“Average place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

After reading all the glowing reviews, to say I was a little disappointed would be an understatement. Ordered the Sorrento Seafood dish which sounded superb but ended up being very bland lacking sufficient seasonings. The Malbec wine was flavorless as well. I would have to say looking around the restaurant that the pizza would be the way to go at this establishment. One positive for me, the hot bread was great!

“Statesville's Carabas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

The menu has been updated in the past year and the food has really been elevated to another level. The chicken is now freshly grilled large chicken breasts and as always the sauces and pastas are top notch. The new dishes are competitive with places like Carabas and Maggianos but the pricing is still much lower.

“Delicious food and convenient location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

We were staying overnight in Statesville on a trip from Pennsylvania to Florida. After a long day of driving we didn't want any more fast food junk. We found Sorrentos and decided to give it a shot after reading all of the positive reviews.

The potato soup was delicious and my Carbonara ($10) was incredible! My kids had the Sicilian pizza which is huge, but only $11. My mother had stuffed chicken Marsala and loved hers too.

Johanna was our waitress and she was attentive and knowledgable.

Overall it was a fantastic experience and I wish this restaurant was located in my town!
