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 server was very nice and polite but everything else was mediocre from the host to the ambiance and the food was very bland. The bread that they start with does not taste fresh. What a bad way to start. My husband ordered the sea bass he hated it as it was extremely salty and overly decorated with black pepper. I ordered the pasta diavolo. It was very basic. Tasted like something anyone could make nothing special to it and kids Mac and cheese. Kids seem to like that. That was the only plus. I would never go back.

    Came to this restaurant with my family, and first thing I noticed was the bread they bring to the table was only 3 pcs and we were 6. Second, the food portions were very small. Third, not a lot of variety options on the menu. Overall the service was good, clean restaurant, and punctual.

    The restaurant vibe and decor is very cool and was promising for a good meal. However, the food and service fell short. We were very rushed to place our order and then waited almost an hour for very basic seafood dishes. When the food arrived it seemed as though it had been sitting for awhile.

    Some items less than hot when brought to table. Some dishes good, but seafood pasta with garlic sauce lacked any hint of garlic. Overall mediocre - should be spectacular for the price%

    We had a very nice evening. The service by our young service was friendly, sincere and absolutely fantastic. When we received the bill, we assumed that the service was automatically added as we were a party of eight. All the other restaurants that we visited did this and we thought it was a local custom. Poor girl, when she took our credit cards and cash, she saw no service amount !!! The manager came to see us to ask if we were unhappy about something our young server did... and we understood the misunderstanding. We told him that we were absolutely charmed by her and immediately each one of us gave her a 20% gratuity. Food was great, the wine list was small but they had good wines. The service is what we will mostly remember.

    Great place and great food!! Every single time I come to Kalahari I had to go have dinner here! My husband and I love it! And it also kids friendly. Desert was not good though. Tiramisu was dry. But our server was so nice. You won’t be disappointed. The plates and big portions and the bread is nice and fresh! Also the sangria was AMAZING! I was surprised.

    We stayed at Kalahari and had dinner at Sortino’s. The prices were a bit high but as expected for a resort. The decor was nice and the food was good and large portioned. The best part was our server Justin. He was so friendly and went above in beyond in asking our preferences and making sure we were happy and taken care of.

    We always make a reservation to have dinner at Sortino’s when our family stays at Kalahari. On this visit we had six family members enjoy dinners consisting of steak, pasta, chicken, and a few other dishes. The food was excellent as always. What made our dining experience even better was our server, Alexandra. She was polite, professional, and very attentive to our needs. We were so impressed with Alexandra that we will specifically ask for her when we return! Kevin Crane Glenolden, PA

    We visited Sortino's on a quiet Tuesday evening, which is why we were surprised at how slow service went. I don't think our waiter had more than two or three tables, but we consistently felt the service was slow, from drinks all the way through obtaining the bill. That would be forgivable, but the food was spotty at best. The calamari appetizer and the antipasti salad were perfect. All the pasta was over-cooked and the marinara sauce had the consistency of tomato paste. My wife ordered the Chicka-Chicka-Boom-Boom which promised pasta purses (Baci), but instead came with tortalini (which she hates). The deserts were OK, but small for the high price. Between the mediocre food, slow service, and the high prices, we won't bother eating where again.

    We went for our anniversary dinner. As this was our first time my expectations were something similar to Olive Garden but this place exceeded my expectations and for the quality of food the price is not bad at all. Also if you love coffee you will love the espresso martini.

    We had a party of eight. Food was delicious and they give you big portions. Service was slow we were there for three hours. Which took away from other things we could’ve been doing at the resort. Our gelato desserts sat on the counter for a while and we’re melting before they were finally served to us. We noticed on one at the counter that a paper receipt fell on top of the gelato and the waiter just picked it up but didn’t replace the gelato. When it was brought over to us, we asked our waitress to replace it, which she did gladly.

    We went with my sister and her family nephew for a belated bday celebration. Food and drinks were good. My nephew is shy so we didn’t make a big deal about it but the server was so nice and gave him a cannoli and candle without the big song by the staff which my nephew appreciated. Will definitely go back our next trip to Kalahari.

    We had 4 children with us. We were not initially given kids menus. We had to ask. The server seemed overwhelmed. I ordered veal Parmesan which was overdone and dry. The sauce was somewhat spicy. The kid’s spaghetti was also spicy. They didn’t eat it. Our server never came back to check on us. After quite awhile, another server brought us our check.
