New to Sotto -- had last been in the space when LaNormandy was in operation.
At Sotto for lunch had the salmon - on a bed of goat cheese etc -- it was perfectly prepared, super yummy and a one of a kind.
Service was stellar.
Will be back soon!!
We were an adult family of seven celebrating two anniversaries on our first visit to Soto. Petie, our waitress, was very welcoming and helpful in describing the menu and taking care of a member of our group with a dairy allergy. The food and the atmosphere were outstanding. Our family had a wonderful time and would always enjoy going back to Soto.
Another amazing night at Sotto!!! Best service, beat food!! Love this place, beat in Cincinnati!!!
I love Sotto! One of my favorite places to eat in Cincinnati hands down.
Been dying to try this place and finally got a reservation for Valentines Day. Everything exceeded my expectations. The food was so amazing, I’ve eaten at Michelin Star restaurants in NYC and France and the food here was far more superior. Highly recommend.
It’s a great place to go to once. Portions are tiny and more as trendy place to be seen that a place to get full off a meal. Service was great and friendly though so that makes up for the food.
Can’t speak highly enough about the staff and overall experience that is provided from the moment you enter Sotto. The food is always incredible and worth the wait. The staff are very passionate and make sure you have a good experience. Highly recommend for a special date night. Reservations are needed and book up fast so plan in advance!
William, our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. He didn’t pressure us and made us fee comfortable.
Atmosphere was cozy and unique- perfect for a date night or dinner with friends.
Excellent as usual! Food was top notch as well as the service. Our lead waiter, William, was attentive and personable. Staff was also accommodating as we planned to go to Les Mis after dinner. One of the best restaurants in Cincinnati and it is always a pleasure to dine there!
Meg was an amazing host! We had a delightful experience.
Consistently excellent italian pasta dishes. Desserts are even better.
The perfect place to celebrate a special birthday!
Was a little loud since it was busy and full of pre show peop
Meal was excellent as always. Hillary makes the evening extra special when she guides you through the menu.
Extremely authentic Italian restaurant. A couple flights of stairs down from street level into an area that admittedly was very dark, but lit with candles and other lighting to set the mood. The smells were incredible. The staff was lovely. It was a LITTLE pricey, but for the environment and how delicious the food/dessert/drinks were, it was completely worth it. We’ll be back the next time we come to Cincinnati.
The service was terrific. Marie was very attentive and super-friendly. I have been to Sotto many times; food and service is always amazing.
LOVE Sotto! My go-to, #1 pick for any celebrations, special events, or just a night on the town! I can always anticipate fun, unexpected foods on the menu, like pureed liver atop bread that is DELICIOUS and expands my pallette, as well as crowd-pleasers like the "short rib stuffed ravioli"(my name for it, not the fancy Italian name). Also love that I can keep a meal for two under $60 if I want to be conservative, or I can splurge and spend $150+. I've gone with with a girlfriend for wine and dessert, and I've enjoyed 4 courses with my husband. Literally the perfect place, atmosphere, food & budget for any occasion!
Amazing birthday spot!
The food was wonderful, clean and delightful dining experience. However, our particular waiter was less than desired - but with how long we were waiting for things, my boyfriend and I noticed that other servers were much better than ours. We just got unlucky. We are still planning on returning, just hoping for better luck of the draw in servers
Best meal we’ve had since I’ve lived here for the last 3 years. Unbelievable!! Thank you
Love Sotto, we come here for special date nights, birthdays, anniversary...
We had the fusilli with sausage and the capavetti, both were amazing and the donuts are the perfect dessert!
Amazing as always, we love Ryan!
Not nearly as expensive as I was expecting it to be. Great atmosphere. Server was very friendly, very attentive, but not too overbearing. We had a great time.
This was our first time at Sotto. We had heard how great it was, and we were so excited to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary there. The service was wonderful, the food amazing and ambiance beautiful. We can't wait to come back! Thank you for a fantastic night.
This hidden gem is hands down one of, if not the best restaurants I’ve ever had the pleasure of dining in...fortunately multiple times...rustic European atmosphere, superb service by all staff, and...the food...let me just say that there are few words to describe how amazing the menu is at Sotto. Every flavor melds together perfectly creating a gastronomical experience that leaves you wanting more. Their Capellacci is the unequivocally the best dish I’ve ever had...an unforgettable experience that boasts a divine combination of flavors much like ambrosia, the food of the gods...I can’t recommend Sotto enough.
We ordered the insalata di rucola, cacio e pepe, breaded pork loin w/ caper, lemon, broccolini, and ricotta donuts - all were DIVINE. Wonderful, cozy atmosphere and great staff. I couldn't recommend more!
Fabulous! Can’t say enough positives. Can’t wait to go back
This was my first time at Sotto, I took my daughter after a show at the Taft. So much fun!! Very lively and fun atmosphere! The food was amazing and the service is like no other! Will certainly be back!
Fourth time at this restaurant. Nothing short of exceptional each time!
I have loved Sotto for as long as it has existed. About 18 months ago I marked it down for just being too pricey for what it offered. Now, I've marked it up again, since everything except the prices is fantastic, making me think it's not unreasonable to charge that much. Don't be expecting haute cuisine! But peasant Italian food cooked perfectly is not something I've experienced outside the old country.
One of the best date nights we have had. Hilary, our server, was beyond amazing. Very attentive, extremely knowledgeable about both dinner and wine menus. She made my boyfriend’s birthday a wonderful and memorable experience. The staff from the greetings we received when we walked through the door. The cocktail we drank at the bar before we sat. The incredible dinner we enjoyed so much. Until we finished our evening were fabulous. It was my first time there and w/ our experience, not only will it always be our special occasion go to, we’ll sneak in some other nights as well. Thank you to all the staff, especially Hilary. It was a night to remember!
It was amazing as always
The food was wonderful. We had the black truffle dish for the first time, and I was blown away. The entire meal was wonderfully prepared and the service was outstanding.
Maria was wonderful! Great service great food
The staff went above and beyond. Thank you to Taylor Richter for adding the special touch to the evening!
Great food, wonderful service! An all over top quality experience!
Loved everything about this experience! Fantastic staff and exceptional food. Sotto rocks!!
