The Sortino Brothers have been bringing authentic Sicilian cooking to the small town of Sandusky, Ohio since their father, Michele Sortino, first emigrated here from Modica, Sicily in 1952. Their family ristorante, Sortino's Little Italy, has become a local favorite serving up dishes using recipes passed down from generation to generation. The family's original restaurant is located in a historic building that once housed an orphanage and has now been transformed into a Sicilian tratoria for you to enjoy.

Sortino's Little Italy Ristorante welcomes you to view photos of our beautiful establishment, our delicious food and our wonderful friends and family. While we hope you get a sense of the friendly atmosphere, nothing beats stopping by and experiencing it for yourself!


"A meal without vino is like a day without sunshine."
--Michele "Papa" Sortino

Giorgio & Giacomo Sortino returned to their roots in Sicily to hand pick the grapes that make "Papa Sortino's" favorite wine. The vineyards of Baglio Orestiadi in Gibellina, Sicilia had the perfect juice from the old country. We trust you will enjoy this taste of our homeland! This is the wine enjoyed for generations at our family Ristorante. Salute e cent'anni!
