We had a day out at Crosby Beach looking at the fab Antony Gormly statues, headed to Formby and came across 'Sorrento'. We had a fantastic time. The restaurant is smart, comfortable and spotless. The service is fantastic and the food is fresh and absolutely delicious. See you again!

We both enjoyed a lovely meal in great relaxed surroundings last night and the food and wine were excellent. Our waiter Francesco was a charming young man who couldn't do enough for us and the manager Luciano even came over for a friendly chat. Would recommend this place to anyone, you won't be disappointed.
