Sortino's Little Italy Ristorante is owned & run by a hard working family. (Wait, that's Silicians! haha) It's very common to see the owners, George or James working the restaurant and making friendly conversation with the patrons. The food is GREAT! The portions are large and the food is consistently delicious and fresh. Original Italian cooking with quality ingredients. The restaurant is very accommodating if it's a table for 2 or 22. When my adult kids are here from out-of-town, they ALWAYS want to go to dinner there.

Without a doubt one of the best things we did on our vacation was have a dinner at Sortino's.
The owners know what they are doing. The atmosphere is great for either romantic or fun dinners. The food, ok the food is really really good. This really is one of those places that you have to go and experience for your self.

Have been to Sortino's half a dozen times over the past year. Each time has been excellent. We now make it a point to take visiting friends and relatives there. Never have had a bad meal. From soups and salads to pasta, steaks, and seafood, all has been great. We especially appreciate that the owner is almost always there, circulates thru the room, get constant and immediate feedback, and is willing to discuss the history/evolution of each dish. Combine the casual setting with the excellent food and friendly service and you end up with our favorite restaurant in Sandusky.

Nowhere else in the United States will you find true Sicilian cooking like at Sortino's. From the antipastos to the main courses, all were expertly cooked and served. Only the freshest ingredients are used in their cooking and wow can you taste the difference! Service is excellent, the staff is friendly and courteous. Only true Sicilians can cook like this. From one Sicilian to another BRAVO Sortino's!!!

Quirky is a good description of the overall atmosphere...very speakeasy-ish :) including the entry.
Was a wonderful way to wind down the day (after work-headed up to Cedar Point for a Sunday Halloweekend visit-a GREAT Saturday evening meal). Ask for the recommendations from the staff- you'll be pleasantly surprised. Rita is a gem. Recommended.
