After trying to make a reservation for months, we decided to take one final look and found a reservation on the day we wanted to visit. Plus we were seated at our favorite table by the wine cave❤️. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. Loved our meal.
Everything was wonderful, as always! Kyle did a fantastic job with answering any and all questions my family had, checked in on us just often enough without being a bother, and was always there when needed. The food was amazing! Looking forward to coming back as soon as possible.
This is by far the best restaurant I have ever been to. In addition, the level of service amazing, Evan was an amazing waiter. I can’t wait to come back in the future next time I am in Cincy. We had the goat cheese bread, oil tuna bread, short rib pasta, sea bass and for dessert, donuts! Yum!
Great place to have our family Christmas dinner, my wife and I and 4 kids between 11 and 19. Our server was fun and energetic for the kids, and the chef even stopped out and watched us play our Christmas Gift Card dice game..... A great experience for my kids... they are still talking about it this morning. So hard to get a reservation, but so worth it when you do. Thank you for the hospitality, the great food, and the great atmosphere.
Finally got a chance to go here for dinner! Super cool spot with really good ambiance. Our waitress was awesome, very attentive and knowledgeable about everything. All the food we ordered was on point and delicious. The fresh Ricotta balls with dipping sauces was a good way to end a great meal!!!!!
It was our first time at Sotto. It had been highly recommended. The food was every bit as amazing as we had heard. Our server did a fantastic job going over the menu and making recommendations. Definitely make reservations well in advance.
Excellent all around. Will definitely be going back.
Hostess was friendly, Noah was amazing, bartenders made delicious drinks, Chef was cool and shaved the best truffle for us, and the cooks were all working hard on the delicious food. We had a great time here as always.
From the ambience, our server, to the food. Sotto is one of the richest experiences I’ve had the pleasure of taking in. They welcome you and guide you through all aspects of the menu along with the storyline behind the ingredients that complete it as well. It’s so intriguing to see the level of passion and craftsmanship the kitchen team endures to make it all possible. Thanks again for a mind blowing experience.
Sotto is a beautiful restaurant, to put it simply. As you walk through Cincinnati, you nearly miss the door as the place has a very "hidden in the cellar/speakeasy" feel. You walk down the stairs and notice the exposed brick and candlelight with a swift greeting from the host. We were immediately seated and from this point on every step of the way was amazing. This was the finest dining experience my family has ever had together, making our birthday week and my sister's graduation an extremely special memory. The concept of this Italian restaurant is family style eating -- ordering many dishes and sharing. This experience was well complimented by the service, the food, and the crescendo of the different meals being brought out. I cannot say enough about this place. Very special experience!!!
The food was utterly amazing! Sotto never lets me down. The experience the food takes you on is worth every penny. Your palette will thank you!
The pasta is a bit overrated there wasn’t anything insanely good the bread was burnt. however the ambience service and desserts were great so it wasn’t a bad experience.
Excellent food and excellent service. Noah was very knowledgeable and made fantastic recommendations
Excellent service. Our waitress was so friendly and kind. I am so appreciative of every experience I have with Sotto.
Our food was fantastic as always and service was above and beyond! Love Sotto so much!
We love Sotto! Great food, attentive service, and a lively ambiance.
Food and service were amazing as usual.
Sotto never disappoints! Our server Meg was wonderful. We had Aronoff tickets and she knew exactly what needed to happen to get us to the theater on time without us feeling rushed. Drinks were delicious, food was delicious, and wish we had time or room to have dessert. We will definitely be making another date to come back and try other dishes and dessert.
Always excellent! Server was delightful and helped ensure we made our show ontime. There was a special on truffles that was to die for
The food was delicious. The service was great; Pat (male) was friendly and made us feel welcome - a special thanks to him. My wife and I had the bronzino (sp) fish that was expertly prepared, but it deserved a better presentation on the plate. I could do the same "family" presentation at home. Overall, we enjoyed the evening and the craft cocktails. I had a glass of the house red with dinner; I was surprised and the quality of the wine.
Service was excellent. I have Celiac disease and was pleasantly surprised to have so many GF options to choose from and very knowledgeable staff. Our meals were excellent, will definitely be returning!
Great overall experience. Will be back!!!
Sotto is an amazing dining experience. Their food is of the highest quality and absolutely delicious (great drinks and desserts too)
Sotto made my birthday evening so amazing, food was amazing!
It was my mom’s birthday. I love this restaurant, the service is really good and talking about the food, 100% recommend. The best Italian food
Awesome experience with great food and excellent service! Will definitely return.
Delicious as always! First time we tried the breaded pork loin. So good.
Delicious as always!!
Food was very good. Service was very good. A little loud for us but the candle light added to the atmosphere. We both feel like we rushed them through the service because we were on our way to see Wicked at the Aronoff. We both want to go back!
Place is top notch. Waitstaff is fantastic, food is fantastic, ambiance fantastic.
Food was amazing and so was our server. Wish I could remember her name- had short blonde hair.
Our server was wonderful and the food was amazing!
Food was delicious & dessert amazing!
Excellent & unique food matched by top notch service!
Our first time at Sotto and it was my husband’s birthday. We couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate. The food is just as amazing as we’d heard and we were so full that we had no room for dessert. The server still brought him a candle on a plate so he could blow out a candle and make a wish. I would give ten stars if I could. We’ll be celebrating many important things here from now on and we’re already looking forward to next time.
Sotto truly is a dining experience! Very unique. Certainly expensive to dine there on a regular basis, but well worth it for the experience and food!
All around phenomenal
Best ever always. This has spread all over chowdown and has become a favorite for a reason
The lamb was exquisite, I would recommend it 10/10
We love coming to sotto for special occasions! we came to celebrate my girlfriends 23 birthday and the food was delicious as always! we started with the bread and oil which was great as always! my girlfriend ordered a drink from the bar that was delicious! we both ordered short rib capalleci and we ordered the breaded pork loin to share. the short rib pasta is still my favorite food in the world and literally melts in your mouth! the pork loin was fine but not show stopping. we enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant but always feel almost like the servers don’t want you there which is okay, but for such special occasions and the price range the service should be so outstanding. we shared the donuts for dessert and they put a cute candle on the plate! the donuts are so amazing definitely do not skip those! overall a great evening!
