Simply Italian Since 1966

For more than half a century, Sorrento Importing has been feeding families across Fairfield county. After a fire destroyed its home of more than 50 years on the corner of Capital Avenue and Main Street in Bridgeport, Sorrento relocated to Fairfield in 2018. While our address may have changed, our commitment to providing the most authentic Italian and Italian-American culinary treats for you and your family has remained.

Whether it is our stuffed porchetta, chicken pinwheels and sausage made fresh daily on-premise or our one-of-a-kind made-to-order Sorrento sandwich, we pride ourselves on quality and service. Operated by Giuseppe and Gaetano Milazzo since its opening in 1966 a few years after they emigrated from Sicily, Sorrento is honored to have been a part of your holidays, special occasions and weekly suppers for three generations and counting. We look forward to serving you again soon.
