Sorellina, the 'kid sister' of acclaimed Chef Jamie Mammano's Mistral provides an intense look at regional Italian food with a modern twist. Sorellina's wine list focuses on some hidden Italian gems paired with an international selection creating an effortless opportunity to explore the unknown.

Fabulous Place all around!

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... read 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

My two trips to Sorellina were both excellent. The large, wide open dining room near Copley Square is perfect for a leisurely date or a gathering with friends. Despite the size, don't expect conversations to be private, and you may find yourself bumping into your neighbor as you get up to use the restroom. Service is very professional and pleasant,...

The risotto was disappointing. Besides that, everything was just terrific. It is indeed, as considered, one of Boston's finest. Great style and decor, beautiful place. Expensive.

This was a short visit for drinks before we had a reservation somewhere else. It had been a little while since our last visit, but the place still looks as good as it ever was. The bartenders were nice, but were very busy. Our drinks were excellent as always. We were sad to see the little lounge area at the... More

I think this place is a bit over-pricey, but the food is original and freshly prepared. If you're looking for ambiance and attentive service, this will be a good choice.
