    For me, Sorella never fails to please. The Chicken meatballs as a starter are excellent. Several of us (five in all) had the special which was Sausage and peppers -- outstanding. The beet salad is actually enough for two as I took half of it home. The beets were also a winner. Good drinks with expert service made the evening a wonderful experience.

    We partner and I went out for a special dinning evening and Sorella really hit the spot. The food, staff, and ambience were amazing. We both got pasta dishes that were absolutely phenomenal, though the smell and sight of pizzas coming out of the kitchen made us question if we made the right choice. We will definitely be back to trip more of the food. 10/10

    Anniversary dinner. The cocktail I had (Buzzword) had a great level of spice, and since everywhere online talked about the pork chops, I ordered those. Never ordered pork chops at a restaurant before and I probably won’t again since I doubt other will compare to the ones here. The cherry pepper sauce really set it over the top. Fantastic overall service!

    Loved every bite. The 4 of us raved with every bite of the homemade cavatelli pasta, and for the first time, I understood why people like gnocchi! I tasted the potato and not just a little dough ball. We also enjoyed the cauliflower and broccoli. Simple ingredients done well!

    Ratings far better than atmosphere or food. Salad was inedible, swimming in vinegar. We were asked if we wanted salad before meal and we said yes. Both salad and meal came at the same time. Veal on special menu was so tough, it was hard to cut.

    We were seated in the lovely tent as rain threatened - we were pleased with the change from the fully outdoor option as it did sprinkle. The server was friendly and prompt. The wine selections were varied and delicious. The mussels were surprisingly tasty in a spicy breadcrumb coating . The sea bass special with olives.onions and capers was fabulous. Although the chocolate panna cotta was excellent, the chocolate topping made it slightly too rich. It was a memorable, unique and outstanding meal.

    My only criticism is that I wish you would add more traditional pasta entrees to your menu. I was craving either home made lasagna or fettuccine algredo & was disappointed neither was featured on the menu. The pizza was a good substitute.

    First time here—what ambiance and a special place, indeed. Service and greeting by the owner was wonderful. We had two pizzas—marinara and the sausage. We are tough critics and the pizzas were world-class. Quality ingredients, tasty crust—just perfection. We can’t wait to return. Also, on a side note..the restrooms were spa-like. Nice to know that is important to the owners as well. We are still talking about the food and experience today…and wish we didn’t live in Illinois so we could truly become regulars! Please enjoy—Sorella is a must!

    We've been there before and have really enjoyed. Not sure about this last experience it was very hit and miss. Very friendly waitress but of course overwhelmed with tables. Extremely Loud and difficult to talk. Rice ball appetizer very plain and unappealing. Salad was great. Not enough vegetarian options would have loved an eggplant mushroom simple pasta that being said the sauce is very good. Our guests had Cavaletti pasta with the meat which was just very dense and heavy. They felt that it didn't have enough meat on the dish. It was a special occasion but it didn't feel like one particularly at this restaurant.

    Dined here a few years back (as Kindred) and enjoyed the location, so I wanted to return to experience it as Sorella. Really enjoyed both the Lamb & Eggplant Meatballs (incredibly tasty sauce) and an excellent Margherita Pizza with bright orange cherry tomatoes. Although fine, a few bits of the Artichoke Cacio e Pepe were a touch woody. Sorella has a bright contemporary ambiance with comfortable booth and well-spaced table seating. Pleasant for both date night and casual. The bar room is offset from the main dining room, so it's a touch more intimate. Service was just fine. All in all, we'll be back.
