Italian
A Harrow favourite for more than thirty years, the Sorrentina restaurant specialises in ultra traditional, ultra authentic Italian cuisine with a fine dining edge. With an interior blending old school trattoria styling with the neat white tablecloths and polished silverware of high end city restaurants, Sorrentina balances a casual and relaxed atmosphere with romance and quality, helped along by a large dose of excellence when it comes to service. Regularly changing, Sorrentina’s menu uses the best available ingredients to showcase the finest flavours of the ever popular cuisine of Italy; risottos and pasta dishes, fish, meat and a wide variety of vegetarian choices too. From its opening in the January of 1981, until today, Sorrentina has gained excellent reviews from local press and proved a word of mouth hit with the people of Harrow as well, a feat that even the finest restaurants of the West End struggle to achieve.

We’ve lived in Harrow for many years and really wish we’d found this restaurant earlier! The food was great and well priced and the atmosphere and homey feel of the restaurant made it a great evening out. Would definitely recommend to others.

A real gem in Harrow, possibly lost among the spicier fare in the borough. But if you fancy delicious Italian food that's reasonably-priced and served up in a charming, quiet setting, then I'd highly recommend this lovely little eatery.

Even after reading the good reviews we found that Sorrentina passed all of our expectations. The owners were delightful, informative and friendly. The interior is charming, authentic and unpretentious; and all the food we ate was delicious. We enjoyed meals from their specials board as well as from the extensive main menu - ate far too much, but left feeling very satisfied 'though rather full! Regrettably we live over 60 miles away otherwise we would be frequent visitors, but we hope to return one day.

The restaurant is very old fashioned, but this has it's own charm. However the bright lighting is a bit much, they could do with softer lighting, maybe a candle here or there.

The tables are a bit too close together and walkways between tables are very narrow my husband got knocked on the head by every customer going to the loo.

Having said all that, the food was lovely, very homely, fresh and tasty. I will go back, but not for a romantic meal, but rather a nice family get together.

Waiter said he would bring bruschetta on the house. Did not bring it. Did not inform us of specials or menu of the day.
Staff seemed more interested in family or friends visiting. Waiter not attentive,
We have visited this restaurant often and was really disappointed this time round.

Exceptional service and wonderful food cooked by chef Marco. There was a very friendly family atmosphere and a lot of regulars who clearly enjoy coming back. This is a hidden gem. The service is the best bit, highly entertaining, you will be very well looked after. It's not cheap but it's definitely worth it.

Sorrentina has been a Harrow institution for at least 35/40 years. Having been there several times, it never fails to impress. The food is fantastic. the service is excellent, and it is reasonably priced. Michael is friendly and always delivers with the excellent consistency of his menu. Having tried 3 home made deserts, he gave a us one more on the house, and they were all delicious. See you again soon !

A touch of Italy in its decor, menu and service. The food was very good and the house wine excellent value. The vegetables included in the main course price were plentiful, varied and perfectly cooked. The desserts were also very good. We will be returning soon.

Authentic Italian experience! Went here for a quiet meal for two one Thursday and was not disappointed - the restaurant is quite small and cosy, and run by a very welcoming Italian family and the decor gives it a real sense of a traditional Italian restaurant.

The food was certainly Italian and all cooked really well, I had the fillet of steak medallions while my partner had veal, both of which were excellent; the wine list was good and not needlessly extensive as some places. The service was friendly and we were made to feel welcome through complimentary limoncello at the end which was a nice touch.

Considering the location this place is a real find out in Zone 5 and well worth the trip - highly recommended!

Took a friend here for his 85th birthday. Not our first visit, as it is close to him, and not our last either. Two of us had Saltimbocca all Romana - seemed very authentic to me, and very tasty. The other guest had Spaghetti ai Frutti de Mare. On the menu this comes with a tomato and chilli sauce, but this restaurant is always happy to tailor a dish to your requirements so they changed this to a light wine and cream sauce. To finish, as always, the very individual profiteroles were irrestible!
