We ate here the night before running in the Cedar Point Run & Ride Half Marathon. Decided upon it after researching a few places online. The location was great, about a 5 minute drive from our hotel on the Cedar Point causeway. I had made reservations earlier that week, which was a good idea because it was packed (Saturday night)...

We enjoyed our meal at Sortino's. The restaurant is a fun place to visit; the menus and photos (and bathrooms) are neat to find tongue-in-cheek humor. The food was good and they were flexible in changing types of pasta (be prepared for an upcharge). Prices are moderate and the pace of the meal was good.

The buzzer at the front door was cool. The food was excellent and the service was awesome. The owner stopped by our table several times. Calamari was one of the best I've had outside Italy. Vongole and angel hair was top notch. Ladies room had a cool feature too...

Wow, these were big portions. We couldn't eat all of our food, though we sure wanted to. My only criticism is the meat sauce, which really didn't have much seasoning (a bit too bland). Great service, though, and a much better eating experience than any chain in the area, I'm sure.

George Sortino is a genial host with amazing culinary delights that surpasses all expectations. Having been to Itay and experienced some of the best food there George does not disappoint. For a real taste of Sicilian food, charm, and warm hospitality you must come here. I am going tonight and the Caponata is calling me.... Yummm. molto Grazie George!!!

Last night we went to our favorite restaurant again. We all had the Chicken Marsala special. It was excellent. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the sauce was not overpowering. I typically get the same meal whenever I go, (Carbonera) but glad I tried something different. Also, they have planted their garden and it is amazing. Looks like they will... More

We went again Saturday night and was not disappointed. They seemed more busy than usual but service was excellent. And they really have the best sauce around. Plus the Sortino red wine is very good. Also, it looks like they are doing something to their courtyard out front. There are several new patio tables and chairs and lights have been... More

You will get really fresh homemade pasta and sauces in this place. And their Perch is the best in town. Its a wonderful family run restaurant and a lot of the family still works there each night. Atmosphere is fun. Best to make reservations but if you have to wait they serve drinks and complimentary appetizers in the basement lounge.... More

Sortino's Little Italy Ristorante is owned & run by a hard working family. (Wait, that's Silicians! haha) It's very common to see the owners, George or James working the restaurant and making friendly conversation with the patrons. The food is GREAT! The portions are large and the food is consistently delicious and fresh. Original Italian cooking with quality ingredients. The... More
