    Our first time dining here, the experience overall was great. The appetizers were amazing (sumac crusted sea scallops and burrata alla sono) then Margherita pizza & lobster gnocchi as our meals. The pizza was good, not great but good. The gnocchi was seriously amazing!!! However the lobster was watery and just so so….but the gnocchi….WOW!!! So good!!!

    Stopped there for family dinner. We had the chicken and we couldn’t finish it. I think they left too much brine on it. Pizza was ok, I expected more flavor. The scallops had a a great sauce on it and was by far, the best of what we tried.

    Had a great first experience and the food is really good! The host was charismatic and welcoming as soon as we walked in. Overall service was slow but super friendly server and it gave us time to chat and talk. I would point out that there is No table bread or extra parm offered. I absolutely think the restaurant should offer extra shaved parm (any Italian restaurant should) and that for the price point and menu it should include a table bread! For an appetizer, we went with the lamb & wild boar meatball ($14.00). Just right for two to share. For dinner we had the cavatelli ($19.00) and the ravioli ($24.00). It was good food and I would absolutely recommend the place.

    Both of the appetizers and the pizza were lukewarm at best. The pizza was returned to the kitchen to be heated up and it still came back to the table warm to room temperature. Very disappointing experience.

    We had reservations and were seated promptly only to wait over 10 minutes while servers walked past us through a semi busy restaurant. Nobody once offered to assist. Eventually my husband requested assistance from the manager who said she’d have our first round of drinks, an app, on her and her best server to us. Very generous! My husband ordered beer, I ordered a red sangaria which was by far one of the best I’ve ever had. We had to wait for water for a while and ask twice but that’s okay, we we quick to order a second round of beverages which came semi fast. We ordered burrata to start. It was very good! Entrees, I ordered sea bass and Brussels, my husband ordered pork belly and potatoes. My dish was about the right size perhaps on the small size but was very good. The Brussels were inedible with whatever sauce was put on them so I left them uneaten and expressed this to the server when she asked if I wanted a box for them. My husband said his pork belly was good and with good flavor but chewy and overcooked. Portion size was decent and his potatoes were good and they were plentiful. We did not opt for dessert. We seemed to have very slow service and when the bill came it Included the inedible Brussels and the app and drinks the manager had said we’re on her. The first round of drinks and app were quickly removed but it was an added step. Overall it was a wonderful ambience, the service was slow, and the food was good yet over priced. While good, not quite convinced it’s worth the extra dollar with so many other great places to get similar items…

    Restaurant has good food but very small small Portions and when I say small I mean small. You have to buy more and more food if you want to fill. We had a boar and I think goat meatball which was very good and flavorful. However it was one sm/medium meatball for an app for the table. I got the sea bass and she got the lobster gnocchi they were both very good however the portions were so small. I was given not even half the bass and with some spinach under the bass it wasn’t even 5oz. Now I’m not even a large guy with a big appetite but I was still so hungry. My date scarfed down her small portion of gnocchi and it was gone so fast we literally sat for maybe an hour and had drank wine ate a side dish and our entrees. “NO BREAD” you are an Italian restaurant and no complimentary bread!! Only way I’d come back is if I feel like I got the right portion for the $$ which it wasn’t expensive for a normal size but of course they weren’t. My 8yr would be still hungry.

    Came for Mother’s Day and it was very cute. I loved the atmosphere. Food is really overpriced for what it is. I could go to blaze pizza for the same thing and have all the toppings I want for way cheaper. Pizza was soggy. We ordered one of every dessert which were all very good. The s’mores for two was bomb

    This was our first visit to Sono… And while we thought the pizza was good and reasonably priced, we were disappointed in all the other entrées, sides and pricing overall. No one wanted to put this one back on their list for a return visit, but I will say it’s got nice atmosphere and our service was great.

    We had a very bad experience we were actually invited back by the owner/chef John because I had a piece of plastic in my food the prior visit. He said he would take care of us so we gave them a 2nd chance and it was one of the worst experiences I've ever had in a restaurant. My fish came raw in a pool of olive oil. I sent it back and came back without the olive oil but still raw. Then my dish never came back! We waited about 35 minutes total for my dish while my husband finished his meal. As we left to go John came running after us with fish on a plate. At the end of the day when you have a customer that gives you a second chance I would suggest you treat them special. If an error happens, put them to the head of the line, offer them a drink on the house, and bring them something while they wait like bread instead of telling them that it's $3 for the basket!

    I was really excited to see this place at Easton. We were greeted when we came in and our host was very gracious. It took a while for the server to get to our table. Even then, there was a mixup, and we waited a bit more for a new server. We ordered the mushroom ravioli. This was a very creative and nice tasting dish. However, it came in a bowl filled with so much oil that it over powered every bite. They should change it to a plate. We order two Marguerite pizzas. Everyone seems happy with them. The wine selection was good. We had a kids pasta that was bland. I needed to add that I had the bruschetta with the cherries and goat cheese. The cherries still had a crush piece of the pit in it. It hurt my tooth. Despite the shortcomings of the food, the ambience was nice. Overall, I would only go there if I had to. The food is not worth the cost. I think if they make some tweaks… Maybe have a Feedback session or do a soft opening with feedback session, they can start again and have more success.

    Got the lamb chops and the short ribs. Lamb chops were too tough and had next to no meat on them. Short ribs were ok but we’re not very flavorful and were really fatty. Overall dinner was just ok definitely won’t be getting those two meals again.

    The meals are very small portions and very pricey. We got the roast chicken, which was two pieces of chicken and it was $28.00. There were no sides that came with it. We got a dinner salad with chicken which was 22.00 and also very small. It was just expensive for small portions. The flavor was good.

    This is a cozy, bright space with large windowed garage doors and sidewalk seating. We had great service. The food portions were small and fancy but delicious. We had sea bass and lamb chop entrees. The scallop appetizer is amazing, but be aware that it only includes two scallops. My only criticism is that this restaurant is fairly expensive.

    Went out for a Valentines Dinner. Despite my understanding that this restaurant compared to others is more sophisticated, the portions were disappointingly small for the price point the dishes were; a $36 filet of sea bass a la carte that took less then 10 bites to eat? I was expecting the expensive prices to be worth a dish that would be filling. I ended up going to a fast food place after leaving to take care of that matter. Flavors of the food was exceptional and pleasing. Our waitress however couldn’t have made it more obvious that she was uninterested with her job; her tone was extremely monotone and lacked any hint of a positive mood. She was also quick to inquire to take appetizer plates away as I was actively still eating out of mine. I felt slightly uncomfortable with her personality, if that’s a good way to describe it. Overall, I would not personally come to Sono again, unless you have plenty to spend, their prices are not worth paying for.
