Great restaurant for special occasion. From the moment we walked in, you could feel the sophistication of this Italian restaurant. Everything is done with quality (food and service) and is sure to impress for any occasion. I would highly recommend the Maccheroncelli - meat balls and pasta in a Montepulciano wine sauce reduction. I've never come across anything quite like it and it was fantastic!

Food tasted great initially but was very time sensitive. Both Salmon and pasta tasted poor after only a few minutes of being served. The temperature control could have been better, as the food became cold much too quickly. Possibly consider heating up the plates. Both my girlfriend and I had upset stomachs after we left Sorellina. It is worth trying for a special occasion, but I think 1 time is enough for us.

Excellent food, but preposterous prices. Wait staff promotes truffled dishes without so much as a wink or a grin. Upscale decor, and if you want a break from restaurants where even big spenders don't bother to change out of their denim and sweatshirts, you won't feel uncomfortable wearing business casual or better.

Light was not very good, pretty dark, but environment was perfect and the food is satisfying. We had lobster butternut Squash soup, tuna tartare for appetizer and a calamari to share, which were all good, tuna tartare may be a little bit spicy for people who don’t like spicy food. The entrees were also good, rib eye was big and definitely enough for dinner, my Scallop, my brother’s veal were very delicate, the chicken was kind of dry. We had a chocolate to share as dessert, quite normal not impressive. Overall was good.

The ambiance was a little pretentious. A table close by were frequent diners and their demands were distracting and the staff was on eggshells and it took away from my service and overall experience.

We went there for a family dinner. We had two who will eat everything and 2 more fussy vegetarian types.

The total veg. Was gracefully accommodated by delicious sides of squash, potatoes and tortellini. Together we had burrata, Caesar salad, lamb chops , chicken, molten chocolate and sorbet. All were excellent.

Service was accommodating and gracious.

All in all a 5 star experience.

This is really not a place for small children. It’s expensive and boring for them as dining tends to take time. I think it was tough for a 14 year old .there were a few well behaved kids there but I think that it’s hard.

The quintessential table by the kitchen door, complete with cold draft from front door. They should just eliminate that table in a restaurant of this caliber. Service superb, immensely friendly and knowledgeable server. Crazy good tiramisu.

Spectacular food, beautifully presented, efficient waitstaff. It is very expensive, but worth it for a very special dinner. My only comment is that it is a hair too dim - if the lamps hanging over the tables could be turning up a notch, that would make it perfect.

Elegant and Excellent!! Magnificent and stately. These are the words that come to my mind in describing our dining experience at Sorellina. My pasta with meat sauces was so delicious and perfectly prepared. The filet mignon was one of the most tasty and tender filets, rivaling expensive steakhouses I have dined in. The veal chop milanese was exquisitely prepared , moist and tender. A five star experience in dining. I should also mention that the service was also five star.

Great option for a high-end business meal. My out of town vendor requested Italian, and this is a great option with convenient valet, without the congestion and hassle of going to the North End. Service was very nice, without being intrusive, and the food and place settings were definitely on point.

In Boston for medical reasons. Restaurant was not recommended by friends due to price. Restaurant atmosphere was great. Service was great. Food was good. Had the salmon. Have had better. Portion size was small. Ordered side of mashed potatoes because there were no substitutions on the vegetables. Side order rather small.
