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!

This place is away from the downtown crush in a strip mall, so parking is easy and that's a plus. The entrance room had a faux fireplace going, which made the tiny room uncomfortably hot, on a day when the temperature was near 90. What was that about? Inside, we asked to have the fan turned down, as it was... More

Large selection of Italian food including baked, pastas, meats, seafood. We had the eggplant parmesan and veal picata. Both dishes were good. Fresh warm bread & 2 sides for each meal. Seemed reasonably priced ($18-$24 for dinner entre) at least for the beach area. The ambiance is nothing special - tables, chairs, and dim lighting. The service was prompt and... More

I love this place, however, every time I go, I say I am going to try something different, but then I change my mind and get my stand by which is Fettuccine Alfredo with Shrimp, it is so good. You get at least 6 large shrimp and and bunch of little ones. The Alfredo is def homemade. The restaurant is... More

Had dinner there last night after so many raves about how good this restaurant was. We were sorely disappointed. It was just an average restaurant, with a rating of "C". Nothing there to rave about except that the portions were large, although that is not a good thing these days. The service was just adequate, nothing special. My wife had... More
