Came here because they had one of my favorite dishes on the menu, Linguine and Clams. The food was great, prices were reasonable. Their dinner rolls are some of the best we've ever had. Our server though was not very pleasant and honestly made us feel like we were bothering her. She took so long to come back to check... More

SORRENTOS is an outstanding restaurant. For 25 years, we have had the opportunity of dining at this incredible establishment. The hundreds of meals, that we savored were all cooked by the owner- Mr. Luciano Russo. Phenomenally talented and equally diligent- I enjoy every bite. We highly recommend sharing the appetizers -- just close your eyes and pick. That is how... More

Knowing we would be in Jacksonville we made the decision to try Sorrento after many, many years. We had the fish (which that night was grouper) and linguine with mixed seafood. Grouper was a little on the skimpy side, but very good, as was the vegetable. Calamari, shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams were very well prepared in an excellent light tomato... More

We were in Jacksonville for a weekend getaway and wanted Italian food. Luckily we found this great place. Don't be fooled by the location in a strip mall.The food is amazing, the service is wonderful and the atmosphere is very nice. We loved the calamari and the shrimp/scallop linguine was super delicious. The house dressing is a yummy creamy Italian... More

Came here with friends for dinner as we were in Jacksonville for the night. Our server was attentive. The food was good, but a little too much cheese in the dishes we ordered. A very cozy & somewhat romantic atmosphere. Overall positive experience.

Tucked away in a strip mall, you wouldn't think this restaurant was "all that". But it is! Their fish is the best ever. I love their fettucini alfredo but otherwise, we don't go there for their pastas. They offer fresh fish daily in a number of preparations. I love the positano with spinach. We think of this as our "secret... More

Went here with a friend because our normal Italian neighborhood restaurant was closed. We sure were glad we did! The house dressing is excellent and the bread is just about the best I've had anywhere. Both of our pasta dishes were very tasty, and the service was just right. Nice atmosphere.

This longtime southside favorite is a one item menu for us. We've eaten here since it was opened by Italians 30 some years ago, then enlarged and run by Russians with the good sense to keep the old recipes. The strip center setting isn't inviting, and the seating areas are frequently deafeningly loud. The service quality is variable. We always... More

We have been eating here since the early 80s and it's still the best italian food in Jax. The chicken positano supreme is unbeatable as is everything else they serve. They have great service in an old Italian style atmosphere. The prices are surprisingly reasonable for the top notch, quality dishes they serve. The house salad dressing is a must... More
