We went on a Monday night and sat outdoors. Service was a little sluggish. I think the waitress was new and inexperienced. We both ordered salad and chicken parmigiana as that's how we judge our Italian restaurants. The food was very good but $28 is expensive for that dish. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and were glad for outdoor seating.

We went for a birthday dinner with 6 people, service was fast and food was delicious. Our waiter was great. They were busy but it did not keep them from providing great service.

Our reservation was honored and we were seated quickly as scheduled.

The food taste great and our server was very responsive.

The restaurant was busy but we were seated in a more quite location.

Food was pricey, but worth it.

The speed of both service and food was disappointing. We were one of a handful of tables in the restaurant and our waitress, while very friendly, only checked on us once and we had to flag her down for more bread and drink refills. After ordering dessert, we waiting 30 minutes for the cannoli to come to the table. It was a very disappointing experience. It seems all of Kalahari’s restaurants have speed & service issues.

Way overpriced. There’s now way our meal should have cost 130$ for two kids meals and three adult meals.

The food was bland, the chicken was the same chicken used throughout the resort. The chicken fettuccine and chick a chick a needed lots of salt and pepper to be edible. Olive garden is definitely better. The server was not good at his time management skills. He was all over the placed. Kept forgetting things and going back. The food was definitely not worth the $100 bill for 2 adults and 2 kids.

Had reservations for 7:45 pm. Didn’t receive our food till well after 9:00 pm. We were served water and never asked if we would have liked anything else to drink. The food portions were not what I expected especially for the prices. Most of our group left hungry.

After reading some of the negative online reviews about Sortino's, we were skeptical but someone gave us a gift card. We were surprised to find that none of the issues mentioned happened to us. I got the highly recommended lasagna and it was pretty darn good. The wifey got a specialty pizza and it was also quite tasty. Topped it off with some wine and sangria and we had a pretty good meal. The service was great and the ambiance was awesome! Would definitely visit them again!

I attempted to not review food since my family and I left because after sitting for 40 minutes I had to ask the waitress to check on the food only for her to tell me she apologized because she did not put the order in. Even worse the waitress passed us several times, front hostesses passed and what I would assume were managers passed by as well, looked directly at the table we were sitting at and didn't ask if we were being helped or anything. Oh yes and the front hostesses were playing with themselves and act as if they were giggling around a pool rather then assist diners....get rid of this place and put a real Italian restaurant in its place!

We had reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes. It seems every restaurant in hotel complex was understaffed. The fact this was an issue during spring break week was bad

Food was average. Ordered a pizza and had to send it back because half the pizza had no cheese on it. It’s not the same as pizza shop next door .. which was excellent. But it was good with fresh ingredients when we finally got it. Pasta dish was good and good portion

Server was overwhelmed and dinner took about 2 hours for 4 people. Salad, pizza and pasta should not take this long.

In general, food service in resort is untrained and slow. Kitchen must be understaffed as well as it take a long time no matter where you go

Food at this restaurant was just average

Amazing scratch made Italian. It was good we ate there twice in three days!!! The lasagna is phenomenal. We had the lasagnas, chicken parmesan, spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, three cheese ravioli, Cesar salad, calamari, meat and cheese board and it was all delicious. The staff was so friendly and the service was fast. Dora is so sweet and our server Ryan was great!!!

Sortion's was fantastic. The food was delish and fresh. The only complaint I have was that the food took a long time to come out. My kids being 8 and 3 years old were inpatient as they had a long day and really hungry. The service was great. I would dine here again.

The food was great. Recommend the stuffed shells. The initial service was slow. They’re still working out how to deal with “larger” crowds around spring break, etc.

The shrimp scampi was one of the best I ever tasted! Generous portions on all the plates we ordered. Service was friendly and staff was very accommodating to our family which included small children. We were guests at the Kalahari so it was very convenient for us to eat there but pricing was a bit high so I recommend this for special occasions or a date night.

First, the greater did not give us napkins with utensils when she seated us. Second, our wait staff was very unsure of herself and had to be told thing twice. The Food was not worth the money. Portions where small for the price you paid. Lastly, the pasta was under cooked in the stuffed pasta shell dish we ordered. We told this to our waitress and all she said was I am sorry, and did not offer a replacement. Very disappointing for what you expect at a resort at those prices.

For the price we paid, we expected great food. What we received was below Olive Garden in quality. The pizza was soggy and lacked flavor and other food was just strange.. They served my daughter spaghetti without sauce, what?
