This is a great special occasion spot. The dining room is simple, sleek and elegant. Start will a delicious cocktail and enjoy the superlative service. The meatballs on the Primi menu are exceptionally delicious although the sauce is not traditional. Pasta dishes were also delicious and the wine list is super.

Food was really superior. We had little necks and braised beef ravioli for starters and the osso bucco special with risotto was outstanding. Great desserts as well. Our server was very knowledgeable about wine and the menu and gave us great advice without being too pushy. All around a great experience. Will definitely be back!

My girlfriend and I were in town for NYE. We booked well in advance, as we knew it would be busy. I had been years prior, and wanted my girlfriend to experience it. It certainly did not disappoint. Service and food were both excellent. A very warm and comfortable setting. Just great!

I've eaten at Sorellina each time I've traveled to Boston on business. It's right across the street from my hotel and so very convenient. It's also just a block from the Copley T station. First time there I had the infamous meatball appetizer, which lives up to the hype. Very very good. Followed it with the roast salmon, which at... More

I can't even begin to say how wonderful the food was and how amazing the staff were. We had a well behaved two year old and were truly scared. The veal was to die for, the eggplant rollini, the tagliatelle, the veal chop, the desserts - just wonderful. My go to restaurant from this day forward!

I dine out quite often, and am sort of fussy about fine dining. When not traveling, I visit restaurants all over Massachusetts and NH, and last week I brought one of my friends down to Boston to enjoy an evening at Sorellina.....(I can't cook, but I know how to eat, and it's a sister restaurant to Mistral) Sorellina is so...

Top end Italian restaurant with food, service and atmosphere. Excellent grilled octopus with sliced cherry peppers appetizer, followed by bone in veal Milanese accompanied by bussel sprouts. I'm in heaven! Extensive wine list finished with scrumptious deserts. Make sure you give your valet parking ticket to your server before leaving the table because that service is very slow.

Contemporary Italian-Mediterranean cuisine served in an upbeat and sophisticated environment by a staff intent on providing you with a truly memorable dining experience. Sorellina, the 'kid sister' of acclaimed Chef Jamie Mammano's Mistral provides an intense look at regional Italian food with a modern twist. Sorellina's wine list focuses on some hidden Italian gems paired with an international selection creating an effortless opportunity to explore the unknown. The warm-modern design intertwined with the glow of the back wall mural and the floor to ceiling windows are a visually stunning combination.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
