It had been several years since we last ate at Sotto Sopra, and I had forgotten how beautiful the restaurant is. Wonderful Restaurant Week menu--many options available, including multiple non-meat entrees. Service was polished. Highly recommend!

We can’t begin to tell you how glad we were to be able to dine inside again at Sotto Sopra. We have really missed coming here, and they missed us as well. What a nice feeling that was to be so warmly welcomed back by Lindsay, Derek and Victoria. Riccardo and his team always put together an extensive menu for Restaurant Week, and we knew that we would not be disappointed. Derek, our server, was, as always, at the top of his game – nothing escaped him – our water glasses were always full, and he kept a close eye on our needs. On Sunday, we started with the most delectable appetizers – two Calamari Fritti, Tomato Gazpacho soup, and a Goat Cheese Salad. For our second courses, we were all thrilled with our selections. We had two Creamy Carbonara alla Sotto Sopra, a Pan-Seared Branzino Filet, and a Pan-Seared Atlantic King Salmon. The sweet endings to our delicious meals were two 2 Cheesecake with Raspberry sorbet, Tiramisu, and the Semolina Cake with Dried Fig Sauce. Whew – we were all full and happy.

Last night, we went to Sotto Sopra with another couple, and it was as delicious as our Sunday night dinner. Victoria was our server for the evening, and she was so friendly and attentive. We started with three Calamari Fritti and a Caesar Salad. For our entrees, we had Pan-Seared Atlantic King Salmon, two Short Rib Ravioli, and Francobolli di Ricotta e Spinaci. For our desserts, we chose two Semolina Cakes with Fig Sauce, Vanilla Crème Brulee, and a Cheesecake with Raspberry sorbet. We were all impressed with the flavors of each and every dish we had. Everything was just perfect – each dish was expertly prepared and presented. We were delighted to meet José, the new manager.

As an added bonus, we had a celebrity sighting: Treat Williams, the actor, was dining there as well

Appetizer never arrived. We were charged extra for putting anchovies on the Caesar salad. Shrimp was undercooked. Service was inattentive. We normally like this place, but tonight was an off night. Ugh!!!

Sotto Sopra is a delight. The food is always fresh and tasty. Try the short rib ravioli with mushrooms. Wonderful. I usually order the duck breast, which I love, but decided to try something different.

The server has worked there a long time, and she was nothing short of outstanding.

Wonderful Father's Day dinner last night. Food was delicious, portions perfect. Had appetizers & dessert and did not leave feeling full.
So happy you survived the pandemic and are back to indoor dining. You have not missed a beat. The service was outstanding! Well done!
Special thanks to our server (a gentleman who wore Italian flag mask)
