    This is a fabulous restaurant! The service the plating of the food and the quality of the food is second to none. A very classy ambience with relatively easy on the street parking. No valet parking but I’ll walk the extra half a block just to eat there any time. It has been consistent for the last 15 years that my wife and I have been going there. Never a miss no matter what we order. Don’t miss going there!

    Some good wines. Felt a little rushed from appetizer to entree. Food was good but not as exceptional as we once had there.

    We go to Sotto Sopra 7-8 times a year prior to plays at the the Hippodrome. We used to rotate restaurants but have settled on SS because we can’t resist the incredible service and wonderful ambiance. The food can sometimes be only just good, although it is frequently excellent, but the whole experience keeps us coming back again and again. We are never disappointed.

    Always a wonderful evening. We were lucky to, once again, get Derrick as our server - such a hard working, helpful, pleasant guy! It had been too long since we dined at SS… can’t wait to go back. It was wonderful to see it full and lively! We love everything about this wonderful restaurant!

    The atmosphere and service was next level. Food was very good but the service was amazing. It was our anniversary dinner and I showed up almost 20-mins late due to traffic. My wife was well taken care of while she waited for me to arrive. The staff made her feel comfortable and welcomed. Great dinner and evening!!

    Great ambience. Kudos to whoever designed the interior and managed to give everyone at a table a view, using mirrors perfectly, of the fantastic decor. Service and food were excellent and it was easy to make, and then slightly modify, the reservation. If there is anything I'd want to change, it would be to add some noise-reducing material to the ceiling because it was pretty loud once the place filled up. And this place is good enough that you should expect it to be crowded when you're there!

    As always, the food (and presentation) was excellent. My dining partner and I both found the temperature of the room a bit on the chilly side, though, and it seemed louder than usual (especially toward the end of the evening, the piped-in music kept increasing in volume - perhaps a subtle request for diners to finish and leave, but not welcomed by those of us tryng to have quiet conversation). Our waiter was attentive and helpful. and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We also appreciated Sotto Sopra's ability to move our reservation back (twice!) after we ran into unexpected traffic delays on our way into Baltimore.

    Beautiful restaurant. We were seated quickly at our reservation time but waited a long time for someone to help us at the table. We finally asked someone and they told us there was a mixup with the servers. Once that was corrected, everything was lovely. The wait staff was terrific and they comped us both drinks and dessert for the initial confusion. The food was really delicious. I’d go back again for sure.
