“Old World Italian Cooking...Mamma Mia!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

My husband and I dined at Sarento's on a weeknight. The restaurant was moderately busy and service was quite good. The bar was absolutely huge and ran the length of a long dining room. It really was beautiful! We sat in a smaller dining room of maybe 5-6 tables. I ordered veal parmagiana which was tasty though I have had veal more tender. My husband ordered a tenderloin trio which was delicious and quite tender cooked just right. The portions here are large so go with an appetite. The wine selections were limited but ample. We split the tiramisu for dessert and enjoyed it very much. The food is very good here!

“A night for just the two of us.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We decided that my Wife and I deserved a meal by ourselves on this vacation. We heard from our hotel staff that there was a great fish fry dinner on Friday nights. We went in search of a couple of drinks and some peace and quiet. What we found was a great atmosphere and and great meal. The fish and breadsticks were way more than we could eat, but we had ordered a bowl of clam chowder to split, it was great. We also enjoyed the salads, and desert. The overall bill for the two of us in my opinion was very reasonable, the peace and quiet granted by our oldest daughter watching the kids for a short time was "priceless".

“An amazing host!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We were staying at the Wilderness for a conference and went to Sarento's for dinner. The food was excellent, but the service and friendliness of the owner were what really impressed us. Our waitress was great -- we would have liked to have had a glass of wine with her. She was well-informed on the Duckhorn Pinot Noir we enjoyed. It was an excellent suggestion. Overall, a restaurant that has become a favorite when visiting Wisconsin Dells.

“Seafood Canolli”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

My husband and I took a "mini-vacation" to the Dells for our 3rd anniversary... sans children! We really loved the area and, from recommendation from the front desk at our hotel we tried Sorento's! We got there around 7pm on our first night in town! It was a little busy, but we got seated right away. The TINY downside here is that they ARE a family friendly restaurant and we were seated next to a table that had a child's birthday party happening. It was a little disappointing since we had left our children at home for a getaway! But that was the only downside! I ordered the Seafood Canolli... it was absolutely TO DIE FOR!!! Some of the very best flavors I have ever had! I ordered it on a whim (I'm usually a lasagna type of person) but it was amazing! So good that I begged my husband to go back to the same restaurant the following night. Learning from our "mistake" we asked for a booth in the bar area! They were extremely accomodating and we had yet another fantastic meal! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a wonderful italian meal to head to Sorento's!! We will absolutely be back again!
