    I had high hopes for this place based on the newest reviews. However, it was a huge disappointment. The food was awful and it ruined our Father's Day dinner. 4 people from our party returned their food. The waitress was nice. Jonathon the manager avoided our table after I asked to speak with him regarding the food. With all the good Italian restaurants out there, do yourself a favor and avoid this one.

    Our first time here and the food was outstanding. The restaurant is... vintage? but that adds to part of the charm, I think. We love old restaurants that have lots of stories within the walls. We'll definitely come back.

    We love coming to Sorrento’s is one of our favorite places in Jacksonville. Amazing service they remember little details from prior visits and put great effort in making your experience one that makes us wanting to come back for over 35 years. The desserts better than any other restaurant we have been. The espresso is the real thing smooth and yum

    Sorrento is a lovely Italian Restaurant with great food. We had the Shrimp Scampi over Linguini last night, redolent of garlic and herbs - delicious. Also enjoyed the Veal Florentine, which had perfectly sautéed veal over an abundant bed of fresh spinach and sautéed mushrooms with garlic. The housemate rolls were delicious. The service is always friendly and professional, and the atmosphere is quiet enough to enjoy a conversation. We will be going back.

    Would certainly recommend for a romantic / quiet dinner. The bruschetta was phenomenal, Veal Marsala couldn't have been better, and the fehttuchini - top notch. One of my favorite Italian hot-spots in Jacksonville.

    What a great neighbourhood gem. From the moment we walked in, the warmth of the host and the staff radiated. We had the shrimp scampi, fettuccini Alfredo with Italian sausage, veal Marsala, and 2 children’s meals. The shrimp were fresh and perfectly cooked. The veal was great as was the fettuccini. The limoncello cheesecake was delicious. The tiramisu was good, but not fantastic. We also ordered the lava cake. The cake was good, but the large scoop of gelato must have cooled the lava portion down significantly as there was really no “lava”. But it was still good. The service was impeccable! Definitely recommend Sorrentos. They exceeded expectations and look forward to dining there again.

    Sorrento is a wonderful, family owned Italian restaurant. The staff is friendly, and have the knowledge of lots of years of experience. I ordered the Penne Primavera with Shrimp, and it had lots of great vegetables as well as abundant delicious shrimp. My husband ordered the Salmon Puttanesca, and the Salmon was cooked perfectly, and the Puttanesca sauce was delicious, and also served over the side of pasta. All meals come with delicious homemade rolls, and a side salad (which is uninspired).
