The restaurant was recommended to us as one of Toronto's great restaurants! We booked for my birthday hoping to have a great date night! We arrived at 8.15pm and by 9pm we had been servied both starters and entres! The food tasted very basic and I could have made better food at home. The atmosphere was nothing great but the... More

I ordered the chef's seafood special. The tuna could not have been more than 1.5 ounces and was overcooked despite the waiters comment and suggestion to have it seared which I of course requested. It was accompanied by one shrimp and one scallop (both small/medium sized ). Appetizer octopus was good but the carpaccio was really very average. Service was... More

Hard to get a reservation in this small but quaint old style Italian bistro but popped in on the off chance and was sat immediately. Staff charming and friendly and made me something that wasn't on menu. You pay for the quality but well worth it

Pricey. Very pricey. But extremely delicious. Start with one of their antipasti or smaller pasta dishes. Then move one to one of their seafood dishes--their specialty. We spent $200 (including one drink a piece) for 2.

if you're in Toronto and have time, make reservations and definitely check this restaurant out! we went there to celebrate a birthday and had an amazing time, the chicken and fish were extremely flavourful and fresh - we will definitely be going back here.

I has the pleasure to book my 50th birthday party at Sotto Sotto for a party of 13 people. The dinner was fantastic. Odilia handled all the dinner planning for a 4 course custom menu with excellent wine pairings. The food was fantastic. The dinner service from Spencer was attentive, helpful and relaxing for me as the host. All my... More

We had a very large group for dinner and Sotto Sotto did a great job. They spent the time ahead of time to customize the menu which made the service very efficient. The caprese salad was outstanding with very fresh and tasty mozzarella. The main was grilled fish with a vegetable garnish. The dessert was a scoop of gelato with... More

Made a reservation and showed up on time with two colleagues. We are all professionals. While waiting at the tight space out front, a well-to-do fellow and his date passed our party, and a family with a small child just in front of us, stared us in the eyes, and made the comment to the manager/owner (who knows) "it must...

I want to thank you for your comments, both positive and negative. I always appreciate & encourage customer feedback, as it allows me to improve in areas we may be lacking in from time to time. In my 22 years in business I have experienced a few hiccups during service, albeit it is quiet normal in the service industry, I... More

Visited the restaurant as a special family event. Found the staff nice and helpful but the restaurant itself is nothing special. Cesar salad was dry and uninspired. Appetizer tray of grilled veggies and shrimp was good but pricey for the taste it provided.Grilled sardines were dry and overcooked.. Pasta was decent but not particularly flavourful. The scallops were the only... More

One of the best. Pricey, but you get what you pay for. Everything, every course, every detail, still the same as it was 6 months ago, a year ago, and even 5 years ago. Fresh delicious ingredients, and the most tasty seafood you'd ever had. It's worth the visit.
