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.

We went to Sorellina for restaurant week . The food was great and the staff were wonderful. The inside of this place is very pretty with nice lighting and a nice atmosphere. I do suggest you try this place for a special outing.

We were visiting Boston and the restaurant came highly recommended. We got seated quickly however, the service was slow, the choices were average and the food was definitely not worth the price.

Valentine's day can be tricky at any restaurant. Add to that the latest blizzard in Boston.... The restaurant was packed but SO WORTH IT!!!! The polpo (grilled octopus) was to die for. The veal Milanese was cooked to perfection. Great wine list and wonderful sides. The staff is very helpful and I cannot wait to return again! A MUST DINE.

One of Boston's really great restaurants. We have been to numerous expensive places in town and I have found Sorellina to be the best of the bunch. Service is perfect, the restaurant itself beautiful, the tables well spaced, wine list extensive (and expensive), the food perfectly prepared. This is our third trip and each experience is better than the last.... More

Food is terrific. Design is great. Staff is great. Our granddaughter is a Senior at BU and this has been part of our tradition twice or three times/year and it's always a treat. Between us all, we've eaten through the menu and everything is wonderful. Close your eyes and pick.....or just have them bring you dinner. You can't go wrong.... More
