We attended for Valentine's Day.
It was crowded and the noise level was commensurately up, but not raucous. The food was interesting and the table wines were good. It may have been a bit overbooked fort he occasion, as the tables were tightly packed and the patrons at the nearby table were visibly irritated.
I would like to visit again.
No one came to us after being seated for at least 10 minutes. The place wasn’t more than 75% full. After taking our drink order, there was another long gap before taking our food order. The food took really long too and I think they forgot to put in our appetizers. Once the food came no one asked if we wanted parmesan cheese on the pasta like normal Italian restaurants do and no one asked if everything was ok. In the past I liked this place and was excited to show it to my girlfriend. I will not be returning.
Service was slow and staff were not attentive. Frustrating.
Perfect home food made ever. The taste of the love that been cooked with the food was amazing..highly recommanded. If you are visiting or staying here, you have to visit otherwise you missed the Italian spirit in America..
After enjoying a birthday dinner earlier in the month, our group of friends returned for another birthday celebration 2 weeks later and enjoyed everything once again. Congenial, attentive staff serving a wide variety of well priced Italian favorites plus creative specials in a cozy and comfortable setting. Yes, we'll be back soon!
Nice for an evening with friends.
One of my favorite restaurants in Bethesda! Great service! Great food!! What's not to like!
Friendly staff! Very slow service but delicious meal. I had homemade pasta and enjoyed every piece of my dish..it is kind of neighborhood Italian restaurant....
I would go back again. I prefer having white table clothes at a place like this vs wood table top....Ambiance would improve. Food was very good. Service was very good as well.
excellent family run Italian, a rare breed these days , particularly in Bethesda
Our family had a wonderful dinner last night enjoying excellent food, a warm atmosphere and excellent service.
We love this neighborhood place, and the food is always good. We are also regularly greeted by the owner Melina, who is always sweet, welcoming and ensuring we have everything to our liking. A great little quiet place to get a long holiday weekend started!
Excellent fresh homemade pasta is delicious! Great service.
Trattoria Sorrento is one of our favorite restaurants. The service is excellent especially if you have Miranda. They will accommodate you if it is possible, I have been their a number of times and they have done everything possible to make sure we are enjoying ourselves. The food is very good, as are the drinks. It is great for a date, special occasion, group event, or business dinner. It is my favorite family owned restaurant. I recommend them to all my friends.
The food was excellent and the service was very good.
Fantastic authentic Italian cuisine. Make a reservation. Can be quite busy at times.
As always, our meal was delicious. Melinda did a great job taking care of our group.
The service was extremely slow and server would serve others coming after us.
There was bug flying around on the dinner table.
No one would ask if we needed water refill.
They automatically charged 20% gratuity without asking us and even with the poor service.
Loved this place! I can't believe I have not discovered it before. It's hard to find a quiet restaurant where you're not on top of your fellow diners - and you can have a conversation without yelling... We loved the ambiance here and the food was delicious - and not overpriced. We will definitely be back.
