    They charged us for 2 glasses of wine that we didn't order so make sure you check your bill. Other than that, it was a great experience. I had requested a quiet table and they delivered. Food is amazing but very expensive - great place for celebrating a special occasion.

    Go with a group, or at least go very hungry, because you will want to try everything. Thin sliced octopus with pickled chili on squid-ink infused couscous might be the best thing I have ever put in my mouth! The pasta, made on-site of course, is perfection. Don't forget the contorni: sliced aubergine around ricotta was a stand-out. I did find the wine list to be a bit challenging, but then I'm sure I could have enlisted the help of a sommelier if I had asked. Sorellina is lively without being noisy. The food and service are A+. You're in for a treat.

    I would eat here very often if I lived in Boston. Best meal i've enjoyed in quite some time. Started with the Caesar salad. A light, unique twist to most heavier caesar salads one encounters. I loved the Spaghetti with the prawns and guanciale and my dining partner loved her Veal Saltimboca. We also shared the greens special of the night which was flavored perfectly. A glass of port and a very unique take on tiramisu made for a perfect dinner. Wonderful food at prices one would expect for this type of restaurant and above par service. All that being said, the wine list was a bit of a sticker shock. Would have like to see more reasonable pricing on the wines, both by the glass and bottle.

    Great dinner at Sorrelina's last nite. Song was our server and she was the BEST SERVER we've ever had, at ANY restaurant. Appetizers of Tuna Tartare,Lobster Gnocci and M meatballs were superb. Beef Carpaccio just ok(a lot better at R Chris). Everyone loved their entrees: Filet Mignon, King Salmon, and Veal Milanese Chop, and Desserts of Bombolni and Gelato/Sorbet were super. It was super busy on this Friday nite and a great place to celebrate our son in law's 50th.

    My wife and I had an outstanding evening at Sorellina. High quality and tasty food that was prepared with style and care. Perfect service. The waiter was at our table when we needed him, but not too much. The restaurant is beautiful and a pleasure to be at. Our only suggestion is to add a bit of creativity to the menu. Perhaps using some local food with an Italian style.

    I've been here twice and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. Most recently, I went with a party of four and we ordered appetizers for sharing. The kitchen divided each one for us and plated them separately! Some restuarants give you grief about sharing, but Sorellina went above and beyond to facilitate the process for us. This is serious service! Beyond the service, all the dishes that we tried were a party in my mouth, from the tuna tartare to the burrata to the octopus ink couscous to the mushroom fettucine. We tried rabbit tortellini, lamb chops, and veal as our main courses, and they were all tremendously executed as well. The tiramisu was among the best I've had, and whatever you do, definitely order the PROSECCO!!!

    This was a perfect place for a special dinner -- in our case, celebrating our anniversary. The ambience is really gorgeous. The food was great, and really beautifully presented. My wife and I shared a delicious raw salmon appetizer. She enjoyed an excellent filet mignon for her entree, while I had a very good halibut prepared in a lobster sauce, with chunks of lobster. Our dessert was a tasty serving of nutella-filled sugar donut holes with a creme fraiche for dipping. I included a note in my OpenTable reservation that it was our anniversary, and they even wrote Happy Anniversary on the dessert plate in chocolate sauce! Overall, though it was fairly pricey, it was a fantastic special occasion dinner.

    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.

    I dined at Sorellina during Boston Restaurant Week and it was AMAZIng! We enjoyed every single second and every dish! Usually restaurants downgrade their service and food for restaurant week but Sorellina kept the same service as every other day. The food was really good our server was very nice! This is a restaurant my mom has been wanting to go to, so being able to finally go there it was pretty good! Everything on the menu was really really good! I can't wait to go back again maybe not on restaurant week.

    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.

    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.

    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!
