Nice local pizza place. Has a good menu of Italian food. Their pizza is great. Got take out didn't have to wait long for it to cook. They were busy on a Saturday night.

Sunday lunch/brunch and the place is jumping. Clearly it's a bit of a Sunday institution in Statesville. We have come off the highway en route to Raleigh so don't know the form. The waiter is quick, helpful and informative. He brings us bread and an olive oil and balsamic dip. We order a large pizza to share. As we wait we look around and notice all the waiters handing out boxes to adjacent tables. What they can't eat is going in the boxes and being taken home. We understand why when our pizza arrives. it's the size of Luxemburg, so big in fact that it sits on a separate table alongside ours and comes with a large spatula to divvy up the pieces. And, we might add, it is delicious. This place knows how to do Italian. We make a pathetic assault on the pizza coming nowhere close to consuming it all. We decline the box but it gets boxed anyway. We don't ask why.
This is one of those places that knows its trade. Why the huge portions, who knows? But the food is wonderful, the service attentive and the atmosphere happy, bright and cheerful. Maybe they will open a branch in our town.

We chose this restaurant based on other TripAdvisor reviews and they didn’t steer us wrong. The restaurant is in a strip mall, but once you walk in, the interior is lovely yet casual. We were seated quickly (around 9pm) after the Balloon Fest. The bread they served was warm and light, with options of pesto olive oil, parmesan, or butter. We tried all three—delicious. Three of us shared the gourmet caprese pizza with prosciutto, which was decadent—rich and buttery. They had many other Italian entrée options—we just weren’t that hungry. We will certainly try them if we are ever back in Statesville. The service was excellent and our server was happy and friendly. We would definitely recommend this place to others.

I was driving thru Statesville with my daughter and stopped to eat dinner. We saw the restaurant in a strip mall and was pleasantly surprised. It was very clean and the food was great. Jose was an excellent server and I will definitely eat there again the next time I am in the area.

We were passing through Statesville and first stopped at Red Lobster. However, after waiting several minutes with no one coming to seat us, we left and stopped at Sorrento. It's located in a strip mall but has a perfectly cozy ambiance when you walk in. Our server, Jose, was very helpful and friendly. He made us feel like regulars to this restaurant, rather than first timers. We both had the manicotti, which was excellent. However, I saw so many people ordering the pizza that I've decided that next time, I'm getting pizza!
