Editorial Rating: Recommended
Satisfying favorites and a touch of decorative class score a hit among the bullpen of Italian joints surrounding Fenway Park.
The Scene
Candlelit tables, warm-hued walls and an airy open kitchen contribute to one of the Fenway area's most comfortable dining atmospheres. The restaurant enjoys a loyal clientele of young professionals and graduate students. Friendly, accommodating servers keep water glasses and breadbaskets filled, even on the sidewalk patio (a favorite of Red Sox fans looking for more than a pre-game hot dog).

The Food
Sorento's kitchen covers its bases by offering something (something Italian, that is) for everyone, from pizzas to pastas to freshly filled cannolis. Given the reasonable prices, menu quality is impressively high. An exceptional house antipasto-- a heaping platter of vegetables (marinated and roasted) and meats and cheeses (imported)--is a satisfying meal in itself. Sun-dried tomatoes, pignoli nuts and asparagus conspire to make Sorento's chicken Parmesan an exceptional one. If it's available, finish with a slice of delicate, not-too-sweet tiramisu.

 

"Loyalists relish this quiet, hidden Fenway Northern Italian whose delicious, interesting pizza and large portion of pasta can be slowly savored outside in the candlelight on the patio most agree it's the only pie worth considering. Flavorful food makes this comfortable Fenway Italian a solid find, especially for the best pizzas and pastas in the low-price range. SORENTO'S, Recognized as one of the top pizzeria restaurants rated excellent."   ZAGATsurvey
