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.

Our waitress was very good and other wait staff stopped by our table to remove dirty dishes and refill drinks. The ambience was very nice. Our teen-age grandchildren liked the special service and got a kick out of the location of the sink outside of the bathroom.

Portions were extremely small for the prices. Mediocre Italian food at best. The place was very empty due to covid times. Service was good and staff very friendly.

Celebrated my son's 10th birthday. I was pleasantly surprised at how it went since the restaurant is located in a waterpark resort/hotel. The atmosphere was great, the server was friendly as well as knowledgable, and the food was delicious. They also sang Happy Birthday to my son and served him with cannoli with a candle. I would definitely go back, and not just when I go to the waterpark resort/hotel.

We were offered water but not any other beverages. My order was correct but my grandson got pizza instead of the entree he ordered. The manager came to the table and said any dessert was on them. The waiter knew it was my grand son's birthday. The little girl at the table next to us got her cannolis and everyone sang happy Birthday. The waiter brought his in a to go box and gave us our check. How disappointing!

4 adults and 2 teen boys for dinner. Food was good but parmigiana dishes a bit to bread covered. Mozzarella was excellent, stuffed mushrooms excellent and both fairly priced. Server was excellent, spaced out courses, checked to make sure all was correctly delivered and asked if anything else was needed. This restaurant is conducive to families and comfortable.

We always go here when we stay at Kalahari. The food is always good. The family restroom wasn’t cleaned and I thought that was weird especially since we got there when they opened. They did surprise my son for his birthday and gave him a cannoli. He loved it.

The hosts (Don and another man whose name I can't recall) were VERY patient and accommodating for our group of 28 Girl Scouts/moms. Our waitress (Alicia) and waiter (whose name I cannot recall either) were excellent and patient with us as well, considering there was a very large number of kids . The food was great! We all had a wonderful time!

We can’t here for our daughters bday. From the hostess to the servers, everyone was great. The food itself left something to be desired. I expect to pay a lot at a resort but the calamari was so salty, wings had no taste, my kids wouldn’t touch the meatball, clams were ok, caprese salad tomatoes were mostly green. Cannoli was great. Prices were normal and service was great so just improve food. Not better options though.

As a frequent Kalahari traveler I was SO excited to try this restaurant out. We typically visit double cut on our visits but this time we decided to give it a try. The food was horribly disappointing. My husband ordered the chicken parm and it was burnt and tasteless. I ordered the linguine with white clam sauce it was completely tasteless. After about 2 hours of eating I was extremely sick. I lost the entire last day of our trip stuck in our room getting sick. I will never return and not reccomend at all!

Had the Bolognese, my only comment would be a little more sauce on it & the pasta a little thinner rather than sooo wide.
Wait staff was awesome & friendly

This place was the best part of our stay. The entire resort was packed and too much to handle. Sortino's offered good food, good service and a place to escape the madness. The fried calamari, pizzas and seafood fradiavlo were all excellent.

As an Italian American first generation and coming from NY, I would avoid this restaurant indefinitely. The house red wine tasted like straight up vinegar and it had to be returned. The pizza crust was gummy and lacked flavor. The salad with Gorgonzola had no Visible Gorgonzola or flavor. The actual sauce and mozzarella on the pizza wasn’t bad and fried calamari although a touch chewy were pretty good. The bread they gave the table seemed like it was days old. This place wouldn’t survive a few weeks in New York City.

Large portions for each individual entree. Large choices in appetizers, prices are moderated, go with the pizza your way if you want less expensive. All good food, we left full with left overs to heat for lunch the next day.

Tok my wife and 3 kids for a birthday and food was very good and michael server/ bartender couldn’t have been nicer. Don’t listen to other reviews from people saying it’s expensive. They must be used to I hop or Applebee’s
