nonsense
Your go there for the food staff, not the location or decor.
Well worth putting on your regular visit list as it''s fantastic and reasonable.

I found this place on the web at www.ilsorriso.co.uk. I've been in London a few years now and have been exploring. Il Sorriso is the first no-nonsense Italian place I've found. My waiter was the proprietor (Franco). He took me and my friend through the specials board and advised us to try the roasted noisettes of lamb with Porcini sauce and a bottle of Chianti Villa Antinori. The food was excellent and in very generous proportions UNLIKE so many other places I've tried where the description was better than the dish and the portions were so small you're left wanting. Good to find an ACTUAL Italian restaurateur serving ACTUAL un-anglicised Italian dishes for once.

I found out about the restaurant on the web. The spiel on the site wasn't wrong. The food was outstanding, both in terms of quality of produce & authenticity. I had risotto with truffles to start. The proprietor, Franco, having persuaded me to try one of his delicious seasonal dishes from the daily specials board recommended I drink Pino e Toi (white). For my main course of Scallopa di Vitello Trasteverina (Veal with Artichoke in a garlic & white wine sauce) I drank a Feudi Di San Gregorio 1997 (Taurasi). Franco managed to slip in a few grilled Porcini on the side at my request. This was an extremely expensive meal, but the menu has many moderately priced dishes on it. The average price per head is aprox 20 - 25 including wine. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants to experience real Italian food & hospitality in W1
