Sorrento's Ristorante at Tsillan Cellar's owner, Dr. Bob Jankelson, admits that the food of Italy captured him before he developed his interest in wine. Dozens of teaching trips to Italy instilled an appreciation of Italian cuisine paired with food friendly wine shared with friends and family. The same meticulous attention to detail evident in Tsillan Cellars stunning Italian architecture and grounds, transfers to a kitchen that brings world class dining to the shores of Lake Chelan. While Sorrento Ristorante is the perfect setting for a romantic evening of dining with that special person it is also the perfect venue to entertain business colleagues, friends, or have a warm family friendly dining experience. In winter, the inviting Italian fireplace and panoramic views of Lake Chelan and snow clad mountains blend with award winning food and wine to leave indelible memories. Outstanding ambiance, food, wine and service- four reasons Sorrento's Ristorante at Tsillan Cellars was named OpenTable Top 100 Scenic Restaurants in America in 2014.

Beautiful view

The family and I always dine at Sorrento's whenever we vacation in Chelan. The food is very delicious. I ordered the mushroom risotto and added tiger prawns for $8. I was disappointed with the portion size. It was so small I left hungry and that was in addition to sharing a Cesar salad with my... read more

I have visited Sorrento's twice now, hoping beyond hope that the first time was just a mistake. The view is wonderful from this winery. They restaurant takes fill advantage of this view. With this said, the wait staff is horrible. It will take at least 20 mins once you are seated for them to come to the table to acknowledge... More

Our family always enjoys eating here. Food is always amazing and the kids love feeding the koi as we waited for our table. It was a bit too warm for our 3 month old since the restaurant is outdoors but we knew that going into it.

Awesome service! Friendly staff! Amazing view and beautiful setting! Great food! Our favorite! We visited this restaurant for the first time last year & were very impressed! This year we brought my mother-in-law and aunt who was visited from France! They were loved this place as much as we did!

This is a high end restaurant just outside Chelan. It is up on a hill with a gorgeous view of the lake in the distance. It has a beautifully landscaped courtyard area. The food was very good, but it is a pricey restaurant. It was over $100 for two dinners, and we didn't have any drinks or wine. I would... More

For years my wife and I would drive by Sorrento's on the way into Chelan and say "we should go there for dinner sometime." Well, this past week we finally did and now regret passing it by. The décor is outstanding. It has the look and feel of an Italian courtyard, with great views of the lake. The interior dining... More

If you desire one of the best views in Lake Chelan for dinner then you will not be disappointed by this lookout. That's where the excitement ends. One server for wine. One server for food... And they don't work for the "same place" or communicate at all. This is where the entire experience goes bad fast. The food is good.... More
