"Is that Al Pacino over there?"

This place has lots of atmosphere and put me in mind of the restaurant in the Godfather where Michael Corleone shoots the police captain - small, friendly place where locals hang out. It is a little hard to find (hidden behind church and beside an empty motel) and you have to push the buzzer to get... read more

I am in Huron for a few days and wanted to go out for a fun evening with friends. Of course I went to Trip Advisor so that is how we chose Sortino's. I usually avoid Italian restaurants. I am gluten free because I feel better that way so I don't eat pasta and often Italian restaurants use so much... More

We are from Michigan and chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. So glad we did! The owner seated us and gave us a bit of history about how the business began. I thought that was a nice personal touch. The food was absolutely delicious!! The best I've ever had. The service was exceptional. I can't wait to go... More

We went to Sotinos one winter evening forgetting that Sandusky had a major program and so there were quite a few peole there. I thought it was wonderful they set up the basement bar with free appetizers and a great bartender ! After we got to our table as always the food was amazing and the service was good.

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

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
