Good food without 3,699 screaming kids

OK I'm a Dad but it was nice to find a place without a stuffed animal walking around and 1.2 million sugar filled screaming kids. The food was great. Pasta - perfect. Priced right. Good mixed drinks and a descent by-the-glass wine offering. You could tell they used great quality ingredients too.

When I saw advertising for this place I was expecting a family pizza joint but when we got there it was more like romantic Italian place. The low lighting and candle lite dinner was very nice ambiance but the food was sub par and over priced. Service was great.

I read some of the bad reviews on here and on Yelp about Sarento's and I just figured some people are terribly picky. I honestly don't know what kind of Italian food some of these reviewers are used to, but this was just not good food, and it was very pricey! I could have stayed in my resort for the... More

We went with a large group of people and took up 3 long tables. The wait staff were wonderful and the food was really good. I wish this restaurant was in my neighborhoodd!

The lower level dining room caters to large groups and families - while not as elegant as upstairs, the wait staff were very accommodating and considerate of the children; and very polite. Would definitely go again.

Went on a Thursday night in the summer with a group of 7 and got seated right away. The waiter was courteous and professional. The wait for the food was longer than expected but not crazy-long. The kids food was brought out earlier as requested. They have crayons and a place setting for the little ones. I had a late... More

Family of four (boys aged 6 & 9). Staff was a bit obsessive with refilling our water. A bit hovering about. Our waitress disappeared at one point and the manager was then serving us even though our waitress was still there. Restaurant trying to pull off that they are a fancy place veggie fettucini for $19, spaghetti for $15. I... More

Really wonderful food and service---exceeded my expectations. I have visited Sarento's a couple of times before, but this latest visit exceeded my expectations. I forgot how good the food and service can be there. Service was prompt, and course servings were impeccably timed. The restaurant is very accommodating to children's palates, and despite being kid-friendly, it still retains enough charm... More

We heard that this place had a great Friday fish fry so we gave it a try. First of all the fish was not that great...more breading than fish. We ordered an appetizer which came after they brought us our salad. Barely started on the app and the meal came. Never cleared the table before serving us our meals so... More
