Sciorra was born in Wethersfield, Connecticut to a veterinarian father and mother of Italian descent. At age eleven, her family moved to New York City, where as a teenager she began taking acting lessons. She attended South Shore High School in the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn. Sciorra formed The Brass Ring Theatre Company when she was 20 years old.

Sciorra first came to widespread attention in her co-lead role in Spike Lee's 1991 film, Jungle Fever. Other major films roles include The Hand That Rocks the Cradle and What Dreams May Come. She is also familiar to many viewers as Tony Soprano's mistress, Gloria Trillo, in the HBO series The Sopranos, for which she received an Emmy nomination.

Sciorra also made a guest appearance in the first episode of Law & Order: Trial by Jury. She later joined the cast of Law & Order: Criminal Intent as Det. Carolyn Barek, partner to Det. Mike Logan (played by Chris Noth). After one year, she was replaced by Julianne Nicholson as Det. Megan Wheeler, who played Christina Finn on the short-lived NBC legal drama Conviction.
