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.

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary dinner here. Our server, Roslyn, was amazing. She asked why we were dining with them and we told them for our first anniversary and she offered us a complimentary chocolate moose. Her knowledge of the wine and food was excellent as well. She was so convincing we even joined the wine club!... More

Sorrento's authentic, Tuscan cuisine prepared with simple, fresh ingredients was superb! Reminded me of dining in Italy with the decor and open yet cozy dining area. Tsillan Cellars wine, of course, with pairing suggestions on the menu. My new favorite in Chelan.

I had the best pasta verdure--no meat but fresh vegetables lightly oiled and wonderfully seasoned. Another had a pork rib steak with fig reduction sauce--remarking how delicious it was. Food can be accompanied by the wine from the winery next door Tsillan Cellars).

Have been here 3 or 4 times in the past few years whenever we come to Chelan. The winery is really great, fantastic location overlooking the lake . Great Tuscan architecture and really good food. Good for both brunch and dinner.

It's a nice location and it held promise.....but failed to deliver all we expected. The menu is fairly limited and surprisingly uninspired. There wasn't any "big" flavor to be found and the wines similarly were lacking in complexity and were decidedly young....and therefore couldn't push the meal to a higher level It's a beautiful location and the service was good.....but...

The location, view and atmosphere at this restaurant is great and you feel like you're having a special meal without having to pay the earth for it. Their wine is great and they charge the same as you pay to buy a bottle from the tasting room so that's a bonus as well. My wife ordered the Cannelloni, it was... More

All 10 of us ate at this wonderful restaurant and we all rated it extremely high. It definitely should be on your list of places to eat when visiting Lake Chelan. They have a tasting room as well. The food was outstanding -- I think we all had something different. They offered appetizers that you could add pasta and vegetables... More
