Sorriso - Short Review

Snarf | | Feb 12, 2008 01:03 PM

Tried Sorriso the other day, not knowing anything about the place, nor having read any reviews.

The menu is described as tapas style, and runs from 6$ to 20$ per dish. Great selection of dishes covering fresh seafood, game, more traditional Italian fare as well.

We tried the plate of grilled sausages, which were distinct, flavourful, and a good sized portion. The Porcini risotto was very good, perfect consistency with plenty of porcini. The star dish was the wild boar ragu served over polenta. Definitely a step up from the typical College street bistro.

Of particular note was the service. The owner was effusively friendly, and completely focussed on making sure the guests enjoyed themselves, comping the odd beverage and offering samples of the wines when asked about them. I'll be back.
