Come Back to Sorrento's

Looks like Sorrento's should be re-opening soon. Fingers crossed on this one. (A fire in April 2005 burned down the building and ultimately killed owner/founder Willie DeLuca.) I was only there once, but it's a good neighborhood spot. (And hey, it might be a good choice for where in Cincinnati to eat like the Sopranos!)

Will someone at this bastion of high journalism try to pretend that some of your readers may have come to Cincinnati AFTER April, 2005???

As one who loves independently/family owned establishments, I'm looking forward to patronizing this restaurant mentioned here in this blog, and in the linked article.

One question remains. WHERE IS IT???????

Driving all over Norwood looking for a restaurant isn't my idea of a great evening, so a little attention to detail would be appreciated.

Hey, guys,

I'm new-ish to town as well, so I did a quick search through our archives and found this address:

5143 Montgomery Rd
Norwood, OH 45212

Nice spot, on your way there find your way to Quatman Cafe. The nicest best price burger in the city.

The fire actually took the life of Willie's father, Enrico (who died several days after the fire). Willie died from a heart attack last October (read Paul Daugherty's column from Oct. 23 2006). Willie was bigger than liufe and was one of the real characters that made Cincinnati great. It will be wonderful to be able to sit down for a meal at Sorrento's again but it won't be the same...
