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.

    We are from Columbus, heard about Sotto and booked a reservation 4 months ago. Sotto was fantastic!! From the minute we walked in the service was outstanding. The food was incredible and our server picked an amazing wine based on what we said we liked. The prices are extremely reasonable. Hands down one of the best experiences we have ever had.

    We were really impressed with Soto. It is legit, not just another “fancy” restaurant trying to be fancy. The food and service were as excellent as the reputation predicts, if not better.

    Best food I have ever eaten. The environment is very cool although the music doesn’t seem to fit the space and makes it hard to talk without talking loudly. It was still amazing.

    This is a superb restaurant and I’d highly recommend it if you’re in Cincinnati! Our server was delightful and she took extra time to guide us through the menu. I have to say that she’s one of the best servers we’ve ever had at a restaurant. I wish I remembered her name. The food here is divine. We started of with the bread and olive oil appetizer. Both the bread Ava olive oil were excellent. We had the insalata salad, also excellent, fresh greens and appropriately dressed. We had the borbolotti all’ amatricana… exquisite, perfectly cooked pasta which was perfectly sauced. For secundi, we had the pork chop which my husband and can’t stop talking about. We had the ricotta donuts for dessert and I had the dessert cocktail (I can’t remember name). The donuts were cooked to order, light and fluffy. The accompanying sauces were perfectly sweet. The drink was delicious too. The only negative comment I can make is that my husband and I question the choice of music which was fairly loud and didn’t seem to fit the ambiance of the restaurant.

    My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. The staff was so amazing and they brought us a complimentary glass of champagne for us to celebrate.
