Living downtown, I am extremely lucky to be so close to this fantastic restaurant! It is always such a crowd pleaser when my husband and I bring out-of-town people here. Their menu is incredible -- there is nothing that I have ordered that I don't...More

I've lived in Cincinnati over five years and although I dined at all the top restaurants downtown, OTR, and in surrounding communities, I never dined at Sotto primarily because it is always booked weeks in advance. I finally had the forethought to book a table...More

My wife and went to Sotto for a date night. The food was excellent, the service friendly and efficient, and the location has the feeling of a secret hideaway. We'll return for sure.

Great ambiance and staff was great. Food was okay but the wine was divine! The location is perfect if grabbing a show downtown.

Very neat from the moment that you walk in and go downstairs and it is like entering a secret subterranean vault. Dark and low ceilings and very Gothic like. The food is good and very unusual Italian dishes. I cannot explain this place to you...More

Had the Branzino. It was outstanding. Fresh and perfectly prepared. Great wine and our server was truly outstanding. Restaurant is dark and noisy but the food is worth it.

We visited with a group of 10 for a 50th Birthday celebration and the venue was perfect. They have a room that will seat 10-12 comfortably and it is completely isolated from the rest of the restaurant. Our server was very helpful in recommending dishes...More

There is Valet on 6th Street in front of Nada's. I believe they cover Soto's as well. I don't know the pricing.

It is a concept of casual intimacy and communal romance.Sotto is the art of simplicity, a steward of restraint. It’s undressed, gutsy and human. It is fire, meat, wheat, and laughter.Above all, Sotto is Italian.
