Went here for a business dinner. The place is very nice with a warm decor. Service was very attentive. Friendly and professional. The restaurant has a very large and somewhat overpriced wine list. Not too many lower cost selections. The wine service was perfect with...proper stemware and the wine was served at a proper temperature. The food I'd have to say was somewhat disappointing. The fresh bread was delicious. However, my salad was under-dressed and dry. I ordered the maccheroncelli which is apparently the signature dish. The meatballs were very tasty and done well but the pasta was served too hard, not al dente, but hard. The sauce was nothing to get excited about. No one in the party complained, though no one raved about the food either.More

My friend booked Sorellina for dinner during our stay this week. The hostess sat us at a lovely, corner banquette, which we very much appreciated. Our waiter, Mark, recommended a rose wine which we sampled and found delicious, so we shared a bottle. We were...torn between the mafaldine with shitake and oyster mushrooms, black truffle butter and parmigiano and the butternut squash raviolis in brown butter and sage sauce. Mark said the mafaldine was his favorite dish. From the moment it arrived, the rich aroma made our mouths water. A loaf of beautiful bread also was delivered. We happily finished our dinners. We liked that for many of the pastas you could choose a small or large plate. We chose the small and it was the perfect amount. We shared a tiramisu for dessert which was creamy with a crunchy center. Delicious! The service was flawless, attentive but not intrusive. This experience was memorable. We will be back!More

We had dinner at the bar and it was a fantastic experience. The oysters (surprising with a kind of watermelon sorbet), the gnocchis with lobster sauce were unique. To improve: the Tiramisú. Probably not at the level of the rest. By the way, it was...so good that we already booked to come back with friends next Saturday.More

My wife and I went here for dinner on the recommendation of one of our waiters a t the Copley Plaza. She had the tuna tartare starter which was good and the risotto which was "absolutely out of this world". I had the Caesar salad...to start which was disappointing. It was just leaves of Romaine lettuce, separated and sprinkled with cheese, and half of a single filleted anchovy top. My main was Swordfish which was good. Overall I thought it was expensive for the food and drink provided.More

The restaurant is very elegant and the noise level is good. Our waiter was excellent and really took care of us. He also had a great sense of humor. The wine list is outstanding including wine by the glass. Nice Italian wines that are hard...to find in the US. The pasta was excellent as well as the Bronzino. Would go again.More

The ambiance was fantastic. The restaurant was clean and very elegant. The staff was very professional and accommodating. The only downside was the food. It wasn’t what we were expecting. Small portions for the amount it costs. We had better Italian meals in the north...end.More

We had an excellent meal in Sorrelina. Fresh Oysters to start. Perfect. And an off menu special pasta starter which was superb. Main courses Branzino for me , as good as I've ever had, and a beautiful roast Chicken dish. Rose champagne with the oysters...and a bottle of Rose. We were too full for dessert but they very kindly brought out a scoop of ice cream and Brandy Snap with a lit candle for the birthday girl. The service from Nancy and Schneider was super friendly and attentive. We'd highly recommend Sorrelina.More

Have dined here a number of times over the years - used to be a favorite but the trend is negative. The waitress and fresh bread were highlights. However, other items were not up to par for this price level. Glass of wine was old,...salmon had freezer burnt taste, halibut was overcooked, and broccoli rabe side was stalks in a pool of oil. Not sure I will return.More

I truly believe this has to be one of the best restaurants in Boston.! Food and service were 10 out of 10. Kirk, our waiter, should be hired as a consultant by other restaurants to teach what truly great service looks like! By the end...of the night, it felt like we were saying goodbye to a great friend! Extremely attentive without being overbearing. Great recommendations on food and wines. Hamachi crudo, Pulpo, and Caesar Salad started the evening off right. Veal Milanese was pounded thin, well seasoned and was extremely tender. Pappardelle Bolognese was flavorful and cooked a perfect al dente. Branzini was served as two fillets. Again, extremely tasty, well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Finally, the meatball dish was devoured quickly and we were told it was “awesome!” 😃 If the restaurant fell short a little bit, it would be with the dessert. We had the chocolate and lemon curd offerings. Both were good but not great. We wish other options were offered. We highly recommend this restaurant and request a table with Kirk!More

Without question a 5 out of 5. Amazing and creative cuisine with unique twists to make something which could be ordinary into the very special. Wonderful blend of flavor with great balance. Very attentive and respectful service. It’s not for every day but great for...very special occasions.More

We had a perfect evening at Sorellina. We loved the food, the service and the atmosphere. We recommend the broccoli rabe and the soft polenta as sides. It’s a little pricy, it worth it.
