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...

This is an exceptional place. The salmon for lunch is to die for. They have very good food and a very good business lunch location

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

This was my first visit and the restaurant itself is beautiful...very upscale. It is a good restaurant if you want to make a good impression. As others have mentioned, they bring around an enormous basket of assorted breads for you to chose from and they are very good. When you are seated, you are given a dish of olive oil... More

This is by far the best Italian, as well as one of the best over-all restaurants in Houston. Customer service is only surpassed by the fine food. I eat here quite a lot, and have never had a bad, or even mediocre dish. Try it, and you will be extremely happy.

Sorrento's is located on the east end of Westheimer close to midtown. The restaurant atmosphere is comfortable and "homey" as the restaurant is presented in an old Montrose home. It has a intimate atmosphere, yet allows for large groups and private dining. The background music offered by the pianist is a bit too loud for my taste. It had a... More

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
