The only thing thicker than blood is pizza sauce. Combine the two and you have a recipe for Sorrento's Pizzeria. Pizza has often been synonymous with one family in our city, the LaRosas, but the De Luca family has been spinning dough just as long.
Establishments like Cityside help keep our wallets lined, but they're also a much-needed alternative to some of the more homogenized cheap eats out there. The menu here is an interesting mix for a bar and grill.
Places like the Edgecliff Room fascinate me. Cincinnati doesn't have many of these animals — restaurants attached to a living space. These places seem like they would be most successful in densely populated urban areas like Chicago or New York.
