Ghost city
Sep 2017 • Family
Came back just for Biletti shop and one independent cloth shop (which is also closed now...) and found out that from the last year 15-20÷ of the shops now are bearily opened 5-10÷....
Already last year looked sad, but now... We will not come back anymore for sure.

Not worth the time.

So sad to see this decline in such a beautiful setting. Apparently not enough sales to keep stores open. A shame because the buildings and layout are perfect, but now feels like a ghost town.

Perfect location for shooting a post-apocalyptic film

When this mall opened a few years back, it was quite a place. Today, it is dying. No landscaping maintenance is being done. Debris and dying vegetation and weeds about. Half the stores are closed. The rest that are open are bargain-basement no-name stores. We went here in the summer; almost none of these shops have their air conditioning on. One in particular also had all the lights turned out, presumably to save on the electric bill. I walked in, turned on my heels three seconds within entering and left.

There are two kitchen goods stores here that are worth a visit. There is a bar/gelateria/trattoria, I do not know how it stays open. I guess the locals know about it. There is no Nike store. There are a couple or three stores with women's clothing that might be worth a visit to find a bargain - again, nothing that is name brand will be found here.

The sole store that brought a smile to my face was the Linde chocolate store. It is wonderfully air conditioned and smells delightful. The staff are very friendly and helpful (as opposed to most of the rest of the stores, where the staff are mostly surly and indifferent and just there to draw a paycheck). It has a coffee and gelato bar. The gelato is just average, but good enough for a warm summer day. And of course the Linde swiss chocolate is divine.

Getting in and out of here - including the parking garage - is very confusing. There is a dearth of signage to conduct you from the freeway exit to the mall. You will drive past a couple of industrial or farm workshops on the way.

If you are looking for a nice outlet mall, there is one up the A1 at the Val di Chiana exit, but I have not been there to see how it compares to this pathetic mall. But the best one is undoubtedly at Barberino, north of Florence and also accessible from the A1. This is a wonderful outdoor outlet mall, beautifully landscaped and full of name brand stores like Nike and Polo. It's quite a distance from Soratte, but if your journey takes you near Florence and you want to do some outlet shopping, I highly recommend it.

It's a lovely place to go

Despite many poor reviews, actually, I don't find this outlet that bad.
Yes, maybe it hasn't got many fancy designers shops, maybe it hasn't got any nice restaurants, and maybe the prices were a bit high as well. But I still find this outlet special because it hasn't got many people - it was like a ghost shopping centre when I got there but it was lovely and peaceful. I had all the time in the world to visit each shop. If you pay attention, there are still a lot of interesting shops that offer high quality cloths/ shoes. The outlet outdoor spaces are very nice as well, especially when it is sunny! I particularly like the central plaza. It offers something special and it will suit people who don't like crammed with crowded tourists and would just want a half day out somewhere outside Rome.

Don't Go to this Outlet Mall!
May 2013 • Couples
This was, by far, the worst outlet shopping experience I have ever had!
Now, normally I would be shopping in North America, so I do not know if this is typical of Italy, or Europe generally, but the prices were very high and there were no interesting shops. Feeling frustrated, I started to observe the other shoppers and noticed that very little buying was actually going on. The atmosphere is pleasant; the kids' play area and the restasurants were all busy, but if it's an "outlet shopping experience" you are looking for - give this place a miss!
I did have a nice lunch, but this was not my goal in attending at an outlet mall.
Another thing we noticed, which we found quite funny in retrospect, the signage leading drivers to this mall is EXCELLENT, unlike the rest of the signage in Italy which we found to be non-existent or frustrating at best. The signs lead you right to.....the worst shopping experience ever! What a let down.

Horrible experience

Worst outlet ever - they have nothing interesting beside the NIKE factory store like any other mall - I recommend to seek elsewhere if you want to shop

Great deals, not crowded, average outlet, nothing fancy
Soratte outlet is a typical european outlet, which means - not much by american standards. But still, they have good prices on clothes and stuff for regular people. Nothing fancy, but good deals on italian medium range brands. A reasonable supply of lunch restaurants. It is hardly worth a detour, but if you pass it on your way to or from Rome on the A1, it's a nice shopping stop. I've been there three times and the place has not been crowded. Best time to visit would be on a weekday, preferably during the summer sale that usually starts around july 2nd.
