We rely on the quality of our ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.We also like to offer traditional Italian dishes with a contemporary twist because we strongly believe in those 'Sapori' (flavours).With our finest ingredients coming from Italy, and all of our fresh vegetables, seafood and meats sourced locally, we are able to ensure high quality dining that will exceed your expectations.We invite you to have a fun and relaxed dining experience with us.Service hours are as follows:Lunch hours: 12:00-14:30.

From the moment of arrival, everything is perfect at this stunning restaurant, you are greeted by the friendliest people you could hope to meet (It is as if your best friends have invited you over for dinner). The ambience was fantastic, lovely lighting and underground. The food was superb for myself and my partner and was delivered in a prompt... More

Well thanks for nothing, Tripadvisor reviewers. Can't comprehend how this place has scored so highly. The restaurant lacks atmosphere, service is perfunctory but the food is the biggest disappointment - bland in the way you expect US Italian cuisine on cruise ships to squeeze all the flavour out of your favourite classics. Not an experience I want to repeat.

We phoned ahead to book and were able to get in but I would suggest you book as Sotto Sotto is an intimate space and the food is worth queuing for so book! We were greeted by smiling and welcoming attentive staff as we were seated. The atmosphere is cosy (underground so cool on a hot summer day). The food... More

What to say about Sotto Sotto.. except excellent! I booked the restaurant for my husbands birthday, and the only hiccup which can always happen was with my reservation. Thankfully it was sorted and we were given back a table and let me just say I'm glad we spent his birthday here. You don't only go to restaurants for great food,... More

We ate here last week. Sotto Sotto have been #1 in Bath on this website for a quite a while now, and they should receive great credit for the attention to detail they've put into every aspect of their guests' experiences. It's clear that there remains a determination not to let standards slip and to maintain a steady stream of... More

My husband and I spent 2 1/2 weeks in England to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Of all of the restaurants we visited, Sotto Sotto delivered our most memorable meal. Due to its popularity and the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor prior to our visit, I made a reservation. In doing so, I mentioned that we were celebrating our... More

The food really is outstanding but what makes this place even better is the service. The waiters have got the perfect balance between helpful and attentive without being too intrusive and over bearing. I had prawns to start and then a perfectly de-boned sea bass. My husband had lamb which was cooked to perfection. The complimentary shot of limoncello was... More

Absolutely loved the restaurant, the atmosphere and the staff were very welcoming indeed. What a great location! Also of course the food was delicious, and we both had an excellent time - we were there for a birthday lunch, and you made my fiancee feel very special, so thank you for that! We will definitely be visiting again.
