BOOKING IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. We are closed from 10th-16th 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 recently visited Sotto Sotto for dinner, we were instantly hit by the enthusiastic, happy looking staff! We were greeted by smiles by all we met! We started off with a caprese salad and large mushroom (can't remember name) for starters. The starters were delicious, beautiful, soft buffalo mozzarella. For mains, my wife ordered lasagna which was delicious, beautiful flavor,... More

We got a call to say there was a cancellation for our group of 5 on a Saturday night. The fact they took my number and then followed it up was great customer service, which continued right through the actual visit to the restaurant. The welcome from all the staff was great, as was chatting to them afterwards. The food... More

Sotto Sotto is an Italian gem hidden in a coal cellar made of brick and stone under the ground. Although it is pretty small, it is really warm and cozy. The food was excellent, especially the fish, that was really fresh and delicious. The service was fast and the waiters were really nice and friendly. As a demanding Italian food... More

Great Food and Excellent Service. The cozy setting is perfect for a special occasion or a romantic evening. We went for my Husband's Birthday and he was delighted with the "Happy Birthday" piped on his Dessert plate!

This restaurant exceeds it's high expectations that has been set through trip advisor! It has a unique atmosphere which makes you feel special and welcome into their restaurant. The staff are so attentive and the food is the best Italian food I have ever tasted. There is no room for improvement here, I hope they never change the great way... More
