Sorrento Restorante Italiano for Mothers Day Brunch was very disappointing.  Reservation were made on Open Table for 12noon (3ppl), we arrived 5minutes early fully expecting it to be busy and would need to wait a few minutes, almost 30 minutes later we were sat.  The waiter approached the table quickly and presented menus, they dropped a plate of bulb garlic...

For my birthday yesterday, nothing was more appropriate than a fine dinner in a fine Italian restaurant. The service was impeccable. With Massimo, I had the opportunity to practice my Italian. The dinner was close to perfection. The pianist was amazing although I could not recall him playing any popular Italian songs. There was a lack of authenticity in the... More

My experience with Sorrento has been excellent. I've had several menu items and found them all to be delicious. The service has also been excellent. I have gone with friends and alone. Alone, I like to eat at the bar - They have a piano player in the evenings and that makes it a relaxing atmosphere as well.

This restaurant supersedes all experiences I've had dining at Italian restaurants. The service is excellent. I'm nobody, but I feel like a somebody when I dine here. The food is just delicious!! From the assortments of breads that come with roasted garlic and olive oil, to the entrees like stuffed lamb chops and short ribs - all excellent! I've visited... More

This was a night out with customers Service was fantastic and the food unparalleled This restaurant also is very intimate and suitable for couples or small groups since they offer small rooms with a very relax ambiance The lady pianist played wonderfully Refrain to bring kids since you will not only disturb the other guest but ruin the moment I...

Wonderful service and fantastic meal. Enjoyed a romantic dinner with the girlfriend here after a nearby get together with friends. Popped in not knowing what to expect and was cheerfully surprised. High quality Italian food with excellent service from both the wait staff and front of the house. A bit pricey, but worth it.

We have heard great things about this restaurant and have been waiting for some time to dine here. The wait was well worth it indeed. Previously we had been on a trip to Italy and everything was so good we were hesitant to try any "upscale" Italian back home in fear that it wouldn't live up to the hype. To... More

Great italian food perfect for a date night! The atmosphere is romantic, they had live music and a well stocked bar with great service all around. What more could you ask for?!?
