    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    We read nothing but fabulous reviews and had to try. Food was fabulous. We had salmon tartare and arugula salad to start followed by the ribeye and fettuccine with wild mushrooms and truffle oil. Wow!!! And dessert was an amazing lemon and blueberry cake and chocolate torte. The food was off the chain!!! The service was fantastic. The atmosphere seemed a little fancy/stuffy but once we were seated we were in our own little world. And like I said service and food was spectacular. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion dinner :)

    It is always a very pleasant environment. The menu choices are relatively few. It boasts prices of gourmet venue, but not justified by innovative and eclectic cuisine. Service is haphazard! Personally, I think it needs to decide a more defined future trajectory food innovation or modern hot spot.

    Reservation was for 830pm. Seated at 9:20pm... Our waitress was fantastic. The whole experience was spectacular but as good as everything was the host stand was that bad. Totally unfriendly and disorganized just did not fit the rest of the restaurant.

  • too expensive, but great service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/27/2014
    Went for resturant week, and even then thought the food was expensive for what it was. My salmon was not cooked, and still pink. I am amazed that dishes here cost $40. While the ambiance is lovely, would not go back because it is just too expensive for the quality.

    We took advantage of the Dine Out Boston week to make our first visit to Sorrelina. There was a very good choice on the Dine Out menu. The wine list was extensive but I found the mark-up to be quite high. However, the wine suggested on the prix fixe menu was very good and represented good value. Service was very attentive but not obtrusive and we were made feel special. We shall be going back.

  • Over priced and salty
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/27/2014
    It was restaurant week so we thought we would try Sorellinas knowing it was a pricy restaurant, we ordered a glass of wine which turned out to be $19.00. I think we should have been told the price before we saw it in the check. The pasta was salty, the salmon almost raw. I was disappointed .

    We ended up ordering from the Restaurant Week menu as it offered terrific choices and value. For appetizers, we ordered the buccatini pasta and the salmon tartare which were both delicious. For entrees, we both had the ribeye which was incredible. The desserts were also delicious and we ordered the Barbera wine which was suggested to pair with the Restaurant Week meals. The room is beautiful and fortunately, on a Sunday night, most of the tables nearby were empty during most of our dinner which made it very private. All in all, although not inexpensive, a great value for a memorable meal.

Sorellina combines an elegant dining room, the highest quality ingredients and cooking, knowledgable and pleasant service, gorgeously plated food, with reasonable valet parking just outside the door. I am still swooning over my dessert. We enjoyed it thoroughly and will be back!

    We love Sorelina. Come to Boston twice a year and it is not missed when we are in town. Food is excellent excellent. Service is cordial and not over the top. Had a "bad table" right next to the kitchen door which was quite busy on Saturday night - shame on us for taking it. The wine list is terrific and very reasonably priced - some hidden gems! Don't miss it!

    My husband and I have been here many times, though we tend to save it for special occasions, this last time our anniversary. This last time I had a veal saltimbocca which featured a thick, juicy tender veal done to perfection at a medium rare, possibly the best and certainly the most unique I've ever had. The wait person was helpful, attentive and friendly. I also love the decor in black and white, modern clean lines. This is in my top five restaurants in the Boston area.

    My husband and I had booked it few other times and couldn't go for some reasons. We finally went during the dine out weekday and tried price fixed menu for 3 course dinner meal. Ambiance was perfect for a date night. Dim lights, dressed up gentry, notable wine list, vibrant yet not loud..My husband said he's had better fettuccine and honestly even I have had better salmon but somehow it didn't matter too much since our appetizers and desserts and just the whole place, our waitress and dine out deal made up for that.

    Sorellina is a beautiful restaurant that has great service and food! We went during "dine out Boston" so the special menu was limited. The regular menu was available, but we chose to order from the restaurant week menu. Our appetizers were salmon tartare and a caprese salad. We both ordered the rib eye steak with gorgonzola cheese. It was flavorful and delicious. We got eggplant rolattini and broccoli rabe as sides. We did not choose to try the desserts. We offered our desserts to a young couple instead. We highly recommend this restaurant! Our server Mark was outstanding!

    It was the first time eating there for us, and it Sorellina exceeded every expectation. From the interior design, to the service and food. If you want to try something different, and absolutely amazing, go to Sorellina and try the grilled octopus with squid ink couscous. One of the best dishes I've ever had. Its actually made it to my top ten all time amazing eats. We also had mushrooms and trouffle pasta that was superb.

    We dined at Sorellina last Saturday and loved every minute of our experience. The dining room is gorgeous, comfortable and relaxing. The food is exceptional. The beet salad appetizer and the appetizer portion of the maccheroncelli were delicious. The saltimbocca was the best ever. The wine list was impressive and our waitress guided us well regarding our choices of wines. Dessert choices were all very tempting. However, we were too full to indulge. Our cappuccinos were delicious and so frothy on top. We have already recommended Sorellina and can't wait to return.

As far as food is I had the Veal Saltimbocca. The presentation was a picture and the favor was great. The cocktails we had were fantastic. The service at the table was like a dance. It was like a well-oiled team. The restaurant is very unique' because it is very sexy with the colors of the restaurant, yet very warm and friendly.
