  • "really enjoyed the service. a treat to dine out in an atmosphere of elegance and refinement. it was later and not super busy so we were relaxed and could chat. food was good."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "As always, an elegant place to dine with fine furnishings and decore. Food is expertly prepared and tasty. Large portions so on this night we skipped dessert. Try the lobster cannelloni - yummy. Dinner for two with a bottle of (averaged priced) wine, tip & tax approx. $130."

  • "Sorrentino's Downtown is one of my favorite restaurants. I brought my Mom in for her birthday and Christine and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome--and my mom feel special. I have a hard time straying from eating anything but their unique spaghetti carbonara because it is so delicious but the tomato/mozzarella/basil panini that my Mom had may tempt me the next time I visit."

  • "We had a fantastic experience! Our server, Tara, was attentive and congenial. From the first course of bruschetta for everyone to the salads to the main courses to dessert, every bite was delicious. There were great choices for the vegetarians among us, too. I would highly recommend the lemon oil cake for dessert - bursting with flavour! Thanks for an awesome evening!!!"

  • "Even though I haven't been in years they still have some of the same classic items on their menu like the cannelloni. The downtown location makes it with bison and the sauce is AMAZING!!! Pair it with bruschetta, Caesar salad and dessert and you have a meal you will dream about!"

  • "I loved that this traditional Italian restaurant had a really progressive menu. It had some delicious, unique offerings PLUS if you're a vegetarian, gluten-free or vegan individual, there are options for you too. I am not from Edmonton but I will go back the next time I am in town for business. "

  • "Sorrentino's Downtown is one of my favorite lunch spots. The staff are friendly and very attentive and the food is always delicious and quick. When I've come for dinner, it is just as good. I can't get enough of their unique Spaghetti Carbonara. "

  • "Overall the food was good and the service was excellent. They offer a simple yet exciting menu with a good choice of what you would expect from an Italian restaurant. I would definitely return."

  • "Supper for four before taking in a play was a great success. The food was excellent, as was the service. Our server knew her wine list, made sure she understood out time requirements, and everything unfolded in an efficient but unhurried manner. We'll be back!"

  • "My husband and I took my Mother here for Mother's Day supper. Our server was outstanding -- so friendly, funny, and attentive. My Mom and I both tried the crab salad and were disappointed....partially b/c perhaps we don't enjoy cold crab as much as hot? And it just didn't have a lot of flavour. But the main dishes were amazing. And we sampled some of my husband's dessert which was also incredible. So all in all a good experience, with just one low point."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Food was great. Service was good. Staff knew we were seeing a show across the street and made sure we stayed on time. Service would have been 4* except they had a habit of overasking if everything was ok and thereby interrupting our conversation. Love Sorrentinos and would definitely go again."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "We have been here before the Theatre at least a dozen times over the last 3 years. We have never been disappointed with the food or the service. The culture at Sorrentio's seems to be: Serve great food and do it with well trained intelligent staff. What more could you want!"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Reserved a table for Mother's Day. The food was amazing, Sorrentino's definitely knows how to make the best of a special occasion! "

  • "Food and service was excellent, although we had an early reservation their specials (complementary drink) was not offered till our dessert course. Other than that would of been five stars."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Food was excellent and we love dining there but this time our waitress rushed us through the dinner. We hadn't finished our wine when the desert showed up right after the plates from dinner were taken away"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The salmon was outstanding - medium rare with a dark crust. The disappointment with the meal was the asparagus served with it. They were very thick and had not been snapped. As a result I could only eat the very tips. The grape tomato & olive salad served alongside was great. We shared a Caesar salad that was well balanced with lemon, garlic and anchovy flavours. My companion's meal was the rib-eye. The steak was perfectly cooked but there was a bit of gristle and part of the steak was not as tender as it should have been. Seasonings were great on both meals. Our server was Kasha and she was particularly wonderful - always close when we needed her but not hovering. Her wine recommendation was perfect. "

  • "Most restaurants are only interested in taking your money. Service and food quality are secondary in their scope. Sorrentino's Downtown is different. The passion they have for serving gourmet food is evident from the top down. From the time you enter the restaurant until the time you leave you're made to feel like you're a VIP. Service is king and everything that follows is perfection. They know their business and it's obvious they care about your experience. But be warned this type of class isn't cheap but in my opinion you do get what you pay for. A truly elegant dinning experience."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Food was mediocre at best; I've been to garlic fest three times at the Calgary Trail location and been satisfied each time, but this time there was almost no garlic (despite ordering +3), and many of the dishes were a bit bland. In fact, they forgot to add the garlic into the soup, and apologized when I brought it up, but did not take it off the bill, which is something that I would expect from any half-decent restaurant. Even ignoring that, service was atrocious; it's no exaggeration to say that I've truly never had such a pushy server in my life (kept trying to get us to order wine, more appetizers, desserts, etc...). And I don't mean mentioned it, I really mean pushed. I will definitely never be back. "

  • "Had a business dinner for 6 at Sorrentino's. The large round table was the perfect format for this type of dinner. The menu was creative (garlic festival) and very fun. Our waiter was knowledgable and solicitous without being instrusive. I would definitely go back. "
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "Came here for my mom's 60th birthday and really enjoyed our time. Service was fantastic from the start to finish. Pasta was super tasty and my mom enjoyed her salmon. Prices are a little on the high side but we would come again for a special occasion. "

  • "We recently ate here before Seeing Mary Poppins at citadel with our 5 & 8 year old kids. We dressed up the kids and told them this was a fancy night for our family. The staff were lovely with them and the kids were well behaved.Our food and service were excellent and we all had a great night. I would come back without kids too. "

  • "Great food and excellent service. would recommend for special occasions and group functions. staff is very friendly. "

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
