Description: 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 invite you to have a fun and relaxed dining experience with us.Service hours are as follows:Lunch hours: 12:00-14:30. Last order at 14:00Dinner service: 17:00-22:30. Last order at 22:00

“There is a reason that this place is top on TA for Bath”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We went to Bath for a day trip on our way further afield. Decided to get something to eat before we left rather than relying on service stations! So glad we did, and checked trip adviser for where to go. We didn't have a reservation, but they managed to squeeze us in.
Restaurant is easy to find with the big sign, without it you'd never know it was there!
Service was very attentive, staff knowledgeable and were very positive and passionate about what they do. The food was very good, especially for the for the price.
Couldn't fault the visit at all, and will definitely return the next time we go to Bath.

“Birthday Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Yet another wonderful evening at Sotto Sotto. This time a birthday celebration for my son. I used to live in Tuscany and still go to Puglia twice a year so am fussy about Italian food in UK ! I find the food here is genuinely Italian. The staff are really friendly as well courteous in that Italian kind of way and the menu price is very reasonable.

I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“A Fabulous Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We arrived at SOTTO SOTTO on a miserable, cold and wet March evening. As soon as we opened the door to go inside it was as if the sun had come out. What a wonderfully warm and friendly greeting from the staff. This is a quite brilliant Italian Restaurant - fantastic service, exquisite food and a simply wonderful atmosphere. Restaurants as good as this don't happen by chance. They take a lot of professional skill, planning, commitment and hard work - and cooking of the very highest standard.

Our excellent and attentive waiter told us he came from Verona. When we said that we had been to the Roman Amphitheatre there to watch the opera he was delighted. As we left we met the owner who is a charming and friendly man who is clearly very proud of his restaurant. My wife was delighted when she got a kiss from him !

It was a truly memorable evening.

“superb restaurant- not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

I read the excellent reviews on trip advisor and decided to try Sotto Sotto. We were not disappointed. The venue was excellent, the service wonderful and the food delicious. We booked early (5pm) as the restaurant was fully booked on a Monday evening. No wonder - it was an excellent experience from beginning to end. Not to be missed.

This resturant is superb & the service even better !!
I took my partner here for a valentines meal & was very happy with the service & food, my partner was overjoyed by it & it got me massive "brownie points" :-)
We even got handshakes & goodbyes when we left - nice little touches.
