If you are over the age of 30 and want a nice bar to eat dinner at and chat with others....go somewhere else. This is not the place for you. I found the bar staff pretentious and snooty. Took them forever to acknowledge my presence and the bar was almost empty. After work crowd was non-existent. Won't ever be back...

Yes, it is expensive, but everything was homemade and absolutely delicious. The wine is pricey but excellent. The choices are limited for food, but the choices...are excellent...the gnocchi with the vermont sauce was out of sight...the homemade fetticini with chanterelles was fabulous, and the marvelous hot chocolate melted cake was to die for. AND most important we were in town... More

This is a fantastic restaurant in Boston. Expect to pay around $600 for 5 people with 2 bottles of wine, apps and 2 desserts. I spent my last birthday here. The chef prepared 2 apps for the table: gnocchi with lobster sauce and meatballs. Both were excellent. We all ordered different dishes and everyone was very happy with their choices.... More

Visited in Nov 16 for a birthday dinner. We arrived a bit late for our 6 PM reservation. We had planned to utilize the onsite valet to park. When we arrived, no valet to be found. No people, no signs, nothing. We knew we were on the right street, at the right place, just no one there to take the... More

This place was delicious. Exceeded our expectations. The service wasn't the best but the food was delicious. I had a fettuccine pasta, the Milanesa, and tiramisu. It was amazing!

Sorellina is right nex to the main building of the Boston Public Library on Copley Square. It is expensive, and worth it. The food is extraordinarily good and -- on the two occasions I've been there recently -- the service is extraordinarily professional. The noise levels are tolerable. Altogether a first-rate place. On my last visit I left my credit... More

The Atmosphere is cool and professional and the food is beyond beyond.The three dishes we had were unique and better then I have eaten in other restaurants. Being a retired chef and being Italian, my wife has tasted many romaine salads. She scored their romaine salad far and above the best she ever had. I am an oyster lover and... More

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.
