Not awful (except for the gummy house baked bread), but certainly not what you'd expect from a neighborhood Italian place. I think they must have run out of interest since next time we were in town it was gone.

Poor meal with poor service. Staff seemed unhappy. Service was inattentive and unfriendly. No bread offered which seemed strange as other table had it, and a baby chair was rather grumpily handed over. Pizza was extremely disappointing given the acclaim on the menu. We ordered two - both had an overcooked base (too blackened) and undercooked topping (cheese was rather... More

Sorriso is a small Italian restaurant steps from the Cleveland Park Metro (red line) exit. family members cook and serve and visit your table when the crowd thins. Although they serve delicious pizza, this is no pizza place. The food is fresh and thoughtfully prepared. Lovely family, charming place. Order a bottle of the owners wine, straight from the family...

We were the only people there. That should have been a tip off. After being seated and getting a. Glass of water, we had a... More

Sorriso had some of the best Italian food we've ever had. The homemade ravioli was fantastic. The Italian sausage was delicious! The service could be better, though. It felt like a family run restaurant, but it also felt like the family was more attentive to each other and their friends than they were to their customers. I still recommend this... More

We went here recently for my daughters birthday dinner. She had made a reservation, which some how the restaurant lost. However, the wonderful owner managed to create space for us and gave us each a free glass of pro secco. The service was excellent, and the food fantastic. Our favorite was the pappardelle . The gelato was the best I've... More

We love going to Sorriso for consistently good food and service. Pietro and Rosemary, the owners, are charming and very accommodating. The servers are personable and professional. Whenever we eat here, we are greeted like friends or even family, and we do feel as if we are sitting down to a good home-cooked Italian meal. Do try some wood oven... More

We had an excellent meal here. Recommended by a friend, and the food reminded me of a meal I shared with family in Tuscany. We were treated like family.

I got there early to wait for a friend to arrive and was given a nice table to look out the window. The place was busy and that seemed like a good sign. I ordered some wine and it was good, but when it came time to order my food and get it, that's when I realized I was not... More
