“Great lunch specials”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Good food is all ways on the menu at Sorbello's....
I have eaten there quite a few time recently and every time the dish I have had has been good.
I have been there for lunch as I reckon the prices for the set menu are very reasonable and the choice is varied enough to not have to eat the same dish twice (well not unless you loved it sooooo much and couldn't go past!!) if your in Mackay, you should try this one out.
I reckon you won't go wrong.

“Best Calamari I have EVER had!!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

The owners are super friendly and welcoming, and the service is great. They run a tight ship, but maintaining a smile at the same time. The calamari MUST be tried, it is melt in your mouth delicious, the best I have ever tried (and I've tried a lot!). Beautiful gnocchi made on site, this place has plenty of personality, and is a great family-run business. Will definitely visit again next time I'm in Mackay! :)

“Good food, good service, the biggest menu you will ever see!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

The atmosphere is friendly, but too impersonal. The tasty food makes up for what is lacking in atmosphere.

“Dinner with Friends”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Food was delicious and the wine was great, although on the pricey end. It was a very busy night and we had to ask one of the passing waitresses for a drink initially but the service picked up after that. A very enjoyable night had by all.

“Poor man's italian restaurant”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Was reasonably excited to go to this place as it seemed to be the most bustling in Mackay on our short stay. On the night we went, the restaurant was packed.

On a positive note, they have a small space set aside for couples away from the action of the larger groups, so the noise doesn't become overbearing. A general plus.

I've never seen a menu like this one before. There must be about 3,000 items on the menu (not kidding) and it stretches along about 30 pages. We were convinced it was formatted using M'Soft Excel. Every product line had about 15 variations.

As for the food. We ordered the antipasto platter for 2 as an entree. From what we could tell, it was all essentially from jars and had been slapped on the plate. It was ok, but not spectacular. For mains, we ordered the chicken salad and prawn salad, both costing around $25.00 each. The food was quite poor given the price. There was 3 prawns in the salad which were cut in half to make 6. There was slightly more chicken in the other salad. The salad itself was basic and must have been drowned in mayonnaise. Suffice to say it was an underwhelming experience.

Service was fast. Our waitress introduced herself and offered us both the menu and daily specials. We were also provided tap water without request. The meals arrived within about 20-25 minutes.

This would be a good place if you'd like to attend a bar with a wide variety of wines and beers. The bar sits in the back corner, but is of a decent size and well equipped.
