“Fine dining with pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We have been here for the past few years. Fine dining upstairs with pizza downstairs. Can not judge the pizza as we have always been seated in the dining rooms upstairs. Be prepared it is a little pricey, however food is excellent. Last time we were there we had the seafood cannelloni
and the seafood Alfredo. Both dishes were presented well and tasted exquisite. Can't wait to go back.

“With 3 children 5 and under, we thought this would be disaster!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Oh, Oh, we walked in and almost changed our minds. Table clothes, white napkins wrapped around the cutlery. Do you have an area where we won't bother other patrons, I asked? We were seated at a large booth table in the corner, so far so good. There were also other tables with children but none this small. The children did behave rather well and everyone passing our table did their best to take care of us and answer their questions or talk with them. Since it was Friday, most of us had fish fry while one opted for chicken with alfredo sauce. The fish was very good with a light batter, the meal included fries and a salad at a good price. I was told the chicken dish was good. We did have a misunderstanding when the bill arrived as we used a coupon found in the area mall discount book and did not read the fine print about the discount not available for the fish special, but they applied the discount to the other meals and everything was handled well. We would like to come back and try this restaurant again without children.

“Expensive and food wasn't good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

My husband, son and myself were staying at the Wilderness and went to Sarento's for dinner. We were very surprised at how nice the inside was. When we were seated we were greeted by one of our 5 servers, that seemed a little excessive. We ordered an ravioli appetizer that we were expecting to be fried ravioli but it was like a little side dish of ravioli in a cream sauce and wasn't that good. I had a salad with my meal that had rotten cherry tomatoes in it. I didn't notice this until I bit into one and the rotten taste stayed with me the whole meal. We informed the server and nothing was every mentioned about it by the staff. We got our meals which consisted of lasagna and fettuccine alfredo with chicken, again both were not that good. That disappointing seeing the meals cost about $17 - $25. We were very disappointed by the high cost and poor tasting food and will not go back nor suggest for anyone to go there either.

“A Romantic Evening”

My husband & I celebrated an anniversary there back in December and we had a wonderful time. We loved the food and the quiet, clean, friendly, and romantic atmosphere. Can't wait to return!

“Good pizza but a little pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Now, I realize that this is a resort town so they'll ding you for a little more. That said the pizza is VERY good. Delivered right to our room at the Wilderness Resort in a decent amount of time. The crust was good. Breadsticks were good, too. All in all a decent, non-chain pizza choice.
