Food was really superior. We had little necks and braised beef ravioli for starters and the osso bucco special with risotto was outstanding. Great desserts as well. Our server was very knowledgeable about wine and the menu and gave us great advice without being too pushy. All around a great experience. Will definitely be back!

My girlfriend and I were in town for NYE. We booked well in advance, as we knew it would be busy. I had been years prior, and wanted my girlfriend to experience it. It certainly did not disappoint. Service and food were both excellent. A very warm and comfortable setting. Just great!

This place is full of die hard try hards. Loud and brash and a big barn like room where everyone can check everyone else out. Subtle it ain't !! The staff are brisk in demeanour. The food is good but boy is it it cheap- for the price charged it ought to be good!!! Would not rush back !

I've eaten at Sorellina each time I've traveled to Boston on business. It's right across the street from my hotel and so very convenient. It's also just a block from the Copley T station. First time there I had the infamous meatball appetizer, which lives up to the hype. Very very good. Followed it with the roast salmon, which at... More

I can't even begin to say how wonderful the food was and how amazing the staff were. We had a well behaved two year old and were truly scared. The veal was to die for, the eggplant rollini, the tagliatelle, the veal chop, the desserts - just wonderful. My go to restaurant from this day forward!

I dine out quite often, and am sort of fussy about fine dining. When not traveling, I visit restaurants all over Massachusetts and NH, and last week I brought one of my friends down to Boston to enjoy an evening at Sorellina.....(I can't cook, but I know how to eat, and it's a sister restaurant to Mistral) Sorellina is so...

Three of us went for dinner on a Sunday night, place was busy, host staff were professional and friendly, seated right away, nice table by a window, noise was not a problem and was at a level to be expected with a full restaurant.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
