Good spot for a team dinner. Very comfortable and laid back atmosphere. Love the Brussel Sprouts!!
Wonderful! Great food and fast service. Very friendly staff. We were a group of 12 people and everyone enjoyed it.
The food was delicious! The service was on point and the amount of food for the cost was great.. we enjoyed our visit as a family sitting at the large round table before see a Christmas show at the Hartford Stage. Thanks again!
One of my favorite lunch spots, although the pasta will guarantee a nap! Always a consistently good meal - their Bolognese is absolutely fabulous
Very good server, made us feel very welcomed. The Italian calamari was absolutely fantastic and the olives that are in it are to die for. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
We always appreciate a good meal at Sorella.
Great pizza and great service. The food was delicious and we didn't have to wait long for it, which was good because we only had an hour for lunch.
Had to eat in the bar area which was fine...just a little noisier than when sitting in dining area. Food was great, service excellent.
We always enjoy dining out at Sorella!
Great place with delicious Italian offerings. Wait staff is very attentive - a great place for a pre-concert or theater dinner.
We were in town for a Uconn basketball game and thought we would try Sorella. Great choice. Friendly waitstaff and efficient service. Menu options were numerous and just about anyone could find a entree to suit them. Meatballs were very good as well as the sauce. Will visit again!!
Walked out of Vivo because of lack of service and went here where we’ve never been disappointed. Tonight was no exception. Excellent service and food.
Great restaurant find before a concert in town. Highly recommend and expansive menu.
Love this restaurant when we have a concert or a game to attend. The food is very good and the service is excellent. They can get you and out very quickly. It was very loud though...of course, the place was packed!
Great service. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. Very nice atmosphere. The octopus appetizer and kale ceasar salad were outstanding. My chicken marsala was good but I felt that the sauce was too sweet for my taste. My companion enjoyed her pasta. Wines were a little on the expensive side. Overall excellent experience
Oh my the garlic bread was off the charts... had the risotto and it was fantastic, just the right consistency
Service and staff were all great
Sorella has been our favorite "go-to" for dinner before attending Hartford Stage shows, combining the convenience of walkability to the stage with reliably great food, wine, and prompt service. We have our favorites from their pasta entrees, but also enjoy trying new options; ALL have been wonderful.
(The ONLY suboptimal aspect is that the noise from the always-crowded bar area echoes throughout the room, such that it can make conversation difficult, even at our table-for-two. [Sometimes we purposefully get seated in the "back" area near the pizza oven, but we did not push for this last time, only to subsequently realize our error, as it was loud for much of the meal. C'est la vie.])
All in all, though, a good and favorite spot; we'll certainly continue going.
delicious food, friendly service
Sorella's is our go to place before Hartford Stage. Their food and service has never disappointed us. We had the shrimp scampi and the burrata and fig appetizer. Absolutely delicious.
Took my team to Sorella to dinner after an all day meeting. Sorella did an excellent job. From the bartender's great service to the apps and entrees. Party of 6 and everyone walked away with impressive things to say about their overall experience.
Everyone was super nice and The food was delish!
My pasta was ehh but everyone else in my group liked their meal. This was the first time my food was not outstanding. The waiter acted like he couldn’t be bothered with us, I can’t say he was rude, just seemed a little annoyed/put out that we asked for anything. The restaurant wasn’t even busy.
The food was bad, tasteless or too salty. Had been there a while ago it was busy and the food was good and well prepared. Don't know what happen but the place was dead and the food was bad on a Saturday night.
Excellent service and food.
Went for a business dinner, need to have some quiet conversation, and this place was perfect for that, even with a bar near the table
Great menu. Perfect preconcert dinner.
The wait staff was so nice, we sat at the bar. We had the eggplant fries. They were great but the salad was the best, with grilled peaches and pea tendrils. The food was very fresh! We had the Jersey Boy Pizza and it too was very good. We were early so the atmosphere was really calm, friendly and the service was exceptional!
Service good. Vodka martini tasty but short. Wine selection adequate but very expensive. Did the 25 dollars price fixe which was a good value—included dessert. Paid extra $8.00 for very good garlic bread. But for two of us it $160.00 with a little bit more than a 20% tip.
Arrived at 8:15. Very low noise. Excellent pizza. Excellent service.
Good choice if you're going to Infinity Hall. Heck, good choice if you're going to Hartford! Bring your own wine for just $15 corkage.
Nice for casual dining.
Great salads & pasta dishes. The salmon entree was excellent. Nice house wines with good choice of the amount you might like. Great pre/post theater spot!
Good spot for a quick lunch. Needed to get some work done with a colleague so we spread out and ordered some pizzas. Staff recognized this and was unobtrusive as we got through our work and our meals!
Amazing food, cocktails, service and environment. Love Sorella’s!
Chose this restaurant due to close proximity to our hotel. We ate a very early dinner due to concert tickets. The food was very good. It is not a huge menu, but there was something for everyone who enjoys Italian food and pizza. I especially enjoyed the refreshing "4 color" salad. As someone watching carbs I also appreciated the ability to enjoy my meatballs with a side of spaghetti squash. Portions were generous and the service was very friendly and efficient. Overall we were very satisfied and would return if we find ourselves in Hartford again.
Very friendly staff. They accommodated our tardiness due to local traffic back ups. The bread and butter is delicious. Pizzas are fantastic as well. Great service. Will return next time I'm in town for dinner.
Pizzas were divine! The mushroom pasta dish wasn’t too exciting but enjoyable.
I made reservations for a high-top table in the bar area and planned for a quick bite to eat before the Yard Goats game. When we arrived, we were told there was a reservation mistake and there were no high-top tables available in the bar (there was a large group that reserved along the windows). The hostess was very apologetic, brought us to another table and allowed us to order the Happy Hour specials (which are only available from the bar area). Our waitress was fantastic (thank you Giuliana) -- she was attentive & personable. The food was served hot and fast. The pizza (we ordered 1 red with meatballs + 1 white with mushrooms) was the table favorite. A close second was the crispy brussel sprouts. We also ordered the bartenders choice drink -- a watermelon Sangria. The drink was a little weak and was only served with a small orange wedge... the only thing that was not perfect. But the draft beer (we ordered Two Roads + Sam Summer) was cold and well carbonated. Overall, a very positive experience and I will definitely return.
