Once again....excellent food and service.

We arrived on a late Saturday afternoon just before the rush. Quick to be seated, served and well taken care of by everyone. It's nice to see the owner(s) working amongst the other staff. A personal touch. The meatballs are the best along with the red sauce. Ended the meal with great tiramisu.

This is the best Italian food!! My husband & I have been coming for years and have taken many people that have never been there before. We have tried many things on the menu and were never disappointed. Now most of the time we order one of the veal dishes because you don't find good veal very often. If it... More

I enjoyed dinner at Sortino's with colleagues while at attending a meeting. I found the place on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is in an old building and is fun.... lots of kitschy decor. The menu is expansive with all sorts of Italian fare. Our server was horribly slow. If I had been with my family, we would have left. However,... More

Love so many things about Sortino's that I am not sure where to start! Everything I have ever eaten has been outstanding!! I do love the chicken parm!!! The rosotto balls are amazing the perch is outstanding and I could go on and on. Never a bad meal and the staff always on top of what you need! The triples... More

A nice evening was had by all. This is not your average place... the history alone is worth the trip. The clams with white sauce was delicious and the house red wine was smooth. Ladies a surprise awaits you in the powder room... I say no more. I do want to know how to get a card to swipe in!... More

Last night (Thursday) my husband and I consulted Trip Advisor to locate a restaurant in Sandusky. Sortino's was #3 and we decided to give it a try!! This is the BEST Italian food I have ever eaten!! We started with an Eggplant Parmesan appetizer which was HUGE and very tasty. Nice thick slices of Eggplant, fried perfectly in a delicate... More

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
