While staying at Azalea Inn, I've eaten at Sorrento's a few times. Greg and Amy said to give this place a try. It's right across the street from the inn and easy to walk to. The food is good. The service is great. This will be a regular place for my and my boyfriend. The staff is also very nice.

Greg, from Azalea Inn said Sorrento's "was the best Italian in the high country" and I would have to disagree. It's some of the best Italian I've had on the east coast.

It's obvious when you walk in the door, you've found fine dining; from the tables and bar to the staff building. The owners must take a great deal of pride in the business; very professional from start to finish.

The wine selection included local wines and all were good.

great little casual place in the heart of the village. The bartender surprised me with a delightful original cocktail that was very good. Great salads and soup, homemade bread, and a great shrimp special dish but a bit heavy on the sauce. Service was outstanding and everyone was so friendly and most welcoming. Wines were very good as well.

Though the food is classy, because this is a college town, you don't have to feel underdressed. Everyone comes in casual. My husband and I had two of the different eggplant dishes and were pleased. Prices are reasonable, and the service is excellent.

Loved the eggplant parm, great wine selection, friendly staff. The person next to us had a pizza that looked amazing, too.
