Diner Reviews
  • "I love that Christine, Michael and the staff remember me and my guests and create a great rapport with every visit. The current garlic festival offerings are innovative and exceptional, and the wine is always good! A favourite "go-to" restaurant."

  • "Always a pleasure to dine here. Great food/service and ambiance"

  • "This room is just missing the "Rat Pack". Digging the subtle ambience, and decore, and the food moves hand in hand. Great location across from the Westin Hotel, and several other clubs for drinking afterwards. I like this restaurant for its attentive staff, and as a great starting point for a night out. Bravo Sorrentinos..!!"

  • "Been here before, usually for an early supper before seeing a play Food and service is usually very good with the odd drop down to good and the occasional rise to outstanding. This meal was one of the latter where everything was excellent. The 4 stars out of 5 I've given for food and service is actually too low - should be 4.5. My wife and I shared the Quinoa salad. We've never had it before and this salad has convinced us to explore quinoa further. My wife had the Tagliatelle (with chicken) which she has had before and as usual it was very good bordering on outstanding. I had the Veal Piccata Al Limone which I've not had before and it was outstanding. Veal was perfect and wonderfully served by the tartness of the lemon."

  • "Ordered the Veal... They didn't have any. Who ever heard of an Italian Restaurant not having Veal? Ordered the Lamb... Was over praised at $45 for small portion. Who ever heard of serving Lamb and not having any Mint? Ordered a bottle of White wine... It was "Luke warm". Overall, we thought it was overpriced."

  • "We had a great time at the restaurant, close to the Winspear, attentive service, excellent food"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Normally service was very quick but this visit took about 20 minutes to take our order and we recieved our lunch after 50 minutes of our arival. Our water glasses did not get topped up at all during our visit. Didnt give us much time to enjoy our food on our lunch time."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "We were happy to get seated a little early and found the atmosphere to be a bit loud and busy, but as people were leaving it got quieter. The steaks were prepared to perfection and the wine choices were excellent. All in all a very good dining experience that we would highly recommend to anyone . The location of the restaurant also suited us as we were able to walk to and from our hotel."

  • "My daughter and I had a very good memorable dinner prior to the theatre.Our server was very attentive despite his large number of tables. We especially like the mussels that we had to start"

  • "We needed up choosing this restaurant last minute when looking for an Italian place to eat on a Friday night. They took a last minute rezo for 5 (2 children included). The service was the best I have experienced in all of Edmonton! From the moment we walked in the door it was obvious that this establishment valued quality service. Throughout the meal the incredible service continued with the extremely friendly wait staff. When our food came the experience was just over the top. I ordered a seafood pasta dish that was heavenly - the scallops and muscles were cooked to absolute perfection and the sauce was addictive. Because the atmosphere was so relaxed the kids had a great time too! I would eat there again no question."

  • "Went for valentines this year. Tables were decorated with rose petals and there was an accordion player walking around. Great food, romantic setting, very good overall."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Everyone enjoyed their drinks and meal, I personally had the bison canneloni, the smoked mozzarella added to the rich flavour from the cream sauce and mushrooms. On a personal note the Caesar dressing could have used a little more anchovies and garlic for my tastes but very good none the less."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "We have been going to this location for about 15 years and they always amaze us. Service and then some is their expertise. The food is exceptional and the menu changes constantly."

  • "Made reservations in plenty of time. Was an early reservation and restaurant was not even near half full. They chose to set us by kitchen entrance where you could easily hear dish washer going. I requested to move."

  • "Have you notice the noise level in some of the new trendy restaurant? I love the fact that in this restaurant I could have a nice conversation with my guest and not have the table next to me be able to hear it. I love the warm and coziness of the place and the old school manners and skills of the staff. Plus the food was excellant. The Calamari was the best I have in years."

  • "We actually only wanted something in walking distance from our hotel in Downtown due to the cold temperature and the team at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald suggested Sorrentino's to us. The GM of the restaurant welcomed us as it wasn't really busy on a Saturday night and helped us with the wine list. His recommendation was great and went well with our food order. The way they suggest to order the Antipasti (a little bit tapas style) is great and the waitress was amazingly helpful. Pasta is housemade and you taste it! Wonderful! Great traditional and some experimental pasta dishes. The portions were so generous that we took a pass on desert... Will go back there!"

  • "We went out for Valentines Day. The service was slow and our appetizers weren't very hot. It is a beautiful restaurant, might want to try a night that isn't so busy or the normal menu."

  • "Couldn't be happier with the food , service and ambience!!! One of the best downtown Edmonton restaurants !!!!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Went on valentines day. It was super busy but the server was very polite, apologetic and funny. The three cheese ravioli was superb but the dessert, nutella cannoli (a biscuit like item rolled with nutella) was very plain and cheap. The server Simon made it worth the trip."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Took my girlfriend as a special Valentine's date and it was phenomenal. The dining area was very intimate and quiet. They had an accordion player bringing great ambiance to the whole affair and the food (a special Valentine's menu) was to die for."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My dearly beloved and I beat the Valentine Day rush by a day and we each enjoyed a delicious lemon veal schnitzel with a very enjoyable (but a bit overpriced) New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, a decadent chocolate dessert and tasty coffee."

  • "Excellent service for a busy Saturday night. Food was excellent and the waiter was very helpful and attentive. Would definitely return to the downtown location, as it felt more upscale then the south side location. The owner complimented us with an aperitif at the end of our meal!!! Fantastic!!"

  • "My wife and I choose a stay-cation in downtown Edmonton to celebrate our two birthdays in January and we chose Sorrentino's as our restaurant for dinner. We felt very welcome from coat check to departure and our waiter was wonderful. He was knowledgable, fun and attentive, but not intrusive as we enjoyed a very delicious meal. We had tomatoes di bufala as our appetizer and the angel hair pasta with shrimp as our main course. Both items were very fresh and flavourful. The waiter was also very accommodating for my wife's food allergies. The meal was completed with a tasty complementary tiramisu for our birthday. The whole experience was wonderful and not that expensive including some wine and special coffees."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Disappointed with our service and our meals. Have always loved the room and the entire Sorrentino's chain of restaurants, but our visit this time was disappointing at best and thus we probably will not return to this location."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "The food was fantastic, for four people having a drink, apps, salad, main and desert it was 270 but worth every dime, one of edmonton a gems"

  • "We were out with another couple that we had not seen for several months and our evening at Sorrentino's was the perfect place to catch up. Our server was attentive without hovering and the great wine selection met everyone's needs. The "tastes" were an interesting appetizer and our mains were delicious. No room for dessert but we certainly didn't feel pressured to leave. Overall, a great evening!"

  • "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."
