I went there for dinner today and it was WAY better than the old Sorrentino's menu (which was complete crap). They have a famiglia style section that changes every couple days. My memory is a little fuzzy on this but I think Mon & tues is chicken and veal stew, Wed & thurs is cornish hen, Fri is Cioppino, and Sun & Sat is steak (rib-eye I think??). If I remember correctly, the famiglia style option also came with brushetta, pasta and salad. About $22 - $30 per person. Giuseppe was there tonight too, which was nice to see.

We opted for the regular menu. Started with the carmelized onions, smoked pork, and sour cream pizza, which was great. The crust was thin and crispy and the sour cream worked surprisingly well with the pork and onions. I had the chicken saltimbocca with gnocchi and brussels sprouts ($22). Chicken was moist and well cooked. Gnocchi and brussel sprouts were amazing. Dinner companions had tagliatelle with mushrooms and smoked pork ($14 i think) and fusilli in tomato sauce and chicken wings ($16, I think). Tagliatelle was great and all the pastas were cooked to al dente. Fusilli was good, but it looked like the chicken wings were weird to eat with the pasta. The pasta portion size was great too, we ended up packing some home because there was so much!

Service was mediocre, but I guess they can't fix everything! We were directed to our seats by a lady with very little clothes on. It was disturbing.

Anyways, I highly recommend checking this restaurant out now. It was wonderful to finally have a non-crappy meal at Sorrentino's!
