Great Italian food!The Octopus salad is excellent; the gnocchi are the same and the veal Milanese even better! The Chef loves truffles, obviously. A great dining place for a special occasion.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTo begin, the food was absolutelyTo begin, the food was absolutely outstanding. I started with a smaller portion of the Maccheroncelli with Wagyu beef meatballs. For the first time, my boyfriend announced that although his oysters were perfect, he should have ordered what I ordered! Everything we ate had outstanding flavor, was cooked to perfection, and was beautifully portioned. The kitchen staff even wrote "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on our dessert plates (I had made note of the occasion in our Open Table reservation). Perhaps even better than the food, though, was the service. Our waiter Kirk was polite and professional, welcomed our questions about the menus, and offered excellent suggestions. For a lovely and delicious evening, I highly recommend Sorellina.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Sorelina, the ambiance,We love Sorelina, the ambiance, the food and usually the service. During our recent visit we, for the first time at Sorelina, experienced an indifferent Server. So while this may be the bad news, the good news is that every other time we have dined at Sorelina it has been a wonderful experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!Sorellina was amazing. Definitely a place for a special occasion as it is an expensive place. However, I can honestly say that it was worth every penny. Generally a lot of higher tiered restaurants boost high prices and good or average food. This was not the case with Sorellina. The food was AMAZING. We went her to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and we had the Wagyu meatballs as an appetizer, the lobster gnocchi and scallops as our entrees, and we split the molten lava cake for dessert. We also tried many different cocktails. You MUST try to Wagyu meatballs- both the lobster gnocchi and scallops were delicious, but the lobster gnocchi was better. The best cocktail was the White Pearl, so start off with that!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely presentation of foodDinners were presented with style and absolutely delicious. The filet mignon was one of the best I have ever had. Everyone in our party raved about the food and we had a variety of dishes; besides the filet we tried chicken, gnocchi and veal. All were superb. Wine was also excellent.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM.Ladies Night Out!What a complete treasure!!
I came in with four other girls for a birthday and we could not have been happier! The food was stunning, the wine was delicious and our server was very hospitable. We started with salads, tuna tartar and the amazing oysters. There's this lime ice component with the oysters that can't be forgotten!
I enjoyed the halibut, several girls ordered the lamb, etc. What great food! They brought out a delightful dessert with a Happy Birthday chocolate sign drizzled around the edge. Thank you so so much for making our lady feel special!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable experience withEnjoyable experience with great service and very good food.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI was more than pleasantly pleased.My husband had gone to Sorellina before and had said it was good, but what I found was really surprising: gorgeous place, the most attentive service and the good was superb! Our group was big so we tried many different things: all the pasta plates were perfectly "al dente" with well prepared sauces, combined with truffles, or exquisite meat balls, sea food..... The veal, prepared as "milanesa" was indeed tasty and a gem to see. We closed with chocolate fondant and a plate of tiny donuts that were out of this world.
All I have let to say is that I fully recommend SORELLINA.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellant foodThis is one of the best dining experiences I've had in Boston and I am local. The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was beautiful.
The eggplant appetizer was out of this world and the pasta dishes were exceptional. I can't wait to go back. Honestly, I cook and am very fussy about what I eat. This is one of the few places that I can't wait to return to. Beautiful décor!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful in every wayFor our second last night in Boston my husband and I chose to dine at Sorellina, and we were delighted with this lovely restaurant. The service was both very professional and friendly. For starters we chose pasta with lamb ragu and tuna tartare. Mains were the halibut and salmon. All were delicious. We could not resist the tiramisu on the dessert menu and it did not disappoint. We had a superb wine from the Napa Valley to complement our meal.The lighting and vibe of this restaurant complements the good food and impeccable service. I highly recommend to anyone looking for an enjoyable evening of good food in pleasant surroundings.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMore French than I was expectingThe food was delicious in buttery way. The tables are a good distance apart so it has an intimate atmosphere. The waitress was overly optimistic about how much we could eat. We (3 girls) had starter, entree and dessert (entree main dessert for any other Australians out there) but would have been better off having the starter size entrees.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMStylish restaurant with friendlyStylish restaurant with friendly and competent staff. Well executed food with great flavors. Grilled octopus with squid ink cous- cous great and the grilled lamb chops cooked to perfection. Perfect for good conversation, comforting food and attentive service in elegant yet warm setting.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful Anniversary dinnerThe lobster gnocchi for an appetizer was divine. Truly one of the best dishes we have tasted in a long time. Plenty to share. The lamb chops were very thick, lightly crispy on the outside, with outstanding herb flavor. Mushroom fettuccini was good, though not as exceptional as gnocchi. Our waiter was professional and succinct.We were celebrating our anniversary, and felt it was intimate and appropriate for the occasion . Highly recommend .4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalOutstanding experience in every way. The food ranged from excellent to even better (cavatelli and octopus). Our server (Song) reminded us of what truly great service is. She is truly professional- knowledgeable, knows when to intercede, helpful and she really made the difference making it an outstanding experience.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a supposed "Top 50" restaurantFor a supposed "Top 50" restaurant in Boston, the food did not live up to the billing. My tuna tartare was fresh and well presented, but bland. The fresh peas in the cavatelli dish were picked past their prime and so were pulpy - I know because I've made that mistake in my own garden. The scallops in my secondi dish could have benefited from a good sear in order to impart more flavor. The wine list was good, the service excellent, though I really don't need to know the waiter's name (pet peeve). Overall, very good, but not in the 'elite' category - at least in this one visit.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Bostons best. GreatOne of Bostons best. Great food in a beautiful environment. My veal was incredible. My wife had two pasta dishes that were out of this world. We went home stuffed and happy.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite upscale restaurantOur favorite upscale restaurant in Boston. Great food, service and room. Have eaten here serveral times, and will go back for more visits. It is on a bit expensive, but well worth it.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant I have beenBest restaurant I have been to in a long time. The restaurant is chic and relaxing. The food was outstanding. From the Romaine salad to the dessert, there was nothing but good food. The penne with lamb ragu was delicious, the Wagyu beef meatballs were sumpuous. We also had the veal saltimbocca with was expertly cooked, although I found it a bit boring. The veal Milanese was absolutely delicious!!! The desserts were the finishing touch, the gelato was rich and filling but the warm fried doughnuts, they were delicious!!!!!! Although our server was aloof and seemed disinterested, the service overall was impeccable. It was a wonderful dining experience and I highly recommend this restaurant!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMwe always recommand rosallinawe always recommand rosallina to friends in boston4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for our Easter dinnerWe went for our Easter dinner and it was AMAZING!

So nice to experience the true dining experience!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMService was, unfortunately,Service was, unfortunately, rushed; perhaps due to Restaurant Week? Everything else was fabulous, top notch, at the standard of the best NY restaurants.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, but...Food was excellent. Waitress was borderline unfriendly and unattentive. Appetizer came out fast and then a long wait for the entree.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great service, beautifulThis place is really beautiful, in fact my friend said it was just like the Encore hotel/resort in Las Vegas, one of my favorite places in the world. The food was subtle and fantastic, nothing overdone and presented well. Also, the service, from the front door to the servers and bussers was really great. Everyone was attentive and courteous, without being imposing, which can be a tricky thing to do.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was amazing. LovedEverything was amazing.

Kudos to Mark who was very professional, knowledgable and accommodating. My gf and I came in to take advantage of restaurant week and felt the food and service were still held up to the highest standards. I had the ribeye and my gf had the chicken which were both very delicious. The mashed potatoes were so creamy that we had to ask Mark to bring us an additional side of. We will be back to celebrate a special occasion or maybe even just to have a great meal. Looking forward to trying the foie gras and the Kobe meatballs which we have heard are incredibly mouthwatering! Thanks again Sorellina!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very delicious.Food was very delicious. I was very disappointed with the vegetable and dessert portions. My wife and I ordered from the restaurant week menu, she got the chicken and I got the rib eye. There was one table spoon sized portion of mashed potatoes, one baby parsnip cut in half, and one broccoli crown cut in half. The chocolate dessert was a thin cracker sized portion of cake with three berries and a table spoon of whipped cream. It was disgraceful. I had to order a side of potatoes. This is not my foist time at Sorellina. It is my wife's favorite restaurant for special occasions. We stopped going because it became so expensive. We won't be back because of this last experience.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great night out on SaturdayHad a great night out on Saturday at Sorellina's.

Highly recommand the place3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm one of those yuppie girlsI'm one of those yuppie girls who like to live the high life on a low budget. I believe in paying more in proportion to getting more. Sorellina is worth every penny! But of course I like to take advantage of Restaurant Week :) ...and so does everyone else who knows about this place. Tuesday night at 8:30 the place was absolutely slammed, but the staff just kept their professional cool, coats checked and retrieved, guests seated and served, all like a finely-tuned machine. I've written about the food before, and it was fantastic as usual. The service at Sorellina is equally remarkable. They're so good, you hardly notice they're there. I know they work very hard to make it seem so effortless and I truly appreciate it!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu is low-key (nothingThe menu is low-key (nothing crazy) but a delightful experience nonetheless. The tartare (for appetizer) and salmon (entree) were so delicious despite seeming to be very simple.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything that you wouldEverything that you would expect and more. Visited recently during Boston Restaurant Week and was very pleased. Service was excellent, both the pace and attentiveness. The meal and presentation was also excellent - especially considering the set price. Portions were just the right size. Wine list by the glass offered some great options including the Nebbiolo and a Barolo that we enjoyed. Overall, it was a wonderful evening out and I would definitely return.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Restaurant Week.Went for Restaurant Week.

The service was perfect. We were not rushed between courses. We would definitely go back but
only for a special occasion as it is very pricey.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery much worth it...I've been to Sorellina's several times, and have yet to be disappointed. It is elegant, yet not stuffy...menu is diverse and full of wonderful flavors...from Steak Tartare, to Tuna Tartare to start, the meatballs are fabulous, the steak, the veal milanese...everything is superb. The winelist is wonderful. Great spot...but also, very much reflected in their prices. If you can afford it, go...if you have a special night, and can stretch it, go! Very much worth the overall experience!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMour 1st time but not our last.our 1st time but not our last. wonderful food start to finish. other than a server who disappeared at check time (why do they always seem to do that?!), a virtually perfect experience. highly recommended.2/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding restaurant. TheOutstanding restaurant. The only thing that keeps us from giving it a total rave is that some dishes were better than others. It was a bit heavy on meat and rich dishes, even in the pasta category. It is a classy place with great service--the best I've seen anywhere. More veggies on the menu would be appreciated!!1/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
