Caution, if you believe that "Olive Garden" is an Italian dining experience, or if you believe that "Denny's" is about the right price for dinner, or if you think the drive-thru window at McDonald's is about the right time to spend consuming a meal, I can almost guarantee you will not enjoy Sorrento.
But if you like being greeted and interacting with the owner and his employees, like well prepared and interesting dishes, enjoy fine wines and desserts, and wish to make dining a leisurely experience, then this is probably your best bet in Olympia. I used to say that Olympia had one excellent restaurant (Gardner's), but now believe that we have two.
The owner, Franco, is a charming man. If you happen to go early in the week, when the place is usually not very busy, chances are he will spend some time at your table, telling you about his childhood (Sorrento, Italy) and various escapades. The next time you return, he will likely recognize you. It's much like being invited into someone's home, a very personal experience.
