Delicious and amazing as always!
The food was incredible, our server was very friendly and very knowledgeable of the menu. We will absolutely be back.
Everything was fabulous!
We dine here frequently because we know that our expectations will always be met! The current menu feels a bit in-transition right now and unfortunately many of our favorites have been removed but I'll be eager to try their Spring/Summer selections soon. Hopefully the octopus will make a reappearance. I'm sure they're sick of hearing about it, but it's so highly requested for a reason!
We drove an hour to have dinner here, the website definitely sugar coated this place. The service was great, the food and wine not so much! The portions of food were not worth the price. Our favorite part of the whole meal was the bread. We looked forward to the pasta window, but they weren't making pasta when we were there. And we actually stopped for food on our way home because we were still hungry. We do not recommend it, and will not be returning.
Loved the short rib ravioli.
Love this place!!
My dinner tasted like salt was just poured on it. I wanted to live Sotto but wasn’t as good as it’s hyped up to be.
Everything was perfection! Love that they offer modifications to suit you best. Could not have had a better experience and meal!
Anniversary! Excellent all round!
Food was top notch, as expected, and why we keep coming back to Sotto for special occasions. However, for the first time our service was below par and the first time ever I have not given 20% for gratuity. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu and drinks yet serving was left to be desired. It took quite a while to get our drinks and our entrees- the entire night. Towards the end it appeared the runner was more conscious serving us than our actual server. We ordered bread that was never delivered yet when we asked the runner it was brought out right away and taken off our bill- which we weren't sure if that was a nice gesture or because our server forgot to ring it in an hence why we never got it. Yes, the restaurant was busy. However, when you notice other dinners getting their drinks and food at a faster pace than you, especially being seated after you, its hard to chalk it up to being busy.
As always, Sotto was fantastic! The server accommodated our food needs, brought us wine to try to be sure we liked it, and the meal overall was amazing. The ambiance is always so lovely. What a great way to celebrate a birthday!
Creative dishes, delicious food, and exceptional service.
Outstanding way make a good impression. Sotto is still the best.
We absolutely loved our dinner here! Mercedes was amazing and we will definitely be back and request her.
We always love coming to Sotto! The food is excellent foremost. The experience is only enhanced by knowledgeable and courteous waitstaff, ambiance, and environment.
Don’t skip out on the donuts!!
Delicious food. The best Italian in Ohio.
excellent ambience, excellent food and service. great casual or dress up place for special occasions.
We had dinner at Sotto on March 6th for my mother's birthday, what a phenomenal experience. The food was delish and Patrick gave us great service. We had the Truffle Pasta, a folded stuffed pasta, pork cutlet with lemon and caper sauce, arugula salad, and pear gorgonzola salad. We also shared the pannacotta dessert and another chocolate mousse dessert plus house-made orancello. Everything was fantastic, it was refreshing to dine in a loud, boisterous setting. It was a really fun evening that will not be forgotten.
What a fun evening! Great all Italian wine list, outstanding food and amazing service by Hillary! Yasss!
Don't miss pork tonnato and giardiniera! We will be back for sure. Grazie!
Peter, our server was more than wonderful! Food was fantastic
We enjoyed a beautiful dinner at Sotto on Sunday evening. The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. We then visited for lunch a couple of days later and we were again impressed with the food and service. It couldn’t have been better. The best we have experienced in Cincinnati.
The food was delicious. It is a tavern-type setting and the noise level was pretty high.
Food was amazing and the server was incredibly helpful. It served as a wonderfully romatic pre-engagement dinner. Very impressed and will be back.
Amazing food.. Great atmosphere
Family birthday celebration; Casey, our server, was fantastic. Sotto is our favorite place!
We had an excellent experience at Sotto. The food was decadent and delicious and our server was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly while providing attentive, yet not overbearing, service. We will be back.
Tasty food,nice ambience .Outstanding service.No wonder it is no. on Cincinnat Magazine's top 10 restaurants for 2019.
With all the hype this place gets, I was left very disappointed. We went to celebrate a birthday and while the service was great, the food not so much. We tried the meat tray, which i thought was going to be meat and cheese, but its just meat, and mediocre. The bruschetta is good, but I've had better. Our waiter recommended we try the pastas "family style" so we all ordered one with the intention of trying a bite or 2 from everyone's because we knew they were small portions. We ordered the cacio e pepe, short rib cappellacci, rigatoni con salsiccia, and the pappardelle. They were all extremely salty (except the cacio e pepe due to one of its main ingredients being pepper) and just okay, nothing to rave about. The best one out of the 4 pasta dishes we tried, was probably the cacio e pepe. The best dish is the breaded pork loin which is not what i would have expected, but tried a bite of it and it was delicious. We decided to try the doughnuts because people raved about them, and they did not disappoint. They were probably the highlight of our meal sadly. As much as people recommend this place, i had high expectations. The pasta dishes were just okay, but very salty. It is overpriced for the portions and overall it was all just okay. The service was great, and they even cooked a filet from their sister restaurant, Boca, for a member of our party that was doing a low-carb diet. Overall, service was 5 star, but food not so much.
Love it but a little dark to see menus
Perfect !! Wonderful experience all around !! Thank You Kindly.
My husband and I were out for date night. The food is absolutely great! and the atmosphere is very romantic. I would recommend to friends. Thank you Sotto for the great food!
Girlfriends birthday! It was great!
Sotto was delicious as usual the other night! Tried the prosciutto arugula and Lanza di maiale and blue oven bread with 4 types of olive oil which were all tasty starters. Had the short rib cappellacci and tajarin con tartufo which were both super spectacular! The apple fig crostata was a great dessert. The service from Peter was wonderful! Can’t wait to go back!
My husband and I were stunned at the level of detail at this lovely restaurant. The food was very high end but the ambiance didn't feel stuffy. It was an amazing experience!
Awesome experience. Brian was our server and we let him pick our entire meal from his choices. It was incredible and he even brought us an item our two that was not on the menu. Great food, great atmosphere and great service.
How could I give Sotto anything less than 5 stars? Every time I dine here, I am blown away by the quality of service and food. I seriously have never tried anything here that hasn’t been phenomenal, and that’s a tall order.
We went for the food which was decent. The wait staff was great. The ambience was nice. The wine selection was pretty good. My wife loved the doughnuts along with the caramel and chocolate sauce for dessert. I had the aglio e olio for dinner and it was a little on the salty side. My wife had the Breaded Pork Loin and was good but not fantastic. I struggle to see what why it is so hard to get a reservation for this restaurant.
