Food Porn: Sorrentino’s Spaghetti House

We found our way to Sorrentino’s Spaghetti House in a long, round about way.  Along with a friend (Sara), Alli and myself were honestly trying to find a healthy meal last Friday night.  We have this wedding “diet” going on and we are making an effort to find places that serve healhy, guilt free options.  But this particular restaurant we attempted to visit wasn’t open, in fact on the door they stated they were “temporarily closed”.  Seeing this as some type of sign we said “screw the diet” and decided to get some Pizza and Chicken Fingers (we have virtually no self-control), which we had been craving for quite some time.

We ended up at Sorrentino’s because we just happened to be passing it on our route and my coworker Sue had mentioned good things about them in the past.  While we didn’t order anything too crazy (I’ve been told the Chicken Finger pizza is very good) we ended up having a really great meal.  Check out how our trip went….

Sorrentino’s is located right onMain St. in Williamsville but honestly could be missed very easily as it has a pretty modest exterior that doesn’t really stand out.  Walking inside you’ll see a smaller bar followed by a large, open seating area with TV’s.  We’ve eaten at so many low key local restaurants that I think I could describe how it was going to look before I even stepped through the front door.  The metal tables, maybe the occasional wooden booths, vinyl tablecloths and paper place mats that sometimes have ads on them.  By the way, I’m not complaining about any of those things.  I absolutely love this type of atmosphere as often it’s home to some of the best food in Buffalo.

As part of our meal we ordered their Large Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza (pictured above).  The pizza was very cheese heavy with what tasted like a whole milk mozzarella with some added spices.  The slices had a airy and fluffy dough but somehow managed to have that crunch on the bottom.

We also decided to split an order of Chicken Fingers and a Large French Fry between the three of us (we really decided to go all out).  The fingers were pretty large and crispy (not a wet saucy mess) and considering we ordered them “medium” they had a decent amount of heat to them.  The Fries weren’t freshly cut but they were one of Alli’s favorites, Crinkle Cut.  We don’t see that too often at restaurants and these came out warm and crispy.

Our visit wasn’t mind blowing but it definitely wasn’t disappointing.  It was, however, very cheap.  Our entire meal was maybe 30 dollars and that included several drinks, specifically $2 Molson drafts!  As a beer drinker, I really enjoyed that offer and it wasn’t even a special, that is the regular price.  It should definitely be noted that they don’t have free refills and the service wasn’t horrible but it appeared that they were understaffed that night.  I think two waitresses were working the entire room and we had to wait a little bit to find ours to get the check. Williamsville, especially the stretch of Main that runs through the village, has a pretty good selection of restaurants to choose from, that said, I could definitely see myself stopping by this place again to grab a bite to eat and watch a Sabres game.

    I’m glad you reviewed this place. I found it a few years back and the value is outstanding. I can get a half-pitcher of Samuel Adams for the same price as a regular Sam Adams draft at most places. Also, they have very, very good chicken wings. You should try the wings, especially if you go on the wing special night.

    Also, if you use their Entertainment coupon, you can get 2 full Italian dinners including salad and bread for about 12 bucks. The Italian dinners aren’t Mulberry or Chef’s quality but they are quite good and offer more bang for the buck than any other Italian place around.

    The service can be a little inconsistent and sometimes it’s understaffed. I guess that’s how they are able to keep their prices down.
