Best Beef Tartare in the City – Every time I go to Sorellina, I forget how truly amazing the food is. Each course tastes better and better. Last evening I strayed away from my typical black truffle fettucini and tried the beet ravioli. The veal chop was amazing too. I just wish the crowd was a bit younger and not the out of town suit crowd.
Sorellina never disappoints, great for special occasions or pasta at the bar. I hidden gem in my opinion.
Taste of Home – Despite is dubious location right next to the Mass Pike entrance, the interior of Sorellina transports you out of the hustle and bustle, and into a luxuriously complacent dining experience.
The interior boasted very high ceilings, with equally impressive bay windows. One wall holds luscious bottles of vino as high as you can see, another with modern art decor that promotes a comforting ambiance.
Despite its sophistication and refinement, the cuisine reminds me of rustic Italian comfort food that my mother and grandmother would recreate from the northern regions of Italy.
The service is impeccable, leaving nothing to quander over, or interrupt your dining experience.
Sorellina is definitely a for-certain-occasions establishment, however, due to their admittedly steep pricing.
All in all, a cute, quaint evening is to be had at the top of Huntington Avenue.
Great Ambience and best service – I have been here more than once and I was treated like a king! hosts in this restuarant really understand the hospitality industry and how to treat customers nicely. service is incredible even when you are sitting next to the table shared by David Ortiz and his wife. Food is excellent and ambience is very unique and inspiring!
High-concept Italian fare has a home in one of the Back Bay's highest-profile residential buildings. – In Short
Reflecting the stylish atmosphere and menu of sister restaurant Mistral, Sorellina provides scene-chasing gourmands and moneyed residents of its upstairs condos with a trendy dining destination. Diners enjoy modern interpretations of Italian~Mediterranean fare; typical items include kobe beef meatballs, arancini made with fresh jonah crab, and a Niman Ranch pork chop with dried fruit mustard. The inviting bar area serves as an ideal spot for sampling from the extensive wine list.
Awesome date place – Loved the service and the decor. Had a terrific meal- the sirloin and asparagus. It would be great for a business meeting too since its pretty pricey.
rude management – Went for a nice dinner for New Years Eve, apparently they don't accept passports as sufficient identification for proof of age. Manager was very rude about the whole situation, we didn't even stay to finish dinner.
Waste of good money – I had been to this restauant a few months before and it was wonderful, I recently went and it went down hill, the food was tasteless and overcooked. Also being the holidays they didn't have any decorations up. They didn't want to offend anyone. I can thinks of many other places I would rather go than give this place a second chance.
Don't Bother... – I will say at least one good thing...the service was pleasant...and beyond that Sorellina is an utter waste of time. The food was boring, tasteless and totally unimaginative. I had the cod which tasted like cardboard and my friend had the steak - and I'm sorry...but a $40+ steak should not have ANY fat in it. Horrible. Okay one other good thing - the truffle fries were great....but come on...french fries are the best thing on your menu?!? You can do better than that! The restaurant was also freezing and the seating - at least the cushioned bench we were on was terribly uncomfortable - no back support! In the last two weeks we have gone to Pops, Franklin Cafe, and Petit Robert - all of which were the thousand times better than Sorellina.
Great atmosphere and great food – This place is the new "it" place in Boston and I can see why. The space is really swanky and definitely a place to make a good first impression. The food was great though the portions WAY too big (truffles fries are like 2 large McD's frieds). The waiter was extremely nice and did a great job. Don't really have anything bad to say at all.
Favorite meal in Boston so far – Went to dinner here with my husband for my birthday. Absolutely loved the food. Definitely definitely get the truffle fries. I had a fish stew of some sort (can't remember the name exactly, but it was sort of like a bouillabaise) and it was excellent. My husband had a steak, which was prepared perfectly. Excellent and truly outstanding service. Trendy scene. Somewhat pricey, so definitely save it for a special occasion!
