This is a very special restaurant and bar. The architecture is old Sandusky with heavy stone work on the outside of the building. In fact until you get to what appears to be the rear of the building... it could be an old house or office building. But, thankfully, it is not. Inside takes you to Italy, to Europe, and... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's a cute little place on the inside. Servers were so happy and full of hospitality. We felt very welcomed here. The food and drinks were delicious. Do yourself a favor ladies and go to the bathroom and check out the painting on the wall.

Not sure when driving by or pulling in, but don't let the appearance fool you. Once you are around back and see the baci court, outdoor seating and raised beds for planting herbs, you know you're at an Italian club! The food is the best. Generous portions, authentic (not boxed or canned) and tastes great. The interior décor is awesome.... More

My father and I had been driving for hours and booked a hotel in Sandusky. To me, this meant assuring a fine yet generic dinner and some place like an Olive Garden or whatever. It was after 9p, the death knell for decent food, and options seemed limited. Thankfully Trip Advisor and Yelp pointed me to Sortino's. It was wonderful!... More

Well I would love to give this cool little place a 5 star rating however we never got seated - after a 2 hour wait! Therefore, I cannot tell you if the food was good or not! We arrived at 7:05 and walked out at 9:10 and never had dinner. :( The basement bar however was a nice waiting place... More

After a day at Cedar Point, we were starving. We walked along the Waterfront District of Sandusky hoping to find a place to eat. Some folks came up to us and asked if we knew where this new restaurant was. I told them I had seen the reviews, but had no idea where it was, because we are from Columbus.... More

Sortino's is one of our group's choices for birthday dinners. The Italian dishes are amazing, we all have our favorites, mine is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Their Lake Erie Perch is by far the best in Sandusky, lightly breaded so that the filets curl. You do not need a membership card to get in, just press the button at the... More
