There was only one table occupied when we walked in for a late lunch on Saturday 2 Aug 2014. For it being empty service was slow and a hit and miss on the drink order. The waitress did not appear to want to be there and acted as if she was doing us a favor. Someone forgot to tell the chef that some of their menu items call for Portabella mushrooms, but instead chose to use canned mushrooms that you would get from a cheap pizzeria. I would say overall the food was ok, but prices were too high based on portions.

When Sorentos was in Boston it used to serve some of the best calzone in town. After the fire, it reopened in Marlborough. We drove there several times to try the "new" Sorentos. The food was not as good as it used to be and the owners had decided to stop serving their great calzone. At first they offered calzone only during the weekdays, then you had to ask for special menus which included calzone, later you ordered them without a menu and finally the calzone became extinct. Recently Sorentos started offering lunch. We drove there hoping that they will offer the calzone for lunch but it did not happen. You will find only mediocre italian dishes supplemented by mediocre Persian dishes. Many restaurants in Boston and Metro-West serve better meals with better prices.

I love this restaurant. Ask for the Persian menu. The hummus, the bread, Kabob Barg with Basmati rice is the best I have ever tasted and I am from Glendale, Ca. The owner is very nice and the service is fantastic. It has a very nice bar with great service. This restaurant has become a weekly dine in tradition.

THE FOOD HERE IS AMAZING!! FOOD IS A LITTLE EXPENSE FOR THE PORTION SIZE BUT WELL WORTH IT! Chicken Havarti is my favorite! Although sea food is great too. Never tried the steak but will do next time. It was quite friendly a lil dark but very homey.

We had our Norooz New Years dinner catered last night and it was scrumptious, everything was so good, cooked to perfection and enjoyed by all, we had Mirza Ghasemi, Kukusabzi, Ghormeh Sabzi and Polo, Sabzi Polo.It was ready on time, nice and hot, plenty left over and well worth the price. We live some distance but will go back for dinner and tell all our friends as well.
