Fabulous food

If your looking for fresh authentic Italian food that's value for money then this place is worth it. The Veal Marsala was amazing

Sorbello's always have great meals, but if you are after a quiet romantic dinner it may not be the restaraunt for you. Because of there popularity Sorbello's has lots of tables in their dining area and the lighting is a little on the bright side. Service is always good and the menu has many choices.

Once again Sorbellos has served up a bad experience. Previously at lunch I had to PHONE in order to receive table service. Tonight I ordered Gamberi Prawns with the rice, risotto not pasta.

The restaurant is a local Italian favourite, so naturally the food is consistently good and delicious! Caters for small or large groups with a separate dining area for private parties. Only downfall it is very noisy to hear across your table, some sound absorbers would be great! BUT the food usually outweighs this obstacle!

Sorbello's is one of the most talked about restaurants in Mackay. If you ask anyone where to eat, one of the most common responses is Sorbello's. Both my partner and I are chefs and I received my training in Italian cuisine both nationally and internationally. Sorbello's is an over rated so called Italian Restaurant that massacres such greats as Cabonara.... More

Have dinned at Sobello's on a few occasions. Food quality very average.Service very rushed, made to feel as though staff want you to hurry up and eat and go. Won't be going back.

When I am paying above $25.00 for carbonara I don't expect to get crappy presided thin strips of ham. It's a shame and the pasta was like it had been sitting in the pot for a long time.
