Had a wonderful reunion dinner last night with one of our favorite high school teachers from way back in the day... Our server, Melinda was delightful and wanted to ensure that we had a special evening. The wine was perfect and moderately priced. The entrees of seafood linguine, salmon, and fettuccine with sauce bolognese were delicious. This was clearly the... More

Took Mom here for her birthday. Started out with a carafe of Sangria! Excellent. STRONG! Spiked with Limoncello & Vodka. Jorge, our server was fantastic. Fast, Funny and Informative. For apps...an absolutely stunning winter beet salad, a traditional ANTIPASTO SORRENTINA (prosciutto, soppressata, mortadella, served with olives, artichokes & roasted bell peppers, tomato & fresh mozzarella) and garlic bread. For the... More

We come here frequently, because the food is really good and Melinda makes us feel like family. We always start with spedini, with both sauces on the side--delish. Mains were linguine with clams in white garlic sauce and fresh pasta lasagnette. Wine list is good and reasonably priced.

Chose Italian as a pre-thanksgiving meal. The food was good..normal Italian fare. There were 6 of us so we were able to taste and share a varied amount of menu choices. So, understand, we didn't have complaints about the food.... the problem was the constant attempts at up charging. Two different people came to the table to recite and push... More

Many great specials every day. All good. Very good regular menu too. My favorite is eggplant served two different ways. Both are excellent. Excellent fish entrees too. Many good italian wines.

This is a true Italian family restaurant. The variety of items will please everyone and anyone. Prices are very fair for the quality presented on the plates. Parking is easy at the public garage right next door. Be sure to ask about daily specials and enjoy your meal with a glass of wine too.

We come here often, because we know that we're going to get quality food at reasonable prices. We had salads, white pizza, pasta, and lamb chops. Too full for dessert. Wednesday is 1/2 price bottles of wine.

Visiting relatives on a business trip. Wanted to stay close where they live so they suggested this place. Tuesday around 7:00 pm and the place has maybe 6 patrons. The four of us are seated and a good 10 minutes go by until finally my sister has to ask the waiter walking by our table if we can get some... More

Being on a rigid low sodium diet, this trattoria is a place to go and still enjoy the flavors and sauces of Italian cuisine. Tired of having plain broiled or steamed food, I was able to order veal with a lemon-garlic sauce and the kitchen was willing to adapt the dish for my needs. Others in the party ordered veal...

Sorrento is family owned and run. The ingredients are first rate and prepared with care. The food is sophisticated and the atmosphere is casual and unhurried. And it is quiet, so you can actually have conversation. A great place to enjoy good food and wine with good friends.

Thank Ted G
