Great time from beginning to end. Flew in town and took my mom and met friends there. Food, wine, service...all outstanding. Shout out to Jack who served us.
Delicious as always! Loved the morel dish.
Some of the best and most authentic Italian food I've ever had. Simple, light, and refreshing, with a wonderful assortment of drinks.
Great service and food. Love this place! A real gem.
We had a wonderful experience at Sotto. The food was absolutely wonderful and we had excellent service. We are from out of town but will certainly come to Sotto every time we visit Cincinnati from now on!
Music playing so loud that all the patrons had to shout. The noise got louder and louder that it was uncomfortable to be there. We finally just had to leave. Will not return, no matter how good the food is.
Always outstanding service and consistent food. Among the beat in the city.
This was an amazing dinner! Our waiter walked us through the menu and everything we picked was ah-mazing. Hands down one of the best restaurants in town.
Amazing service and food. Encouraged to eat family style. Had a great time.
Great experience as always
Excellent meal and service at Sotto. Be sure to order the cappellacci. It is simply outstanding.
New job celebration.
We had a reservation and were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time. Each member of the service team was exceptional and the food was exquisite. We had the goat cheese with grilled toast appetizer, pesto tortellini entree for my husband, and branzino (sea bass) for me. We shared the asparagus and patate (potatoes) side dishes, and had the ricotta doughnuts for dessert. We savored every bite. It might have been the best meal I've ever had.
For sure the most expensive meal I've ever had, but also the best flavor food with amazing service. I wish I could afford to eat there frequently!
Soto has never disappointed us.
Super nice, very accommodating for special requests.
My husband and I had dinner at Sotto for our wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful experience! Katie, our server was great. Our food was outstanding and the ambiance is always our favorite. Thank you for always providing us a special place to dine.
Always great. Ambiance is so unique. Food and service are great.
Came here for a graduation celebration. The food is great—everything is prepared well and our server was knowledgeable and energetic. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 because it is like a cave in there-VERY DARK (almost ridiculously so-people were using the flashlights on their phone just to see the menu) and it was quite loud-it was very difficult to hear people talking who were sitting across the table.
Absolutely beautiful and the food was amazing
Perfect as always! My husband and I live Sotto. We don’t get there as often as we would like as it is very hard to get a table but when we do go it is a special treat. Sotto never lets us down. The food is always amazing and perfectly cooked. The service is wonderful and the atmosphere is the best in town. Thank you Sotto!
Sotto is always exceptional. The service is outstanding. The best thing? Donuts.
My wife and I dined at Sotto for her birthday and everything was perfect. By far the best dining experience I’ve ever had.
Sotto is a Cincinnati staple for a reason. The service is excellent, the atmosphere is romantic and the food is worth every penny.
We went there for our anniversary and absolutely loved it. The food is stellar and the atmosphere is romantic, rustic, and cool as hell.
We had a great time! The food was amazing!!
Great food will miss this place when I move
I was very lucky to get a same day reservation at Sotto on a Monday night. (Most likely I tried moments after a late cancellation.) Ever since it opened I have never been able to achieve that victory of a same day reservation - and there is good reason for that: the restaurant is outstanding.
We ordered two appetizers, (the octopus and the "packed in oil" tuna", both of which we can't wait to eat again. We then each had a different excellent pasta, and again we will hard pressed to not order them on our next visit given the other great looking menu items. Our server, Katy, was superb, even to the point of having the kitchen use a different pasta for my partner's pasta dish. The atmosphere is very nicely rustic, with real candles. The noise level is high - the restaurant is full at virtually times - with music that doesn't seem to be necessary. I find Sotto to be fairly priced with an Italian wine list solidly in the under $100 price range. Highly recommended.
Excellent service and amazing food.
Wonderful experience as always! Service was outstanding, food was absolutely delicious, and coordinating with our family to surprise us with a gift card at the end of the meal capped off our perfect evening.
We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Soto! It was perfect for this very special occasion!
The food at Sotto is delicious. The portions are not large, but they leave you feeling satisfied. Service was good, but I felt like they were trying to move us along too quickly (probably to make room for the next reservation). We like to have a slow meal, we asked the waiter to pace our meal, but it felt rushed.
Delicious and great experience with good friends.
This restaurant lives up to all of the hype that it is given! The ambience, service, food and drinks were all amazing! We started off with the bread and olive oil and it was delicious the bread was fresh and soft and the olive oil was so good! We then had the insalta with buffalo mozzerella and proscuitto which was also delicious! We each decided to have the short rib cappellacci which was incredible! The pasta was perfection, the short rib was amazing and so was the white wine sauce and parmesan to finish it off! We finished off our awesome meal with the ricotta donuts which were warm, soft, and sweet, we could not have asked for a better meal and more amazing experience!
A great place to celebrate! Highly recommend the Bond Girl cocktail and arugula salad with mozzarella and prosciutto. My kids think the cacio e pepe is the best in this city. And save room for the donuts!
Another winning meal at Sotto. We've enjoyed Sotto multiple times and are always up to try something new with our standby favorites. This time our new dishes included the polenta appetizer and the short rib pasta. Both outstanding, as always. It wouldn't be Sotto without the goat cheese/hazelnut honey bread and of course the ricotta doughnuts. Service, this time led by Noah, was friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. We'll return next time we're in Cincinnati.
Always delicious! Love Sotto
We split the short ribs and tortellini. It was amazing! The atmosphere at Sotto’s can’t be beat. We loved the donut dessert too!
We are enjoying an after pandemic vacation so we reserved an airbnb in Cincinnati to enjoy some normalcy after a year of isolation.
Soto came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The ambiance was amazing .. the food was excellent and out of the ordinary. We highly recommend Soto as a unique, cozy and an out of the ordinary experience. Enjoy ..
36th Wedding anniversary
Unique experience and delicious food!
