Whenever I want to impress friends with truly fantastic food, this is the restaurant I bring them to enjoy. The atmosphere is more of a mom and pop shop attempt at fine dining but the food is what you come here to experience. Due to my Italian grandmother's cooking, I'm very picky when it comes to red sauce. When served,... More

This is a real gem, not a chain, authentic Italian restaurant. We dined there many many times over the years and the quality of food is always outstanding, The staff is friendly and, contrary to the previous review, the owner, Luciano Russo has been cooking this amazing food for over 25 years. The staff is very friendly. This is the... More

If this were my first visit, I'd never return. The reason so many people have made this a long time favorite were the "francese dishes". This time, the snapper francese was definitely not snapper and the sauce lacked any lemon kick. The veal was soggy without crispness. The marinara with meat sauce on the pasta was tasteless. As always, the... More

Have been coming here for over 18 years, very delicious homemade Italian entrees. The Snapper Francese is delicious, also the eggplant parmigiana and fettuccine Alfredo is on point. Great wine selections too. The bread could have used some butter, I remember that being better in the past, the salads were good. Nice atmosphere, good service, fair prices.

We have been coming to Sorrento's for years. It has always been a special place. But this time it was mediocre. The bread is not the same, salad is not the same, and the entree was just mediocre. It is clear that the quality has declined with new ownership. This is sads

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
