Reader Don tells me that a new Italian restaurant named Sorriso Italiano opened on July 15th at 901 Embarcadero del Mar in Isla Vista, near Giovannis. Here is a description of the eatery from their web site:
“It all started as a dream: exporting to California the real Italian cuisine in its simplicity and authenticity, sharing the discovery of real Italian flavors through an imaginary journey across Italy…from Liguria to Emilia Romagna, Campania to Apulia, and Calabria to Sicily. Every single day we use only selected high quality ingredients that are fresh, natural, organic and whole wheat. Mixing them carefully and adding our passion and love for delicious food, we create specialties that will inspire you. The opening of our first Sorriso Italiano is the starting point of a new adventure throughout Italy filled with fine flavors, aromas and …an Italian Smile!”
Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday and 10 am to midnight Thursday-Saturday. For more information call 324-4367 or visit sorriso-italiano.com.
