Located just off of Front Street, this charming little Italian restaurant is a pleasurable dining experience. The wine recommendations are spot on. Very special little restaurant.

Had dinner here with my wife during the week. Not too busy. The food and service were both excellent! Wife had pasta with house marinara sauce and I had pasta with a white cream sauce. Both dishes were prepared just right and very tasty. While this is not Italy, the experience was totally positive and we will be back.

You have a choice of quieter dining side or bar side, both serve the same food. All entrees are fantastic, served hot, complimentary bread with olive oil and balsamic dipping bowl signed by your waiter, friendly staff, crisp caesar is wonderful! Usually pretty busy but worth the wait if you need to!!

We ended up at Sorellina based primarily on the reviews we read on TripAdvisor, and I could not have asked for a better experience. The experience we had was phenomenal from the moment we sat down. The service was top-notch, and both the chicken parmesan and Salsiccia Italiana were to die for. The restaurant could get a little loud at... More

Have enjoyed eating here several times over the years, each time it is still very pleasing. The atmosphere can get loud depending on the people and what celebratory reason they may be there for.

Excellent food! Great service by Cam! We were sat in the front window, which we enjoyed all the pedestrians and activities outside on a cold evening. The petite Antipasti salad was very good, next time, I'll get a larger one! The Lemon Piccata Chicken was presented beautifully. My tips & Fungi, served with risotto was absolutely perfect, there is a... More

This restaurant, which has been several other restaurants in the past, has nice food. The atmosphere is very loud and busy, so if you want to talk to the person/people you are dining with, ask to sit towards the back of the restaurant, which is a little quieter. It is a nice, cozy place in the Winter.

We celebrated a couple of wedding anniversaries here. I had the beef tenderloin and mushroom risotto, which was fantastic! Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals, and our server Case was wonderful! His wine recommendation was spot on, and he was attentive and fun. I definitely will dine here again!

Having worked at an Italian Restaurant, I have high expectations for the cuisine. So thankful we wondered in while on vacation, dinner here was the highlight of our trip! Food was excellent, starting with the bruschetta, ending with the luxurious flourless chocolate cake. Each dish was delectable, server was friendly and warm. Can't say enough good things about this place,... More

Sorellina in Traverse City, Michigan is an excellent fine dining restaurant and bar. I went with a good friend on a Friday night. We were cold, so we sat by the fireplace. The restaurant opens for dinner, and fills rather quickly so reservations are recommended. The bar space at Sorellina was packed and looked like a lot of fun. The... More
