We arrived on a Friday night and place was packed. We were offered to wait downstairs where there was a bar and free snacks (cheese, olives, salads, bread). All good and appreciated. We had the excellent house red wine and bought a bottle to take home. All staff so friendly and welcoming. Dinner was terrific. Large portions. Dinner salad large,... More

My husband and I travelled to Northern Ohio to visit my in-laws and wanted to take them out to a nice dinner for their anniversary. The place had to have great food with a nice-casual atmosphere. I found Sortino's on... TripAdvisor, of course. WOW! Where to begin... 1) The owners greeted us at the door. They were welcoming, charming, and... More

Very good Italian food and large meatballs and ravioli! Everything on our table was good and the smell of the place was just awesome!

After just returning from Rome, Italy I never believed the true flavors would be found here in America. I couldn't believe I found this in my backyard. If you are looking for homemade pasta dishes that are authentic, look no farther. As you walk up the stairs to the restaurant you can see the garden surround the front, showing off... More

Was skeptical that we would find exceptional Italian food in Sandusky so I was pleasantly surprised by Sortino's. The staff was friendly and attentive, the food was fresh and plentiful. The gnocchi, chicken ravioli and the chicken with artichoke hearts were exceptional. The sauce was to me a good southern Italian red sauce with a little spice. The house salad... More

My kids loved the fact they had to ring the doorbell to get in.... hehe. The atmosphere was great - packed house! We waited 45 min. for a table but in the meantime went to the basement where there was a table of antipasti. It was tremendous with the house wine. My kids loved their food, loved meeting 'the man,... More

Chose this restaurant based on trip advisor's rating and there were no disappointments. Started with one of the best long islands I've ever tasted and went with the petite perch dinner that came with two sides and a basket of bread....for sides I went with the house salad and angel hair pasta with oil and garlic. Everything was high quality... More

I was very impressed with this restaurant. Good menu with a good selection. Great atmosphere. Its kind of neat that you have to enter through the back door and be "buzzed-in" to get into the restaurant. Made me feel I was going into a Mafia hangout! I have been there twice, and will go back the next time I'm in... More

What a great place to eat. Food was amazing! The Shrimp Alfredo was incredible! Easy to find. Only minutes from Cedar Point. A MUST try in Sandusky. Large portions and service was great.
