We were going to a concert and decided to call the restaurant to see if they'd make some take out for us. Yes they would. We asked for an antipasta platter and did we get one. It had prosciutto, hard salami, three types of cheese, pepperoni, honeydew, raspberries, olives, butternut squash and two whole heads of roasted garlic with olive... More

Sorrento's is by far our favorite Italian Restaurant in Houston. It has a small intimate atmosphere, yet flexible enough to provide private areas for a variety of functions. The food is fantastic, they have a great burata salad, their homemade lasagna is my go to dish there, but there is nothing there that disappoints. We are there at least every... More

We had a very nice quiet meal. Blood Orange Martinis and Risotta! Quiet and Romantic, perfect for couples!

We celebrated a friend's 25th birthday here so i reserved a table for 6 of us. They were nice enough to provide us a nice table in a private room. I told them that we needed a cake, so at the end of our dinner they gave my friend her cute bday cake while the pianist played the bday song... More

The four of us had a great dinner at Sorrento. The fantastic bread basket and delicious roasted garlic starter were a wonderful beginning to our meal. The appetizers were great all around, except that the beef for the carpaccio was sliced too thick. The risotto prepared in the cheese wheel iwass an elegant touch. Mains were excellent: filet mignon (unfortunately... More

We had a GREAT dinner and will definitely go back again. As others have stated it is on the expensive side but the food was absolutely GREAT. Most of the food dishes wasn't overly expensive but bottles of wines were pretty pricey. We had 1/2 bottle ($35) of their blended wine which was very good. The 1\2 bottle choices was... More

I had wanted to be cheesy and "relive our engagement" and found choose this solely because of its name. We got engaged in Sorrento, Italy and the restaurant was named Sorrento. We didn't expect anything extravagant, but it was worth the drive. We live in the Woodlands so we usually just go to steakhouses nearby, but this was a special... More

We picked Sorrento for our anniversary brunch. Lovely decor, not too crowded and fantastic attentive staff. The piano player was a great addition. Everyone's meal starts out with your choices from a beautiful selection of breads and muffins...all delicious. For entrees, I had the frittata with goat cheese and basil and hubby had crab cakes Benedict. Delicious and wonderful presentation.... More

Seated 1 hour after reservation and then waited 15 or so minutes for a cocktail / wine request. Appetizers served by unknowing staff who asked "who ordered what"? Similar service at main course. A shame the food (actually quite good) could not offset the shoddy service. There are too many stores in Houston at this price point that care about... More

I just realized that I have never reviewed this restaurant, even though they are our "go-to" place. Wonderful place for dinner, very nice ambience, great for a romantic dinner. Excellent food, excellent service. When we want a really nice meal with no surprises, this is our pick. Lovely breads, best fish preparation I have had in this town, very good... More
