The outside does not represent what the locals know, this place is good Italian food. The beet/ arugula salad, caprese salad both good. I had linguine Von gole, excellent. The veal and eggplant dish was also very good. It is BYOB, and credit cards accepted. I will come back.

If you aren't a regular they don't really seem to pay much attention to you. The food is average italian food, which you can find anywhere by us. The do have valet which is useful since the street is congested.

Under new management, we decided to go. Calamari was fried & drained well. Caesar salad was good. Our friends pasta arrabiata was so-so. We found the veal frances a bit tough. Dessert of a cake very average. Service terrible- non-existent.

Italian food is very poplular and for cause. Italian restaurants in new jersey are as common as dandelion in new jersey. Exceptional Italian like a well manicure lawn for summer takes consistent work Sorrento is quiet intimate and true upscale delcious Italian. Another must eat place to be good to yourself.

Visited Sorrento, one of our favorite Italian restaurants this past weekend & noticed immediately that something drastic had happened. As it turned out the owners ( David & Pasqualina Bikoff) had sold the restaurant to the current property owners recently who had just re-opened the restaurant 3 days earlier. They probably should have waited until they had a full staff... More

Sorrento is definitely one of the better Italian restaurants in Bergen County. Beautifully appointed & serving excellent food this restaurant employs a staff of professional, tuxedo clad waiters one of which may occasionally break into singing classic Italian songs or operatic arias. And on occasion there might be live music by a guitar playing singer.

This place is like the good old days; one you want to go back to and get to know the owner and people working there. Personally, I love byob - spend money on good food and service, not ridiculously marked up vino. Dominic is the maitre'D and very welcoming and service oriented. You want solid italian food go here.
