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.

I really want to like Sorellina, but it just didn’t quite live up to expectations. While our server was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive, and the support staff was very capable. We had the burrata and lobster stew as starters, and they were fine, though the burrata could have used more than one breadstick, and I’m still not sure how the figs worked into the dish—the flavor profiles just didn’t work for me. We ordered the lobster gnocchi and the veal for our entrees. The gnocchi was very flavorful if a little dense, and the veal itself was delicious, though the accompaniments were so-so. Dessert ordered included the donuts and cioccolatta, and both were good. The drinks were fine as well. I just wasn’t blown away by the experience, and a premium-priced restaurant should leave one feeling blown away, sad to find the experience over. That just didn’t happen tonight.

Earlier in the day I had come on my own to drop off roses and a gift to be brought out later during my wife's birthday dinner at specific times. The nice young lady at the front desk took notes for the waiter and later during the dinner he delivered exactly as requested, without me having to say a word to him. Well done! The atmosphere was great, not too loud, the food and wine were great, and the overall experience was memorable.

We went to Sorrelina for a "fancy" Saturday night dinner; my wife wore a nice dress, and I wore a jacket. We got to the restaurant about 15 minutes early, and they told us to wait in the bar, which was a modest fail, since there was no space in the bar nor any nearby tables. We did ultimately get a drink and a place to sit. Drinks are expensive, $20 each.
We got a nice table for 2 in the exceptionally sound-proofed dining room. Plainly lots of people around us, but you only heard the occasional snippet. A very pleasant way to enjoy a meal. We got fois gras and spaghetti with king grab as first courses, both excellent. Veal Milanese and Saltimbocca for our main courses. The Milanese is spectacular. It is presented as a huge rib with a modestly flattened cutlet and a crunchy breading. Beautiful presentation and delicious. The Milanese was very tasty, but not nearly as intriguing. It looked very much like filet mignon, only veal. We had a lemon custard for dessert that was excellent. The Milanese and the lemon custard were at the suggestion of our waitress, who was friendly and available without being annoying or intrusive.
Aside from the price (we broke $300 for two) this is a wonderful experience.

I go to Sorellinas every year for my birthday. The menu options are perfect and the ambiance is just what I’m looking for - beautiful. Professional but fun waitstaff. Extensive wine list... both vegetarian and hearty meals... I love it here! Aside from having the tables a little close for those tables for 2 - this place is an absolute must go to if you’re planning on having a great dinner in the city - for any occasion!

My cod was under cooked and my friends 55 dollar spaghetti was just noodles, butter and few loose pieces of alaskan crab.
The desert was packaged type out the box. 👎

We had Tarso as our server and he was fabulous! He was kind, informative and made our experience a great success. We were there celebrating my daughter's birthday and the night was perfect, from beginning to end. The food was really an event. We were very happy with the evening and are hoping to find more reasons to celebrate at Sorellina's!

Always a joy! But on this occasion the gnocchi was a major soggy disappointment!!! We asked if it could be remade and our server checked and came back and stated “the chef said this is how it is!” The consistency was not good.... This made for a less than pleasurable experience.

Had visited Mistral a couple of times in the past and always heard that the Mediterranean Italian experience was well worth the visit to the sister restaurant. I found our first two dishes to be fantastic, but our entrees lacked comparatively. The foie gras dish we started with was fantastic. The Potato Gnocchi with Lobster and butter sauce was the best thing we ate all night, but then the meatballs that every speaks so highly of were just okay. For entrees my date had the scallop dish which was underwhelming for her and I had a disappointing rib eye steak with the sides of mushrooms, carrots, and whipped potatoes separated for some unknown reason. It took away from the dish feeling cohesive.

Perhaps we ordered the wrong dish, pasta, really a sorry excuse for delicious pasta. Prefer other Italian restaurants. Mistral was always our favorite, should have returned.

The food was good. I think the other person's veal chop was a little well done.
Is a little noisy. Where we sat it was cold, because would get the breeze every time the door opened. Would suggest some kind of curtain or other barrier.
Waite staff was very good. Overall ambiance is nice.

Why do they not provide enough light to read the menu? I am so tired of going to restaurants that are so poorly lit, and this is one reason I will not return to Sorellina.
The semi-freddo was an unpleasant experience: not cold enough and a rubbery texture. Totally unappetizing.
The polenta with parmigiano was very good, du to the quality of the cheese.

Before seeing "Breath and Imagination" at the Lyric (which was wonderful) we had an early dinner and were more than pleased. To start, there were many choices for both of us who have different tastes. Then there was a varied cocktail and wine list. The service was heartwarming. We asked him to make choices for us and he got them right. The food was delightful. We have been before and enjoyed ourselves. It has now taken its place in our most favored Boston restauraants. OK, here is our list. Island Creek, Dueax Ave, Eastern Standard, Mistral, Oceanaires, Acquitaine. Our standarrds - I would go any night for any reason to eat well and be treated like I was welcome.
