Very good service and we were seated immediately upon arrival. Excellent food.
Having dined at Sotto many times I can mostly only reiterate what I have said in the past: great authentic food at a reasonable price point - which is what makes it in my experience the most difficult table to reserve in town. (For those who like to order sparkling water, the fact that it is free at Sotto adds to value.)
This time we had two outstanding appetizers - an octopus with white beans and a tartare of fossome (beef). with some wonderful grilled garlic bread. We than only had an excellent pasta each.. Service was causal but excellent as usual. The only drawback for us on this particular evening was that the ambiance was not as good as usual due to the somewhat uncomfortable chair I had and the large, very loud group next to us. But these things were minor in the grand scheme of things given how great the dining experience is otherwise. Highly recommended as usual.
Pasta is a must...all made in house. We often get a few to share. I love the dark, cozy atmosphere and personal service as well. We have been numerous times and never have we been disappointed. We were given a treat for our anniversary this time... chocolate gelato. It did not disappoint.
The food is amazing! My favorite restaurant in Cincinnati.
the food was incredible, and our server had great suggestions. i highly recommend both the gnocchi and the gnudi we had, but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu! definitely a great place for celebrations, or a date night!
Excellent food, nice staff. Our order was backed up for some reason, knowing we had to leave for a show at the Aronoff. They finally got our food out to us, so we had to eat rather quickly. Not exactly what we expected at Sotto, though the manager (even though we never complained), was kind enough to take a couple starters off our bill given the situation. We appreciated the sentiment. Great food, we will go back...hopefully for a more relaxing, enjoyable meal!
Bryan W provided excellent service. Also our hostess did an excellent job providing us an great table
This may have been the BEST restaurant experience I have ever had. Wonderful food and service and I can’t wait to go back! Very highly recommend.
Outstanding service and delicious food. Highly recommend.
Perfect evening! Thanks to Will & his team for taking such great care of us.
Overall meal was great but we were looking for a little more quite place still enjoyed our stay
Hands down becoming one of our favorite places to eat. Table 19 with Hillary is the place to be. Food is tremendous!
Food was amazing; 4 Primi to share and 4 desserts to share for 4 people. It was perfect. Bryan/Brian was a charismatic and attentive server. Other server was very loud(?).
Delicious all around! Loved the goat cheese hazelnut appetizer. You must love butter & sweet with the butternut squash - a dessert and entree in one! Short rib rich and tender. Service by Shannon excellent and personal!
We have eaten at Sotto once quite some time ago and it was excellent. Since they have been recognized as a top restaurant in Cincinnati it appears they are resting on their laurels. We were celebrating a special occasion but were seated at a table that was in a high volume Traffic area and next to a table with 2 infants. (Who brings small children to a restaurant like this?)
Although they recognized the occasion when we sat down that was pretty much the extent of the it. The food for the most part was good although I ordered steak tartare and was asked if I wanted black truffles on it as that was a special for the evening. If there were truffles on it they were grated so finely you couldn’t see them or taste them. I also ordered affrogato for dessert but when dessert came it was apple crostata. It had a candle on it so I thought maybe they were doing it complimentary for my birthday. Not the case I guess they just got it wrong. All in all it was an ok experience but not sure it will be a place I would go for another special occasion. It also crowded and noisy.
Great experience, we will be back
Excellent experience as always. Food was incredible, wine and cocktails were delicious, and service was spot-on.
It’s was OK.
One of my best eating experiences in 2019. Had a business dinner and all 8 of us really enjoyed it. The porterhouse was the best steak I've had in quite awhile. The service was also notably exceptional. The only negative was the cold air coming down the stairwell and filling nearly every part of the dining room
Salmon was generously portioned and cooked to perfection. Service was excellent.
My husband and I so enjoyed our dining experience at Sotto for a special night off and super delicious food. We had the table that looks down on the very cool wine cellar and it was so cozy and romantic.
We booked weeks in advance to celebrate a 21st birthday.
Unanticipated, the weather turned fierce, causing commute delays for the majority of our party of five. The staff was awesome at pushing our reservation back at the last minute.
The food is always amazing and filling. Although we've not tasted anything yet that isn't delicious, the cappelacci in particular is to die for - - DO NOT MISS THIS DISH!
As one of our appetizers, we enjoyed the grilled octopus, and it was magnificent!
Our daughter was thrilled with her birthday dinner. Thank you for making her evening special.
Exceptional food! Lovely restaurant. Staff attentive to occasion and needs. Thank you!
Amazing food and service as always!
I took my family, who were visiting from TX, and it was a perfect evening. Food was fantastic as it always is here at Soto.
Had a wonderful dinner with family. Tried a few things and shared them. Really liked the pork tenderloin.
Never leave disappointed! The short rib ravioli is my favorite. Finish off with the ricotta donuts. Yum
The service was excellent. The food was exceptional.
Omg that bread!
Excellent place! A little loud but everything else was perfect!
Visiting Cincinnati for the first time and this was the first restaurant we had seen on open table. Everything was great. Excellent service. Definitely would recommend for anybody visiting Cincinnati. Had the recommended short rib pasta dish and it was amazing!
Appetizers were very good, cappelacchi was salty it would have been so good minus that. We also had the fusilli alla vodka with sausage. It was good but a little bland. Dessert , ambiance , and service were great! We will be back to try another dish!
Wonderful as always, great and friendly staff.
Great table - awesome service and the donut at the end!!
Engagement dinner was phenomenal!!
This place is amazing, I have never had a bad experience and it is my favorite place to go to celebrate a special occasion or to just have a nice dinner! We went here for our anniversary and had the best waitress! She recommended an excellent bottle of wine and even brought out our doughnuts with a candle on them for the occasion! Can't wait to come back again soon!
It was so great! Looking forward to dining at Sotto again soon hopefully!
Went there for a week day lunch. The menu, service and prices were excellent.
Super people and great food.
The walk to the bathroom is scary. But we love your restaurant.
