Perfect table to enjoy my husband’s retirement! My salmon salad w/shrimp was sooo delicious. My husband loved his blackened salmon too...done just right!

Food was appetizing. I had the lasagna and my husband the chicken parm. Ambiance was great, just felt prices are a little high.

We had the most amazing dinner at Sarento's after our vows renewal in the Dells. Our waitress was beyond spectacular. She made the night extra special for us. She had wonderful suggestions for meals and was nice as can be. We sat in the same room that we had our dinner in the night of our wedding five years ago and it made the evening even more special. Can't wait to come back again! Thank you!

The reservation I made was filled right away, great experience with that I had no wait. Refills were constantly done which was nice. The server did not ask if we were there for any particular reason (birthday) to engage conversation. The sauce on my pasta was very very spicy, I was not satisfied with the food.

Delicious italian food. I didn't really want pasta, but was able to find a suitable meal, which was great. Service was excellent. When I ordered a martini, I got a glass of vodka with an olive, I will put that in plus column :-). Shout out to the waiting stuff, the ladies really work well as a team, if one gets busy with a big table, others cover for her seamlessly, I was impressed. I didn't have to wait and everyone was happy. Very recommended.

My steak was a bit tasteless and the au jus was sweet. Never had sweet au jus before. My relatives had pasta dishes and we're satisfied and one had pizza and they said it was equal to Chicago pizza. Maybe next time, I will order the pizza instead.
The service was impeccable.

An excellent choice for dining in the Dells area!

We stopped in late after traveling all day and sat at the bar with the kids (12 + 17). There was live singing entertainmenton the same side next to us but it wasn't too loud to be annoying. We shared apps and main courses (I recommend the house Lasgna, and the seafood Cannelloni, if the have it available).

Portions are very generous and there is no problem with them splitting anything to share. Prices are very reasonable, drinks are well made, and service was excellent and friendly.

They are one of the few places open late and offer a good variety of flavorful dishes.

Surprising solid meal. Get worried about touristy areas, but enjoyed the lasagna. The calamari was breaded and more of a chicken nugget style, so it was not as light as I normally like it. Also, the cannoli shell was not made in house and filling is very light. More whip cream them marscapone.
As for a vacation place to eat, not as greasy and hard not the gut. Solid meal and cut fit the full family.

Sarento's is a very good family style Italian restaurant with food that is above average. Server was very friendly and patient with our slow ordering. Would recommend anyone who wants decent food, good atmosphere and friendly service.

Food was really pretty good and very reasonable. Loved the Sarento Salad, my broiled cod was a little dry but my husband’s fish Fry was fantastic. The tiramisu for dessert was huge and delicious. We will go back.

The food was beyond mediocre. Cheese pizza for kids was dry with cheese constantly separating from the dough. I ordered ravioli that arrived literally swimming in Alfredo sauce. I could hardly find pasta in the bowl of sauce that tasted like commercial one, out of the can. Will not go back and would not recommend.

The few issues I have, would be that the veal was very overcooked and rubbery, and the decor is worse for ware. Also the recessed lighting in the dropped ceiling was falling out in places.

Clam Chowder was good; unfortunately, all was downhill from there. Friday night, I ordered the fried cod (I know, Italian restaurant, don't order something that's not Italian!). Really wasn't much more than fish sticks. Long John Silvers has better tasting fried cod. Baked potato was good. Definitely will not be returning.

Went there on a Thursday night before Memorial Day. Made a reservation for 6:45 but didn't need to. Might need to on weekends and summer weekdays. Excellent service. The food was outstanding.

A night out with our daughter & son in law for a belated birthday dinner. Nice basket of warm garlic Breadsticks brought to the table soon after we were seated. Tasty, tender Calamari with Marinara for an appetizer. Nicely presented Salads with the house Italian Balsamic Dressing. Our entrees were Chicken Parma, 2 Penne Italiano (substituted with linguine) & a Veal Picatta. Everyone was pleased with their entree choice. We had very friendly, attentive service by 3 people. Water glasses always full. Nice Italian ambience. We are seasonals at Lake Delton & this is one of favorite places to dine out. Whenever I get hungry for Chicken Parmesan this is my place to go.

I had the trio filet and it was honestly the best and most tender thing I have ever had in my life. It was outstanding. My husband had the parmesan fish and really liked it as well. The server was wonderful as well. We had made a reservation and our table was still occupied by the previous people, but they gave us a cozy little spot in the back which turned out to be perfect because it was just the right size and it was much more private then anything else.
The waitstaff was very attentive and our glasses were never empty. Overall we will be returning again for date night!

The quality and portions of the food were poor and small. For a $26 plate, I expected much more. This was our second time trying the restaurant and both visits failed to impress. Olive Garden for half the price and better quality will be our choice for local Italian in the future.

Thus restaurant could be a 4-star, as the food is delicious, but the wait staff and especially the hostess' need better training. Hosts were too busy talking amongst each other than greeting restaurant patrons. They did not even give us a thank you as we left the restaurant. The only good service was from bus boy and 1 waitress who appeared to be helping out our waiter. Because of this, I would not refer to any friends or family.
