Foie gras lovers, rejoice! The foie gras served at Sorellina is so deliciously amazing that it makes my taste buds excited just thinking about it.
That being said, the rest of the experience is also top-notch, lovely and enjoyable. We've been to L'Andana and had a more than impressive experience, which belongs to the same restaurant group as Sorellina and decided to give this other extremely sought-after Italian fine dining a try a few days prior to Christmas.
The atmosphere of the place is no doubt elegant and tranquil, down to every little detail - including the decorative plate on the table (prior to eating) which is exquisitely beautiful. We ordered two appetizers - the polpo, which is grilled octopus served with squid ink cous cous; and THE MOST amazing foie gras I've ever had. The grilled octopus is cut into small slices, chewy and tender, the cous cous is slightly on the saltier side. The foie gras is served whole on a piece of almond torta, one bite of the foie gras and I was in heaven, there is nothing that can compare to how tender and juicy the piece of foie gras is, the flavor is perfect, warm and perfectly seasoned, the torta helps absorb some of the oil from cooking of the foie gras which added to the flavor of the torta itself. Eating the two together blends the salty flavor of the foie gras with the sweet flavor of the torta.
For main dishes, we ordered the veal with truffle potatoes and lamb neck bolognese with penne. The veal is perfectly sliced into three pieces, pink in the center wrapped in prosciutto with truffles in the middle and sauce on the bottom. Tender goodness beyond description. The sauce is warm and soft, not too heavy or greasy, a light dip in the sauce is enough to bring out all the flavor of the veal. I wasn't so impressed with the bolognese dish, although the lamb meat itself is superb and melts in mouth and at the same time preserving the texture. The sauce is a little too salty once you have a few bites.
Overall, very very impressive quality, service and atmosphere. This is what fine dining is all about. Will definitely be back, especially for the foie gras.Recommended for:

A magical dining room with impeccable service. The pasta is always cooked al dente. Some think the sauce is too heavy on the cream and butter, but I say why not indulge once is a while. They are most known for their meatballs, but I come for dessert. The Ciambella (italian doughnuts) are perfectly crisp exterior and a soft and light pillow of deliciousness on the inside. Bravo, Sorellina!
