I love dining at Sorriso – it’s my go to restaurant in Cleveland park where I live. The Italian dishes are excellent but what really sets this eatery apart is the convivial atmosphere at this warm and friendly, northern Italian, family run restaurant.
As soon as you enter the door, you will be welcomed by either Pietro (the owner), his wife Rosemary, his daughter Isabella or one of the friendly and service minded staff. Pietro is serious about making guests feel at home. From start to finish you will be made to feel special while dining in this restaurant.
Pietro and his son Stefano are the chefs. Both studied in Italy and its reflected in their cooking. All of the dishes I have tried thus far were excellent. Some standouts include:
- Spaghetti Carbonara (nice chunks of smokey Pancetta with eggs and parmiagano);
- Tagliatelle Con Ragu (pasta in a tomato sauce with boar meat); and,
- Costeletto Alla Milanese (lightly breaded chicken cutlet served with homemade tomato sauce)
As for the desserts, you can’t go wrong at Sorriso especially the gelatos. Stefano studied the art of gelato making in Italy. He makes a new batch almost daily. Try the Pistachio gelato. Heaven!
You won’t be disappointed at Sorriso. There is a reason who so many regulars dine at this restaurant. If you go, tell Pietro I sent you.
