As we welcome our new normal, we have changed some things around. We are offering takeout with curbside pickup and online delivery through our online partners. Our patio is open weather dependent and reservations are strongly recommended. We have also stepped outside our Italian roots and have expanded our menu to include some of our favorites from our other restaurants. We hope to provide you a safe enjoyable experience and have trained our staff extensively in proper sanitation and interaction. We hope you enjoy your experience and we provided you some comfort in these surreal times.
Stay Safe!

Sorella has fantastic pastas and pizza. I highly recommend their rigatoni bolognese. They have a large menu and are always offering specials. Their happy hour deals are great and I can’t say enough about how friendly the service is. They have a cute outdoor table area set up that I’m hoping to enjoy a few more times before it gets cold out!

We have eaten at Sorella's many times and are never disappointed. Last night, we had their lobster pizza. It was AMAZING! We took advantage of the tables outside on Pratt Street. Pratt Street had entertainment at the other end of the street which was great to listen to. Our waiter was very attentive and personable. If you want a good meal, a nice glass of wine and great service, I highly recommend Sorella's.

The food was AMAZING, the outdoor dining area was perfect and the waitstaff was kind and attentive. The only drawback was there was a gentleman trying to solicit those dining outside for money saying he was homeless. But that was short lived and not persistent at all.

Other than that, it was a perfect evening for two! My Husband and I agree, the lobster fra diavolo was the BEST and 100% worth every penny!!

Had dinner here previously and it was phenomenal. Tonight, the calamari tasted more of fried batter than octopus, waitress was very good but food was delivered one plate or 2 plates at a time and didn’t know who was to receive what meal, chix parm was flavorless and marinara sauce was bland. No bread was served. The kids loved the French Fries and the lobster roll was excellent.

The restaurant was very nice and the staff was superb. The food was just ok. The shrimp scampi while packed with shrimp there was far too much pasta and not nearly enough sauce. And the shrimp probably could have been a bit fresher. My daughters were satisfied, one with the chicken parm. Portion was huge. And the other with a prosciutto pineapple jalapeño pesto pizza which she loved.

Appetizers were great but the main courses were just okay. My chicken marsala was not great. The chicken was too thick, a bit overcooked, and tough. The marsala sauce was not nearly rich enough. My girlfriend had the caprese panini and said it was just okay. A bit disappointed given the reviews I read on open table.

We had an excellent casual dinner prior to an event at the Bushnell. It was an easy walk from the Bushnell parking and we were done with dinner in plenty of time to walk back. The pizza was very tasty and the salad was good also. Our waiter was attentive and the ambiance was quite pleasant.

Everything was great for a party of 13 on Sat. night. Waiter was outstanding. Food was terrific. Only minor complaint was a cold breeze at times from either the ventilation or the doors.

Very disappointed. An Italian restaurant that does not offer bread. Food was below average. Hubby’s risotto clearly not fresh and obviously reheated as it separated and lay in a puddle of melted butter. My fusilli was extremely overdone almost to the point of mushy. Had a burrata appetizer which wasn’t bad but needed some greens or something additional besides the ball of burrata and some tomatoes. With all the options in Hartford not only for Italian but so much else I highly recommend walking past Sorella.

Food was ok but overall portions were small for the price. We were there early and even though the restaurant was empty our server was not attentive to our needs and not overly personable. Based on the reviews I read I expected more.

I had the best white clam pizza I ever had! The chicken parmigiana had a delicious sauce as well. Our waiter, Michael, was attentive and very professional with a great sense of humor! We will definitely be back. Such a asset to downtown Hartford!

We love Sorella for a nice pre-theater dinner. We always sit near the pizza oven in winter. It is cozy and pretty quiet.

We went to Sorella because they have allergy friendly options (Dairy free and Gluten free). They, surprisingly, were not at all accommodating. The server was dismissive of our questions about food choices. He was quite disinterested in helping find safe alternatives. Very disappointed in our experience. We won’t be back anytime soon.
