I love the owner who works there in the evenings, she's so warm and friendly. The staff are great with families. When you get there they bring a BIG wheel of cheese and cut off chunks to eat while you look at the menu. The fresh bread is tasty and the dishes are hearty and generous. Our family likes coming here.

Distracted service.

Good food.

Nice location for walking around before or after the meal.

Probably OK during slow periods.

Great food, great atmosphere big portions. The spaghetti puttanesca is just as good if not better than any Pasta dish I had in Italy. These sisters rock.
Good job Sorellas.

Great food dreamed up by local women (sisters, hence the name). A big chunk of parmesan off the wheel to go with your pre-meal sourdough, and gummi bears for dessert.
I had to stop going here because I can't get my wheeled walker around the tables, especially when the restaurant is full, which is most of the time.

We live nearby and have been eating at Sorella for years. It is our standby when we want to eat a great meal in a place where we feel welcomed and the ambiance is upbeat and a little quirky. The restaurant stands alone on its corner, which is brighted by the many small lights and ornaments in the windows. Food is consistently yummy, and you will never leave hungry. Being served a chunk of Parmesan carved right from the big cheese wheel right when you are getting settled at your table means you can take the sharp edge off your hunger while you are contemplating the menu. You never feel rushed. The place is very family-friendly without feeling like a kid's place. It can get quite busy, so it is not the best place for an intimate conversation. On Friday nights there is often live accordion music by the inimitable virtuoso Giovanni.
