“Family Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

We go here all the time. Best pizza in Omaha in my opinion. The cheese bread with romano cheese is so good but make sure you ask for fresh bread because otherwise they will take it out of a warmer. It is still good but the fresh is out of this world good. The pizza is a thinner to medium thickness, chewier crust. The sauce is really good, not sweet or spicy really. Usually lots of cheese and very high quality meat on the pizza. I like the atmosphere. It has a full bar. It is a hole-in-the-wall that lots of local families who have lived in Omaha for years frequent regularly. It is not fancy by any means. Prices are not cheap but not high either. It is unique but traditional pizza and not really comparable to any other pizza in Omaha. The service is usually pretty good. Sam, the hostess is a former student of mine and is really friendly! The girls at the register are nice too. You order at the counter and they call your number to go back up to the counter when your food is ready. Of the dozens and dozens of times I have been here, I have probably only had less than amazing food once or twice (too little cheese, slightly old bread). It is usually awesome and I highly recommend you try it and see if it is your type of pizza since we all have different taste in pizza.

“Good local pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Our 13-U baseball team ate here because of local recommendations. Very good pizza, made to order. Can handle large groups easily. I did not see a buffet. We did not make reservations and just walked in. I would definitely eat here again.

“My wife's favorite pizza place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

We like a pizza with a lot of toppings, cheese, and sauce and they deliver. They make pizza thick and hearty, similar to what Godfather's did when they first opened.

We usually get it to go as the restaurant is a bit loud for us, but if you like the sports bar atmosphere then it won't bother you.

We have been taking our children there forever!!! The Romona Cheese is the highest quality you can get here in the states. Can you tell I love Romona cheese?

“Nice place to take the family......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

We like going to Sortino's after baseball and football games as the seating area is large enough to fit everyone. The pizza is good and the onion rings and mostacholli with meatballs are tasty. Service is good and the eatery is always clean.
