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!

Wonderful food and service. The music was too loud for our party; it was hard to have a conversation.

The service was absolutely terrible. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about everything besides the wine being served. He just didn't seem interested in waiting on us. We had to flag him down multiple times to get drinks, order our main course and to get dessert. To top it off when we went to pay he left my card out in the open on the waiters stand. Before I left my seat I was rummaging around trying to see if I was the one who misplaced it but no it was the waiter. The hostess found it and ran over and was very apologetic about it and then turned around and told our waiter what he had done. He then proceeded to avoid all eye contact with us and did not even apologize for just leaving my credit card for anyone at the restaurant to take it.

Service was very poor. Our entree's arrived just after our appetizers. We said we weren't ready so they put them under a heat lamp and brought them back a few minutes later. We were at a small table and then had 4 glasses, a bucket of wine, a bottle of water and 6 plates on it. Very disappointing.
