The shortest route to Sotto Sotto's charms lies through its fresh pasta, with "simple" and "traditional" being the bywords.

Diner Reviews
  • "Our first dinner at Sotto Sotto did not disappoint. We sat on the patio for more privacy. Lovely (could use some color). Splitting courses is an excellent strategy to taste each course without exploding. We shared the scallops, mushroom risotto, "priest strangler" and the salmon main course. All were superb. Can't wait to return."

  • "I have been to Sotto Sotto several time during restaurant week, but never during their regular menu. This was the first time and well worth it. Also the pasta is pretty affordable for how delicious it is. We had a party of 6 and everyone greatly enjoyed their meal. The best thing on the table was easily the meat lasagna."

  • "Sotto Sotto was a great overall experience. Food was very good, service was friendly & attentive. Prices were fair for what you ordered. Very good wine list. The people treated you as if they were glad you came. Good decor. I loved being able to see right into the kitchen. I would definitely go back."

  • "This was a return visit and we were pleased again. We dined in the outdoor garden and I recommend it if space is available. The service and food were fantastic. We like to take our time and savor the food, wine, ambiance and conversation. Those who complain about slow service here need to relax and enjoy this place."

  • "For me Sotto Sotto is one of the best restaurants in Atlanta. I love this place. I had friends visiting from out of the country and decided to take them there for dinner. They loved everything; food, service, ambiance, etc! Please keep up the great work!!"

  • "Alittle skeptical @ first with tight seating while celebrating a family birthday but the manager quickly noticed our nervousness & moved us to a great table. Jenny our server could not be any more close to perfect & the food matched ! Will defiantly be back on a night to try out the patio ( date night :-) !"

  • "For us, this is the best Italian restaurant in Atlanta. We sat on the patio which is more private. The indoor seating is a little crowded and the noise level there is high. The food was outstanding. I recommend that scallop appetizer and any of the pastas. The service was attentive too. The risottos are great too, but heavier than the pastas. In fact these dishes are so good that i have not tried yet any of the main dishes. There are plenty of interesting wines to choose from and the servers are happy to recommend some."

  • "First, let me say that I have been to many different resturants in Atlanta at the top of the food scene. This was maybbe my 10th time dining at Sotto Sotto and I am always impressed with the quality of the food, the competence of the wait staff and the wine recommendations. I was here for my partner's stepmother's birthday and they supplementted our meal with champagne and chocloate soup for her-which was a very nice and accommodating surprise. I was very impressed. Also, everybody in the group loved the idea of getting two small dishes, what they term 'first-course size', of two different selections to try them out. Everything on the menu is wonderful and must be tried."

  • "Have enjoyed our dining experience here in the past - food was delicious and well prepared as was expected. Great wine selection as well!! Was disappointed in quality of service. Our waiter seemed like he was too busy or didn't have much interest in our overall dining experience - which is why I enjoy eating here! Not much detail or enthusiasm in explanations about dishes or various wine selections. Hope that our next visit will be more of what we have come to expect here."

  • "Sotto Sotto is consistently one of my favorite places to dine when craving pasta or risotto, theirs seems to have a certain quality and attention to detail that I have not found elsewhere in the city. Although the food is excellent it never fails that some member of the staff will rub me the wrong way during our dining experience and because of this we only occasionally frequent the restaurant. A little bit of personality and customer service would go a long way to cement the experience."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Service was a disappointment. From getting seated to table serving. Seating is very close together so it's a little awkward. Food was "good" but over priced. I would definitely choose other fine Italian eateries in Atlanta. Boca Al Lupo has maybe just outshines this place so much, I was very underwhelmed with sotto sotto and was expecting much more since there is a lot of hype."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We live in San Francisco and are very used to good food here, but what surprised us most about Atlanta is how many great restaurants there are. Sotto Sotto is one of those great restaurants. We had their deconstructed lasagna, which shouldn't really be called a lasagna but it doesn't matter what they call it, it's delicious. Also, their sea food risotto was really great, but they did need to cook the seafood another 30 seconds. Slightly too rare for our tastes, but that was the only mis-step in the entire meal. Great service, great atmosphere, good food. What else is there?"

  • "My wife and I dine here often over the past several years. I've never had a dish that wasn't excellent. This kind of consistency is rare."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food was really good. Many entrees were new to me so I like the idea of the option to order a small amt. of more than one item. It was a bit too crowded for me."

  • "The location is a little hard to locate because the signage and building. If you don't know the "logo" its hard to deceipher which building it's in. Valet is on the back side of the building which makes it easy to get in and out in the small tight corners of Inman Park. Valet is complementary so a tip is necessary! Our waitress was Jenni-she was spot on until the end. She remembered why we were there at the end by honoring my guest on her retirement. We had the Bufalae e Peperoni, the Mista to begin our meal. Wonderful! My guest had 2 small pasta dishes and I had the Polletto al Limone. Perfect & the chicken was moist and tasty. Excellent wine selection and atmosphere. We arrived early it was quiet but its was loud when we left."

  • "Antipasto for two was excellent with fine quality meats and cheeses. We had the "Priest strangler" pasta entree, the pasta was handmade and delicious, the unique sauce was excellent. My wife is 100% Italian and I am 50%, we are familiar with authentic Italian food. Soto Soto is an authentic Italian restaurant. The location and atmosphere however do not equal this high quality restaurant."

  • "Sotto Sotto is the best Italian food in Atlanta and my favorite place for a romantic evening. The scallop appetizers melt in your mouth, beet salad is bright and delicious. I've had most of the pasta dishes on the menu and there isn't a dog among them. Personal recommendations are the mushrooms and the duck ragu dishes. Doesn't matter what you order - you won't be disappointed."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Sotto Sotto used to be one of my favorites. The other night, it was way off. It felt like there was no management or expeditor in the place. In the fava and pecorino dish, the fava were way too huge and utterly flavorless -- something that aught never to be used unless it is perfect (they never would've used such bad fava into a dish at, say, Daniel in New York). Waiter never asked how it was so we didn't bring it up. Next, my partner order a small risotto for primi and a small pasta for second. The waiter brought them out at the same time, so my partner had two hot plates of food in front of him at once. Huge error on the part of the staff. Ask if you're not sure. That's just common sense, guys."

  • "Pablo was our waiter. Although he refrained from introducing himself to us, he was prompt and professional. After telling us who he was, and that he was not just passing through, but there to serve us, he really shined. We tried the scallops appetizer, which was everything one could hope for. My husband had the salmon over arugula w/blk rice, wow!!! He couldn't speak. Just divine! I had the whole fish, which was wood grilled to perfection. Kudos to the Chef! My 9 year craved a Caesar salad, and yes, it was all she expected. Pablo even brought her extra cheese...we further indulged by adding the housemade pasta. Looonnngg story, short...we will be going back soon. Thanks for your recommendations Pablo!!!!"

  • "From the maître d' to the bartender to the waitstaff all were excellent and professional at the jobs. Although was a Friday evening in there pretty busy on Fridays the waiter suggested to come back again and visit on Monday Tuesday or Wednesday when it's a little more relaxed atmosphere. An added bonus because the area is so tight with parking they do have valet parking. It was a wonderful experience and I do intend to try it again doing a weekday."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Soto Soto. All the staff is great but our waiter was especially wonderful. We sat outside and it got to buggy. We came inside and we were happy that our waiter could come with us. He gave us great recommendations and went above and beyond. The food was fabulous"

  • "My group dined at Sotto Sotto after the theatre on Sunday night. I had included a note on my reservation that we couldn't be certain we'd be on time, but they held our table for 6. Service was excellent, we didn't feel rushed, waiter recommendations for food and wine were on target. A very pleasant experience. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "My only recommendation is to possibly add some additional guidance to the wine list for the more novice, but very interested, customer. With the entire menu listed in Italian, if you don't have a reason to already know a lot about the wines on the list or recognize the names, it's fairly difficult to navigate. This of course can be solved by a great Som but we mostly just dealt directly with our waiter who seemed new and fairly nervous in dealing with me and my date. So I guess it's one or the other, simplification / guidance within the menu or a better recommendation experience."
