Trattoria Sorrento Ratings and Reviews
Based on prior reviews, I was expected a quiet restaurant with some good classic Italian food. we were instead met with a very loud and overly crowded restaurant. Our table edge was literally stabbing into the back of the gentleman next to us and every time he moved our entire table shook. Service was lacking to say the least. It took 10 minutes for us to be seated despite having a reservation as no one seemed to know it was their job to seat us. When our dinner was (finally) served, our fish sat there for 7-8 minutes with us begging someone to actually do the deboning they offered. We asked for Parmesan cheese which they promptly provided AFTER the meal was complete and the check was delivered. Overall the service was terrible and the food was pretty mediocre. I will not be going back.
My business partner and I ate at Trattoria Sorrento on a recommendation from a local food source. Clearly she was correct. The hostess was gracious and especially knowledgeable. The specials were varied and made it hard to choose. Our entree selections and wine choices did not disappoint. Rather, they made for a memorable experience. We will be back.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Most of the items on the menu were between $25 - 32. The waiter told us the specials and we asked the price. He said "about the same". The check showed $ 39 for a veal special. For a restaurant with "no table cloths" and outdated decor, I do not think it is good value.
Reliably good. We have become semi-regulars. Sorrento offers a nice menu with the expected range of Italian offerings plus several specials. Service is friendly and usually attentive. The pasta dishes are well-executed and tasty. My wife is a fan of the veal dishes. The minestrone and pasta fagioli are ample and delicious. There is a parking lot next door.
I always enjoy dining at Trattoria Sorrento. It is truly a family-owned restaurant where the staff will remember you and make you feel exceedingly welcomed. I think the food is very good, well priced and the atmosphere feels most comfortable. The noise level is not terrible so it is easy to have a relaxing dinner here without feeling that you're competing for decibel levels.
