Sotto Cinque was my Italian go-to local gem for years when I live in the neighborhood. Unfortunately Valentine's Day at Sotto Cinque was a total waste and I will not return.
We were presented with the special pre-fixe menu. I asked if we could order from the regular menu and was told no. Five minutes later, a couple was seated next to us and were given both the regular menu and the pre-fixe menu to order from. Only after I pointed this out we're we given the regular menu.
Ordered a bottle of Prosecco and was brought California sparkling wine. I reminded the server we asked for Prosecco and was told the bottle labeled California Sparkling Wine was Prosecco. (Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine).
I ordered the lobster ravioli and my husband had the chicken parmigiana. Both were served cold, the spaghetti was extremely "al dente" and the sauces had no flavor at all.
The only thing that did not disappoint was the chocolate cake dessert.
I do not recommend this restaurant to anybody for any reason. Bad food & bad service.
