It was so great to be back eating in a restaurant and Sotto Soppra provided such a great experience for Valentine's Day. The service was friendly, timely, and overall great. The carbonara, mussels, and apple strudel were so good!

The portions are huge. I ordered a seafood risotto that was NOT good at all, probably the worst risotto I've ever had. I guess it's a restaurant where one wants to be seen rather than dine. Extremely disappointing.

Pandemic menu is (understandably) abbreviated but not reflected on website. You can't, for example, get either of the duck items. Wine is marked up more than 100%.

Delicious food, classic Italian menu yet still interesting! Service is always phenomenal, great wine list with a nice range in price and varietals. A gorgeous interior with high ceilings, so grateful for the staff's conscientious dedication to COVID protocols. Sotto Sopra is a true gem!

A very, very nice CoViD evening out. I was so glad to experience it and especially glad this restaurant is surviving. Derek wore several hats from bartender to server, but managed everything well. Other than so much room between tables, masks and no food sharing, it was as if there were no pandemic. Nice to let it go a little bit.

One of the better restaurants in Baltimore. Interesting, imaginative and delicious cuisine. Relaxed atmosphere. Good place to go with friends and out-of-town guests. Casual dress, impeccable service. Love that it has both indoor and outdoor dining. Good but reasonably priced wine-list. Always reliable.

I was visiting my daughter in Baltimore and we decided to try this place out. It is very near her apartment. The menu was very extensive and the food items we selected were generous and delicious. Drinks and wines were excellent as well. Service was excellent. Server very knowledgeable. I would definitely return to this restaurant and highly recommend it.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Sotto Sopra and will definitely be looking to return soon. We haven’t been there since 2017 and it’s too bad we waited so long, especially when we remembered it being very good. Great food, great service, reasonable prices, and the ambiance was nice since it wasn’t too busy or noisy. Definitely a great place to dine Italian in Baltimore city.

Great meal. Food was outstanding
With only 25% capacity from the city
we felt very special and COVID free

Please support these businesses, the city is killing them

We do not visit Baltimore very often
But Sotto Sopra has become our place to go!
Outside dining available as well as a well spaced interior set up.
Feel safe with good food, drink, and service.

This was the spot we chose for our 2nd wedding anniversary (during Covid-19) and even before we finished our 2nd bites of the entree we were saying, "This was the perfect choice!"

We booked a reservation online and indicated it was an anniversary and we got a surprise!

We will make it back again for another special occasion!

Always wonderful!

Disappointed that valet service was not available, but realize that it would not be advisable or allowed during Covid. We did feel vulnerable walking to the restaurant from the garage and then back down Charles Street again in the dark.

Wish this could all be over and that we could resume our normal way of life and return to Sotto Sopra on a regular basis.
