Sor Tino review (new restaurant in Brentwood) (longish)

Nicole | Sep 1, 2004 11:56 AM

Sor Tino openned about a month ago, on Barrington Ave., just South of San Vicente. Finally went there last night. Overall, our experience was okay, not great. My husband ordered the milanesa. It was a good cut of veal, breaded and cooked well, but nothing to write home about. It was covered in lettuce and tomato salad. It was a competent but boring dish. I had the pork chop stuffed with fontina cheese and spinach. This dish was good, but not great. The cut of meat was good, but I've had much better. It was huge--I was a little overwhelemed by the quantity of meat, and there was not enough cheese and spinach stuffing to complement it. It was served with an excellent sauce (not sure exactly what it was), which went well with the pork and the creamy mashed potatos that accompanied it. We didn't order appetizers or dessert. The service was adequate, but not great. For instance, there were specials written on the board, but our waiter didn't mention them, even though they were written in italian and needed description. I think our expectations were too high, because although nothing could be complained about, we left disappointed. Maybe we just didn't order the right things. We are going to give it another shot, since they had some pasta dishes on the menu that sounded great, and we live in the neighborhood. The meat entrees cost around $23, and the pasta is around $14 (approximately). For the quality, I don't think the meat we had was a good value.
