My husband and I both had the lamb, it was ok but I couldn’t finish it, it gave me a bad taste in my mouth. The waiter never checked on us after delivering our food and we had to hunt him down to get our check. Nice atmosphere but we also got the table closest to the door and it was chilly. Will not visit again.

Here’s a gem in the Bay View neighborhood we didn’t know existed. Excellent ambience and food to match. Order this stew thingy for an appetizer. Man, that was tasty. We didn’t have room for dessert, which also looked great. Our first time; looking forward to coming back already. We stayed in the attached guesthouse right above the restaurant. We assumed after dinner we were going to hear diners down below. Nope. Quiet as could be.

Fantastic food. Acoustics were not good for older people with hearing aids to hold a conversation with the table. Take out would be amazing if offered to have awesome food and quiet of home.

Overall, a great experience with great service and solid wine selection. Upon entering the restaurant, one does feel as if you've invaded the tables near the door. The bar is inviting and if it is full or busy, there is not a lot of space to stand.

Once seated, the setting is very comfortable and we loved the limited menu and printed specials. One downside is that drinks are only in the wine list and not on the menu, specifically, wines by the glass. With a party of 5 and only one wine list, it was a challenge to order drinks when one hadn't seen the drink menu/wine list, yet. Securing a second wine list was an odd challenge.

Once we overcame that brief hiccup, everything else was smooth.

The service was outstanding but the atmosphere was way louder than we expected. The food, for the price, was not really worth it.

For Christmas our son and daughter-in-law gave us a gift certificate to Sorella. A friend of theirs had said it was her new favorite place. It may be ours too!
The moment we walked through the doors we were greeted by friendly staff and we were delighted with the look and feel of Sorella.
There were four of us in our party and we each had different selections for dinner; Cavatelli with Monday Sauce, which was homemade pasta with a sauce of broken meatballs, sausages and pork ragu, with ricotta. I can attest, very flavorful and yummy; Pork Chop in sweet cherry pepper sauce; Veal Marsala with loads of mushrooms and one of their specials of the day of Lamb, Osso Buco style, served with Polenta. (I think I heard my husband moaning in delight as he ate).
Our waitress was very personable and delightful. We were pleasantly surprised that they seemed to have plenty of wait staff moving throughout, so we were served promptly. There was a nice flow.
I can't say enough good things about our experience!

the waiter was great and my drink was fantastic kind of like a mojito and delicious !!
My husband had the tuna which he said was good but kind of thick with breading and my friend has the lamb shank which he said was great. The only dud in the meal department was my short rib ziti. There was really no sauce or cheese or even much seasoning and basically it was shredded short ribs with noodles. I was super disappointed , I feel like this was just kind of thrown together without much thought.

Salad had old iceberg lettuce and too much dressing and too spicy. Drinks were skimpy. Pork chop accompaniments were extremely spicy and drowned out all other food flavors.
Nice setting but we won’t return. It was not worth the $100 price.

If the 4 dishes we ordered only one was good. The others had no flavor and one was even watery. We could have made better food at home. It’s skip the Restraunt.

We went on a Saturday night and sat at the bar. It was our second time there and the food was just as fantastic as the first time! We had the kale caesar and charred broccoli to start and pepperoni pizza and chicken cacciatore special to follow. I could eat that broccoli every day! Everything was fresh, delicious and perfectly executed. We had some excellent wine and were blown away by the service. The bartenders were informative, kind, attentive and very personable. I work in the service industry and know it’s been rough … so it was refreshing to feel so taken care of and like it was worth every penny and second. We stayed longer than expected because we were enjoying ourselves so much! Definitely will be a new regular spot for us. Thank you!! Highly recommend.

It was our first visit to Sorella. Our party size changed from 2 to 4 so I called to see if we could be accommodated. I was told that couldn’t be accommodated as there were no 4 seat tables unless there was a cancellation. We kept our 2 seat table. As we were dining, we noticed that there were 4 4 -seat tables that were seating only 2 patrons. We loved the food, service, and prices were reasonable but would have liked to have been accommodated. Sorella missed out on money made on 2 patrons who would have had 2 dinners.

Had a good time at Sorella. Was recommended to me by a friend. The food good but not anything special, not many options, and mostly the pizza was good because of the sauce. Definitely wouldn’t come here again but it was nice to try.

Really delicious, the brussel sprouts and rice balls were fantastic. We shared with 4, plenty to start with. Very nice selection of cocktails. My wine was really nice, a chardonney, buttery and well priced. Main courses, 2 of us had pasta and 2 pizza, all 4 were fantastic! Our server did a wonderful job, very detailed. Will be going back!

Everything about our experience was amazing. Our server was wonderful and the food was out of this world. The pizzeria chop salad was delicious. We shared a margherita pizza and the cavatelli pasta. So good! And the complimentary limoncello to finish off the meal was a nice touch. Can’t wait to return!

Have passed by a number of times - it's a place that intrigues. You must make the trip up the steps and see for yourself. Dining room was bright and inviting, but not so loud that you couldn't hear the person next to you. Bar area (separate room, but large entry way in between) seemed cool; but it's hard to feel the true separation between dining room and bar - so just know that the bar feels part of the dining experience. Maybe a further away table would have made me feel different. Otherwise, the ambience, service, especially the tasty food - were all great.
