For many years this restaurant has provided consistently good food - no matter what day of the week you dine out! It is not trendy or fashionable but if you want a good meal this is the place!

The zuppa di pesce is probably the finest meal in all of Jacksonville. This is a dish prepared by a genuine Italian chef who takes very seriously the meals that he places before you..

A very charming place. Looks are deceiving from the outside but is very well decorated inside. Clean and neat. White linen tablecloths and linen napkins. Nice touch. Service was very good and attentive. It was a Friday night at 7:30. About 50% full. Ordered white wine, Riesling. Came nicely chilled. Mini garlic bread boules followed, hot and crispy. Very tasty.... More

We were referred to this restaurant for their eggplant parm. Was good but too much salt and the same for the side of pasta. Rolls were good.

I have eaten at Sorrento probably 12 to 15 times over the last twenty or so years. I never really thought too much about it until I really began to scrutinize it. This restaurant is family owned and operated for well over two decades, probably more. It is not really too near any certain area. It is near private schools,... More

Pretty good & Autentic Italian flavours. The place is a bit pricey, and the service isn't the best we've had. But the food was excellent - I especially liked the cannolis I've had for desert (just as good here as in Sicily!)

Has many wine tasting dinners at Sorrento. A friend knows everyone which gets us VIP treatment at the place. Hence, service has always been outstanding at the best table. The food quality is solid. Decoration and ambience very nice with modern touches. Nothing bad to be said about the place.

Sorrento doesn't look like much on the outside, but the food that awaits you more than makes up for it. It's not the most stylish restaurant; the dated decor and lace curtains remind me of my grandmother's house; but the quaint fireplace and friendly service makes it very welcoming. Sorrento's calamari was great: crispy and flavorful, just how it should... More
