Sotto is a wonderful place for a nice dinner. It is a bit loud and dark but that all adds to the atmosphere.
Sotto is our special occasion restaurant. Service, ambiance, and food were very good, and have been every time we've dined at Sotto. Overall, very good experience. We will be back!
Visited from out of town. Super cute space , small but delicious menu, wine list wasn’t anything special, we ended up getting a bottle of sparkling brut Italian rose, which was delicious! . Overall cute place, moderate prices and good portion sizes, I’d return again!
Food just a little off this time
However felt it was very poor form charging $2.00 for chili flakes for each person.
This was eventually removed from the bill but only after voicing disapproval
Also 3x mark up on wine was a bit much
Sotto getting just a bit cocky with their success
The wait staff was absolutely incredible.I wish I remembered her name, starts with an "M", recently graduated UC with a degree in Anthropology, has a new puppy.... Anyway, she really took the time to explain the food, how it was prepared, what she liked (and didn't like). She shared her experiences with the staff and restaurant as a whole so that we really felt like we were getting the entire experience. I would hire her in a minute.
The restaurant is below ground, the lighting and ambiance felt like we were in a very nice wine cave in Napa (where we live). Good good Cincinnati for having such a cool place to eat.
Great bar, stellar service, had the best steak I’ve had in a decade. Mercedes (our server) was friendly, helpful, and really on top of things. Best anniversary dinner in recent memory!
Patrick our server was wonderful. He made sure we would have no surprises when we ordered and steered us perfectly! Our meals were superb. Great experience
Kale salad amazing
The food was delicious, as expected. The ambiance was great, being downstairs and in what looks like an old time bar area. Fun place.
Food was delicious and the service excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a nice dinner.
Another exceptional dinner at Sotto, daughter in from college and she chose Sotto, everything and everyone was perfect as usual, two, no three highlights from the normal stars, he prosciutto wrapped mellon, the tuna with capered mayo on toast appetizer and this simply amazing apple fig tart with a crust unlike any other I’ve ever had, really that good, after trying my daughter wouldn’t eat any more doughnuts, her favorite, because she didn’t want to lose the taste in her mouth! Until next time
Our waitress was amazing, probably the best server that I've had. The food was fantastic, the only small critique I would have is for there to be more affordable wine prices, being on a budget I feel like we had to stick to beer in order to not spend an arm and a leg.
Such a special place with fresh food. Each item was well thought out and tasted amazing. I would almost just come to Cincinnati just to eat here. It was so unreal how good it was from the wine to the black kale Caesar to the cappelicini (not sure how to spell it) to the fresh donuts. Definitely one of my all time favorite restaurants!!!
We are thoroughly impressed by Sotto. The food was incredible and the service was terrific! We came in for our anniversary and they helped make our special day even better! Thank you! We will definitely be returning!
Our waiter was outstanding!! We were supposed to be celebrating my parents 50th but my father was unable to go due to his health so I brought my mom. Our waiter Ryan was sooo nice and went above and beyond to make the evening special for my mom!! The food was amazing as always!!
Everything great. Do not prefer the music. It seems jarring in that atmosphere
If you want to eat Italian food and your brain to explode from all the deliciousness, you have come to the right place.
Wonderful all around!
The service was excellent! Staff was super friendly and attentive. The food was to die for! I've never eaten a steak that just melts in your mouth! Must try the ricotta donuts when there! I will definitely be returning next time I'm in Cincinnati
Special touch of birthday year remembrance sheet. Excellent service- savory food-the donuts always a favorite, with great wine pairing. Fantastic evening of celebration!!
Great food. Great service. We had a wonderful time.
We don't normally go downtown for dinner unless it is a special occasion, so my husband's birthday was the perfect opportunity. He's also part Italian and was eager to try the cuisine.
The ambiance is what makes this place truly unique. Tucked down in the cellar of the restaurant Boca, Sotto reminded me of the hideouts of the bootleggers in era of Prohibition. But with a classy updated twist.
The food was good, but not fabulous, and I though their menu was minimal. The cocktails were delicious and not over-priced. I would recommend going there at least once to try it, but we will probably not return.
Brian took excellent care of us. He walked us through the whole menu and helped us create a shared tasting experience. I've wanted to try Sotto for a really long time but always thought to book my reservation tik late, this time I booked over a month in advance. Book early!!!
Amazing meal and service! We celebrated our anniversary and it was absolutely perfect!
The food and service were outstanding! Don’t forget the house made Limoncello...
Yummy truffle pasta, everything was good quality. A tad expensive honestly. But yummy, needs more wine by the glass.
The food is always amazing and love the delicious donut at the end of your meal. Yummy
It was our first time here, and we cannot wait to return!
The best service and scenery! The food is amazing and fresh!
Perfect evening excellent service and our server really helped make sure we made the best selections. Everything from apps to dessert was delicious.
Fabulous dinner! Wonderful waitress! Could not ask for more!
Our server Ryan was AMAZING. It was a night out with old friends and he made it special. The food and cocktails were delicious.
Disappointed in new menu. Our selections did not reflect the previously delicious menu.
Amazing as always! One of the best places to eat! We love Sotto!!
Impeccable service. Extraordinary cuisine. Charming atmosphere.
OMG every single thing was amazing - pasta, risotto, the donut dessert!!!!! Great drinks. My vegetarian friend and my non-vegetarian self both LOVED this place on our visit to Cincy.
had a fabulous time celebrating tonight- Bryan thank you again!
This is the absolute best restaurant!!! At least as good as Italy, maybe even better!!!
Service was perfect. Food delish.
Love the food. It’s just always so delicious. The music was quite loud for 1130am on a Wednesday.
