Me and my girlfriend were treated with the utmost respect by the servers and especially the great Lindsay! She was patient with us and helping explain the menu when we had questions. Her energy was fantastic and so kind. If she could be moved up for a promotion that would be fantastic. We would love her to be our server every time 😁

Excellent as usual. We reserved a table but elected to eat at the bar. Bartender was very friendly, professional and courteous. Veal stuffed pasta and rabbit were both outstanding.

My husband and I have been to Sotto Sopra several times and it is our favorite restaurant in Baltimore. It never disappoints. We brought some friends with us to dinner last night and they can’t wait to go back. The food is wonderful, the service is always fantastic. Our server last night, Lindsay, was fun and she gave honest and helpful recommendations with the menu. Jose the manager is always friendly and impresses us every time because he remembers us from previous visits. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Sotto Sopra is one of those classic Baltimore restaurants that have been around forever and your grandparents go for their anniversary. Old school in the ways where they still wrap the water jugs in white napkins, servers are dressed in white collared shirts, and there are mirrors on the walls. The food wasn't bad, just bland. Dessert comes out with whipped cream in the corners with sprigs of mint. Service was great. Food came out on time/right temp etc. just...ok... hate to rag on a spot that's made it through the pandemic but there's room for improvement.

We stopped in before a show at the BSO and had a somewhat short timeline. Our server made sure things came out quickly and we shared a short-rib ravioli and carbonara with a Caesar. Everything was excellent! I can’t wait to return!

The energy of Sotto Sopra is great, the food is delicious, but it feels like they have crammed a lot of tables into a small space. I will be back for the food and ambiance, but I am not a fan of the tight tables.

Excellent service. The menu was varied and had interesting and well prepared items. The prices were reasonable and we had a couple of excellent bottles of an Italian Sangiovese for under $50 a piece. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Absolutely gorgeous ambience. Servers are attentive without being intrusive. Table is kept clear of dirty dishes. Food is nothing short of outstanding. It's definitely on our list of go-to places for special date nights. A little pricey, but worth every penny.

Don't miss this incredible NYC-like Northern Italian Bistro in the heart of Baltimore! Best pasta and sauces; we loved the al dente short ribbed and veal tortoloni. The bronzino was different with an Eggplant center and the seafood risotto outstanding. Never missing my after dinner espresso was smooth and easy. The bill with drinks, tip and Gelato was very well worth it!

Sotto Sopra is a small intimate restaurant which serves excellent Italian food. Mostly pasta dishes and the wine is very good for matching. The price is average and parking is convenient. There is a public ramp only a short block away. The service was excellent and great recommendations.

Went for my partner’s Birthday dinner. Great Saturday night date or friends meet up spot. Tables spaced adequately and you can talk without straining. Excellent wait staff who made the night feel special from the first toast to the sparkly dessert for the birthday boy. Very good food. Could use just a little more light to allow you to read the menu.
