Perhaps my favourite local. The truffle arancini and affogato were outstanding. I didn’t like the new black ink pasta dish, usually the pasta dishes are absolutely outstanding too but I thought this one was really lacking flavour and that je ne sais quoi that makes the other pasta dishes on the menu a truly memorable experience. Super friendly staff and I feel incredibly good in that type of interior decor.

I normally love dining at Sorella, but this time i was a little underwhelmed. I feel like the dishes have changed slightly since last time, as i recall being blown away by the ricotta starter and papardelle whereas this time they both lacked a bit of flavor particularly the pasta. The previous version had fennel seed and really packed a punch but this time the dish was bland. I'll still be back though as on the whole it's a great restaurant. I'll be trying the truffle pasta next time, everyone in our party raved about it!

Sorella is a gem: great food, great service, great ambience without any of it being too pretentious. Tucked away down a side street, you’re not quite sure WHAT to expect..,then the smell of fresh baking hits you as you enter.
The chefs menu is very good value and the staff are charming.

Sorella was excellent! Food was very creative and fresh, I loved their vegetarian menu featuring some nice local ingredients. I always appreciate restaurants that offer house filled bottles of sparkling water, as I love bubbly water, but don’t like the impact it has on the environment—kudos Sorella!

Tasting menu gives an excellent intro to the wide variety of dishes on offer. The truffle arrancini were standout. The lamb not as good as we had hoped but everything else ranged from very good to fantastic. Very interesting, reasonably priced Italian wine list. Great atmosphere for a fun night out

We had he chef's menu as recommended by a friend. The food was balanced and tasty and well cooked. We also had some great cocktails and Italian wines. The service was friendly and enthusiastic and the ambience buzzy. If I had a slight issue it was that the ecoustics were a tad noisy and we had to shout.

Went for a birthday dinner with husband. The food was very good. The portion of primi,which was ravioli with spinach,was on a small side, delicious though.
We thoroughly enjoyed the affogato&vodka milk dessert.
Would definitely recommend.

Very friendly service. Good food, particularly enjoyed the many anti-paste and the duck and mushroom angelotti - delicious! Great wine too and reasonably priced. Good value for Sunday lunch menu! It was my brother-in-law’s birthday and they prepared a small cake + candle for him which we all appreciated!

A hidden gem. I came across it by chance when looking for an intimate venue to catch up with dear friends I hadn’t seen in ages. Everything was perfect, the atmosphere/ambiance, the setting, positioning of the tables, the food was superb, absolutely delicious and the staff were amazing. You can say for sure we left very very happy. We have also put it in as our anniversary place to book up a year from our original booking but we will definitely be back with partners/friends before then. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

We’ve wanted to visit for a while and managed to get a table on a recent Friday night. It was very busy but the staff were friendly and patient and did an amazing job. Not least the ones in the kitchen but the food was amazing! We had the set menu which - for the amount and quality of food we had - was an absolute bargain! The wine list was also great. We couldn’t find a fault! We lived in Italy for a time and we’ve finally found a place that served Italian food the way we remembered it! Every single thing we ate was utterly delicious and we will be coming back!

Got in fairly early on Friday night, simply to avoid the huge weekend crowd. We were the first customer entering the restaurant on the evening.
Service was very attentive without being overwhelming, the food simply delicious and full of flavour.
Atmosphere, from decor to music to temperature simply spot on for my likings.
As italian, I can honestly say it was one of the best meals I had in London so far.
Great job and compliments to all staff.

One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in London. Food is delicious, service impecable, great decoration... one would struggle to find anything negative to say about this. £40 p.p sharing entrants, a main each and dessert is great value. There’s no doubt I’ll be coming back.

Excellent ‘local’ Italian - great food, very friendly service and lovely restaurant. Everything good except the Ricotta starter which was strange.
