La Sorella has been a Naperville staple for almost 20 years. The food is always delicious, the menu changes every 2 weeks. The food is italian, but the fish is always fresh and the chef prepares each fish dish perfectly. They also have delicious soups, appetizers, and pasta dishes. The lobster bisque (when it's on the menu) is decadently topped... More

My wife and I dined in the outdoor area in the alley next to the restaurant. May not sound inviting. The area is covered, cozy, has a mural on wall facing and most enjoyable. We had soup, salad, main course and desert. All were well prepared and excellent. Service was also excellent with our very helpful and charming waitress supported... More

A nice Italian restataurant heavy on the use of cream in their pasta sources. There were no non cream based sauces on the menu. We enjoye the minestrone soup is was light and not overburdened with beans. My wife enjoyed a roasted chicken and gave it an above average thumbs up. I enjoyed my pasta fresh ricotta over a cold...

Like the food at La Sorella. Not a spot for quiet dining; very noisy. Parking can also be a problem with any restaurant in downtown Naperville.

I found myself near Naperville visiting friends. We all decided to go out to dinner and found La Sorella nearby. The food and the service were great. I had the chicken sissa and it was very tasty. My wife had the spicy shrimp and it was also very good. Our fiends love their the chicken parmesan. The pasta sides were... More

I've been there many times because I live so close. Great food, a little cramped for space, but loud. Not the place for a quiet, intimate conversation. I always get the half roasted chicken and my wife gets the salmon. Awesome!

Living in Arizona can be challenging for food choices if you lived in Illinois for a long time. This restaurant had great atmosphere and food. It was so good to be back in Illinois and get pasta made from scratch ( maybe it wasn't but I really liked it). About 12 of us for high school graduation party. The place... More

Naperville, with it.s outdoor restaurants and vibe on a Saturday afternoon and evening is unique , This Italian restaurant has its own character. It's in a 2 storied building, with tables close to each other, and can get noisy due to the acoustics. The food, though, makes it worth it. The Pollo Arrosto alla Romana is the best of the... More
