Visited Sorrento, one of our favorite Italian restaurants this past weekend & noticed immediately that something drastic had happened. As it turned out the owners ( David & Pasqualina Bikoff) had sold the restaurant to the current property owners recently who had just re-opened the restaurant 3 days earlier. They probably should have waited until they had a full staff... More

Sorrento is definitely one of the better Italian restaurants in Bergen County. Beautifully appointed & serving excellent food this restaurant employs a staff of professional, tuxedo clad waiters one of which may occasionally break into singing classic Italian songs or operatic arias. And on occasion there might be live music by a guitar playing singer.

This place is like the good old days; one you want to go back to and get to know the owner and people working there. Personally, I love byob - spend money on good food and service, not ridiculously marked up vino. Dominic is the maitre'D and very welcoming and service oriented. You want solid italian food go here.

We would not have found this gem without TripAdvisor. Just like another reviewer, they went out and got us a bottle of wine. My wife had Pasta e Fazool and Pappardella. She enjoyed every bite. I had Calamari, which was just okay, and Fusilli, which was out of this world. If we are ever in East Rutherford again we will... More

Fellow at a local liquor store sent us here for a late dinner after a long flight from the west coast. Didn't realize it was BYOB (he could have mentioned it and sold us a bottle), but one of the lovely men on the staff offered to run to a corner store and bought a decent bottle at our request....

The staff were all old school gentlemen. Very accommodating and polite. Nice traditional Italian decor. My dish was ok. I had chicken Marsala and vegetables sauce was a little tasty but chicken was a bit tough. Veggies were good. My mother commented that her dish was a bit tough as well. My girl had salmon in a delicious bourbon sauce.... More

Looking for someplace to celebrate my birthday with my family. Was in the mood for Italian and found some good reviews online for Sorrento's. So glad we went! Roasted figs stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped with prosciutto were delicious! If you are a fan of goat cheese, try these! Calamari were some of the best we've had - melt... More

I had the opportunity to dine at Sorento's on two occasionsl recently, once on a Thursday evening, and the other last Saturday evening. The ambiance is lovely, very elegant, and upscale. Xavier, the manager, and his wait staff are attentive to every detail. Service was impeccable, and the food as well. We were immediately served fresh bread, olives, and bruchetta.... More

My copilot and I stumbled upon this place while looking for another Italian restaurant . The reviews looked promising so we decided to try it. The atmosphere is very upscale, but we did not feel out of place in khakis and nice jeans. We were greeted with fresh bread,bruschetta , oil, cheese, and olives. We ordered the stuffed artichoke appetizer... More
