We found this restaurant to be an authentic Italian eatery. The carved wood bar was beautiful and with our seating in the upper level, we were able to see it. There was an extensive wine list and multiple tempting dinner choices. The ricotta appetizer was...More

I lived in Naperville for over 40 years and only went to La Sorella twice. The main reason was the noise level. The building was an old bank, I believe, and there is no carpeting to deaden the noise. I've been there for lunch and...More
