    Sorella’s was excellent! Everyone in our party of eight loved their dinner. The veal chop parmesan was outstanding. Their drink and dessert menu is really good as well.

    The service was really incredible! G was our server and we would recommend asking for him by name if you have the chance to make a request. He was very personable, friendly, made great recommendations throughout our dinner and helped make celebrating my husband’s birthday memorable. The bartender made a perfect dirty martini and also made a mocktail for our kids! The grilled octopus is the best in the area, definitely dont skip trying that! The kids ate the frito misto so fast, that we barely got a bite! My husband and I also got the yellow tail crudo and that was so tender and delicious. Try the sweet heat pizza, it was mild but with bold flavors coming from the honey and peppers. You really cant go wrong with the pasta, all of it is house made. The only dish I wouldn’t recommend was the seafood pasta special they offered at the time. It was too heavy and the cheese and seafood was overwhelming together. Though the ravioli’s shouldn’t be skipped! For dessert we had the zeppole which we fantastic and the chocolate olive oil cake! A really great experience all around and we will be back

    Lovely dinner out for my son’s 10th birthday and Mother’s Day. Restaurant is quite wide open so noise is high but the food and service was wonderful. Loved the Venetian Mask cocktail and Gin martinis! Hunter was our server and he is excellent!!!

    Another wonderful lunch at Sorella’s! Soft shell crab appetizer, and the goat cheese ravioli with bolognese sauce were both awesome. And one of the best dirty martinis I’ve had in awhile. Our waitress, Melissa, was great.

    The meatball pizza is amazing, Also the margherita pizza is very good too. The bruschetta is very good and I suggest the pesto lasagna. Short rib lamuche. Although the tiramisu is pretty much all ladyfinger cake. It still tastes good but there’s pretty much no mascarpone cheese unless it’s in the cake? But I didn’t really notice any except some at the bottom. Just needs more tiramisu mix The service was great and I can’t wait to go back again

    A new gem to the VB area. The selection of pastas and pizza will not disappoint if you are looking for a fresh, handmade option. Cocktails offer a refreshing accompaniment to the dishes, but pair the wine for the best experience. Highlights included the octopus, homemade focaccia and the bucatini. Be sure to save room for the chocolate olive oil cake. In a cuisine synonymous with family, Sorellas makes you feel at home with every bite!

    My only real issue was the temperature of the food. Nothing came out hot except the coffee. The aranchini, which is fried, was luke warm and even a little cold in the middle. The lasagna and pasta dishes we ordered were also only warm. The flavors were amazing and the service was great. I just wish the food was served hot.

    We went to Sorella on a Sunday afternoon so we were able to take advantage of happy hour. We sat out on the patio on a wonderfully warm day and it was lovely. We had the arancini, the misto fritto and the prosciutto pizza. All were delicious. We tried the pastas and they were all delicious. The service was professional without being stuffy. Cannot recommend enough

    Food was very good! Recommend charcuterie and ravioli. If you’re getting pasta I would recommend getting an appetizer or salad because the portions are a bit smaller (but it’s homemade, really high quality dishes). Excellent dirty martini. Also had chocolate olive oil cake… my only complaint of the night was the small cake portion. I was sad when it was over too soon. 100% will be back!

    This is the second time I have had dinner at Sorella’s and find the food not good- not enough variety and for the money not a good value. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant - to friends and family. I go often to Eurasia and Atlantic on Pacific - but will not go back to this one again.

    Wonderful new restaurant in Virginia Beach. Wife thought asparagus crab pizza was best pizza ever had. Long happy hour with many discounts. Nice curated wine list and modest ($25) corkage fee. Terrific in house made pasta. Wide selection on menu. Chef knows what doing. Attentive service and all staff pitch in. Unobtrusive but nothing missed. Valet parking. Will definitely come back. Highly recommended.
