Sorrentos USED to be my favorite place to dine. With that said, I will explain why. In the positive, they've changed locations and the atmosphere is absolutely lovely. Now the negative: the food wasn't up to par. My children had the $6.95 small pizza and the bottom was black. Must've sat in the grill/warmer too long perhaps? My husband had the meatball fold over & he said it was too "bready" & the meatballs tasted store bought, although our waiter assured him they're made fresh in the back. I had the house $4 house salad which was too plain for the price. Iceberg lettuce, romaine, 1slice of tomato, 2 slices cucumber and bottled dressing..blah (I make a better salad at home). I also had the $8.95 cheese/meat stuffed shells. People- it was 3 small shells on a plate (not jumbo) 2 only with cheese and 1 with meat..smothered in excess of marinara. Awful! Yet somehow we managed to spend $37 total on this meal? My husband was mad! For that price we could've gone up the street to The Cheesecake Factory and had a delighful family meal! We most likely will not be going back. My husband was so dissapointed in this meal- he talked about it for 2 days...
Sorrento's food almost doesn't make sense to the low price. It's excellent--better than a number of places that cost a lot more.
The pasta dishes fall largely within the range of the basics you'd expect at an Italian place of this style. And they are executed with excellence.
I'd say it's worth driving an extra exit or two to eat at a quality local restaurant like this. I've only been a few times, but this is quickly becoming a family destination for us.
