Impressed. – Villa Sorriso is a very nice restaurant. The service was great, The food was delicious.
One of my favorite places for happy hour – I am a fan of the food as well, but they have been offering some great happy hour specials recently as well as the 1/2 off wine, which I'm also a big fan of.
Background Check for Desserts? – Have you heard of a restaurant ask for your driver's license upon providing a credit card for you bill? Well this place does that quite well. Had I carried enough cash I would not have entered into a long and tasteless argument with the so-called manager. Of course, you'll be asked for desserts, before they float your card in the restaurant for 5 minutes for a background check. I'd say run to place a freeze on your credit card. What a waste!
Villa Sorriso Friday Nights – In the heart of popular Old Pasadena, a national historic district renowned for its elegantly preserved architecture, Villa Sorriso is a long-time Pasadena favorite. On Friday nights there are Spanish rock bands performing live as well as a DJ spinning the best in hip hop, Spanish rock, salsa, merenge and trance. Great atmosphere some of the hottest people out on a Friday night in old town are at Villa Sorriso.

LOTS OF FUN! – I REALLY DO LOVE THIS PLACE. IT IS SO NICE INSIDE AND THE COURTYARD IS BEAUTIFUL AT NIGHT. THE FOOD IS GOOD, THE SERVICE IS GOOD, AND I LOVE THEIR MARTINI LIST. YUMMY!! FRIDAY NIGHTS ARE ALOT OF FUN...THEY HAVE A DJ AND DANCING. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO EVERYONE AND I WILL GO BACK AGAIN SOON.
DISASTER – It was my 28th brithday celebration with my girlfriend. Besides the disgusting food and drinks the service/employees are awful! The waiter avoided us the entire time and never brought our orders in a timely manner. When we brought it to the attention of the manager he told us they were busy and not to bother him. Fed up my girlfriend went to the bar to order the drinks. The bartender completely ignored her and when she asked for help he shouted and called her the b*@$% word. He then proceeded to make racial comments and that she did not belong in a place like this. I am shocked that this sort of ignorance and rudeness can happen in Pasadena.
APALLED! – I recently visited the restaurant and it?s the most horrible experience in my life. Although we had reservation both the table and food was an incredibly long wait. In addition they sat us in a completely different section than we had been promised to have when I made the reservations. They continued to forget our drinks and everytime we reminded the staff they gave us a malicious response. Our waiter was more concerned with gossiping with his colleagues than assist our table. Towards the end of evening as it was getting chilly I asked the manager to turn on the heating lamp because the busboy turned it off while he was cleaning our table. He cruely refused, began snapping his fingers and basically became violent with his foul language and demeanor. In an error in judgement, we decided to stay for the birthday girl. Since the restaurant turns into a club the staff began removing our chairs from the table before we finished our desserts and drinks. This is ultimately the worse experience ever!
Bad Service – Waiter was super rude. Waiter was giving us a time limit to finish our dinner. Waiter also threw a pen at one of our persons in our group so she can sign her check. Food was not that good. Would not go back ever
Worst Restaurant! – This is the worst Restaurant I have ever been to. The food was not too bad, but the service needs A LOT of improvement. The waiter was rude, he did not bring what was asked, and he kept pushing us to hurry and leave. It was impossible to eat comfortably this way. Not only was our waiter bad-mannered, but the manager was just as bad. NOT worth the TIME, and NOT worth the MONEY. I was expecting more from this place, but soon realized it is nothing what the website claims or what it seems like. I will not ever be dinning at this place. And I would recommend that you don't waste your time going to a bad restaurant like this.
Horrendous Service! – I opted to celebrate my birthday with my friends and family at Villa Sorriso due to the attractive menu options and the warm atmosphere. It was my assumption that South Pasadena was abundant with upscale restaurants with immaculate food and service. To my surprise I was completely floored by the uncivil treatment that we received. I have never in my life been rushed throughout my entire dinner and asked to leave in the middle of dessert after rendering a large sum of capital. In addition, the cost for a pitcher of ICE, ?Margarita? that served 4 but the waiter claimed it served ?6? was $65.00! If paying the aforementioned dollar amount (twice) in exchange for alms was not enough, the staff and management failed to provide us with a lid to cover the left over cake, claiming that they did not have one! It?s a restaurant, foil would have sufficed! It was a completely degrading experience that I do not wish anyone to undergo. I am NEVER going back to VILLA SORRISO or to the City of Pasadena to avoid driving by that hellish restaurant.
