“Not as good as last year”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

The quality of the food was not as good as the last time I visited in 2012, so I was disappointed. The risotto was sticky and the sauces seemed heavy and dull. I generally don't salt my meals, but had to this time. I will come back and try it again because of its convenient location and good parking.

I go back to Sorrento's about once every other month because the food is GREAT, portions are plentiful, the prices are reasonable, it's laid back, casual and the service is Excellent.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

2nd best pizza in Contra Costa, I visit here and Melo's in Pleasant Hill often. The pizza always has lots of toppings and the cheese is messy just the way it should be.

“Big Portions...Bring Your Fork!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This friendly restaurant serves up all of the Italian basics...nicely prepared and in hearty portions. You certainly won't leave this place hungry! Our ravioli was well cooked and it's always nice to see a "good sized" ravioli...something that you need to cut in half before eating - rather than the "postage sized" ravioli served at so many restaurants. Our server was very attentive and friendly, too. All said, this place is a good choice for a homestyle Italian meal without the hype and fanfare found elsewhere.
