My wife and I visited sotto sopra during restaurant week. Calamari and Veal saltimbocca were great, but potions were small. The chicken sausage and fennel meal was bland and sub par. Dessert was average. I have heard a lot of good reviews about this place and was excited to try it. Unfortunately I left a little disappointed. it didn't wow... More

Visiting this restaurant on opera night is a most enjoyable way to spend the evening. The restaurant offers a multi course dinner for $58.00 per person. Between courses, operatic singers perform. The quality of both the food and music was excellent. The service was professional and the restaurant is beautiful.

I was inspired to sent this restaurant a shout out because we all know it's a great place for authentic Italian cuisine, but we visited them 3 times during the big blizzard of 2016 and not one single thing was less than perfect so they have their A game on all the time. The chef-owner greeted us and checked on... More

Northern Italian cuisine (not a spot with lasagna or linguini in clam sauce!) in a classy, energetic atmosphere. A great date-night spot for special occasions. If you are staying downtown, it's an easy walk straight up Charles Street. It isn't a place for restless kids, but is great for adults to linger over a sumptuous meal! Check their website to...

Carefully prepared fancy food. Attentive service. Short walk to Peabody, Walters museum, cathedral, Pratt library, circuit court, mercy hospital. Much Longer walk to inner harbor or hippodrome. Pricy.

We visited on June 2, a later dinner. It was excellent! Attentive service, details mattered and the food was fabulous. It's a quieter, more formal dining experience with candles and neat atmosphere. I'd go back for sure!

Sorry "little Italy", this restaurant has you beat. We enjoyed a fabulous early dinner at Sotto Sopra! The atmosphere was lovely and the service professional and impeccable.

Went to Opera night when my mom visited last and it was great! We had a five course meal with singing in between. Lots of birthdays and anniversaries that night, it was a fun night with good food.
