This is still a bad restaurant, just not the same as when it had its original Italian ownership. Their location is probably the only thing positive left of this place.

My husband and I just ate at this restaurant recently, it was sophisticated and delicious Italian style food. We ate paninis which had a yummy green salad alongside. Both of us enjoyed ours, mine was a Cabrese panini with cheese and basil in it, my husband's was Sorriso special panini. After that we had a cup of coffee, and I... More

This used to be a very good Italian restaurant. After the Italian owner sold out, the restaurant has gone downhill. It's just really not any good anymore. Sad, this is what happens with new ownership that doesn't know Italian.

We were unsure of what to expect and we pleasantly delighted with this place... it is connected to a rather different club scene, but the sound did not disturb. Sorriso's decor has an old world charm, with friendly prompt service, the menu has a selection of both Spanish as well as Italian dishes. No corkage charge! Delicious meal and a... More

The only reason we went here is because the place next door did not have any available tables outside. We chose the prix-fixe (3 course) option, and could not be happier. The food was very good, the waiter was very professional and the price very reasonable. We will go back when in Pasadena.

My wife and I had a wonderful quiet dinner here during our last visit to Old Pasadena. I wanted something simple and light, and chose the Angel Hair Pomodoro, but with thin slices of sausage added. The spicy sausage made this a special dish without overwhelming the pomodoro sauce. Our meal was not inexpensive, but I think well worth the... More

We went for their 3 course special which runs 3-7:30, daily. It was $19.95 and absolutely worth it! Their food was to excellent and they were super friendly telling us where to go around LA! Loved it here definitely will come back!

My sister and I went here for dinner on my birthday and had the most amazing Grilled Wild King Salmon dish. It was my first time here, but it won't be my last. Had a really nice time and would definitely recommend it for a special occasion. Good variety of menu items to choose from. Special compliments to the chef.

We just happened upon the restaurant while searching for a place for a nice birthday dinner for our girls. We were so happy that we tried your restaurant! The service was top notch, the presentation was beautiful. We really enjoyed The Crooner, who could put his spin on any song. Thanks for making their 15th so memorable while we were... More
