Reopened as Enza Cucina Siciliana

Mamma Enza has closed Sorrentino, remodeled, and reopened as Enza Cucina Siciiana.

So bad it was comical.

Ok. I'm a person who eats out a lot, and therefore have seen a lot. But I think I'm a tolerant sort, and allow for some variation in service, etc. at a restaurant. I have also never written a bad review (or much of any review, for that matter) before.
However, based on my dining experience at Sorrentino tonight, I would advise you to avoid this place like it was a festering incubus of viral plague. Not kidding.
Setting: Friday night, 9 PM. Maybe 5 tables with diners. Jazz qua
...view morertet playing way too loud to chat. Seated immediately; menus take 10 minutes to arrive. Waitress has alcohol on breath as she leans in close to (slurringly) ask us for our order. This is a joke, right?
Simple light meal order - 3 lasagnes, 1 plate of spaghetti. No big deal, right?
Bread basket comes. 4 half slices of what appears to be Wonder Bread for 4 people. We have a chance to polish this off fairly quickly, since we wait 30 minutes for any food to arrive. During this time, our waitress is wandering around the room, conversing loudly, sitting on guests' laps, etc. The older woman behind the hot line counter has to ring a bell (also a rather amateurish touch) 2-3 times to attract her attention to pick up orders.
Our order finally arrives. Small square of lasagne. Cool throughout; frankly cold in the middle. 15 bucks. Spaghetti sauce tastes like it comes from a can. Menu said sauce had basil as ingredient - no green in there, mate. 14 bucks.
We ask for some more Wonder bread as the plates arrive; basket taken, never comes back.
Frustrating and disappointing. Like that bread basket, we won't be coming back.

No more pizza, but live music instead

Three times a week live music is on tap, starting end of October. Meantime, the lasagna is killed, all the pastas are homemade, homemade desserts, too. All from the hands of Enza Sorrentino, a real Sicilian mamma, and served by her daughter, Sofana. Don't listen to the know-nothings whose standard is Olive Garden, or to the trendy spots which give an Italian name to something they've invented; this is the real deal, the most authentic Italian restaurant in Seattle.

Don't bother with happy hour

I can't comment on the regular meals, because I went to happy hour 5/6/2009 and won't be back.

Portions were skimpy and the food tasteless. I had a Caprese salad with little rounds of mozzarella that looked and tasted like they came from either Trader Joe's or Safeway next door. It was four bites at the most for $5. Same with the caponata - two little half-dollar sized rounds of crostini when even the skimpy, tasteless portion of caponata called for at least four.

The place so
...view moreunded like a day care center with some of the owners' friends taking up one big table with screaming babies. I've never been compelled to write a negative review about a restaurant before, especially an Italian restaurant where some of the customers were actually speaking Italian, but this place is a disaster.

The waiter didn't bother to ask me how ""everything was.'' Otherwise, I would have told him.

Far away from a decent italian restaurant

We had dinner there this week with other 30 Italians guys and the restaurant was a big disappointment. We had a good appetizer (prosciutto), two different dishes of pasta (one was with tomato sauce, mushroom, peas, the other dish was seafood pasta), and a dessert. The pasta was overcooked and no taste and the tiramisu was too sweet. It doesn?t worth the price; in general most of the dishes are overpriced for what you get. I really hope to find a decent Italian restaurant in Seattle on...view moree day...view less

Get your meal from Safeway, pay for it at Sorrentino!

Last week, in the checkout stand at Safeway, I noticed a woman in an apron buying a bunch of baguettes. Didn't think much of it, until I heard the clerk say, ""Thank you, Mrs. Sorrentino."" REALLY? Yes. It was obviously the owner running next door to buy some more baguettes. (Probably 3 days old, knowing Safeway.) Maybe she doesn't always buy them there, but even so, you have to question the quality of the food considering their prices now!\r
I have dined there once before.

A perfect evening in Sicily!

This was an exceptional dining experience--not a single criticism of any aspect of the evening. I began with their homemade lemoncello martini--floating on a base of pomegranate nectar--fabulous! My standard mandarin cosmo pales in comparison. The waiter was knowledgeable and preceptive, also recommending a wonderful Orvieto white to accompany my prawns with wine sauced pasta. My husband's standard: lasagne, was the best he'd ever eaten--anywhere in the states, throughout Italy and ...view moreeven in MY kitchen! Our friends raved about the veal and the ravioli, and we all enjoyed the risotto enormously. Each pasta was perfectly al dente. the sauces were complex and flavorful, and the service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. What more could we ask from a perfect evening? Like visiting Sicily--Mamma Sorrentino hovers nearby to make certain all is well, then sends us off with warmth and charm and the inspiration to get the Rosetta Stone Italian language course. We'll bring all our friends and family here, to relive our travel memories with wonderfully authentic cooking from southern Italy.view less

Some good and great food and mostly bad service...

This is a place that has had some exceptional dishes and also sub-OK dishes...I have ordered their 3-meat sauce meal at least 6 times, and 4 of those times, it was just delicious.\r
Their service on the other hand has been good only 2 of those times. Both times, there was a younger guy with dark hair in there who was super personable. When he has not been in, and I was served by someone else (from the family, I think), I was distracted by family squabbling...sometimes spilling o

In any case, if their pasta dishes could only remain consistent, then they would easily be a 5-star rating in my book.

No good

I am from Perugia and I have been living in the states for 2 years, in Seattle for 2 for school. This is not real Italy food. We do not use can sauce. It is disgustare! And the way the restaurant look is brutto (ugly) - I do not agree with everyone else. It is too cramped with fake art. I would not recommend this food to my cane.

Great all arround resturant

As a resident of Naples Italy for three years while extensively traveling throughout, Sorrentino's brings together some of the best food that Italy's regions have to offer. I have had casual dinners with friends, romantic evenings with my wife and business engagements with collogues and have only great things to say about it. The service is like being in Italy, family casual though passionate that you are receiving what you want. Try parking on Boston or some of the side streets, Qu...view moreeen Anne parking can always be an adventure!view less
