Description: 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.

Sorellina is in our neighborhood and while it has taken us a while to find her we will make this a regular spot for dining now that we have discovered such a gem in Back Bay. There is a passion for great food and service that you can sense when you sit down at your table at Sorellina. The atmosphere has been impeccably designed and carefully maintained. Our service last night was perfectly balanced between attentive and unobtrusive. Our waiter was knowledgable not only with the menu but the art of great service. He was a gentleman serving ladies and gentlemen.
The menu showed a balance between light fair and traditional Italian but with a lift.
I started with the appetizer of Verture. Fresh chilled steamed vegetable medley of jumbo asparagus, artichokes, peas, fava, pickled ramps with lemon whipped ricotta. Perfect.
My date enjoyed the Polpo,grilled octopus, squid ink cous cous, cherry peppers, finocchio. Outstanding.
For main courses we chose Fettuccine with market exotic mushrooms and truffle butter along with Veal Saltimbocca, prosciutto, maitake mushrooms and truffle whipped potato. I have never had such a spectacular saltimbocca. The chef prepared veal tenderloin with pounding the poor veal to death, allowing the character of the tenderloin to stand up, complimented by the traditional prosciutto and mushrooms. A must have.
A side dish of eggplant rollatini, ricotta, mortared pesto genovese joined our entrees. Slightly uneventful but delicious.
Take time to enjoy Sorellina, you will be glad you did.

This beautiful restaurant deserves its reputation. The elegant dining area, the large wait staff and the meals are wonderful. You have 2-3 wait staff there to fulfill your every request. The varied menu has a taste of something for everyone. The wine selection is large with wines from all over the world. This is a true dining experience.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for dinner and made reservations for us. When we arrived the women at the front desk could find the reservations for 4 people. They were not friendly or accommodating and had us stand there for 10 minutes before deciding what to do. They finally seated us a
table in a not to great location. But I must say the food was delicious and our waiter was very good.

This is NOT an Italian restaurant. Based on the menu I doubt the chef has ever seen or eaten in Italy. Italians do not use spice. This restaurant overspices everything especially the Octopus. I would say this is an American restaurant, there is NOTHING Italian about it except perhaps they have 6 pasta dishes. If you want Italian try the North End, this is overpriced and frequented by diners that must not know decent Italian food. Don't waste your time or money.

Love it here. Was busy, as usual, and another excellent meal here. I tend to have the same thing each time for a main course, cause its so amazing... The veal “saltimbocca” w/ prosciutto, maitake mushrooms, and truffle whipped potato. Pastas were excellent, esp. the pasta with Wagyu beef meatballs. Restaurant is pricey... but excellent. Fine service.
