Have been a patron of this place for over 10 years! Upscale Italian Cuisine with different menu daily with specials. Great for couples or families! The waitstaff knows their stuff, will describe what wines compliment your dinner choice. Consistently delicious pasta and seafood!

I love about ALL of the La Sorella restaurants. The food is always good, as is the service. I typically order a fish dish. When they have their Champagne salad dressing, be sure to order that -- it is outstanding!

Was there on a Saturday night. As always the food is very good although I have had better. The service was very rushed. They obviously need to turn the tables. The noise prohibits any kind of conversation. If you're looking for a place to have a leisurely dinner with conversation not the place to go. Also forgot salads and coffee.

Food at any of the Francesa's restaurants are alway really good and consistent. Had the risotto app and green bean salad and they were both great, got the bolognese and the seafood pasta and again very good and plenty to take home!

Great place to catch a bite anytime but if you don't want the crowds and the noise try a 4pm late lunch. Fabulous service, food and easy to chat with my friend.

This place isn't cheap, but the food is top notch, and the servers make you feel like it's a special occasion. Be aware if they give you a reservation upstairs, the room is not anywhere near as elegant as downstairs. (It's still nice, but if you are looking for the Sorella glam, it's not that.) The rigatoni with sausage and... More

I dined here as I was looking for something special in Italian food and based on the reviews chose this place. The entire experience was very good. Service was top notch and I will definitely go back. Even as a single diner I was seated quickly and the servers were all very attentive. The pasta I had was great. It... More

This is a typical pick for me if I'm not looking for something specific ; like a good steak, or fresh fish. You always get a good meal. Menu is solid and changes frequently.

Quiet dining in the window table reminded me of a Table in Little Italy New York. Excellent professional service. Enjoyed the Calamari Salad with Roasted Peppers. The meatballs with their bread. The most enjoyable Carpacchio. Beautiful presentation. Topped with Shaved Parm, capers ...yes! Loved this place.
