BOOKING IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. We are closed from 1st-14th August, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Easter Sunday & from 1st-14th January. Situated just a few steps away from the Roman Baths, our attractive and atmospheric restaurant is located in a charming candle lit historical cellar of natural Bath stone with vaulted ceilings throughout, and resembles the cavernous cellars of an Italian grotto.The main characteristic of our cuisine is its simplicity. 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 had a quick lunch here, fresh home made pasta beautifully presented, one of the best Pizzas I have ever had in the UK, superb atmosphere, great staff and a reasonable price There No 1 Trip Advisor place in Bath is clearly hard earned and no effort is spared to make your visit excellent. A real gem of a place,... More

This was our second visit to Sotto Sotto and as with our first visit we were not disappointed....... We were welcomed on arrival and as we were a little early we ordered a drink in the bar area, we were then shown to our table and our waiter Guiseppe came and introduced himself. The food was fabulous, very well presented.... More

I think we were rather lucky to be able to just turn up and get a table for lunch. True it was a chilly February Wednesday. We've travelled in Italy quite a lot and this place was certainly reminiscent of many trattorias there. The special we ordered - Parmesan risotto with lamb ragu was terrific. We didn't stay long but... More

Food was very tasty and staff were so attentive. You may need to book far in advance as its so popular but well worth the wait.

We came to Sotto Sotto for a meal on a Wednesday late afternoon after a lovely visit to bath spa. I chose to book here because of the great views so had high expectations from the start. On arrival I was impressed at the setting, the restaurant is set underground with low ceilings, stone walls and lite by candle light.... More

My parents and fiancé took me to Sotto Sotto to celebrate my 21st birthday. I have never experienced such incredible service in a restaurant before. The waiting staff are so attentive. Also, they added personal touches to our evening. When we arrived at our table there was a little card addressed to me wishing me a happy birthday and also... More
