You have to love this awesome Italian spot in a very odd location, wedged right next to the entrance to the Mass Pike. Navigate the crossing from the Westin and you're in for a treat... the finest Italian chow in the city. Love the ambiance as long as it's not too overcrowded... I like going a little off peak for...

When traveling abroad I am always weary of Italian restaurants (I am Italian, live in London, and while overall Italian food abroad has improved over the years, in many cities it still is a bit hit and miss, however Sorellina, italian-fusion, was definitely a hit :) The Lobster gnocchi were delicious! The lobster, as it should be in any respectable... More

Our first time here at the recommendation of a relative. Nicely laid out, pleasing design and an inventive menu all made for high expectations. We were not disappointed! Great wine by the glass choices with super premium selections available. Enjoyed a tasty, vibrant nebbiolo that matched perfectly with both appetizer and main course. Couldn't resist the octopus as a starter;... More

The service was excellent. To start with we had the Caesar salad, yellowtail tuna and arugula salad. The arugula dressing was too lemony. The tuna was wonderful it had a... More

From the moment you enter, they take care of you very well. Food is excellent (and priced accordingly) and so is the service. Good wine and beer choices. Hard for 2 people to get a table because the tables all are set for 4. Meanwhile, the bench seating is terrible - - noisy and crowded and uncomfortable. If they would... More

For one salad, one half order of pasta, two fish entrees, two glasses of wine, and one dessert, the bill came to over $165, including tax. The food quality was fabulous and service most attentive. The only drawback, for gourmands, was the very small portion sizes. Thus, for truly high prices, one gets quality, but not quantity. However, my companion... More

I agree with prior reviewers who say that it is a good space to actually have a conversation and be heard. This restaurant is unique in that there is a positive somewhat hip vibe, yet, the acoustics are outstanding. For that reason, excellent to have a business dinner here. The food was really good, but the one standout for me... More

I had a dinner with three friends of mine. The decor was luxurious and the atmosphere was sophisticated. I had grilled octopus and sirloin steak and both were very delicious. All my friends were also satisfied with the meals and atmosphere. The prices were fair for such a fancy restaurant. This restaurant is recommendable.

Beautiful, quiet restaurant. Impeccable service. Veal saltimbocca was excellent, veal milanese was good. Had no room for dessert. Prices in good restaurants in this area of Boston are higher than you might pay anywhere else but NYC. Frankly, I do it again for the ambience alone.

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.
