The waitress said “F you” when I told her my daughter’s Ceaser salad was ordered without cheese and the kitchen put it on anyway. You should not be in tears when going for dinner with your family. It is not our fault that 2 people...More

Sortino's is located in a beautiful old stone building that was an orphanage in the early 1900's. The wait-staff are friendly, the food is consistently good. To those reviewers who found fault with the menu choices: It's Sandusky, Ohio, for crying out loud; you are...More

We chose Sortino’s based on the high ratings. But, we were very disappointed. It seems like I’m the black sheep among the reviewers, so I’ll try to keep my opinion out of it an just tell you what we experienced. First, the staff was wonderful....More

This restaurant gets five stars, not because it is the fanciest or finest restaurant in Sandusky, but it is damned good Italian food in an authentic speakeasy environment and with amazingly friendly and efficient service. And it's just plain ole fun to go there. The...More
