Always a great local place and under the new management it is even better - outstanding food in an attractive surrounding - More Italian than some restaurants in Italy - if you have not tried it you must!

Now known as just Solerno. Another restaurant by Alessandro Pirozzi. Opened end of November. Much more upscale than the prior spot. High quality. Excellent food and service. Pasta dishes were outstanding, as was the coppino. Extensive wine selection. Not cheap, but good value for the quality and portion sizes.

It's always a pleasure to find a great run family restaurant, I heard they sold the restaurant to a new couple but are keeping the staff. The food was outstanding, and the service was quick and caring. The décor was right out of the '70s; nic-nac's, old travel photo's, best of all, plastic grapes coming out of ferns! I wouldn't...

After a brilliant sunset at Laguna Beach, a dinner at Sorrento adds a nice family touch to the end of the day. We ordered a fried calamari starter and it arrived quickly and was freshly cooked calamari. It arrived hot and crisp and not oily but the calamari was a bit rubbery. The marinara sauce was bold and full flavored... More

My wife and I ate here expecting another half inspired gluten free pasta - you know, the norm for most Italian restaurants. It was great. The space is small, intimate and welcoming; a nice small family restaurant. Sautéed mushrooms were a great warmup. Cappuccino and vanilla ice cream was a perfect finale.
