Our second visit to Sotto Sotto and we booked a long way in advance to guarantee our table. What can I say - utterly fantastic food, exceptional staff who are friendly and so attentive. They surprised us with a beautiful dessert knowing it was our anniversary, a touch which shows their attention to detail. A unique setting for a restaurant... More

Having read reviews, my husband an I had our heart set on dining here while on a city break. We were so disappointed when we were unable to get a reservation for our stay and were put on the cancellation list with no luck of a call back. Our B&B owner suggested we turn up on the off chance they... More

After a superb Birthday meal at Sotto Sotto I felt it nothing but necessary to write a review on this oh so wonderful place. My girlfriend and I started off at the bar with a bottle of prosecco. The waiter ensured that we were well looked after and topped up our glasses constantly ensuring they were never empty. Antonio and... More

The restaurant was fully booked last time we visited and now I can see why ! Great food, perfect service all at a very reasonable price. An absolute must if you are staying in Bath.

Having read many of the reviews we obviously wanted to visit Sotto Sotto. When I called (quite far in advance) they were fully booked but put me on a waiting list. I made other arrangements (just in case!) but thankfully on the day we had wanted they had a cancellation and they phoned me. All members of staff were extremely... More

From start to finish, it was clear why this restaurant is number 1 in Bath. We were greeted by very friendly waters who created cocktails just for us and then led to the main restaurant which was lovely- understated but special at the same time. The waiter was attentive without being pushy and the service was outstanding. We particularly enjoyed... More

I booked a table a week in advance, and the only availability was 6.30pm. This wasn't a problem, but it does show you need to book early. And there's a reason for that: Sotto Sotto is superb! We were given complementary water without asking, and they kept topping it up throughout our meal. We ordered a bottle of wine, and... More

This is possibly the best Italian restaurant that I have eaten in outside of Italy. Don't be put off by the basement entry. It is very well done inside, great lighting. The food was exceptional and the service attentive.
