After going to the play we (6) went to Sorellina for dinner. I made the only wrong choice of the night. Each of the other diners had a great meal and were very happy. The grilled squid was a favorite as was the short rib ravioli. The wait staff was excellent the service was spot on - But if you... More

Outstanding flavors, excellent presentation but left feeling cheated by the underwhelming portoins. Had the veal saltimbocca, tuna app, truffle fries-all excellent. Would consider north end next time for excellent taste and value

When we asked our waitress if there we're white truffles she replied that they would have none until the next day. A few minutes later she announced that the manager was going to another restaurant to get truffles for us. They were exceptional, grated over simple tagliatelle with butter and parmesan. The veal was also exceptional as was an appetizer... More

Walking in, on this night, the crowd was older, like us, however, most were dressed in Boston business attire and we were in full-on tourist attire, fear not, everyone is welcome. Immediately, my father came to mind, old world style, he would have been comfortable in. White cloth table linens, fine silver, polite waitstaff, dim lighting and lots of meat... More

You can always count on an enjoyable meal here... and at any of the groups restaurants for that matter. Commitment to high quality products and fine service is their calling card. Order whatever the pasta special is. The veal is also highly recommended. Wine pricing is too high.

The food here was very good, but not the best Italian I've had. The best part was definitely the atmosphere and the high class dining. I would go back.

Our evening at sorellina was really nice. It's a high end, classy restaurant with gorgeous interior. The food was delicious and the portions were very decent. We would recommend this to anyone who wants a special evening.

the food is good but not great. It is more immitation italian than genuine. Drinks are overpriced. All in all you are paying for the trendy ambiance not the food. If you are looking for high quality italian cuisine you will be disappointed.

Chose Sorellina after a long debate of whether to hoof it to the north end for pasta or stay closer to our hotel. So pleased with the choice. First of all, the restaurant is easily one of the most beautiful I've ever been in - all black walls and white tables and chairs, glass and lacquer. Despite that, we were... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
