This place is great. The food is very fresh and delicious. Really, you will not be disappointed.

Lovely, traditional southern Italian restaurant. Nice service until it got bisy, then had to flag for additional wine. Reasonably priced, delicious antipasto platter. Surprised to be charged for two desserts (that we hadn't ordered) to commemorate our two milestone birthdays, but we paid without calling attention to it since we were hosting family.

We had a pleasant meal. My husband enjoyed his chicken parmigiana. My penne vodka was good but not great.

Tratorria Sarento was a great dining experience. The service was prompt and our server was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The food was excellent, I had an unusual Pesto dish with goat cheese that was delicious. It was a bit on the pricey side, but worth it.

Food was great. Service was outstanding. Definitely a contender for best Italian food in the MD suburbs. Looking forward to my next meal.

We visited on Mother's Day, and expected it to be busy, but our experience was borderline ridiculous. The food was just ok, and the service was pretty bad. I understand that they were busy, but they crammed us in a corner, and had chairs just stuck on to the ends of all of the tables. My mother and mother-in-law kept being bumped by the patrons at the table in front of us. My entire backside rubbed up against the person sitting at the table next us when we were seated. There was maybe one foot of space between our table and the surrounding parties. Our food was delivered on time, but our server visited our table maybe four times, these four times include the times she came to take our order. We received our to-go boxes from a different server, and waited a full twenty minutes for our check, which we only got after requesting it from the host. When we finally received it, it was incorrect. The server had charged us for twice as many drinks as we had actually ordered. This mistake was corrected fairly quickly, but the experience had obviously already been ruined. Maybe the food and service is better on regular days, but I'm not willing to find out.

Sorrento continues to be one of our favorites. The food is always delicious, very authentic Italian, and we always feel like we are at home in their kitchen.

We've recently been twice and won't go back again. On both occasions the service has been slow but the last visit the waiter was utterly incompetent.

A good range of food on the menu. There were 4 of us, and we ate different items, including the house calamari, beet salad, branzino, veal parmigiana. It was all good.

The branzino was a "special of the day" and was priced accordingly -- which we didn't know until we got the bill!

Went for the first time Thursday April 6 because it was Dining Out For Life evening, benefitting Food and Friends, and they were participating. It was very good and I 'd be happy to come back as a "regular" customer.

Food and service was wonderful. We had a large group and special requests, including gluten free, were accommodated. Everyone in our party had a great time.
