I like this place for the theater district and plan to come back. Loved the homemade pasta, As with many NY Italian restaurants thought the portions are huge. Good, attentive service. Breack basket seemed a little stale.

Quite anonymous fr.o.m. the outside. If we did not know about it, we had passed by. We nearly cried happytears for the veal cruda as a starter. The Pici, pasta with pork ragu, was perfect and the 'bicerin' as dessert, and we were in heaven....More

Unfortunately we were very alone this rainy tuesday night so our impression is that if you ad ambiance and lots of guests, this must be a super nice place to come back to. We were well taken care of, the kitchen is very skilled and...More

This joint, where the East Village meets Chinatown, was the revelation of a weekend of eating Manhattan. More memorable than three far more renowned eateries, it's a place to sample many small plates and smart, hip wines. Try the broccoli misto, or the pork ragu,...More

Sorella is the "sister" conceived on a journey throughout Northern Italy. We found a love for Piedmont's cafe culture that insisted we bring the feeling back to New York.
