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!

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!

Just get the fries, meatballs and chocolate dessert! We had a wonderful meal, albeit pricey, but these choices were delicious!

A must-try

I went to Sorellina for dinner last night and would highly recommend this restaurant. Our waitstaff was excellent; very professional, punctual, and pleasant. All of the people at our table were pleased with their choices. I had the halibot as my main course and found it perfectly seasoned and presented. The buffalo carpaccio and the arancini (Maine crab) were both quite delicious. For dessert, the warm chocolate budino was to die for. All in all a most pleasant experience. I would go back.

Wow!, who knew it could be this good.

As a mistral regular, I have been in and out of the trendy bar scene here. Yet, finally ate dinner in the dimly lit dining-room. Our server very attentive, professional-a little to over the top with knowledge to the point of like i really dont care about EVERY ingrediant. The food was fabulous, not to heavy, but remained VERY flavorful....Kobe meatballs are to die for, Lamb was amazing, great portion size...dessert, well the panna cotta truly sublime. The wine list, prepare to shell out big $$$ for mediocre wines.

Great food, terrible service -- not worth it

I took some colleagues to Sorrelina, and our service was terrible. We asked our server to give us 5 minutes to choose a wine and after at least 15 minutes we had to grab someone else and ask them to find him. My salad was missing a key ingredient, and when I told the server, he didn't believe me. Then he passed by our table 3 times over the next 10 minutes (pausing to refill our wine glasses) before he brought the ingredient out. It was a little surreal. Generally each course took too long to arrive and then we felt slightly rushed to pay our check. Food was great, but for the price I expected top-notch service, as well. I doubt I would go back -- there are too many other great restaurants in Boston.

good food at Sorrelina

We had a great experience dining at Sorrelina. The decor is classic and atmosphere is fun, in addition to that the food was amazing. The Kobe beef meatballs and other meat entrees were outstanding, while my friend had a tasteless fish entree which made us certain Sorrelinas specializes are meat and not fish-(would really not recommend the fish).
The wait in the bar was a bit hectic; the bar is is over crowded and small, and there was a wait for a class on wine. Yet, the service at Sorrelina was good, and we had a great experience.

Great food.. less than great service

My boyfriend and I went out for a nice dinner and to try this new restaurant. I thought Sorrelina was beautiful inside and the white flowering trees out front are gorgeous! The food was fantastic, espeically the Kobe meatballs! Our service, on the other hand, not so great. We waited about 15 minutes before we could even order our wine, my boyfriend got the wrong pasta, and then we had to wait 20 minutes after our dessert (fantastic cannoli!) was taken away before the check came (fatal flaw)..I'd probably give it another chance since everyone else seems to think the service is great.. maybe our waitor was having a bad night.

Excellent! Needs that final polish...

It's the talk of the town. Packed on a Monday night. The space is beautiful. The service, tops. The menu has an Italian/Asian starter selection from two Japanese style raw fish options, to tripe and Fonduta with an Italian flare. The crudo (hamachi sashimi 'carpaccio') was underwhelming. The tuna, however, was sublime. The tripe with smoked tomatos was so good it made you forget you're eating tripe. Kobe meatballs with loooong fresh extruded pasta tubes were a welcome mid dinner treat. The Secondi's were where the menu lost some momentum and inventiveness. Roast chicken? Pork & beans? Steak and mash? Salmon? Even the non-PC (but very retro)Veal was on the menu. The Bronzoni however was tasty... In fairness, we didn't get to try many of the entrees. The desserts (esp Cannoli) were devoured. Loved our wait staff. Great place. Looking forward to the refinements that are to come.

Excellent

Sorellina is by far the best restaurant I have been to in a while. From the moment you walk in the doors you feel as though you are the most important person in the room. Ian, the bartender was fantastic, very attentive and his drinks were first rate. The minute we sat at our table our waiter Michael was there to welcome us. He was fabulous! He had great recommendations and was pleasant to talk to. The tuna appetizer was unbelievable and the main course (sirloin) was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend everyone to try this restaurant. It is a tad pricy but well worth the money.

Incredible experience

The service was superb, bartenders more than attentive, food to die for- and the atmosphere very pleasant. It is my favorite place in Boston. It's is very European, but NOT pretentious at all!
