I dined with friends, each trying something different. Past with meatballs and marinara, chicken Marsala, and a special salad. All dishes were very tasty.

We had dinner at Sorrento's sitting on the covered patio. We had our mini Schnauzer with us and they brought a water bowl for her. Service was good, and the pizza was fantastic.

Artisan style restaurant with a lot of paintings and a large patio. The cooking is serious and the food nicely presented. I had the best Greek salad I have ever had anywhere. The servers were exceptionally good.

The pizza was good but I loved the ambiance even more! Great paintings throughout the restaurant. They also had a great wine list. Would definitely go back when in the area.
