I visited Sorrento recently and was glad that I decided to pick this restaurant. The food is great, staff extremely friendly. The menu are fixed, but the staff is willing to improvise and bring back favorite dishes that are not in the menu. The quantity is plenty, service is quick and entrees are sumptuous. getting there is also easier as... More

We were looking for a restaurant in Bethesda that had good food and lighting, wasn't overly noisy, and had easy access for our 90+ year old uncle, who has a walker. That is a very hard set of requirements to fill in Bethesda! We had a very good experience overall at Sorrento and will definitely go back on one of... More

Obviously overbooked and understaffed. Waited an hour for drinks another hour for food. One waiter tried hard but couldn't handle the amount of tables. Food when delivered was fair at best. Never cleared the table or asked if we wanted coffee or dessert. When I called and taked to the manager the next day, he wanted to make it right... More

Once again, we had a wonderful meal, here. Each of our party of 4 ordered different dishes and each was terrific. The grilled salmon served over home-made pasta with eggplant was exquisite--one of the best salmon dishes I've ever had anywhere. We also had an appetizer--prosciutto with mozzarella with greens--and a complimentary dessert of tiramisu and a second delectable pastry.... More

My family and I have been here on about five occasions, and every time is as good as the first, which was fantastic. This is a small, family-owned restaurant, where, every time we have been there, one of the owners visits our table to welcome us and ask us how everything is. Classic Italian food that always hits the spot.

In a recent stay at Bethesda I tried several restaurants in the area, and while I had good experiences overall in the places I ate, this place stood out as the best restaurant I tried during my visit. Everything we had was very good, the calamari, the main course, the ice cream spumoni, all were excellent, in particular, the Capellini... More

Friday, May 31 at 6 PM, we arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation for a party of 6. There was no one else seated at the time. We waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for our food to arrive. While the food is good, the service and attitude of the wait staff was enough for me to never go... More
