    Four of us had tickets to see a 7:30 show at Hartford Stage and made 5:45 reservations at nearby Sorella, which was about a 2 minute walk away. As we were escorted to a table we walked past a huge party that was celebrating a wedding rehearsal dinner. Within a few minutes of our arrival, it seemed as though the entire restaurant was full, so I was super happy we made reservations. Our server John C. was personable, funny and very efficient. The four of us started off by sharing two fantastic appetizers. Dish Bread was a big $10 loaf of toasted bread slathered with Boursin cheese, mozzarella, roasted garlic and served with a ramekin of marinara. Our second appetizer was Octopus Umido with stewed octopus, olives, capers, clams, fingerling potato, white wine, and chopped tomato for $18. This was awesome with plenty of super tender octopus chunks. Our four entrees were Chicken Marsala ($25), Black Linguini with Shrimp ($28), Caesar Salad with Meatball ($16), and Rigatoni Saltimbocca with ground veal ($24). Everyone loved their food. I had the Black Linguini with shrimp and there were at least 8 shrimp and plenty of pasta in the dish -a very good value in a downtown restaurant for $28. We all went for a dessert, and shared a dish of ice cream. A tiramisu (not a first choice but their chocolate torte was unavailable) and a fantastic dish named Affogato - a twin headed dish wit a small cup of espresso and a scoop of J. Foster Toasted Almond Gelato. When I combined the two, the taste as fantastic. Our lovely dinner for four ran $159.95 after tax and before tip. It was a terrific experience.

    Wow!! Once again completely exceeded our expectations - you must try the pasta dishes - especially the rose!!! Our salads were all excellent if you love radicchio as much as I do with lemon vinaigrette you must get that salad!!! Can I just say a HUGE SHOUT OUT to my girl Nicole!!!! She is by far one of the best servers we have had recently. She’s personable, friendly, welcoming, and makes it very special for your table. We now just request her section - request it you won’t be disappointed and definitely get the chocolate torte with J Foster ice cream!

    Absolutely outstanding!! Our server Nicki (Nicole) was AMAZING!! We went with all her recommendations and they sure did not disappoint including the olive oil cake! I hesitated to order my beloved Cosmo with Titos because recently, without naming these “high” end places, I have been very unimpressed but this one was PERFECT and COLD and came in Martini glass (sorry but a pet peeve of mine). We went after an event at at XL center but this was so good we already aid we’ll make a separate trip back to Hartford just to go and will request Nicki for our server! Outstanding job!! Thank you Thank you Thank you for an outstanding experience!

    Great location for pre theater dinner (or post-matinee, we also found out). Waitstaff was quite busy-restaurant nearly full. Food was ok-arugula salad had lots of parm but almost no dressing, if any, so quite dry. Pasta and pizza were ok; very reasonably priced. We shared dessert and the olive oil cake with lemon sauce was very good. Wine by the glass was quite warm-believe the glasses had just come out of the dishwasher. I wouldn’t make a special trip for this restaurant but will probably give it another chance when I’m in town.

    Restaurant out of a lot of items on starter menu. Starter plates just so-so. “Hand pulled” mozzarella seemed supermarket quality Restaurant was crowded so service was slow. As we had show tickets, we decided to skip the main entree and go right to dessert. Ordered tiramisu which was somewhat flavorless and watery. I have no doubt their pizzas and pastas would be hearty and yummy. We were just underwhelmed with what we ordered. They are very nice there though.

    We arrived a bit early and were seated right away. Our server came to our table shortly after for our drink order. The small plate wood roasted beets and ravioli “cacio e pepe were delicious and the grain bowl salad was tasty as well. Their signature drink was so good I ordered a second, which I rarely do. The cannoli we had for dessert did not disappoint, nor did the decaf, even though it was overshadowed by the other offerings. Service was consistently excellent, with staff regularly removing empty dishes so that the smallish two person table never seemed crowded. We will probably not wait until we attend another Hartford Stage play to revisit Sorella

    Was looking for an upscale dinner for 5 people after a local theater event. Checked the internet and this place received a high 4.7 rating. Not true! Food was mediocre, and service poor. Noise level was very high. Not worth the $350. Bill. One step up from a chain style eating establishment.

    Although food was good, the tone from owner in more than 1 interaction was not adequate when dealing with customers. I will pass in the future, as having a nice experience is as important as the food. I hope he learns when he's crossing the "rude" barrier

    We had a great pre-show dinner at Sorella's. We found the pricing to be reasonable and the wine choices good. Service was very good. The only issue was that we wanted to substitue a vegetable for potatoes due to a medical diet. For seemed to be a huge request. We found it strange that the meal was not going to be served with a vegetable in general, but surprised when our request seemed to be a difficult one for the kitchen. HOWEVER, they did substitue some brocolli rabe for the potatoes and the meal was delicious. The portions were also good!

    A great option for downtown Hartford. Food was very good. Service was a little too quick for Saturday night out but in this case it left us plenty of time to make a show at the Bushnell. I will definitely return.

    Made a reservation for last nights date night and will totally be coming back again. Not only do they have 'adult' non alcoholic drinks but gluten free pizza dough AND vegan cheese! I LOVED the pizza. It was made perfectly with a crunch yet soft crust which is hard to achieve with usually gf pizza doughs. The vegan cheese was just the right amount bc you can over do with vegan cheese as it doesn't melt like normal cheese does. I didn't have any stems on my cherry peppers so that's a huge plus bc no one wants to pick stems of a hot pizza. The pepperonis were crunchy and not burned, just the way I like it! I got the Il Diavolo pizza in case you were wondering. My husband got a bunch of apps as his meal and loved everything. The brussel sprouts were crunchy through and through. Olives with no pits and the figs were delish! Our waiter was nice and willing to chat when we asked him who the man in the picture was with a glass of brandy next to it. (It's one of the old owners which we kind of figured.) The maître d' was smiley and complimented me on my glasses and we chatted about where I got them for a few minutes. I like it when workers aren't afraid to talk to you for a minute or two. Makes the experience more memorable! X posted to Yelp.

    Overall the experience was fine and the food was good. We left on a sour note because we had gone for my aunts 80th birthday and I had pulled the waiter aside to put candles in whatever desserts the table ordered. Well Out came the desserts with no candle and being that it was such a special birthday It just soured the whole experience.
