Sorellina Ratings and Reviews
Initially we were out off by the hostess but once we were seated the experience improved. The waiter, Mark, was great. Welcoming and informative and not at all pretentious, he put us at ease. Appetizers and dinner were very good, truffle fries are amazing, dessert was very tasty and coffee was excellent.
We were celebrating a special occasion and wanted to dine at a spot that would be memorable. Sorrelina was the perfect choice. From the moment you enter, you feel like you are in an upscale spot and most diners were very well dressed which added to the festive atmosphere. Given how high the ceilings are and the great size of the room, we were delighted that the acoustics were perfect for conversation. The food, though small in portion size, was delicious and our server was professional but friendly. We weren't rushed through dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
My wife and I have been to Sorellina several times around our anniversary and are never disappointed. The food is excellent, the experience upscale, yet in recent years is less stuffy than in the past which we like (despite the formally dressed valets out front and hostesses inside.) Our most recent waiter was not pretentious at all and was very knowledgeable about the menu and accommodated my wife's allergies.
We are always amazed at how quickly appetizers and entrees are served. It may be due to our usually having early reservations and a party of two, but that doesn't seem to happen elsewhere. That said, we never feel like they want us to finish quickly and give up our table for the next guests.
This is the 2nd time eating here and Both times were excellent. The entire experience was well oiled and built to assist the guest. On this last dinning experience the Waiter was Friendly and VERY helpful. From the suggestions of Wine pairings to offering to retrieve my Valet Ticket from my cked jacket. Everything was well prepared and delicious.
We were seated in the worst seat in the house. I made the reservation few months ago for our 5th Anniversary, I was seated behind a huge column and felt claustrophobic. Service and food were ok .... nothing special. I feel it went downhill since the last time we were there , I won’t go back .
My son and I took my wife/his mother to Sorellina for her birthday. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and have no complaints as to food, service or any other dimension. However, this is a very sophisticated restaurant and menu, not a traditional Italian restaurant of the type to be found, say, in Boston's North End. If you are looking for more familiar Italian fare, Sorellina is probably not the ideal choice.
Sorellina's is rightly touted as a top restaurant. The food is meticulously prepared, the ingredients are fresh, and the chefs prepare outstanding classic Italian food. As a vegetarian, however, I was limited to one option. It was good, but I'm unlikely to go back any time soon. The wine list is very good, but there are only a few (well chosen) beer options. I had the mafaldine, which was really good, and the eggplant rollatini, which had small but tasty bits of eggplant and tomato sauce. The people I ate with really liked their food, but they're carnivores.
The food and service are truly exceptional. The dining room is done principally in white, and it presents a modern, tailored, formal but not stuffy appearance. While there is a high ceiling, a large number of baffles have been installed, so conversation is easy. The food is simply delicious - very creative and attractively presented. While there is an Italian tilt to the menu, Sorellina is far from your typical Italian restaurant. Our meals were wonderful - but the salmon and homemade gelato were both outstanding. Service flows like a well-oiled machine. Sorellina is not inexpensive, but it is worth every penny.
The four of us met for our 3- month get to-gether dinner. We went to Sorellina again. As usual we started with cocktails, cocktails, and then the Waiter took our order for Food and Wine. Before the white wine arrived, the appertizers were delivered. The Octopus, gnocchi and Tuna were all good but it came out before the cocktails were finished and the wine received.
Second course, again, came out less than 5 minutes after first course was taken away and the red wine was even delivered. Main courses of Veal, Fish and Pasta were all great as usual.
Why is Sorellina in such a rush to get us out of there. We had planned to be there for a while, as we usually do for our get-to-gethers, But Sorellina had other ideas. And, the restaurant was not that crowded, they did not really need our table. So, after dinner and coffee, we Left!
Will we be back for future get-togethers, I doubt it! There are too many other Boston restaurants that will not RUSH us out!
