After reading many of the reviews we had to be certain to try Sotto Sotto on our next trip to Bath. So booked a table months ago via e mail to be sure of a table on a Friday night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. And of course we had a great evening. There has been enough said about the...

My husband and I try to eat in this restaurant whenever we visit Bath. The food is excellent, as good as anything I've had in Italy. The service is the outstanding, very attentive staff, an absolute delight.

We visited Sotto Sotto on one of the hottest days so far this year and were greatful of the cool cavern style setting. Our waiter delivered 5 star service, explained menu items to us, and there was a little surprise or two for us as we were celebrating an anniversary. We were lucky to get a table, (early pre theatre... More

My girlfriends and I had a lovely experience and wonderful dinner at Sotto sotto tonight - from the time we walked down the steps to when we had to ascend back to reality. We arrived 15 minutes earlier than the reserved ETA, and were greeted very warmly by Carlos. Manuel gave excellent service waiting on us - he's so sincere,... More

My niece, a mere "slip of a girl" (by that I mean young) said we should try this restaurant for my partner and her twin sister's birthday! Uhm, I thought (in my stereotyping way) and what does a 19 yr old know about good quality food? Well, I must confess, if this experience was to go by, loads and loads!... More

Tucked away in a beautiful underground cavern, this is a proper italian restaurant with seriously nice food. Super attentive waiting staff made the evening effortless. Great value for money (I had a lamb rack which I'd have made go two ways at home!) brilliant pudding - and for three courses with a bottle of wine it was easily £30 less... More
