OK, I am in a real quandary. I think three and a half stars is more appropriate, only because I found the place and the food just so average. The staff was nice, though at times it seemed we were in a corner even though we were in the middle of the place. The food was good. We had a... More

The restaurant is laid back and food is great. The calamari was the best I've ever had. The service was outstanding. If yore dining in a private area for parties be forewarned there's no elevator and lots of stairs. We were there for a graduation party.

Don't expect to carry on an intimate conversation especially if your partner is hard of hearing. But that is the only negative there is about this wonderful restaurant. The hospitality at the front desk, the service, and, most of all, the food combine perfectly for an outstanding dining experience. It's long been my first choice for special occasions.

In town for business and my local contact recommended La Sorella for dinner. They hit a home run with our group. Our dinner was served family style with a nice selection of several favorites and everything we had was outstanding. Some of the best Italian food I've ever had. Along with the delicious food, the service was fantastic. All the... More

Had the 3-course lunch and everything was excellent. Started with the great bread and dipping oil, then the bruschetta and creamy chicken soup. My second course was the salad with scallops and grilled shrimp. Dessert was tiramisu that was fabulous. All of this was only $16 and I took home half of the salad it was so huge.

Stopped here for lunch with a friend. We both had ciabatta sandwiches - me the Caprese and my friend, the salmon. HUGE sandwiches. With a large salad on the side. We both loved the sandwiches. Waiter was extremely attentive. Wonderful vibe to the place, easy to find. Parking is always a bit of challenge in downtown Naperville, so plan to... More

Food was great...but service was so slow I thought it was coming from FRANCE. Asked for an Ice tea...at the beginning of my meal it came near the end. Everyone at our table who ordered alcohol got theirs...Hmmm...Chicken and salmon were both very good. If you go don't sit near or under the AC...

Beautiful restaurant and superb service. With constant influx of new dining spots in downtown, La Sorella has been an established hit for 25 years. Food was excellent, and many unique Italian offerings. Nice selection of daily specials. Perfect spot for a quiet dinner and relaxed dining experience.

The restaurant is located in a beautiful building in their downtown district My friend ordered the ceaser salad and said it was just o.k.but we enjoyed our main course-a chicken alfredo dish.
