The food is always delicious and the cioppino is outstanding! However it can be noisy. It’s probably best to go a little later to avoid crowds and families with children

There's not a lot to not like about Sorella's. Probably some of the most attentive yet unobtrusive service you will receive. Food is great as well. They have water and real SF style sourdough bread on the table quickly after seating, followed by someone serving...More

Sorella is a favorite place to eat in Fairfax. It features homemade Italian dishes that are all heavenly. Seafood Fettuccine with Pesto and Butternut Squash Ravioli with brown butter sage are two of our favorites. Highly recommended...

If you don’t go to dinner here you’re foolish. So delicious Italian flair, everything from surf, turf, veggie, vegan & gluten free. You’ll come for the food and stay for the music & dessert. Enjoy

I don't think so. We only had wine, so not 100% sure. You might want to call and check.
