My father and I ate here on a Monday night while before visiting the Roman Baths. We got there at 6pm and were able to get in because we came an hour before they were fully booked for the evening; therefore, make sure you make a reservation! The restaurant is very small, but it has a very cool atmosphere as... More

Thankfully, we managed to book a table at short notice (for our Anniversary) due to a cancelation. The menu choice is excellent - it was difficult to choose just one dish! However, We did! I had the rack of lamb and Linda had the lasagne. I hadn't tasted lamb that good in ages, if ever. The lasagne was a treat... More

Me and three friends visited Sotto Sotto on a busy Sunday evening (31/08/2014) at 18:00 without a reservation. The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. They did their best and squeezed us in so that we could have a table for four. The meal was absolutely gorgeous, cooked to almost perfection and bursting with flavours. A great atmosphere coupled...

It's not easy getting a table but it's definitely worth waiting for. Excellent food & service from all Italian staff, all of whom were friendly. The prices are very reasonable too, we will definitely be back!

We booked this 4 months ahead of time to make reservation for our anniversary. Antonio made sure we had a special table and there was even a congratulatory note at our table upon arrival. The atmosphere is very romantic. Our tuna carpaccio was perfect. The salad with roasted beets was the best ever. My lamb was done to perfection and... More

To celebrate our thirtieth wedding anniversay we planned a visit to the theatre in Bath, but wanted to have something to eat prior to the performance. My husband booked Sotto Sotto after reading Tripadvisor reviews and it did not disappoint. A lovely setting for some truly fabulous food. I had the risotto "special", which was totally devine, and my husband... More

First of all, you do have to go down stairs to get to the restaurant, there is not elevator. The restaurant staff were all very nice, attentive, knew the menu well, made excellent recommendations. The ambience is just perfect, especially considering how close the restaurant is to the Roman baths. If we were going back to Bath, this is the... More
