Our waiter was AMAZING!!!!! My fiancé’s first time here, and we celebrated our engagement. He pulled out all the stops and bells and whistles. Highly loved the experience

Sotto Sopra is a gem! An everyday dining or a special occasion! The staff is vested in each other’s success that exudes through each dish! This type of climate starts at the top... the owner and you see that from the moment you walk through the doors! Love love love this place... I only wish I lived a little closer so I could enjoy this culinary experience more!!!

Lobster bisque was only tomato soup. Husband had the veal dish. Wish they would have explained it more. He hated it. The wine was good and dessert ok, very generic tasting.

The mussels were the best I've ever had. The squid ink spaghetti with shrimp and calamari is awesome. Simply fantastic food, wine, and service.

Scotto Sopra has a great and diverse menu, with something for everyone. Consistent or reliable undermines the excellent food quality. Always a great experience.

It was good not great. Thursday night and empty at 7pm is a bit odd. Fettuccine Bolognese was exceptional and light for Bolognese as it wasn’t creamy. Calamari was average at best. I would go back but not in a rush.

The food is always amazing. Miss the ambiance inside, but that’s no fault of the restaurant. They were every bit as attentive as they always have been. A must-try if you like elevated Italian fare.

This is not the same old spaghetti and meatballs that you'd find in Little Italy. Every time we leave Sotto Sopra we can't wait to go back.

I loved it! Everything on the menu sounded really good and it was really difficult to decide. I eventually went with the Charcuterie Board for an appetizer and Fettuccine Alfredo with Fresh Bacon Bits- It was all amazing. I can't wait to come back!

I’ve always been a fan of Sotto. The level of service and the personal touches are always beyond expectations.

In a world where servers can be dismissive, I appreciate the power of professional servers.

We wanted to support one of our favorites so we decided to eat indoors and after 3 months with shelter in place we felt normal ! The meal was delicious and so happy to see the staff !

Wow! Amazing service, Derek was the best server we’ve ever had. Conversational, great suggestions on food and wine pairings, made special accommodations for our food allergies. Oh and the FOOD IS AMAZING! My mother was born and raised in Italy so I avoid Italian restaurants because they never compare - this place is exquisite - moms home cooked meal but better (sorry mom). Delicious and wonderfully prepared, like they spent all day cooking the sauces. Go here!!

The service was wonderful. The food was great and the menu was creative and unique. The ambiance was very nice, however, i think more could be done with the outdoor decor to make it feel more intimate. While dining, several people walking/driving by interrupted us to ask for change, bus stop info, and directions. Not that i mind helping people, but it’s a very strange time to be interrupted. Perhaps the restaurant could put up planters or some other temporary dividers to give diners a more private experience with outdoor dining. I know that restaurants are facing a variety of challenges due to the pandemic so I’m not judging harshly. I would def come back.

Sotto Sopra never disappoints. I have been there for their Opera night and now their Jazz Wednesday. (I will say that the jazz is just light stuff and would probably not satisfy a hard core jazz fan, but it is pleasant and well played.) The food is always superb, the service is efficient, friendly, and accomodating, and the setting is terrific.

I'm from Italy and this is one of the very few Italian places I have been to in Baltimore where the food is truly authentic. (The chef is from Bergamo, Italy). I certainly enjoy all types of cuisine from the entire world, but if you are looking for an authentic Italian restaurant in Baltimore, this is it. We will go back again.

Service and table setting were lovely. I had saltimbocca which was delicious and the perfect serving size. Perhaps a little more zucchini in the vegetable but understand that it isn't really the time of year for it. My daughter ordered the mushroom filled chicken with potato; she would have preferred that the chicken skin had been rendered more and that it was more crispy but understood the sauce may have posed a challenge to that. The apple strudel was really lovely although perhaps a tablespoon more ice cream since the filling was really hot and needed the ice cream to be able to eat it. The chianti was delightful.
