Wonderful Mother's DayOur family of 10 were seated as soon as we arrived. We had reservations for 6:00 pm. The restaurant was packed with Mother's Day patrons. We were served efficiently, warm and friendly service. Food was very good. I had one of the specials and it was fabulous! My husband and I wlll dine there again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best Italian in Bethesda!This restaurant is by far the best original Italian food we have found in Bethesda! All the food was like being in Italy. Prosciutto and ricotta stuffed wheat homemade ravioli and eggplant Parmesan along with a bottle of Ruffino Chianti made this a night to remember! Our waiter from Sicily was excellent and helped with our selections. The homemade desserts were extraordinary. Do try their appetizer of mussels in marinara! We will return every chance we get when we return to Bethesda!
Giovanni and his parents have the "real deal" here at Sorento! You won't be disappointed with this beautiful place!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBethesda's "go-to" Italian placeOne of our very favorite neighborhood restaurants. Sorrento never disappoints. There are nearly always specials that are irresistible, but the regular menu is also excellent and varied. "Papa", the owner and chef, also is a genius with his personally made desserts. The family-owned restaurant conveys a family-friendly atmosphere, and it is our "go-to" Bethesda dining spot for our out of town visitors.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMelinda was our server tonightMelinda was our server tonight and was extremely efficient and friendly. The food, as always, was outstanding. I would recommend going when the restaurant is less hectic.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, sophisticated and warmIn a town of overpriced, noisy, overstimulating and mediocre restaurants, the Trattoria stands out as a wonderful and authentic joy. The proprietors, a family, are devoted to their craft. The fish is particularly well
done, in subtle and flavorful ways. A good place for folks who struggle with background din - small and quiet. If you enjoy intimate,more sophisticated restaurants rather than corporate gigantism you will love this place.
Bottom line: a wonderful counterpoint to the over engineered, overpriced pretentiousness of DC dining.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy Sorrento --We always enjoy Sorrento -- the food is delicious and the service perfect.
