Wonderful. Our favorite Cincinnati area restaurant. I’ll admit to being a little obtuse regarding some of the Italian dish names, but have never had a misstep to date. Someday I want to go back to the bar and indulge in one pasta dish and a drink - a perfect place for such a mini meal!
Great food - homemade pasta and the best salad. The atmosphere was amazing and service was excellent!
I'll start off by saying that I had probably one of the 3 best dishes I've EVER eaten. That should tell you something. The grilled octopus appetizer had so much flavor and texture I didn't want to stop eating it. It was that good. Service was impeccable, all food was delivered with a friendly attitude and pleasant conversation by the kitchen staff, and every touchpoint was handled gracefully, even amidst COVID regulations. Ambiance at this restaurant is very romantic, and the only reason I dinged it a little in my ratings is because we were at a table very close to the kitchen and line, so there was more noise there than in the rest of the restaurant. My wife and I each chose a pasta dish and they were both prepared with excellence. This is a great special occasion restaurant, or serves well as a place you might want to take someone to make a great first impression. Both times we have been here have been 1st rate.
As always, everything was great. Service was top notch and friendly. Food was exceptional. Without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Cincinnati.
Sotto is fantastic! My husband and I go to Sotto every year for our anniversary. The atmosphere is romantic, we always receive excellent service, and the food is to die for. They even helped us reschedule when our reservation was too late due to the new COVID curfew that was put in place just a few days before our reservation.
We have dinner here once a month and appreciate the service every time.
Everything was amazing - The service, the food, the ambiance. You have to get the ricotta donuts and my glass of Chardonnay blend was incredible. Wish I could’ve stayed there for another 2 hours!
This was our first time to Sotto! We thoroughly enjoyed our food, service was amazing! Our waiter educated us on the Italian menu which was very helpful so we could thoroughly enjoy our first visit to Sotto!!
Amazing dining experience! Nichole is a gem! You helped make it a special evening to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Thank you!
Great food, great service. Great assortment of food choices. Staff was very knowledgeable and attentive.
My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Sotto and had the pleasant and delightful experience we always do.
Likely the best food I’ve had in Cincinnati. Would highly recommend!
Loved celebrating my Birthday here!! Thanks for the amazing food and wonderful service.
We came for our anniversary during the pandemic and e both felt very safe! We kept our masks on walking to our table and any time the waiter stopped by, and felt comfortable taking them off while eating/drinking. Sotto is always a special occasion for us and I’m glad we were able to come still during these crazy times! Food, wine and dessert were delicious as always.
Wonderful food, ambiance, and service. Worth every penny to celebrate a special occasion. They take care to make sure that the whole experience is elevated and flawless.
An amazing experience!!!
Went for my fiancé’s new job. Sotto is always wonderful and we love every visit. Food was delicious as always. This visit was great just with a few minor hiccups. Server was not the most attentive, and just seemed very “new” to the job. Overall sotto is always phenomenal and would recommend even if it was awful service
We went there for my niece’s 15th birthday and they made us feel so special! They also noticed I am expecting and gifted us gelato and a Sotto onesie. 🤗
They brought dessert with a candle and really helped make it a special name
Great time and even better food. The waiter was very helpful in showing us what the best options were and answered any questions we may have had. Will definitely come here again. I also recommend the steak!!
Food was amazing , dark/romantic atmosphere, waiter was helpful with the Italian menu
Always a great experience!
Introduced someone that had never been... safe to say they have another fan!
Good food, knowledgeable serving staff, great attention to the customers
Came here for a date night and we had the absolute best time! Everything from the atmosphere to the food to the service was fantastic. My date and I are from Nashville so we were hoping to have a fun getaway weekend in Cincy (where I'm originally from) to have some good drinks, food and fun. Lauren, our server, made for sure that happened at Sotto. She was great!! My date and I are both in the service industry so we really appreciated having such an awesome server and amazing food. We will be back soon!
COVID or not. Always spectacular. Our pick for the best restaurant in the city.
Servicers are excellent, very knowledgeable. Very enjoyable dining experience.
Always an excellent evening with delicious food, fun cocktails and outstanding service.
The pasta is superlative...the cappellacci is always a winner for the carnivores, and the branzino is always a lovely preparation. Salads are fresh, tasty and not overdressed. And the bread is delicious. Service is always friendly and knowledgeable. Just go here already!!
Amazing food, as always. We had the goat cheese app, Caesar salad and brisket and noodles. We finished off with the delicious donuts. Only positive comments on every dish!
Sotto never disappoints! The food, the staff and their private wine selection were fantastic. We had a new server, Brandon, our last few visits...he is attentive, charming and he researched our wine profile before our arrival!! We will request him going forward. We can’t say enough about the Falk restaurants!!!
Another great Sotto visit! The food was amazing, as always! Service was wonderful, our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and could describe/answer all of our questions.
Prior to covid; we dined downtown at least 1 time a month. We finally were able to secure a reservation at Sotto's for a Friday night. It was awesome!! We felt very safe and the food was amazing! Our waiter was terrific.
Thank you for a beautiful evening! The service was perfect and the food was delicious. This was such a great date night spot.
Absolutely outstanding food quality and service!
We dined for a birthday and it was a very nice dinner, food was excellent and service was wonderful per usual.
Great dinner and loved the food. Hillary took fabulous care of us and ask to sit in her section. She has been here from the beginning and knows the menu and wine very well.
I love how semi secret the restaurant is,if you drive too fast you’ll pass it ! Lol The ambience was lovely and romantic. I ordered the steak tar tar which was really good with the bread. The Caesar salad was tasty as well just slightly over dressed. I can’t remember the names of the pastas we ordered , nonetheless they were just ok as they were slightly bland and undercooked. I’d like to come back for the Branzino.
Server was a bit rude, she rushed us and did not make our experience enjoyable. She needs to leave a table and not check In every five minutes/felt very rushed-not a good experience.
Wonderful food, service and atmosphere! We highly recommend Sotto for special events!
