As we welcome our new normal, we have changed some things around. We are offering takeout with curbside pickup and online delivery through our online partners. Our patio is open weather dependent and reservations are strongly recommended. We have also stepped outside our Italian roots and have expanded our menu to include some of our favorites from our other restaurants. We hope to provide you a safe enjoyable experience and have trained our staff extensively in proper sanitation and interaction. We hope you enjoy your experience and we provided you some comfort in these surreal times.

Best brussel sprouts anywhere! Also loved the grain bowel salad; warm and delicious if you like cooked kale, which we do. Lucky to have warm evening and able to sit outside. Bit noisy with traffic noises and people playing in the street, but overall quite delightful.

Sorella’s is a great place to have a good meal; whether a piece of salmon, a pasta dish or a brick oven pizza. Give it a try!

This was not our first visit to Sorella's nor will it be our last. We generally will dine at Sorella's prior to a Hartford Stage play. Even with COVID delaying the theater scene in Hartford, we still would come knowing we will have a great meal and be treated like family. We love the food, service and ambience of this restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

While the food was on the expensive size, the quality of it was so fantastic that I didn't mind! Wait staff was quick to respond upon arrival, though there was a time at the end of the visit where we were wondering what happened to him. Still, overall this was excellent and I'll definitely go again when I'm in the area. I ordered a lobster roll and fries, but it was the best lobster roll I've ever had! It was drizzled with a delightful lemon butter reduction that was so good my friends were teasing me for moaning while eating it. LOL We ate outside and witnessed a wedding photo shoot & corn hole game, which was amusing to say the least. Bathroom was immaculate & inside had great ambiance. It's also less than 10 min from the XFinity center in Hartford, so its conveniently located. Thanks Sorella!

My friends and I frequent Sorella for dinner and drinks almost every other week. The staff is so pleasant and the food is amazing! If you haven’t had one of their brick oven pizzas, you’re missing out! Highly recommend you check Sorella out!

Sorella is a gem in downtown Hartford. Their thin-crust pizza is excellent, and in general their food is a 10.
Last night our party of 3 had two pizzas, both super, and I ordered orechiette, which comes with sausage and broccoli rabe in a spicy sauce, and it was delicious.
My wife is Sicilian and an excellent cook, and she agrees that Sorella is the real deal.
The prices are moderate, the bar makes great drinks, and the service is always spot on.
In our Covid times, I'm so thankful Sorella lives on!

The service was excellent and both my companion and I ordered the antipasto salad. The salad was great although a bit unusual. It combined chick peas, radicchio, salumi and other vegetables topped with a wonderful balsamic dressing. I will surely order it again.

Great to be able to get back to some semblance of normal and couldn't wait to get back to Sorella. All the food was great but the octopus and anchovy sauced burrata were incredible.

Everything about this restaurant is amazing! The staff was very attentive, informative, and looked like they enjoyed their job. Everyone who worked there had smiles on their faces. Portions are generous, drinks were delicious, and the food was outstanding. I cannot even describe how good the food is. We got the Buffalo chicken dip, a Cesar salad, and fried calamari for appetizers. For our meals we got jersey boy pizzas and chicken parmigiana. Even though we were stuffed, we couldn’t resist trying dessert. We all ordered the chocolate chip cookies. Once again we were not disappointed! One of our friends that came is very picky and he loved all the food. Everything tastes like it’s made from scratch! This weekend was very hot so we ate indoors but they have a nice patio setup for those who like to eat outdoors. If you haven’t tried this restaurant yet make sure you do! We will definitely be back in the future.

Very nice place with excellent food. One entree came slightly wrong and the waiter tried to talk my guest into keeping it instead of offering to fix it promptly for her. Slightly embarrassing. Food was delicious and prompt. Drinks slightly overpriced but I guess considering covid, everyone has to make it somehow. Pay to park was a bit of a drag but I would go back.

This is the second time we tried Sorella and tried to give some business to Hartford rather then West Hartford which is consistently booked, but for good reason. I give 5 stars to the service, friendly, helpful and on time throughout. The food was all over the place....the Super Greens Salad was basically a pile of spinach with grape tomatoes and drenched in dressing. The Chilean Sea Bass was good and presented nicely. The Ravioli was messy but delivered on taste. The reason for the 2 stars.....the biggest disappointment of the night was dessert. The Tiramisu was literally inedible. It was cold, wet and mushy. I don't know why they would serve something this bad. It should be served at room temp and be light and fluffy with a creamy base and light espresso flavor. Sorry, but we took it home and threw it out. I made one homemade for my family to make up for the end to a somewhat nice dinner. I recommend that they get a pastry chef or a reputable bakery for their dessert menu moving forward.
