Sorrento's Ristorante is located at Tsillan Cellars, about two miles from Chelan. Located up the hillside, the dining room offers panoramic views of surrounding hillsides and Lake Chelan through floor to ceiling glass doors. Their menu offers a variety of dishes, and suggests wine pairings of their excellent wines. Our dinners were delicious and nicely presented, and we both loved... More

Be hungry because they give you a plate full of great food. No one at our table could finish their lunch. Meatball sandwich is awesome. Wife's salad was excellent. Tomato basil soup - oh man!

The restaurant is part of the Chelan Winery. It is situated on a hill among the vineyards with an excellent view of the lake in the background. The room is large and with all sliding doors pulled back gave the feeling of dining outside. I had the Italian sausage and ravioli, my wife had the chicken linguine. Both were very... More

The location, views, food and service are Top! I didn't want to leave this place! The setting is so beautiful up on the hill - can see Lake Chelan! It's so well maintained and really Classy! I can't wait to go back soon again!

My husband and I came to celebrate at Sorrento's on our honeymoon this last week, and I was truly looking forward to our reservation. I was definitely let down by the food and the service. We asked our server would tell us he would do something and would forget, was polite but not friendly, and I felt as though all... More

Sorrentos is a wonderful restorante located in the Tsillan Cellars winery overlooking the south shore of beautiful Lake Chelan. The setting is superb and the food excellent especially accompanied by the estate bottled wines from the Tsillan Cellars. On a summer or fall afternoon there isn't a better place tp have lunch or mid afternoon meal than Sorrentos.. We love... More

Expected more after reading the reviews. Service good, wine good but the food lacked any special taste. The chicken Marsala was good but boring. The halibut was expensive, ample serving but very bland. I think that there are better choices in this little town.

We enjoyed this restaurant very much. It reminded us of being at Lake Como in Italy. The food was exceptional as well with the beautiful scenery of Lake Chelan and the winery. You must sample to wines as well. They are exceptional.

Sorrento's Ristorante at Tsillan Cellar's owner, Dr. Bob Jankelson, admits that the food of Italy captured him before he developed his interest in wine. Dozens of teaching trips to Italy instilled an appreciation of Italian cuisine paired with food friendly wine shared with friends and family. The same meticulous attention to detail evident in Tsillan Cellars stunning Italian architecture and grounds, transfers to a kitchen that brings world class dining to the shores of Lake Chelan. While Sorrento Ristorante is the perfect setting for a romantic evening of dining with that special person it is also the perfect venue to entertain business colleagues, friends, or have a warm family friendly dining experience. In winter, the inviting Italian fireplace and panoramic views of Lake Chelan and snow clad mountains blend with award winning food and wine to leave indelible memories. Outstanding ambiance, food, wine and service- four reasons Sorrento's Ristorante at Tsillan Cellars was named OpenTable Top 100 Scenic Restaurants in America in 2014.
