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.

Highly recommend this restaurant! I am so glad this was our last Hurrah Meal! Before the closing due to COVD19. Service was excellent and we noticed the great attention to detail as always. BTW they have the best cocktails in town! Hats off to their mixologists!

Sotto is one of the best restaurants in the world. I have been about a dozen times now and it is consistently the same amazing quality in both food and service.

Really enjoyed the food, portion sizes, ambiance, and service. Music was a little too loud for me, but maybe better when there are more people.

Amazing food, great service. Can get expensive, but for an occasional treat, it is well worth the price.

Had a quick working lunch at Sotto. Food and service was great! The only challenge was the noise level...hard to hear each other across the table.

Took a client to lunch with co-workers. Usually we enjoy the food. The service was outstanding-except he did not ask for drink orders, I had to ask for a club soda-everyone else just had water. The bread and the goat cheese with hazelnut honey were good starters and the donut at the end I always a treat. One of my co-workers asked for gnocchi as an appetizer and the server was able to get the chef to make it even though it was not on the menu HOWEVER instead of being small gnocchi pillows of deliciousness it came out in one big glob! Weird to say the least. My salmon was cooked well but I did not like the bed of flavorless faro and beets. One of my co-workers had the Panini and he indicated it was not very good. One diner did enjoy his cappellacci with short ribs. I was disappointed in Sotto for the first time I had not eaten there for about a year with this same client when it was much better.

Cacio e Pepe is a must starter plate. The short ribs ravioli and the branzino were excellent. Patrick is an excellent server!
