Sosta represents an evolutionary vision for chef/owner Luca Manderino. This wine bar and restaurant concept eatery brings together Luca's achievements from his former Hermosa venture called La Sosta Enoteca with a fresh new approach which will include a late afternoon opening time featuring a comprehensive Italian wine list and cicchetti as well as stylish in-house fashion & sexy live music salons. All of which is anchored by Luca's extraordinary menus and emphasis on exceptional truly-Italian service sensibilities.

    We have dined at this restaurant before, and the total experience was amazing. This night we were very disappointed. The Langoustine was not cooked properly. It was mushy and cost $65. We also had the spaghetti and mussels. The flavor was outstanding, but the spaghetti was undercooked. I am a fan of al dente pasta, but this was still under cooked. They did give us a free tiramisu for desert, but was still disappointed with the overall experience.

    Made reservations for my birthday with family. Service was not so great, got one order wrong and waited very long for our entrees. Maybe a short staffed night, however not an excuse for fine dining and a pricy menu.

    Girl’s night out. Spagettti with sea urchin sauce was amazing, as well as the langostino, spaghetti with clams, yellow tail carpaccio and charcuterie. Great wine offerings as well. We spend $120 per person with the tip. Fab for a special occasion but it’s a bit much for a random night out.

    What to say. Some of the food was done well, ribeye, spinach, bread, olive oil. But, there were a few fundamental flaws, gnocchi needed cutting, wine flavor (alcohol not burned off) with salmon, salmon in chunks, meet lacked flavor, etc. This restaurant could be good but third time is a charm for us and I will not be returning until they fix these things.

    Food was great empty plates all around for a family seating of 4. Our server was excellent and stopped by with a few treats on the house to whet our palate before the entrees arrived. While my dish could have been a touch warmer, I will highly recommend this place to friends and family.
