“Old School and I Love That!”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

Had dinner at Sorrento last night. I love this place-- great food and a quiet atmosphere where you can actually hear what your dinner companions are saying without having to read lips. We had a lovely table in front of the fireplace. We dined to live piano music that added just the right feel. The food was true Italian and done very well. This place in a little bit like stepping back in time but in a very good way.

“Very nice ambiance”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

The ambiance of the restaurant is great, our food was good but not to die for. We arrived early and decided to seat at the bar…. it took the bartender almost 10 minutes to pay attention to us. Obviously he was very busy, but then they need to get him some help. He had ZERO personality, no smile, no nothing. After having our drinks we went to get our table, the two young ladies at the reception area the same thing ZERO personality they were NOT welcoming at all. The only thing that saved the night was our wonderful waiter Anthony who was funny and helpful although it took a while to get our main course…. not his fault though, the restaurant was busy. The bill was pretty high too …. we love Da Marco which is not expensive but it is very consistent with their food, services, etc….we just wanted to try something new. Maybe we did not have good luck that night.

“Worked for me”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Nice place for good tasting food. I had the squash almond soup which was great and short rib that did melt in my mouth. Low lighting can make it a date night. Good options on less expensive to (12 dollars glass) very expensive wine.

“Solicitous service, very good food”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

I've been here for several dinners, usually related to work. Menu is limited, and decent choices that do remind me of southern Italy. Waiters can tend to hover, and the food is good. But, there are much better Italian restaurants in Houston.

“Gem on Westheimer”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Sorrento's is a gem on Westheimer. In a small strip center, its excellence is found from the minute you walk in the door. Personal and calm, it's a perfect place for friends, couples and sophisticated diners. The service was excellent, not rushed and very accommodating. The food was outstanding. Perfectly prepared even with special requests, substitutions and arrangements. You won't waste your time here or your money. Enjoy!
