Using only the freshest ingredients Sotto Sotto offers a considerable menu of simple classics and traditional creations. To start there is an abundance of wonderful salads and antipasti. Pastas are available as a second or main course dish. Main courses feature veal, beef, seafood and poultry and there are also "risotto for two" options. We also serve delicious gelati and desserts including homemade tiramisu made in the time honoured traditional style of the Rocca family.

The staff is so engaging and friendly, they really seem to want to know that your experience is top notch. The food was superb, exquisite, so wonderfully flavoured, and the wine they paired with my meal was spot on! I really loved their home made sausage and would eat that again! The pasta was the perfect consistency, firm enough, but... More

Sotto Sotto survived to tell the tale and the food and service remain very much intact. It is definitely not for the budget conscious but taste-lovers will be enthralled. My wife recommends the Dover Sole and I had an excellent spaghetti carbonara. Wine list is fulsome. Nice job, Sotto Sotto!!

Dined as a party of six. We were seated upstairs in a booth. A bit cramped but this is not an issue in Toronto. We had several issues with both the food and the service. We each ordered an appetizer, an entree and dessert, along with several bottles of wine and we were left with a tab of $1100 and... More

We've been to the old location just down the street that burned down. The food here was great. One of the best steaks (Mushroom Truffletta) that I've had in some time! We all had a great time. Nice food, decent friendly service and good location. Worth the higher price!

Several nagging issues didn’t totally ruin the evening. We reserved a specific table many weeks in advance. We confirmed our specific table reservation the day of our arrival. When we got to the restaurant we were told we could not have the specific table even though it was not in use at the time. We were given a table upstairs... More

Have been here multiple times but not since the fire. Really looking forward to going back. The food is always stellar as well as the service.

Went to celebrate a special evening. After a long time away from this restaurant, we were "welcomed" by a bartender who was quite rude and smirked when I asked for nuts with my over priced beer. I was told that there were none-but watched him eat olives, while we waited for our table. The food was good-but not great. If... More

We saw the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to try this place out. Though many talked about it being crowded, we found the atmosphere pretty good. Our server though made us feel a bit rushed and made a mistake on our order. Though he was happy to change and make it right, we ate what was served but felt... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
