Great live piano music in nostalgic atmosphere was fun! Pianist happily played all requests! Recommend actually sitting at the 'piano bar' after dinner, if only for a few minutes. If you have any interest in this type of place, visit soon. Not many customers on a Saturday evening and very understaffed. Italian fare was mediocre - we shared lasagna, spaghetti & ravioli. Also, carefully inspect your bill at the end! Despite my mixed review, I still highly recommend a visit if you're interested in this type of place. They are few and far between, and I believe this place could be 'something' if the owners had a large enough customer base to invest more in it.

Sorrento's is very average pizza place. The service was good but only four couple were in the restaurant. The food was typical of any pizza place. The prices are very high for pizza and sandwiches.
We will not be returning to Sorrento's we have ordinary pizza on our side of town.

A good stop. Since 1956, they ought to know what they're doing and they do. Good NY style pizza. Facility was clean, service was prompt and professional, house salad and pizza were very good. Very pleased, a good stop. I'll be back.

We went to Sorrentos to get a pre-game pizza and a few drinks before the Xavier-Georgetown basketball game the other night. As we entered we were greeted by Terry aka Tony behind the bar and we took a liking to him at once. He suggested that we try a new version of Wiedemans Beer, which now is a craft beer far away from the days when one could purchase a six pack of it for 99 cents. It was ok but we settled on Moretti, an Italian beer very seldom found on tap. We said we wanted pizza that hopefully resembled NY pizza because I am very particular about pizza. I topld Tony that I have lived in Washington DC for over 40 years, and have yet to find anything close, and that I have never experienced a decent pizza in any part of Ohio. Tony assured me that Sorrentos uses the finest dough made daily by 95 year old matriarch, Momma Santina, who also prepares the sauce each day, and sausage that is bought elsewhere but is one that is unsurpassed by any other. Tony was right on all counts. We ordered the "Bob Huggins" Specialty Pizza" with that famous sausage, pepperoni, onions, and fresh mushrooms. We devoured it in no time and enjoyed engaging with Tony who told us so many interesting stories about his father in law, Willie De Luca, Pete Rose, former Xavier basketball coach, Pete Gillen, and Huggins. Being an avid sports fan, lover of authentic NY style pizza, good cold beer, and old stories I could have stayed there all night. Other members of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, as well.Although our time there was short lived because we had to get to the game, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute there. It is a no brainer on where we will go when we return to Cincy in May for our son's graduation from Xavier. In fact if I have anything to say on the matter we will be going to Sorrentos Pizzeria every night we're in town.

Sorrento's is one of the few places remaining where you are saying to yourself the next day "WHAT A GREAT MEAL. I FEEL GOOD!" It must be because the owners of this family restaurant still shop different stores until they find the quality they want. You can walk in and listen to the staff say things like "look at these tomatoes I bought today. " Wholesome fresh pizza... I can taste and feel it!
