Sorrento Italian Restaurant

Sorrento Formby and Orrell Italian restaurants are owned and run by Luciano Cappiello with his wife and daughter. Sorrento is very much a family run business.


Luciano first came to England from Sorrento, Italy in 1987. He began working as a waiter in Liverpool, later moving to Southport where he worked as a chef and waiter.


Luciano opened the first Sorrento restaurant in Orrell in 1998.
After the great success of the Orrell restaurant, a new Sorrento restaurant in Formby was opened in September 2009. Sorrento Formby was completely refurbished and redesigned in a modern and contemporary style.


At Sorrento, we believe in the importance of using only the very best quality ingredients, sourced locally and directly from Italy.
Our food is authentically Italian, freshly cooked and prepared to the highest Italian culinary standards.
