Description: Though it appears very small from the outside, it has two very inviting dining rooms, the main room with a small grand piano, beautiful furniture and decor. The range of menu items is extensive, though very reasonably priced, especially considering it includes a replenishable bread basket, delicious salad. The food, I had the Seafood Cannelloni, others had Veal Marsala, Fettucine Alfredo, Seared Scallops with Coscou/Risotto. Everything was absolutely delicious and servings very generous. Staff was excellent. 'Le Sorelle' means 3 Sisters and is actually run by one of the 14 granddaughters in the family. This restaurant is easily handicapped accessible (as was one of our group in a wheelchair) and the staff is more than accomodating. Don't let the fact that his restaurant is at the end of a little strip mall discourage you, it is an excellent choice for dinner. Also, it is a BYOB

I enjoyed this local place. However did not seem to be interested in serving single women. More for mixed couples. The food was delightful. I did not like their salad but most folks do. No options.

Food is excellent. Choices are many. Atmosphere is casual but elegant. Love the salad! Go there for special occasions.

My experience at Sorelle (no Le) was very good from a food standpoint. The service was mediocre and the hostess did not smile at all. We did have a reservation for 4 people and were promptly seated (5:15 pm) although we would have preferred a table in the main dining room which was almost empty at that time. We sat... More

First, Trip Advisor needs to update this restaurant's name. It is no longer Le Sorelle, but simply Sorelle. We had a birthday dinner for 3 couples at Sorelle on a recent Friday night. We had a great table in the corner of the dining area. Although our seating was great, maneuvering to the restroom was not easy as tables were... More

This is the third time I ate at Le Sorelle and the food was good every time. Each time I went it was with a different group of people and they all loved it. I saw the reviews about the unfriendly staff but I thought that our waitress was friendly. It's BYOB.

We had patronized Le Sorelle several times in the past and were very pleased , especially with the Early Bird special. After one or two disappointing meals, we stopped going. We decided to give it a try again this evening with another couple. We were, unfortunately, met with a less-than-enthusiastactic hostess whom I believe to be the owner, and I... More

The Owner is extremely rude and her and most of her staff that mostly consists of family members should take some classes in customer service. My two experiences were ok at best and the first one was better then the second. Niether experience though is why Im calling the owner rude. My mother in law walked in the other night... More

Great prices, delicious food! A girlfriend that lives an hour out of the way came to meet me here, and we have been back a few times! Their clams, house salad, and entrees are absolutely delicious and set in a great luxe atmosphere (for being in a strip mall; you'd never know it)
