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.

    Came here for the first time with my dad who was visiting out of town. He forgot his glasses and was using his camera to zoom in on the menu. The waiter came over with a pair of loaner reading glasses which was absolutely AMAZING! My dad was so grateful and then proceeded to order everything on the menu. Everything came out to perfection and was absolutely devoured. Ending the night with the ricotta donuts was **chefs kiss**

    A huge shout out and many, many, thanks to the superb kitchen, servers, and management working at Sotto on Tuesday night (5/15)!! Thank you for helping make my daughter's graduation celebration one to remember, even after the ceremony went past our reservation time. Everything about Sotto was and IS splendid--our food/desserts and drinks were amazing, the service spectacular, and the restaurant ambiance beyond words. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    We were able to get Sotto reservations the day of by using Open Table’s notification of cancellations system, which was very helpful. Our server Jason was absolutely perfect, in that he was always attentive without being overbearing, informative and aware of what we what we’d need soon before actually needing it. The food was phenomenal as always and cheaper than most fine dining restaurants in Cincinnati. This is why Sotto is our favorite restaurant in the city. Highly recommend the pork loin, all the pastas, and budino dessert.

    Amazing food and romantic atmosphere! Every single dish we ordered was fantastic. We ordered the goat cheese and honey bread, the black kale caesar salad, bombolotti all'amatriciana, cappellacci, breaded pork loin, patate, and the ricotta doughnuts. Wine and cocktails were great too! We can’t wait to come back!!

    Cole was an amazing server. He was so nice and knowledgeable about the menu and gave recommendations. It was clear he really enjoys his job and really knows the restaurant. The food was delicious and came out very quickly.

    I’m just disappointed with my experience versus all the hype before I visited. My fish was very run of the mill, but fine. They forgot one of our sides, but then brought it when we told them. The steak was good. The drinks were weak but fine. I just expected better than “fine” with everything and with the pricing. The kicker though, the server knew it was my birthday… afterwards I was talking to a friend who asked me how the complimentary donut dessert was… I was never offered that. 😕 sigh… oh well. Bummer.
