I love the view you get at this restaurant....overlooks the vineyard and the lake....absolutely gorgeous. As far as food, I have been somewhat disappointed...perhaps it is what I have ordered. I had the Pesto Prawn Linguine...while the prawns were cooked perfectly, my linguine was swimming in the pesto sauce...to heavy handed for my liking. My wife had the Gnocchi Carbonara... More

We visited this restaurant during the Thanksgiving weekend and had an amazing dinner. The staff was very helpful and recommended a great bottle of wine to accompany our dinner. Our table enjoyed crab/salmon linguini, ravioli, chicken mushroom fettuccine, seafood pasta, numerous specialty salads and of course dessert! The setting was great up on the hill and the lit courtyard. Hope... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with 10 ladies here sitting next to the outside ponds. Service was excellent. Not a huge menu but enough variety that everyone can find something they like. The individual pizzas are great. The caprese salad was fresh and delicious.

Took 10 people to Sorrento's and we all enjoyed our meal. Try the butterscotch dessert - really good! The restaurant was packed so our only "complaint" is that it is very noisy so come prepared to talk a bit louder. Don't forget to wine taste next door and their gift shop is very good. Views from the outdoor patio are... More

Great service and winery but food just average. Ordered Filet Mignon and Rib eye, came out blue instead of medium rare, sent back still tough meat. Understand Chef left and open up a ne restaurant in Manson

We must have caught the staff on an off night, service was disappointing. I had made a reservation and requested a view table. When we arrived, not only did we not get a view, the hostess showed us to a table in front of the fireplace, which is the only place without any view in this open air restaurant. I... More

Sorrento's Ristorante is located at Tsillan Cellars, about two miles from Chelan. Located up the hillside, the dining room offers panoramic views of surrounding hillsides and Lake Chelan through floor to ceiling glass doors. Their menu offers a variety of dishes, and suggests wine pairings of their excellent wines. Our dinners were delicious and nicely presented, and we both loved... More

Be hungry because they give you a plate full of great food. No one at our table could finish their lunch. Meatball sandwich is awesome. Wife's salad was excellent. Tomato basil soup - oh man!

The restaurant is part of the Chelan Winery. It is situated on a hill among the vineyards with an excellent view of the lake in the background. The room is large and with all sliding doors pulled back gave the feeling of dining outside. I had the Italian sausage and ravioli, my wife had the chicken linguine. Both were very... More

The location, views, food and service are Top! I didn't want to leave this place! The setting is so beautiful up on the hill - can see Lake Chelan! It's so well maintained and really Classy! I can't wait to go back soon again!

Sorrento's Ristorante at Tsillan Cellar's owner, Dr. Bob Jankelson, admits that the food of Italy captured him before he developed his interest in wine. Dozens of teaching trips to Italy instilled an appreciation of Italian cuisine paired with food friendly wine shared with friends and family. The same meticulous attention to detail evident in Tsillan Cellars stunning Italian architecture and grounds, transfers to a kitchen that brings world class dining to the shores of Lake Chelan. While Sorrento Ristorante is the perfect setting for a romantic evening of dining with that special person it is also the perfect venue to entertain business colleagues, friends, or have a warm family friendly dining experience. In winter, the inviting Italian fireplace and panoramic views of Lake Chelan and snow clad mountains blend with award winning food and wine to leave indelible memories. Outstanding ambiance, food, wine and service- four reasons Sorrento's Ristorante at Tsillan Cellars was named OpenTable Top 100 Scenic Restaurants in America in 2014.
