Great food and atmosphere! It was my girlfriends birthday and we met Willie (CEO) from the A&E show Duck Dynasty; which she was very excited about as she is a huge fan of the show. I have eaten here a few times and never been disappointed!

This restaurant always exceeds expectations. Food, service and staff are fantastic. Michael, the manager, never disappoints and always make you feel special and welcome. Osso Bucco is awesome. All food will not disappoint.

Matthew Bricker was the reason
Matthew Bricker was the reason our experience was so positve. We loved our wine as well as our meals. The service was exceptional and we will return because of this. Micahel is always welcoming and we look forward to our next visit.
We felt special because of Matthew and I will be recommending Sorrentinos because of him.

Everytime I go to Sorrentino's Downtown the food and service is fantastic and this weekend was no exception. The restaurant was very busy (with at least 3 big groups that I could see) and Manager Christine Scheetz and her team provided flawless service. My husband and I each had an antipasti course (beef carpaccio and the garlic tastings plate with bruchetta, calamari and prawns) and it was very good. For dinner my husband had the ravioli on the garlic menu and said it was the best pasta he has ever had. I had the Spagetti carbonara from the regular menu and loved it. I swear it is the best spagetti carbonara in the city. I would highly recommend trying out Sorrentino's Downtown if you have the chance.

A touch of class
My wife and I recently had the pleasure to have a meal at Sorrentino's. The service was polite, curteous and knowledgable of the wines and dishes that were available. Our food was prepared and served promptly. Extremely flavourful without being overpowering, a wonderful medly of texture, taste and auroma. We recently ate at the Crappre (also downtown) and in the past we have enjoyed the imtimate atmosphere and classic food but comparing the two I would pick Sorrentino's everytime.

Excellent service, Maître de is one of the best that I've seen, walks the floor and makes sure that the customers are looked after.

Fantastic meal and service.
I highly recommend this lovely restaurant. The food was fantastic as was the service.
One small irritation was some of the music was - in my opinion - not suited for the crowd that was there. But it was
turned quite low so not really anything to be concerned with.
I really liked the idea of assembling a personal appetizer plate from a suggested list. Great idea!

We went here for our anniversary and went early on a Friday. The server was excellent, very formal yet friendly and accommodating. My wife had the butternut squash ravioli and I had the veal. The butternut squash was very tasty, went with the full order. My veal had very unique flavours, a mix of subtle and very strong. So the occasional bite had very strong lemon kicks, but if you got the ratio's right between the risotto and veal your taste buds were rewarded.
They ended off our evening with a surprise tiramisu and a sparkler, that really brightened up our experience and was a very nice gesture.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu at Sorrentino's offers a wide choice of appealing Italian dishes. We shared a snow crab salad that was very tasty. This was followed by a veal piccata served with an artichoke risotto. This was an outstanding dish with a mixture of delicate flavours. my only disappointment was that the shared dishes were not plated separately. That would have turned a fine dining experience into an exceptional one.an exceptional

Excellent, high quality restaurant. Well organised and formal enough for special occasions. There were a few young people in and they were well behaved. The food was excellent and the service as would be expected in a restaurant where you will spend between $80-00to $100-00 per head. Will certainly visit again.

Very Enjoyable and Good Food
four of us enjoyed good food, good service and a pleasant evening. Much quieter than it used to be, we were able to chat comfortably. The service was attentive, and the food was well presented and creative.

Restaurant quiet due to Taste
Restaurant quiet due to Taste of Edmonton across the street. Food and service were very good and we did enjoy our lunch. Special summer menu provided a unique appetizer selection and lighter, but delicious summer pasta selections. Overall very good.

Not for me. Disappointed.
Restaurant menu was very limited for lactose intolerant. Found choices very limited and ate only a quarter of my meal due to cream and cheese content. However my other guests enjoyed the food. The service was great. So my review is not about the whole party of four. Parking and local construction was brutal!

Other than some of the major cities I've been to around the world, Sorrentino's in downtown Edmonton was one of the best Italian meals I've ever had.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the first time I'd been to the downtown location, and it's definitely a much more elegant feel. The restaurant definitely fits into the classy downton restaurant scene. The girlfriend and I had tried the beef carpaccio, quinoa salad, and gnocchi. The food is good, but not great, though, I nervously say, I don't really expect great food from chain restaurants anyways. The carpaccio was a bit bland, and the quinoa salad was quite mediocre, but the gnocchi was very good. Overall though it was a positive experience as the decor is beautiful and the server was quite friendly. I wouldn't at all be opposed to going back.

Superb and sublime
Celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary here -- first time at this location. Cozy decore and a small booth for two was just right. Service not rushed but friendly and attentive. We shared a small appetizer trio-plate and a bottle of Valpolicella with our entrees. I had a beef dish and he had the Osso Bucco. Both cooked to perfection and tasty. A bit too much in volume so we did take some leftovers -- and also to save room for special coffees and a shared Tiramisu - the fluffiest I've ever had! Dinner for two with tax & tip about $190.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The downtown location always stands out from the many decent Italian choices in Edmonton. They can be counted on to provide a great night out every time we go.

Romantic Night Out
My boyfriend and I went here for our anniversary and we were given a special table in a more private area. The food was amazing, the drinks were quickly refilled and the atmosphere was perfect for what we were looking for.

Elegant Italian Dining
Elegant Italian Dining at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend Sorrentino's. The service and food were both outstanding!

Excellent pasta dishes
This was our first visit to the downtown Sorrentino's location, and while it wasn't our first time eating at a Sorrentino's, I don't remember the pasta ever being this good. I had the carbonara which had an excellent, non-traditional presentation, complete with poached eggs. Something about being able to break open your own eggs just set the dish over the top for me as the best carbonara I've had to date. My wife had the special, the spaghettini bolognese, and was quite pleased with it although she was forced to take half of it home. Portion sizes are generous here. Service was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was perfect for quiet conversation. Overall we enjoyed our dinner at Sorrentino's very much and look forward to returning.

Sated at Sorrentino's
My wife and I often dine out early Saturday evenings before going to the Winspear for the Symphony.
This was our second visit to Sorrentino's Downtown location.
Service is attentive but not pressured.
The food at Sorrentino's is always good. I've never had anything that I didn't enjoy.
October is Mushroom month and I ordered a pork tenderloin Seared medallions with lobster mushrooms, vermouth jus.
It was served with a nice variety of vegetables.
With the Quinoa salad we had for starters it was the right amount of food. I was sated but not overstuffed.
I also like it that the restaurant does NOT play any music or have any kind of electronic noise such as TVs blaring away. More restaurants should take notice of this.

One of the City's best
I always enjoy coming to Sorrentino's Downtown for dinner. The menu has something for everyone and I've always enjoyed everything I have ordered.
The service was outstanding - Thank You Lisa.

A great location and menu
A great location and menu for a pre concert dinner. Food portions were perfect, service was attentive, and the food was very good. The server was very accommodating, even asking if he should split the bill for us.

Our first time at Downtown Sorrentino's for our 40th Wedding Anniversary...... we could not have been happier ! Warm and inviting atmosphere, fast and efficient service and delicious food. Our server was friendly and attentive and asked about our visit. When we told her it was our Anniversary she brought us an amazing dessert on the house !! It was nice to see the Manager on the floor keeping an eye on everything and chatting to guests. He came over and said he knew it was our anniversary and was very happy to chat for a while. A very pleasant experience and we will definitely go back.

Very good food, excellent service
The food at the downtown Sorrentino's Downtown has been consistently very good on the three occasions we've been, and the ambience is pleasant. We particularly enjoyed the calamari appetizer, which is NOT deep-fried and chewy but rather is very tender and sauteed in a delicious light sauce. Also the veal piccata and the tattaglia with chicken, mushrooms and herb sauce are both very good choices. Nice that you can order pasta dishes by the half portion if you wish. Service has always been excellent. This is a good place for a pre-theatre dinner as the walk to the Citadel is only one block, and evening parking there is convenient.

Great Dinner Experience
My husband and I truly loved your food and service, we were made to feel very special. A little more English food descriptions would be nice.

Excellent experience, great for business luncheons and (in this case) dinner

Great Service, Excellent Food
Sorrentinos downtown was Excellent. It was great to talk to the event planner to coordinate the private event.
Our server was professional and ensured that each guest was taken care of. I would recommend Sorrentinos for private/company functions and celebrations.
The food was well prepared and cooked to perfection!

15th Anniversary for us.
We were treated like royalty. The Dining Room was very nicely set. Tables were not too close together, a very open atmosphere. Service was very professional and non-intrusive. Music playing in the background was pleasant and at the perfect volume. The food was beyond description for taste, Very well presented.Really enjoyed ourselves. Everything was perfect. Our 15th Anniversary became very precious. Complimentary glass of champagne... mmm.
We'll be back.
