Soto Soto review
We were back at one of our favorite places to eat. The food is outstanding and the service is first class all the way. We would go back anytime. It was a wonderful evening and wonderful food.

Sotto Sotto was the perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary this year. Romantic ambiance, outstanding food, elegant and knowledgable waiters who offered un-intrusive yet friendly service...we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you for making our evening a memorable one.

There's nothing better than homemade pasta, and Sotto Sotto proves it. There's not a dish on the menu you'll be disappointed with!

Excellent Italian in Inman Park
Sotto Sotto was a very enjoyable meal. Initially, our server was a little off his game, but after the first course, the service was excellent. The food was great!
The homemade pasta was excellent. I'm glad I had it prepared as intended. At first, I asked to have a different preparation. The server asked the chef, but he said 'No', that's not an ideal substitute. I'm glad I trusted the chef.
If you are in Inman Park area, you should try Sotto Sotto. Skip the other 'poser' Italian restaurant on the same street.

Sotto Sotto Review
My cousin was in Atlanta on a business trip, and I suggested Sotto Sotto for dinner. We were greeted warmly by the waitress. While we had a reservation, we arrived 30 minutes early. The restaurant was happy to accommodate us. The atmosphere was pleasant, and the noise level was moderate. The waiters were attentive and cordial. Other diners included families with children and couples. My cousin ordered a pasta dish with clams and stated that it was excellent. I enjoyed ravioli with tomato sauce. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others.

Another great visit to Sotto Sotto. Service was very good as usual, maybe the waiter even tried to hard
Waiter had excellent knowledge of the Italian wines to help in decision making. Food was delicious as usual
and some new items to choose from. Beet salad is delicious and blue cheese in the salad is exceptional
Tried summer pasta of heirloom tomatoes and it was perfect

glad I tried it
Great menu, but fairly pricy, especially the wine. Grant waited on us and was very knowledgeable, but pretty pretentious, which was off-putting. Glad I tried it - my food was all good, but nothing too memorable. I'm glad I went, but feel no need to go back any time soon.

Friendly & delicious!
Wonderful experience at Sotto Sotto! First, very helpful to have free valet parking right across the street, THANK YOU for that! Atmosphere is cozy, simple, and elegant. The tables are very close to each other, so this would not be a place I would recommend for a super-private or confidential chats. ;) My favorite parts of the menu were the pasta & risotto dishes. You can get them in half-portions which is either great for lighter eaters or, what we did, for ways to sample a number of different dishes. Everything was outstanding; our waiter was very engaging and made terrific recommendations. Can't wait to go back and sit in the lovely little courtyard (if it will ever STOP RAINING!)

Quaint and always good
I love this place. The pasta is always amazing and oh the chocolate soup - yum!

pricey and hard to get reservations
pricey and hard to get reservations, but the food is consistently excellent.

One of Atlanta's Best
Hands down, best Italian food in Atlanta. Have only been twice but both times had superior service and food. Deconstructed lasagna is an absolute must along with the "Priests" pasta with sausage. There is nothing better than homemade pasta. Amazing flavors. Two of the best! And try the scallops as an appetizer. They are grilled and buttery!
Great spot! Can't wait to return!

Best Italian in Atlanta?
My wife and I went there for our anniversary. We enjoyed the quiet outdoor seating. White covered tables, expansive wine list, delicious bread and olive oil.
For starters, we had the caesar salad, which was good. Nothing too amazing, but a good salad with plenty of flavor.
We had the Tortelli di Michelangelo and Strozzapreti alla Salsiccia. Both dishes were superb! Bursting with flavor, we really enjoyed our main courses. Plenty of food, good service, and our friend Aaron surprised us with a complimentary bowl of chocolate soup! Really a memorable evening, and great dining experience.

I have been here several times so when confronted with making a reservation for my husband and his business partner, Sotto was my go to place! Food excellent! Dined outside awesome! Service... Bizarre... Felt as if maybe it was our servers first night? If it wasn't... Probably should have been his last... It was uncomfortably ackward... Still in my rotation though.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another excellent meal...
Simple, traditional Italian done incredibly well. Everything is fresh and the olive oil is divine. Pastas are made in house and always my favorite (the crudaiola, duck pappardelle and sweet sausage ragout being my top 3) great wine list (almost all Italian) and the service is always impeccable while still casual and comfortable. They are all incredibly knowledgable as well.

Great Romantic Night Out
The food was delicious, and the service was exceptional! Our waiter went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our evening.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sotto Sotto is one-of-a-kind. The food is fantastic and the wine list is great. Brett and the team (especially Albert) are terrific and always make you feel at home. This is a unique gem of a restaurant: a neighborhood place that is world class.

Excellent food & service!
We chose Sotto Sotto to celebrate my Dad's birthday, & were not disappointed! We started with the olive oil tasting & cap reuse salad. Then we shared the first course portion of four dishes (this is a little more than a half portion), & had one full portion of the "priest strangler" pasta. Everything was delicious!!! We capped it off with the white bread piddling & chocolate soup for dessert. We did not leave ANYTHING on our plates!

Sotto Sotto - What a great gem!
My first experience dining at this restaurant was outstanding! I entertained very important clients and the night could not have gone better. Carson,our waiter, was extremely knowledgable not only about the menu items but the expansive wine list as well. He made great recommendations for my vegitarian clients and they were very pleased with his choices for them. The food and service were outstanding and the ambiance was lively and chic. I highly recommend this gem to all Italian food lovers.

Two couples + Sotto Sotto = four VERY happy people! The rissotto is always wonderful, and we also got the meat/cheese/olive appetizer. Fourth visit and it has always been spot-on. Sweet and happy food moans could be heard throughout...
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was extremely fabulous. My wife and I agree that we will be coming back and have already recommended this to many friends. If you want a special night or just a great Italian meal then come to Sotto Sotto, you will leave satisfied, your hearts enlightened, and best of all a better connection to your loved one. Food is truly the international language and it brings us all closer together, and when done as exquisitely as Sotto Sotto you have become one with each other and have been transported to new place that only those that participate can enjoy. So please, come and enjoy and you will truly be refreshed both physically and spiritually (at least in dining).

We wanted to take out son and his friend somewhere special for his birthday. This was definitely special.. We sat outside and the waiter could not have been more attentive and helpful. The wine was great, the food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect!! We will definitely be back!!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a Great Evening!
Our table was ready when we arrived, & the host gave us a quiet spot by the window which was perfect. our server was really terrific, he split our salads in the kitchen, when he saw that we really liked something, he brought us more of it without our saying a word. that is the mark of a great server.
we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our meal and our experience.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is always fantastic ~
Food is always fantastic ~ our server was a bit moody, but that is to be expected the first night of restaurant week.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friends and I had an enjoyable experience at Sotto Sotto after hearing a lot of good things about the place. Decent portions on the 3 course menu. Out of the 3 entrees, I think the onion risotto was the best. Strozzapreti was a close second. The smallest portion size was the brown butter and sage pasta. Looking forward to returning and would definitely recommend.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sotto Sotto never fails. Everything
Sotto Sotto never fails. Everything is delicious from olive oil tasting through dessert. Service is always on point and they give the best wine recommendations. This place is definitely one of my favorites in Atlanta. I look forward to my next visit.

First time visit
We were looking for a place for a pre-theater dinner. This place was perfect! The restaurant is charming...love the way they hid the cement walls with cloth pieces. There are a couple of outdoor areas, where we would like to sit on another visit. We had a table upstairs with a fun view of some of the dining downstairs...both inside and outside. The food was great...we used the tasting menu, and my husband and I were both pleased. Only one negative? The chocolate bread pudding was not chocolate...had a few chocolate pieces on top. We will definitely visit again!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
good but not great!
There are better Italian restaurants in the city. My husband had (for an appetizer) beet salad which was good, but, very small. I had the mushroom/pasta dish which was good, but not great. I think they are overpriced. Tables are very close together, so don't expect to have a private conversation. Our server was professional. Since we live a distance away, I would not hurry back. BTW, you MAY find parking on the street, but, in all probability you would have to valet park, which is free, but tipping is accepted.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb food and a marvelous
Superb food and a marvelous selection of gorgeous Italian wines, some of which are mainstream and others of which are ecclectic and adventurous. Service is courteous and prompt, but it suffers from lapses in attention. The noise in this restaurant is its biggest drawback --- don't count on an intimate conversation here.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sotto Sotto continues to be one of my very favorite restaurants in all of Atlanta. It is the spot I always choose to celebrate a special occasion. Great food, service, great wine list...this place never disappoints!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sotto Sotto seems to have gotten pricier. Both the menu and the wine list.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was not our first time @ Sotto Sotto and it will not be our last. My wife and I had a special friend return to Atlanta and wanted to welcome her back...Sotto Sotto was the ideal place.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sotto Sotto never dissapoints. It has become one of my favorite places. The food, service, and ambiance are always great. Please keep it up!!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved everything about Sotto Sotto!. Food was truly excellent, service as well. Definitely a great choice while visiting in Atlanta.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a very pleasant evening. Food was very good; service was great; and it as not noisy. My partner and I could easily enjoy conversation. It had been a long time since I have been there, but I am never disappointed when I go.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was disappointed because the food wasn't good. I was expecting the food to be amazing, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. The service was great. Our waiter was very attentive. The tables were too close together so I was in the midst of the conversations next to me. I could hardly hear the person across from me because the woman next to me was quite loud. I will not be returning.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great evening starts here
All four us ordered different entrees, and each was outstanding. The patio seating is especially nice when the weather is good. Our wait staff was excellent - attentive without hovering and made perfect suggestions for the pair that had not previously been there. Great experience.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I were the recipients of a gift card, and we were looking forward to returning to Sotto Sotto since we enjoyed our first experience so much. We were not disappointed in the least. Food was wonderful; service was impeccable; ambience perfect; wine beyond our wildest dreams --- reminded us of our visits to Italy!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
All of the food was amazing and reasonably priced. The scallop appetizer and pastas were definitely my favorite. The only negative side is that some of the tables are very close to one another so you can easily hear your neighbors conversation.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, but crowded!
The food and service was awesome. The Michaelangelo was a work of art. My second time at this place and judging on the food and service I have no complaints!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food and wine were great!
Food and wine were great! The restaurant is very small and you are practically sitting on top of eachother, But it is worth the experience. Thought the scallops were amazing for an appetizer, but a little pricey. $18 for 3 scallops. Entree Portions are medium sized and great italian wine list.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
As usual, great meal. Wine
As usual, great meal. Wine selection is impressive, with reasonably priced offerings. Great service, atmosphere and experience. One of if not the best Italian restaurant in Atlanta.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
evening out at Sotto Sotto
Relaxed atmosphere but not overly casual. We had the beet salad, caesar salad, mushroom risotto and tortellini special. All excellent. Waiter was attentive without being obnoxious. Lovely spot for a birthday dinner.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
We only go here a few times a year and every time the food is outstanding. Was great to see that they offer Brunellos by the glass. Most spots don't do that and it made the meal. Food was great and the service was a robotic but still very good.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect family celebration dinner
My family went to Sotto Sotto for dinner before thanksgiving. The staff was prompt without being distracting, and the food was perfect. Even my sister who dislikes sea scallops loved this appetizer....the scallop was cooked to perfection and the sauce was both spicy and delicate. I had the ribeye cooked to a true medium, one of the best steaks I have had. It was well seasoned, but not so overwhelmed with seasoning that the meatiness was gone. What a fine meal and a kind staff!! We will be back for next celebration.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my boyfriend to Sotto Sotto for date night, he doesn't normally like " fancy" restaurants but he loved sotto sotto. The food, the service, the mood- everything was perfect. The salmon and chicken were well seasoned and cooked to perfection. We can't wait to come back.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great hand made pastas. Notable wine list. Nice decor. Everything I look for in a neighborhood restaurant. It's consistantly good.
The service was attentive. Jimmy was our accommodating server. Thanks for an enjoyable dinner!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and atmosphere
Loved this restaurant. Service was great, food was outstanding, and loved the ambience. I highly recommend this place.

Excellent food, wine, and service
We have been at Sotto Sotto various times and we are always impressed with the great quality of the food, the wine selection, and the service. They have kept this very high level for a long time now, which makes them one of the absolute Italian top places in Atlanta.
