After several years and lots of hype, Beverly Hills' Sotto, one of LA’s great Italian restaurants is still warranting the praise.
Service was good but food came out very late and out of order. However food was delicious, ambience had energy, waitstaff was very nice. A favorite restaurant with a neighbourhood vibe.
Our waitress was so on target . She was helpful, friendly, timely and never rushing us. Her recommendations were perfect and her attention to detail (given my good allergy) was impeccable. All of that and the food was fresh, fabulous and fun!
Delicious pizza with excellent cheese, zesty sauce and a thin crust that manages to have a toothsome texture without being undercooked. The ribeye came with perfect roasted potatoes but the steak had some similarity of taste to a roast and was a bit disappointing. In fairness, I had the feeling that the ribeye may have been the selection that was not their strongpoint. The gelato was dense, creamy and excellent. The waiter was extremely pleasant.
Love Everything about this restaurant!
Very clean setting, ambient lighting set the mood right for date night. Great service.
Really enjoy Sotto. Food is just delicious and I had the best vodka - a local brew - which was also just great. Very good service. All around an enjoyable meal. We actually had to order the Spaghetti twice - it was that good! Really enjoyed the evening.
Wonderful in every respect!! Terrific food and wine and a great atmosphere. Feels like a top neighborhood restaurant in Manhattan. Excellent restaurant.
the food especially the pizza is consistently great but it was super slow this time. A normal meal took 2 hours which is about double our average time there.
Great meal, great service. Fun, yet cozy atmosphere.
Some of the best pizzas I've had in LA - also great produce, whether in salads, sides or entrees. It can be very loud though so not great for intimate conversations. Have had really good service and the bar is fun - and you can eat there as well.
We love this spot. Have been multiple times. Never had a less than stellar meal and the service is friendly and efficient.
Great vibe in this underground, intimate restaurant! Food was great, service was quick, and we were seated right away!
I've been coming here for years. It's always consistently good! Service is great.
Everyone I bring here loves it!
We had the Olives, Chickpea Panelle (which is sooo good! I crave it and have been tempted to replicate this at home!), Charred Brussel Sprouts (which were a bit spicy), the BREAD with lardo, the grilled pork meatballs were so delicious, the Fioratta Pizza which was sweet and savory. Everything was delicious as usual. We finished the night with the Buttermilk Zeppole (which is not your traditional zeppole but it has more of a cake consistency) which was yummy with chocolate sauce and powered sugar, and the Hazelnut Pana Cotta so decadent!.
Please bring back the blistered gem salad! It's amazing!
Arrived early for reservation and seated right away. Pizzas are legit!!!!!!
Another great dinner at Sotto. I had mentioned that we were going for a date night and when we arrived they had a really cute set up for us at a great table in the center of the room where we could check out the awesome wine room display. Great wine recommendations, better pizza and pasta. I love this place and will definitely be coming back again and again.
Loved the snap peas and green risotto. Wine choice by sommelier was perfect. We’ll be back.
Good food and service. A little loud. I’d come back
Noise level too high
I love the food here. Consistent and unexpectedly delicious. The use of fresh mint in the salad and vegetable quality compliment every dish.
Food was even better than the last time we were there. Seasonal specials of snap peas with mint, and nettles and artichoke risotto were outstanding. And of course the burrata was fantastic as always.
Squid ink pasta was the best
really great, awesome food and wine
SOTTO is a perennial LA hangout. Fantastic pizzas, pasta, vegetables and meat. Interesting and creative wine list. Good cocktails. Has the F2T thing, the authentic artisan Italian thing and kind of a Euro feel in a good way. Solid or even better than solid. Go hungry, eat the pizza and relax.
It was really good! We really enjoyed the food and the wine selection was great.
Had great time with amazing dinner and excellent service.
Pizza crust was soggy and disappointing. If I leave pizza on the plate and refuse to take the leftovers home, has to be pretty bad. Service was pretty poor as well. If you want real pizza, go to Mozza!
Excellent food and great service. Would recommend to friends and family. Only negative was parking, $10.50 is outrages
Love this place
Love it there!! Always a superb meal.
Good food. services was fast . causal and cosy . Valet parking cost $10
Loved sitting in front of the kitchen!! Blistered snap peas were amazing, as well as my fav dish chicken liver rigatoni.
Went to celebrate a big birthday for mom after having been for our anniversary. It was another delicious meal but do wish they had a larger selection of more reasonably priced wines. Service was excellent and tailored to our needs. Ambience is lovely (dark, cozy, and almost sultry but not pretentious). We love the place and expect to be long time patrons.
Food and wine were excellent. Very knowledgeable staff. Skip the cocktails at the bar. Almost undrinkable.
Normally I wouldn’t submit a review but it only seems fair as this was a let down. Food was exceptional as always. The service was beyond poor.
Risotto undercooked, fish slightly over cooked, bathroom dirty, glassware was dirty, it was a prix fix menu but we were given a bill for one of the items that was not clear it was extra. Overall food good but disappointed with the level of care.
We had a great early Valentine's day dinner. Great place for a meal and great experience. Only down side is noise level was very loud. Not best place for romantic dinner when they are busy.
both the paccheri with spicy pork ragu, rapini, and fennel and blistered snap peas with mint and ricotta were unusual and exceptional. the margherita pizza with burrata was terrific, the crust was unexpected (kind of spongy) yet quite tasty. the bistecca aged ribeye was also very, very good. even the homemade bread with anchovy butter was we excellent. got the buttermilk zeppole (like beignets) for dessert and they were also great.
Meal was delicious, our waiter was very attentive and timely. Its kinda small but that made it really cozy and romantic. Its a hidden gem and I’ll definitely be back!
