Italian
It is a concept of casual intimacy and communal romance. Sotto is the art of simplicity, a steward of restraint. It’s undressed, gutsy and human. It is fire, meat, wheat, and laughter. Above all, Sotto is Italian.

Amazing food as usual. Service is outstanding. Our server even gave us a parting gift as we are about to give birth to our son in a few weeks, it was a cute little onesie with “sotto” written on it. What an amazing date night.

Sotto made sure my boyfriends birthday dinner was one to remember. We were surprised and delighted from start to finish. The team was very genuine, down to earth, and knowledgeable, the food was phenomenal, and the atmosphere was beautiful and intimate! Even with COVID regulations, it was an incredibly comfortable and safe dining experience. This wasn’t our first time at Sotto and it certainly won’t be our last.

They were truly amazing, I will definitely dine there again. Everyone was so polite to us and they were very, very understanding at the fact that my party was running behind. The waiter was truly amazing he ensured that we had an amazing night and that my sister (the birthday girl) left with a bigger smile than she went in with. The food was outstanding, everything was fresh and the taste was wonderful. I hope that each time I go my experience is as this one was, now one of the first recommendations when people ask where should they go eat at.

We celebrated our 28th Wedding Anniversary!! We would have liked a more fluid experience with the different courses. Overall wonderful evening!

*We would have loved to hear some Frank Sinatra type music or Italian music.

We had to wear our mask the entire time—the only restaurant or maybe just our waitress who enforced it. We definitely shared all of our plates—there were three of us on a mom’s night out. We ordered three pastas, a bread and an appetizer. The meals are not huge, but satisfying. It’s not that I wouldn’t go back, but it’s not worth the hype.

Fantastic server with lots of friendly energy and absolutely delicious food. The goat cheese honey bread was as crave-able as expected, and the short rib dish was definitely a show stopper for us. Topped it off with the ricotta donuts and a couple of their very drinkable barrel-aged bourbon cocktails. We will be returning!!

All exceptional, noise level in this acoustic deprived restaurant was better than normal due to Covid...having eaten here multiple times my only complaint has been the noise level...otherwise it’s a really nice experience throughout...
