Italian
Sortino's Italian Kitchen is a new age red sauce restaurant where old school Italian cuisine meets the modern age. Sortino’s Italian Kitchen is a casual restaurant and bar that brings to the Poconos a tradition of hospitality established by Giorgio and Giacomo Sortino more than 60 years ago when they opened the original Sortino’s Little Italy restaurant in Sandusky, Ohio.

Adding a new chapter to a rich culinary history, Sortino’s celebrates the family recipes and generous spirit of its Sicilian immigrant founders. This is the kind of neighborhood Italian joint that could open on your street tomorrow and would feel like it’s been there forever.

The tone is established by the framed family photos at the entrance, and reaffirmed by the maître ‘d’s warm welcome. The aroma of simmering sauces and fresh-baked breads stimulates the appetite, while the sight of bountiful homemade Italian specialties racing from the kitchen to the table catches the eye.

The staff was very nice and polite. The restaurant was very clean . They made my children’s dinner a special way they like it because they are very picky eaters. It was very easy to make a reservation. My family had a great overall experience. I would recommend to go there.

It’s a bit pricey for Italian but it’s tasty. Would be nice if there were some diet friendly choices on the menu.

Service was poor, took a while for waitress to come to the table and to make rounds back again. She had an attitude when I asked about something on the bill. They put the breakdown of bill at the bottom of about 6 receipts that you can easily miss them adding 20% gratuity, which I didn’t think my server deserved but there is no incentive for better service when they are guaranteed 20%.
Portions were very small for a 30 dollar plate of pasta, overall nothing impressive about the restaurant and wouldn’t go back if I should be there again.

Special dinner for our daughter turning 11. We ate here for her 10th birthday last year. We had an above and beyond service experience last year with multiple staff members that made us and especially our daughter feel very special. Our waitress this year was less attentive and there was no special attention for the birthday girl even though our reservation also mentioned the occasion.

Went out for a pre Valentine’s Day dinner. Was the only place in a decent radius of our hotel that had available reservations for after 8p. Was definitely pleased with the quality and taste of the food and house wine.
The dessert cookie/brownie I had was amazing as well.
Will definitely come back.

Had three dinners and an appetizer. Chicken Alfredo was the best of the three. Good sauce. Chicken and Veal Parm were good but could have been pounder down a bit more as the veal was a bit chewy. Red sauce was better than some restaurants as it wasn't overwhelming tomato taste. Garlic bread was thick cut, crunchy but not much taste to it. Prices were a little higher than anticipated as it is in the Kalihari resort where many families come to stay and play. Would be costly to bring in the kids to eat here.

Although the service was really good. The food was not so good. The focaccia bread was terrible, it was undercooked and didn’t have enough salt, absolutely no flavor. The spaghetti and meatballs had more sauce then actually spaghetti. The meatballs were way too seasoned. We ordered pizza and the dough had no flavor either.

Due to pandemic, portion sizes are extremely smaller, same price. Would like to recommend less sodium in food, food was overly salty.

The food was phenomenal! My fiancé and I ordered the 4 cheese Alfredo and eggplant Parmesan with pasta. The service was great, and the aura made the visit much more relaxing and welcoming! We definitely plan to visit again. Highly recommended!

The eggplant Parmigiano was terrible.
The glass of $14 wine was a joke.
Extremely overpriced with the exception of the children's meal.. good price for $10... my son stated the meatballs were way overcooked and hard.
Our waitress was more concerned with the customers celebrating birthdays.
Very disappointed

Very long wait times to receive condiments and food. Waitress never checked on us to see how we were doing or to see if we needed anything. Food mediocre. I had fettuccine Alfredo which was good, my son had over cooked chicken fingers with fries and my other son had chicken parmigiana which was good but his spaghetti was extremely bland and he could not eat. Apple juice was watered down. Food pricey as well. Sadly we will not be retuning.
