Meal was good to great depending on what you ordered. My favorite dish was the shrimp gnocchi, but I was disappointed by the risotto. Don't be fooled by the white linian table clothes, dress style was everything from blue jeans and a shirt to jacket and slacks. If you want to listen to the piano make sure to sit close.... More

After being warmly greeted upon entering, we were shown our table and were then offer an assortment of breads and some roasted garlic. Don't pass up the bread with anchovies and cheese, it is tasty! Our very gracious host, Sergio, took our order for cocktails and delivered a delicious Negroni. Our hostess chose a variety of appetizers and the calamari... More

Love this Italian restaurant. Their bread, olive oil, & garlic service before the meal is amazing. So many choices. Their risotto appetizer prepared partially at table side on a wheel of Regiano Parmesana is awesome. A great Italian restaurant with a great Italian wine list.

Because Mother's Day is usually chaotic in restaurants and this year our entire family was getting together at a home, my husband surprised me with dinner on the Thursday night before. He made the reservations and it was a complete surprise right up until we drove in front of Sorrento's. Neither of us had been there before, but I had... More

Our 6:30 reservation for four on a Saturday evening was promptly honored. Drink orders taken, we had time to visit before the menus arrived. The staff was helpful, but not pushy, and accommodated one guest's special request for his main course. We did not feel rushed during our meal at this elegant restaurant, even though we stayed nearly two and... More

We've been to this restaurant near our house many times, and it never fails to impress. The food and the service are outstanding. Try the perfectly tender filet mignon with wild mushrooms and a cognac sauce or the lightly coated sea bass with great risotto. Also, there is often a piano player on the grand piano between the bar and... More

We were celebrating a milestone birthday and were placed in one of the restaurant's private rooms -- a perfect locale for our group of five, set off from the main dining room amid the amazing wine collection. We enjoyed a bottle of Barolo with our meal. Each course provided morsels of culinary excellence that surpassed what we had eaten before.... More

My company took some clients here for dinner on a Monday night. Everything was outstanding. Highly recommend the salmon and the seafood far diablo. Service was impeccable as well. They put us in the private "wine Room" which was gorgeous. Would certainly go here again -one of the best Italian meals I've ever had!

I have had lunch here many times and the food and service are always excellent. The Chef's Lunch Tasting is a good value and the wine list has all price points represented. If you are looking for a good lunch spot close to town, this is it.
