Overpriced. Pretentious menu “nickel and dime”s customers badly. All a la carte. Even bread is $7. And 2 of the 4 in my party didn’t care for their food. Not worth the $.
Love the food, atmosphere and service! Sotto never disappoints!
Great food with cozy, intimate atmosphere. Abby provided exceptional service for our party of six.
This was our first time at Sotto's. It will not be our last. The staff were very attentive to our needs, the plates were bussed off the table in short order. Our waitress, Maria, was ever so patient with us, explaining every detail of the menu and was very helpful with the wine list. The food exceeded our expectations! We got 3 appetizers to share, then shared each others entree. Everything was delicious. I can't say one dish was favored over another, each one was wonderful in its own right. We almost left without dessert until Maria told us about the doughnuts. Do not leave without trying them, they were yummy. We especially liked the caramel sauce, we had to get extra. Though the music seemed really loud when we first got there, as the restaurant filled up, it didn't seem as loud with everyone talking around us. We were not rushed through our meal. The experience was wonderful.
Excellent experience and Hillary was a phenomenal server. She went above and beyond.
Excellent food and great service!
The food was wonderful but the noise level in the small room the two of us were seated in was intense. There was a large party of at least 14 people and a few tables for 2 or 4. We could not hear our waiter describe the menu items and we could not converse with each other comfortably and were basically screaming. Understandably, it is the holidays and the entire restaurant was bustling but I would not want to be seated there again. A recommendation would also be to put a cushion on the wooden bench to add a bit of comfort. That said, the doughnut holes were a wonderful ending to the meal of short rib filled pasta.
The food was amazing and our waitress was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu.
Long waiting, very noisy, food too salty and without flavor. Fish was over cook, vegetables sticky.
Great restaurant! We went here for our anniversary. It was a bit more casual than I remembered, but the food and service more than made up for the casual dress. The food is amazin!
Food was fantastic and the service was spectacular as always. 4th visit and it has been great each time
Excellent team lunch! Could not have asked for a better all around experience! Fantastic service and outstanding food! Thank you Sotto!
We went here for our 1st anniversary. We both loved our meal and shared the doughnuts which were great also. We loved the atmosphere and will definitely be back.
Such great food with a great ambiance. We love going to Sotto for any reason!
Excellent, as always!
The short rib cappellacci is usually awesome but was only so-so this time. About 3-4 of the dumplings tasted maybe like liver. The salads were good. The bruschetta was good. The drinks were good. The service was 'okay', but no one ever asked how any of the food was.
My wife and I recently celebrated our 2nd anniversary by dining at Sotto. It was an excellent choice. Our servers were awesome and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. For starters we ordered the bruschetta and assorted salumi board - everything was fantastic. For our main course we orderd cacio e pepe (very simple but delicious) and the short rib cappellacci (phenomenal - triangular stuffed pasta). All of the pasta is made fresh and in house, and it really shows in the taste compared to other Italian restaurants in town. For dessert, we ordered the ricotta doughnuts (saved the best for last) and gelato (of course, made in house). We enjoyed everything about the restaurant - the food, ambiance, downtown location, servers, and wine. We will definitely be back!
Everything was great. Food service a bit slow but fine!
Our service was incredible. Professional but relaxed enough for conversation. Best meal we’ve ever had. Already booked for our anniversary in May! Totally recommend the short rib and the broccolini
Food and service were amazing, as always. Ambiance is great as well. Perfect for a date night or to celebrate a special occasion.
Wonderful as always!
The food was amazing. Our server Casey was perfect. We went with her wine suggestions and they were spot on. Every food we had was amazing. The ambiance was wonderful. We can’t wait to go back
My daughter recommended Sotto to us for an anniversary spot. We came for lunch and we Loved everything!!! Thank you. We will be back!!!
We held a business meeting here and found ourselves in a corner which was perfect to talk. The food was incredible and just enough to eat. I will definitley go there again for business and pleasure!
Awesome food and awesome service
Great! Seated quickly. Service prompt. Food wonderful. When I found my salmon was more rare than I liked, They had no trouble replacing it promptly and with a smile. It’s top notch.
Lovely lunch service
Our overall experience was very "meh". Our waiter was nice, but the service team did not act as a team so if we did not have his attention there was no one else to really pay attention to us. The food was OK, just uninspired especially for a restaurant with the claim to fame that Sotto has in Cincinnati. The appetizers were OK though the honey goat cheese bruschetta is a bit sweet and heavy for an appetizer. The prosciutto was fine though hardly a 'selection' as advertised. The salmon was fine but nothing I have not had many other times. The rigatoni alla vodka looked like it was plated by my 10 year old nephew.
I just think for all the hype and prices they need to re-focus and kick it up a notch or be relegated to another so-so restaurant that gets by on past reviews. Sorry.
Amazing food! Get the truffle dish! Out if this world!
Really good food. Unfortunately we had an unattentive and somewhat condescending server.
Found on a whim prior to business trip to the Queen City and it did not disappoint. Fantastic food and service - will certainly return any time I am in Cincinnati.
Excellent italian restaurant
OMG! Everything was outstanding! Service food presentation everything!
Perfect experience with excellent food!
It took us 8-10 weeks to get a reservation, but it was well worth the wait! Went with our neighbors & we all LOVED it! Looks like old world Europe, the service was great & all our food was spectacular! Will make another reservation for the next available spot right away. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone who loves Italian food.
Melt in your mouth food.
Music was too loud and our table was right under speakers and next to the noisy kitchen. Will ask for a table in the other side of the restaurant next time.
Best Italian food around anywhere. Great service and atmosphere. A must visit for us at every holiday or special occasion.
Reserved the vampire room for a family get together. Outstanding as usual.
Went here the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving on a date. Ordered a cocktail and a glass of wine each, and one appetizer, one medium plate, and one pasta to split.
The cocktails were excellent and unique to Sotto. The appetizer—the salumi—was way bigger than the usual tiny charcuterie plate we've come to expect and we were extremely happy with it. The rest of the food, including the pasta, was very good and prepared with care.
Docking points on service because our wine came out WAY after our food got there. We waited for the wine so we could enjoy both that and the pasta at the same time, but our food got cold as a result. Overall this place is good—but not incredible as word of mouth would have you believe. What it is is very carefully prepared, familiar rustic Italian food at an extremely fair price. Would go again.
Awesome food and very authentic...it felt like we were wisked away to Italy! Knowledgeable staff! Outstanding!
