Do we at last have a good Italian restaurant in TC! Looks like it. Sorellina was busy. Festive atmosphere. Great place for a large group. Generous portions. Tasty food. Lovely wine. Good service. Ahhhhh....lets go have some pasta!

“A good Italian dining experience in Traverse City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We ate at Sorellina on a Saturday. It was packed but we were quickly seated. Our server was very good and attentive. It was a little loud due to the crowd. However the food was great. The bruschetta was the best we ever had. Would like to return on a week night.

“Tasty food at a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We visited during the off season so there was no wait, which was nice. There was a nice selection on the menu. I had the chicken piccata. It was very good. The serving was enough for 2 people.

“Great romantic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I ate there last Friday night and were happily surprised by the ambience, quality of food and service we received. I had taken my wife there for a her birthday and felt we could have an intimate conversation without being overheard. Our waitress was patient, yet attentive. Portion sizes were perfect and left feeling very satisfied.

“A great addition to downtown Traverse City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

My wife and I dined here on a Friday evening and had a wonderful experience. As East Coast transplants living in an area where many locals consider Olive Garden real Italian food, Sorellina is a distinct breath of fresh air. The service was extremely professional, not intrusive. The dining room is the nicest in Traverse City, soft lighting and the aroma of a real Italian kitchen. Not so loud that you cannot have a conversation as is an issue with other popular Traverse City restaurants. Bruschetta and shrimp scampi appetizers were excellent, the homemade bread for dipping in the scampi sauce, perfect. A wine list consisting of many excellent, moderately priced selections. My wife had the fusilli pasta with gorganzola cream sauce and I had a mushroom ragu pasta special. Both were prepared perfectly followed by Tiramisu for dessert. The owners check with every table to make sure everyone is satisfied, very rare to see nowadays. In short, Sorellina sets the bar in downtown TC for others to emulate.
