I rarely give five stars to a restaurant; in fact, this might be the only one I found in Toronto. First, the ambience: a fairly small, elegantly decorated and candle lit adult restaurant in the Yorkville area. Excellent service, very well prepared food, primarily Italian with a great many fish choices. (was particularly impressed with the freshness and variety of... More

If I lived in Toronto, Sotto Sotto would be my go-to neighborhood restaurant. The food is excellent. The space is small and cozy with a fantastic menu and down to earth servers. If you are visiting, or live in Toronto, you should eat here...you will love it.

Excellent menu. Best bucatini since our trip to Italy. Cosy and intimate space with great service. Extensive wine list with varied prices.

After having read all the positive reviews about Sotto Sotto, my friends and I decided to go there for lunch during the week. When we got there the place was empty, save for the staff and the owners. Perhaps we arrived just after the lunch rush? At any rate, we chose to sit in the front area because there was... More

This small below ground trattoria has the same feel and ambieance of a local favorite neighborhood restaurant that you can find if you get away from the tourist traps in Italy and around other parts of Europe. The staff feels like an extension of a family, no pretensions here. You my be in the heart of Yorkville but the service... More

Sotto Sotto happens to be a popular pick for celebrities living or visiting Toronto. Why? Because the service, atmosphere, food, location and value are unbeatable. A sophisticated aura and excellence in all area's front to back, you can't go wrong at Sotto Sotto!

This is one of the best Italian meals I've had in Canada! We came here for a business dinner, and they gave us a nice secluded table by the front window. It was near the door, but the curtains successfully blocked out the cold, and made us feel important. I tried the risotto, the calamari/seafood insalata (amazing), and the seafood... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant and it was just as good as the first. Very low lighting which makes for great atmosphere. Food was perfect and service was very professional. So romantic!
