I guess so much has to do
I guess so much has to do with who is serving you. Our waitor, seemingly new, was impatient and not knowledgeable about the menu. When asked questions, he did not offer to find out... we had to ask him to do that. It got frustrating and not like the usual outstanding service.

There are many reasons I come
There are many reasons I come back to this restaurant and one is because they know me well by now and it feels kinda like home. They recently changed their menu and I've noticed that some of the portions are smaller. Tonight it was too noisy and we had to raise our voices to hear each other from across the table. That's not great. Our waiter, who is new and who we had once before, always seems impatient even though he puts on a good facade. We're hoping we don't get him again.

Filet of sole was excellent,
Filet of sole was excellent, as was my wife's cavatelli with sweet sausage and granddaughter's spaghetti bolognese. Pasta e fagioli was generous, but swimming in broth. Service was decent.

I live in the neighborhood,
I live in the neighborhood, and walked by this restaurant often before finally stopping in for dinner one evening. I'm sorry I waited so long! The food was delicious, the wine selection good and the wait staff friendly ... and it was clear that many in the dining room and at the bar were regulars. Don't miss this restaurant!

I looooved Sotto Cinque!
Definitely a "gem" though I don't live in the neighborhood I'm always more than happy to venture away from mine & I do have several friends who live on the UES, so I knew Sotto Cinque existed & wanted to patronize an UES establishment during "Second Ave. Retail & Resturant Week". Unfortunately we chose another major stormy night to do so--however we persevered. One friend didn't make it & we'd already ordered for him, so we brought him his dinner & though he re-heated it at home, he enjoyed his pasta!
I plan to return for their very well-priced, prixe-fixe brunch very soon--acclaimed "best brunch on the UES!"

A Good Choice for Father's Day
The servers were very helpful in accommodating our two grandsons, age 1 and 2. Our food was fresh and moderately priced.

What a night!
Sotto cinque is the perfect restaurant for a cozy date-night dinner or a family birthday dinner. From te moment we arrived we were greeted with a warm friendly hello and immediately seated (made reservations). The service was excellent an food was even better. Everything is extremely reasonably priced - even the wine list! Highly recommend.

Girls Night Out
I had another great experience at Sotto Cinque! I met two old friends for a Saturday night dinner and it was really nice to take our time and not be rushed through our experience like other restaurants do. The food was fantastic especially the pasta dishes and salads. The size of the dishes are more than fair and the prices are great for the quality. I highly recommend this restaurant and make a reservation because it is not that big of a space.

This cozy and charming Italian restaurant was exactly what I was hoping for. We were entertaining guests who don't love nearby so we wanted to bring them somewhere nice. The staff was friendly, from the hostess to the waitstaff. I couldn't have asked for anything better! The food was quite good and the ambiance... just perfect! I would definitely come here again.

We went off wheat so haven't
We went off wheat so haven't dined here in a few months. We returned tonight and the menu has changed and the portions are smaller. I was able to order something from their previous menu not listed on the current one. The food is good and the service friendly, as always. Prices on many items are higher too.

Surprise on UES
Chose Sotto Cinque using Open Table. It was a great experience. Most importantly, the food was well prepared and presented. The wine list included affordable options. The prices are fantastic. My only complaint was that the pasta served under my fish special of the evening dish was grossly under-cooked. All the other diners, however, were quite satisfied with their food. My dish, itself, was excellent. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

Love! Love! Love this place!
I went here with3 others. From the bread on, this place was a hit. We ordered a cold antipasto platter for 2 which was ample for the 4 of us. The portions are large and fresh. I ordered lasagna. It cost ONLY $12, well worth it. Delicious. My daughter had penne ala vodka, equally delicious. Her boyfriend had gnocchi and he was thrilled. My husband ordered chicken park, it came with a choice of pasta or salad. He opted for the salad. It was a large dinner salad with the most delicious lemon vinaigrette. His chicken park could have fed two people. The portions are large and really flavorful. They had daily specials, too.

We decided to go here for their special Turkey Day dinner and it was wonderful. I had beet and goat cheese salad, turkey (all white meat) with cinnamon sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts with walnuts and butter sauce, cranberry sauce and mushroom sausage stuffing which was all delcious. A drink, coffee and dessert were also included. We all had something different and everyone was totally satisfied with what they ordered. It was like being at home with family because staff was also so accommodating and generous. Food was so plentiful that there were leftovers to take home.
