Friendly

The tables are small but you do have enough space between tables to move around. I had seafood gnocchi which was so delicate it melted in my mouth. My partner had pizza which was thin crust with heaps of topping.

We had dinner here one night while in town for work. When you walk i n you see the decor is dated & has the feel of the early nineties. The menu is huge, but we were disappointed to be told that they don't make their own pastas. Jamie Oliver's Italian cookbook could inspire this menu & breathe life back... More

Been to this restaurant several times now. The food is nice. It is solidly prepared and served Italian. The pizza is well done. Sorbello's is let down by its service and atmosphere. On all occasions when visiting we have come to find that the table we had reserved was not yet ready and we had to wait in a tiny... More

Have been here several times. Always make a booking and this restaurant never has the table ready when we get there. Food here is always adequate but the atmosphere and service are major let downs.

We came across this place by accident on our first night in Mackay. The food was just delicious - we all had a variety of dishes and loved them all. We enjoyed it all so much we came back again the next night! The food, staff and atmosphere were all really good. We would make this a place to go... More

We went there because of the good reviews and had three different pizzas...unfortunately, all of them were only average at best. The dough does not seem to be home-made and I also do not think that they have a wood fire oven. The pasta dishes next table looked good though...so if you go there you might try these.

The staff are always very friendly and keen to assist and the food has never disappointed. The Italian food menu is huge and caters to a variety of tastes and preferences.

This is a hit and miss. They are always accommodating and take bookings later than 8pm which is great. The cocktails are good but nothing really innovative. Sometimes the food is really amazing and other times it feels like its slapped together.

Went to Sorbello's a few weeks ago in a group and the food was up to their usual great standard, desert was lovely. We had a great night and they let us pay the bill with 4 payments, greatly appreciated.
