The Most Amazing Meal in Boston

If you visit Boston's Back Bay you must have dinner at Sorellina. The food and the atmosphere is like no other. The Kobe meatballs melt in your mouth. The food presentation is 5 star as is the service. I recommend reservations and dressing up. I was on business travel the last time I ate there... read more

This a slightly pretentious high-end faux-Italian restaurant. The food is quite good; I had the saltimbocca which bore little resemblance to the traditional Italian recipe but nevertheless was good quality meat and well presented. The desserts were excellent. The wine list is both extensive and expensive; the list of Italian reds in particular was impressive, but most were at eye-watering... More

Very fancy Resto but very good food and atmosphere. Dress to impress as it's not casual. Will need reservations and would definitely visit again.

Great place with great food and a great wine list to boot! Actually, it was so good I went back a few nights later. Between the two nights, I had an Arugula salad, Salmon, Maccheroncelli (Wagyu meatballs) and Molten lava cake. The waiter was outstanding with great recommendations one my first visit and on my second, chilled out at the... More

Started with a drink at the bar a little early for our reservation. Good drinks and bar staff. Was brought to our table on time and had one of our best dinners in the City of Boston. All the pasta dinners were the Best, veal was as good. Wait staff is very attentive but don't over do it. Sat down... More

Great location in the Back Bay. Had heard really good things so we gave it a try. Service was crisp and professional. Food overall was very good but not spectacular. We might have gone in with big expectations however. Wine list was quite thorough. To be fair, I will go back... Just feel as though there are better choices and... More

The bellman at Copley Square hotel recommended this restaurant to us and we are so glad he did! The service was outstanding. The food was incredible! We had oysters (best I've ever had), Tuna tartare, fettuccine with mushrooms and truffle, and maccheroncelli with Waygu meatballs. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. Highly recommended!!

I love the Columbus hospitality groups other restaurants like Mistral and Mooo so I was excited to try this place. While nothing was bad I just didn't like it as much as the other CHG restaurants I have tried before.

We dined at Sorellina during Restaurant Week and it was just as good as previous dinners there with friends and colleagues. The ambience was modern, cheerful and elegant. The salmon and rib eye main courses were superb, and the desserts were our favorites in a long time - the panna cotta, lemon souffle, and chocolate mousse. The wine list is... More
