Our table wasn’t ready for our reservation. The one blonde bartender was very nice the other female bartender (had an accent) was somewhat rude & very impatient when she was dealing with our party. Our server was nice but very rushed & didn’t come back to us in a timely manner to check in on us. My dinner was inedible ($18) & she did not even seem to care when I shared that & we were ready to almost leave when she finally asked. She did not even respond with a comment & did not even make eye contact. VERY disappointed & VERY expensive. We won’t go back. Very pricey for mediocre service.

Food and service were great. We went on a Sunday evening and it was not crowded. We had not requested a quieter area but didn’t realize there was a choice between the dining room and the bar area. We were seated in the bar area and we would not do that again.

We were on a family vacation, and decided to treat the family to a nicer dinner as a treat. Excellent food, nice ambiance, and good service!

Worst service I’ve had in a long time. If you hate being a waitress so much, maybe find a new job.

Been going to Sarento’s for years as we visit Wis. Dells. Unfortunately, this time will mark the last time. The sauces tasted like it was from a can. The scallops were very fishy. The calamari was waaay over-cooked and the oil it was fried in tasted old. The Service staff was very attentive and helpful, and was the best part of the meal.

Everyone was very satisfied with the food they ordered. The lasagna could have been made with pasta that was a little bit thicker. Prices were reasonable, service was great. Will definitely be going back.

The bolognese was fabulous!! There was live music with a woman singing and a guy with a guitar and they were really good. It was nice to have the music in the background while having dinner.

The food was very very delicious, the only complaint I have is our waitress never came to check on us when we got our food and it took 25 minutes to get our bill once we were done eating

We requested to sit in a booth in the bar to take advantage of the live music which is why the higher level of noise, The dining room is always quite. Hard to find good veal at many restaurants and the veal dishes are our favorites this time of year.

A great experience. First time here for a dinner before a concert and show in the area and everything was absolutely fantastic from the table, service, drinks and meal perspective. We will definitely be back. Cheers!

We were in the area for another activity and thought we’d give it a try. To us, a restaurant is a three legged experience: the scenery, the food and the service. If any leg is short the stool falls over. Sarento’s stood tall.
We walked in and noticed right away the place is cute. Cozy lighting, dark woods and warm atmosphere. It was busy but not nuts. We were sat right away.
Morgan, and the rest of our servers, were prompt, warm and professional. We didn’t have to wait around at anytime for anything, they timed the courses well and checked on us regularly.
The food was good. It tasted pretty authentic. The presentations were simple and clean. We’d take a bath in the balsamic, and the spaghetti meat sauce.
We’ll be back again when we are in the area. We’d recommend this property to anyone who wants a nice Italian meal.

Good family restaurant with kids menu. Not a date night or quiet evening place. Pizza and sandwiches to keep costs down if you need to or have a large group.

Everything was excellent. The food was delicious, especially the Lasagna, and the Hazelnut chocolate cake for desert. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was relaxing and cozy with a fireplace. My wife and I came here for my birthday, at my request. I love this place!

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!
