Sorrento's Pizzeria

Sorrento's Pizzeria has been serving Cincinnati for nearly 54 years, opening its doors on August 10, 1956 and is still family owned and operated. Kevin headed over to Norwood to pick us up a pepperoni pizza and a margherita pizza. Sorrento's turned out mediocre scores:
(1-5 scale, 1=worst, 5=best)

Appearance (overall): 3.00
Aroma (overall): 4.13
Taste (overall): 3.75
Crust - 4.00
Cheese - 3.33
Toppings - 3.67
Sauce - 3.58
Pepperoni Pizza (overall): 4.00
Specialty Pizza & Menu Options: 4.08
X-factor: 3.83

Kevin thought that everyone there was very friendly and that it was the kind of place you could go to a few times and become a regular. Unfortunately, the pizza wasn't too hot by the time we sat down to eat it, but once it warmed up a bit in the oven it was much better. Sorrento's pizza had a really thin crust, but it was good. I especially liked that the pepperoni was a little crispy. All Nik wrote in his comments section was "hallucinations," and when I asked him what that meant/why he wrote that last week, he couldn't remember and didn't have any idea why he would write that. Oh, and he drew the University of Cincinnati bearcat symbol. (I think Nik may have had one too many beers before dinner ;))

While maybe not the best pizza in town, it's still good and the atmosphere of the restaurant more than makes up for it.

  1. We held our reunion there and the buffet was wonderful, the service superb. Have been back for dinner several times. Great to walk in, grab a booth and it is quiet enough to talk, you aren't rushed and they have a full bar. Great local place. And the pizza was good.
