This is a nice little (14 tables) place where you will get a good meal. We recommend for you to make a reservation. You can ask them to prepare something for you in a different way than how it is presented on the menu. Prices are a little over average, but the dished do taste to be freshly made. One... More

Mmmmm. Our second time back to this wonderful hidden gem. Friendly fast service. But we went on a night that wasn't crowded (July 5 - guess everyone else was crowded in Rehoboth to watch the fireworks). Started with a Caesar salad. It was a large portion, easily split to share with 2 or even 3 people. Slightly sweet lemony dressing... More

The food here is usually excellent, especially the entrees. Try the pescatore! Only complaint is the caesar dressing-too sweet and not freshly made. Nothing fancy but very good.

Good Sunday afternoon spot for a family birthday party. Great value, lots of selections, something for everyone. Unhurried pleasant service from Ryan. And of course, Mara will sing, if you ask her!

I had been aware of this restaurant for years. I never knew anybody who had been there before. Until it was brought up at a party and it seemed I was the only person who hadn't been there. I tried it the next day and was very impressed. I had the linguine with clams that was absolutely delicious. Everybody else... More

This is the second time to dine at Villa Sorrento. The restaurant is in a strip mall with plenty of parking. The restaurant feels like a neighborhood restaurant, good food and service, and not a lot of amenities. The food is very good, the service is also very good. Prices are what you would expext in a seashore town, liquor... More

We went to Villa Sorrento shortly after moving to Lewes to try and we also like patronizing the local restaurants. I have Italian heritage and also lived in Italy for a few years, so I may have the expectations set high for Italian restaurants in the US. We ordered Ravioli and Chicken Alfredo neither of which were spectacular. The portions... More

My favorite Local Italian Restaurant. The owner Maura prepared another wonderful meal. Took two friends who live locally who had never been there. They loved it! Maura, although busy in the kitchen preparing the meals made time to come out and sing in her angelic voice to the patrons. Always a treat to eat here. Recommend it highly. 5 Stars!
