“Pleasant dining experience, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We recently enjoyed a family dinner at Sarento's Italian Restaurant. The menu offers a nice variety of items and prices. I enjoyed the special, Seafood Cannelloni, which came with a wonderful salad and, of course, warm fresh bread. Our wait staff were attentive, knowledgeable and personable, quickly clearing dishes and refilling water tumblers. Our food was, well, wonderful, filling, fantastic. Total bill for 4 adult entrees, 4 cocktails and creme brulee for 1 was $125.00 - very reasonable.

“Not just pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Nice menu with lots to choose from besides pizza. Prices a little high, but probably par for the course in the Dells. Great service.

“Go to UNO instead.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We tried this restaurant because the nearby hotel we were staying at said they offered free kids meals with an adult entree purchase (one free meal per one adult entree). Kids meals are reasonably priced at 5.99 however the entree's are pricey for the quality and quantity. The restaurant itself is nice, dimly lit and seemed better suited for couples although there were other families with young children. They were not real busy but yet we waited a long time for the server to take our order and for our food to arrive. We received water and breadsticks quickly. The breadsticks are good but that's it. I had chicken parm which I can make better at home using a frozen breaded chicken breast (that's probably what it was). Not worth 18.95. I usually read reviews before trying something new and didn't. Lesson learned. The family next to us,also complained about the service and the food. We've been to UNO before which is across the street nearby and have been pleased so next time we are in the Dells and want italian, we'll head to UNO. The kids had mac n cheese which is not KRAFT in a box, but it was just OK.

“Great drinks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

My wife and I went here last night. The food was below average and over priced for the quality. I will never pay these pricess to eat basic pasta with very plan out of the can sauces. The service we recieved at the bar was fantastic. The young man behind the bar was very good at what he does! He was polite, friendly, and very attentive. We would go back just to see him. I think he was the only American person working here. Our server however forgot our appetizers and brought our salad out. When we asked her she just stared at us like she had no clue what we were saying. I may go back for the great drinks ( best old fashion I've ever had) and service from the bar. But you won't catch me eating here again.

“Decent delivery to nearby resort, fairly expensive food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We ordered meals twice from Sarentos. The pizza was good. Delivery was speedy and the service was good as well. The prices were pretty steep for a restaurant in this resort area during the off season. $15 for spaghetti, seems a bit much. There was no delivery charge, which is nice.
