Sorellina is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston, despite the high prices. Service is generally excellent even though some servers are better than others. While all servers are professional, only a few are professional & friendly, with an added sense of humor, which of course adds to the overall dining experience.
The girls at the host stand could be friendlier, but 9 out of 10 times I go there, they are very nice.
We were at Sorellina for my older daughter's birthday. First extremely pleased that we chose Sorellina for this important occasion. We had to briefly speak with the wine Director to chose our wine bottle (Brunelo de Montalcino) and were impressed with his knowledge. Second the appetizers (Foie Gras and Polpo) were simply divine and our Secondi and pasta dishes were bursting with original flavors. The desserts were outstanding. At the conclusion of our meal we were feeling perfectly satisfied-a rare feeling!!
5 stars every time have been here. Food is always perfect with layers of flavor. Service is flawless. Attentive without being intrusive. Pricey but worth every penny.
One of the best restaurants I have eaten at in Boston and I have eaten at more than 500... the food was truly amazing!
Amazing birthday dinner and experience overall! A nice treat!
Anniversary dinner for about the 5th time.
We like to try different places but this is 1 we keep returning to.
We had the early reservation, so we could meet our Daughter and her fiancé later and really enjoyed the quiet start to the ramp up at the restaurant.
Sorellina is one of the very few places that gets both the big, and small, details right all the time. They are layered to back each other up but, it’s almost never needed and, if it is, the guest never knows.
Time-after-time, they continue to perform this finely choreographed dance with an ease and effortlessness that makes you wonder why so few other restaurants can do it.
Never a disappointing meal, especially if you have the Lobster gnocki, and any Veal dish.
Of all the places we love to dine in Boston, Sorellina remains, far and away, #1.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The menu is creative and offers a range of choices. Everything we ordered from the artichoke appetizer to the mains of lamb chops and veal chop to the gelato dessert was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented with good portion size. And the wine list is absolutely astounding. But the star of the evening was our server. She was thoroughly conversant with the menu, made excellent suggestions and was able to handle a multi food allergy with aplomb. In addition, the rest of the service staff were competent and unobtrusive in attending to all of our needs.
Food was great, wine list was good, prices were high in my view.
We were thrilled with this restaurant from the moment we walked in. It has a quiet, sophisticated vibe— elegant. Our server, ‘Tarso’ set the tone. We chose from a gourmet menu which he delighted in explaining in detail. I began with raw oysters which were the best I’ve ever had! The whole experience was terrific!
This may be the best restaurant I have ever been to! Absolutely perfect starter of mozzarella and tomato but served in a unique presentation vs. traditional Caprese. I wanted to try a different Italian wine and the Sommelier was incredible, helped me choose the perfect wine. The meat balls and pasta presentation was also refreshingly different and exquisite.
My husband and I have been to Sorellina many times and we have never disappointed. The food and the staff are excellent and the ambiance makes for a calming and relaxing experience. The prices reflect the quality and location and we would highly recommend going to Sorellina for a special occasion!
I enjoyed my third annual visit to Sorellina a few days ago, and found it just as stellar as in previous years. The food, the service, the wine -- they just get it all right. On this occasion I had gnocchi with lobster, followed by veal saltimbocca, which was like no previous interpretation of that dish I had ever tasted. This one was made with medallions of perfectly cooked veal tenderloin -- absolutely superb. Our server was an "old pro": masterful, never intrusive but very helpful. I did think there were many fewer red wine choices that were properly aged, but we were hardly settling with the delicious 2004 Brunello. I'm not a Boston resident, but this is by far my favorite place for dinner in the city, and it can hold its own with many of New York's most illustrious Italian restaurants. I'm delighted to see that it doesn't appear to have lost a step.
Dress up and bring your best credit card because the food and service are worth it. Don't miss the homemade pasta dishes and either of the veal selections is top knotch. Great wine selection but they are pricey. Tarso was our server and should ask for his station. Friendly and great advice.
Great experience except for the confirmation phone call which was unnecessary and disruptive.
Amazing overall and consistently good- steak meatballs foie Gras and great service. Our go to for celebrations!
Sorellina provides everything one needs for a fine dining experience. All six members of our party left the restaurant pleased with their meals, from appetizers to desserts. Our server, Nancy T., was excellent - both friendly and professional, well informed about the menu but unobtrusive. Cocktails are probably too expensive - one can mix all the ingredients at home for far less - but the food preparation was exceptional, conjuring as it did flavors and textures only a first-class chef (and staff) can imagine.
Our server seemed to forget about us on two occasions and the fish I ordered was over cooked on the top (with a piping hot plate, so it was sitting for awhile before being delivered). My husband loved the veal though and said it was cooked perfectly. Impressive wine list, and the cocktails were perfect. Some of Sorrelina’s sister restaurants are our favorites in Boston, but this was a miss for our appetizers and my entree.
Absolutely fabulous!! One of the best dinners we've had! The lobster gnocchi, scallops with sweet corn and chanterelles, the lamb chops, the blueberry crostata - all very highly recommended. Will definitely return for another special occasion.
Excellently presented food with good explanations from the wait team. Interesting wine list (by the glass) with options for every taste.
Perfect!!! Everything was fabulous!
This is a wonderful “little sister” to Mistral. My only objection would be to the non-classic preparation of veal saltimbocca, using tender round chunks of veal instead of thin pounded pancakes; classics are generally classic for good reason and shouldn’t be messed with. All other dishes our party of three had were outstanding ( artichoke appetizer, shrimp cocktail, haddock, blueberry sorbet, Meyer lemon custard with nuts and basil meringue ).
Delicious food, excellent service from Brian.
Mark was scrumtrelescrnt!
Amazing restaurant for fine dining! Server paid attention to details, made excellent recommendations and provided high quality service. Well worth the price.
Everything was on point at this beautiful restaurant. From the service to the creatively crafted entrees to the dessert. This is a top notch place and you can expect to be treated fabulous at this establishment.
Food was fabulous and staff very attentive to my corn allergy. Loved it!
Wonderful food and service at this fantastic restaurant.
Special occasion, Sorellina is the place. The wait staff is very helpful and knowledgeable, but not pushy. The restaurant is modern, and the tables are nicely spaced. The menu reflects creative and interesting selections, but the prices are not cheap. This dinner will set you back quite a bit, but it will be a lovely evening of dining. The wine list is expensive, but there are many items that are affordable if sharing a bottle.
Excellent in all respects!
Very attentive staff, excellent food, great ambiance - very nice restaurant for special occasion
Great restaurant, we celebrated mom's birthday there. Fantastic service and delicious food. The noise level was just perfect, you could hear rumbling in the background, but still quiet enough that we could hear each other. We enjoyed it very much.
This is one of the top 3 restaurants in Boston - maybe the best. Amazing place!
What a truly wonderful dining experience! We were in a recent business trip and this restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. The wine list is amazing. Nancy navigated us through the menu and her suggestions were perfect. The timing of the courses was perfect too. Each meal was prepared exceptionally well. I just can’t say enough, it was a perfect dining experience (and we travel a lot and are lucky enough to eat in some amazing restaurants).
Excellent as akways
Very good although prices are high. $17 for a bourbon is ridiculous considering a 750 ML bottle is only about 45
Excellent in every way
Amazing food, excellent service, wonderful ambiance and such a special place for our celebration!
Absolutely wonderful food and service. And, it is very quiet. I would really recommend Sorellina!
