Have now visited here on twice both times for lunch. First time was the better experience as even though the service is good it wasn't as good second time around. However, that was only minor. Lovely place which doesn't look that appealing from the outside but is really special once you get down the steps and into the restaurant. Definitely... More

This was one of the best meals we have ever enjoyed in any restaurant. The food was just divine and the service was amazing. What a surprise to find this quality of food in an Italian restaurant in England. Reservations are a must, we almost did not get in and we tried to book the day before. To our great... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful lunch here in Bath. The pasta was delicious. You could tell everything they do is made in house. The dessert of the profiteroles with the limoncello was absolutely sublime! My husband's chocolate mousse was perfection. The cookies they served with the dessert wine were absolutely delicious. You won't be disappointed. Carlo was... More

We made the reservation with Sotto Sotto by email and Antonio has confirmed promptly and gave good advice for dressing. Actually no special dress code coz the atmosphere was very relax and comfortable there. We had dinner on Sept 4 while we travelled to Bath. Antonio and other staff's warm welcome really impressed us. The food was in high quality... More

We visited this restaurant on our last night in this wonderful city after reading that it is voted the #1 Italian restaurant in Bath. We definitely were not disappointed, the waiters were extremely welcoming after advising us it would potentially be a 45min wait for a table as we hadn't booked, we were seated within 10mins. The food was delicious... More

We have been in Bath for 9 years and this is by far the best restaurant we have experienced. The food is exceptional, the ambience is fantastic, staff are very friendly and welcoming. Has a five star feeling without the price, very reasonable for the quality of food, will definitely visit again!

This place certainly deserves its #1 reputation in Bath. We went here for Sunday lunch with a friend today. The food was excellent and the service very friendly. The staff seemed knowledgeable and they genuinely seemed to care. Several guests in the restaurant had birthdays today, and each was treated to a small cake, candle and a rendition of "happy... More

This is our second time at Sotto Sotto and again it has exceeded expectations. Friendly, attentive staff, stellar cuisine. Fresh ingredients show in tasteful combination of ingredients, even in dishes as simple as Bruschetta where the olive oil, garlic and tomatoes are clearly the best. This is hands down a place to go to when in Bath. Call to make... More

Reasonably authentic Italian food, served with style and flair… Friday night, young buzzy look (cellar) and feel, numerous warm, helpful and attentive staff, high quality ingredients, simple plate structure - little works of art that can be eaten with the eyes and slowly savored… all at a cost that represents good value. However, why is it that nothing is ever... More

I can understand why this is the number 1 restaurant in Bath. Having made a reservation 3 months ago to celebrate my Husbands birthday tonight we were not disappointed. In fact I would say we were elated. The service was excellent and the food outstanding, the swordfish was exquisite. The subtle acknowledgement of the birthday was a lovely touch. We... More
