We were disappointed to find that the pasta is no longer made in house. The server explained that the chef has changed, which could be a factor in why this hyped-up restaurant fell a bit flat. Our food was fine, but nothing stood out as excellent. Just good enough food without much passion. Service was also fine, but a bit bland like the food. I’ll continue my search for an excellent Italian restaurant in the Woodlands. Unfortunately this wasn’t it.

Food and ambience was great. Place was busy and service was a bit slow but they recognized it and threw a delicious tiramisu. Nice, peaceful evening. Enjoyed by all.

My wife and I lived in central Houston for 25+ years, and we miss its great restaurants a great deal. We had a long-term partnership dinner with serious foodies from in-town and out-of-town. We were worried. We followed the recommendation of our new dermatologist, and Sorriso came through. Outstanding food, great service, and a solid Italian-focused wine list. We are happy to have a go-to place for serious adult meals in The Woodlands.

We haven’t been to Sorriso in a while & definitely not since the pandemic began in March. We were warmly greeted & hand sanitizer along with your choice of disposable or virtual menus were available. We felt comfortable seated at a proper distance from other diners. Our waiter was welcoming & helpful with making food selections. The owner was helpful in a wine selection & very friendly as well. Our food was wonderful - the complimentary bread basket is wonderful & the meatball appetizer was so good! Hubby had the tomato & mozzarella salad (which I tasted!) & it was delicious. For my entree I had the Chicken Scarppariello & loved it! Hubby had the Colossal Chicken Parmesan & it was awesome. Our only complaint was other patrons not wearing masks as they moved about the restaurant. Otherwise an enjoyable evening.

Our new Italian place. It’s attached to the Westin on the Waterway. OMG.. Bellismo... Great wine- average $50-75 bottle of vine and Italian forward but have everything!! Octopus was perfect!!! My son had their meatball with spaghetti, my hubby had their short rib ragout with the pasta of the day and I have their delicious penne alla vodka!!! We finished with their cannoli!! Absolutely will be back. Scott was our waiter and led us through the menu. He did an amazing job!’ We will be back. They also have an upstairs club that does live music Friday and Saturday nights!! Definitely one to put on your list to try!

Our starter ( Meatball) was actually quite good and the bread was delicious. Sadly the rest of the meal was quite bland flavor wise and my fish was way over cooked. Don't think we'll be eating here again.

Hyped as a Northern Italian food restaurant. But many of the dishes are actually more Southern, such as the Arancini (Sicilian) , Pasta fra diavolo, the meat ball. The food is lovely but marketed as being from the wrong region of Italy

My experience at Sorriso was as a single diner on a Sunday evening. The staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive. The atmosphere is contemporary and pleasant. There were only four other tables seated in the restaurant along with a couple of parties seated at the bar. Perhaps it was due to COVID-19 precautions. Overall I was disappointed with the quality of the food. I started with a mixed salad, which was ample and fresh. However, it was so heavily dressed with a balsamic vinaigrette that the dressing coated every leaf of green and overpowered the salad. My main course was their "Spaghetti Amatriciana." The portion was fine - neither too small or large. However, the sauce was very watery and hardly any would cling to the pasta. It collected like a thin soup about 1/2 inch deep in the serving bowl. The recipe used also is not a truly authentic Amatriciana preparation. It included sliced garlic and thinly sliced pancetta rather than guanciale. This is a shame as they do list guanciale as part of their carbonara dish. I'm grateful for the service, and the bread was good, but would not return for the food from my first experience.

Consistently amazing food, wine, & service. We visit here about once every other month. Only thing is that it is VERY noisy. Not necessarily the patrons being unusually loud. I’m assuming it’s just the overall design of the restaurant. Voices just echo about. A bit bothersome. But, not enough to stop coming.

As usual, our meal at Sorriso’s was super enjoyable.
We’re biased, because this is our favorite (Italian) restaurant. The food is first rate and imaginative. The service is second to none, and we love the the Coravin wine program, which allows us to get a glass of some of very best wine, without buying the bottle.
Try it, you won’t be sorry.
