Buffalo (WKBW) The annual Sorrento Cheese Italian Heritage Festival has hit the Queen City, bringing with it everything that Italy has to offer.

From an inflatable Tower of Pisa to a full size gondola, and from pizza and meatballs to fried dough and canolis, Hertel Avenue in North Buffalo is the place to be.

Channel Seven's Jason Gruenauer explored the festival to find out what makes it so special, and what makes people come back each and every year (Here's a hint: it's the food).
