Not good. Really not good. Have you ever eaten somewhere where afterwords you need to eat something extra greasy or bad for you to get the taste of it out of your mouth? Such is the case with Sorrento's.
There were red flags. There were signs that it was going to be bad. First, the smell. It had that retirement home, funeral parlor, glade smell. Second, it was dark. Similar to a cave. It was still sunny outside but it looked like 10pm inside. Third, the decor. There is wood paneling everywhere. I recognized the same wood paneling that I grew up with: wood borders with pheasants inside. The decor fun did not stop there! The corner we sat in had a "clown theme". When is that ever a good thing? There were velvet clown paintings, clown figurines, etc. It was terrifying.
Not as terrifying as the food. Our server didn't bring us bread after requests, we ordered what I think was manicotti and it came out looking like it arrived from a can. The best way I can describe it is as a lipstick. If you imagine a manicotti and when you turn it the cheese comes out the top like lipstick? Appetizing, right?
The cheese tasted like paste and the sauce tasted like it had never seen the top of a stove. It tasted very "green". I brought my "leftovers" home to my husband a huge fan of Italian foods, he wouldn't eat it.
Another weird, creepy aspect is that it's a piano bar. Kind of. They have a piano, why you can eat dinner on top if it in fact. And they have a bar. I wouldn't so much call it a piano bar.
I am not sure who this restaurant really pleases. But every time I drive by it (several times a week) I just cringe.
