A Very Pleasant Discovery

We were looking for an Italian restaurant that would please 4 adults and a 9yo and we found it in Sorrento! I made reservations through OpenTable the morning of which was a Sunday. No problems getting the time I wanted and they called and confirmed within the hour. We were running a bit behind... read more

I requested my food w no garlic, onion, butter in it. My sea bass came with fine chopped garlic all over the spinach and on grilled sea bass. Instead, the waiter argued about the present of the garlic, until my boyfriend who have tasted my food validated my complaint. The remade order actually had two halves of whole onion on... More

Great service, amazing "not standard" Italian food, as the evening went on the room got very noisy, which made it hard to carry on a conversation with my wife, and she was directly next to me.

Just left Sorrento and had an excellent experience. Our waiter, Stephen, was quite knowledgeable and provided great service. The food was well-prepared and flavorful. The egg ravioli with truffle was amazing. All-in-all, it's a great spot for a nice night out.

Just had a delightful dinner with my sister and friend. The food was delicious, but equally as important was that every single person working there acted as if we were the most important people to walk in the door that tonight. The hostess checked with us several times to make sure we were enjoying ourselves, the waiter was so warm... More

Very surprised at the small crowd. Nice lunch menu with plenty of choices in all the good groups. Considering beautiful presentation and abundant quantity, meals priced fairly. Veal pic cat was moist and flavorful. Lobster bisque had loads of lobster. Spumoni ice gelato tasty and served with fruit. Overall, good experience, my second here. Wasn't disappointed!

I have visited Sorrento several times now, and each meal has been outstanding. The atmosphere is elegant and old school, neither stuffy nor trendy. The service is impeccable, attentive without being intrusive. And the food? Fabulous. My friend and I had crabcakes and halibut on our most recent visit. Fresh, perfectly prepared and presented. It couldn't have been better. We... More

Took two of my best fiends here at the spur of the moment. We orders the dinner specials, mushroom ravioli, the oso bucco, and house lasagna. Was perfect. What's even better... Not nearly as crowded or noisy as the more well-known chain located on Kirby. Not that we don't like their food, but it's nice to hear oneself think and... More

Great atmosphere and wonderful dining experience. The waiters allow you a nice relaxing dinner. Fresh pasta with nice fragrant light sauces. Fresh bread with olive oil and creative appetizers. We had escargot which were perfect and the scallop shrimp and prosciutto appetizer. Pasta for dinner.
