Lively atmosphere but shockingly easy to have good discussions without losing your voice. We sat in a corner booth with 6 comfortably. Menu was limited but covered a selection of courses for vegetarian and meatasauraus. Food was excellent from beginning to end. The Ricotta Donuts...More

Sotto is one of the best restaurants in town. Just amazing dishes, fun atmosphere as long as you don't mind a noisy setting.

Great food. Tremendous service. Terrific space. My only complaint: the red-wine-by-the-glass offerings weren’t that good (I had the Super Tuscan and then the Cabernet). I’ll have to go back and try again.

Sotto is an amazing restaurant! Our entire experience was wonderful. The service was prompt and friendly. The food is out of this world, and the wine is excellent! I highly recommend Sotto!!

This restaurant is a must! The food is amazing and you can tell that everyone that works there takes pride in their food. The service is exceptional. They listen to want you like and don’t like to help recommend food.

I wouldn't say so. My wife and I wore nice casual clothes, and that was fine. Some people were wearing business dress, because we were there on a weekday.

I am unaware of valet parking for this establishment. We pain at Fountain Square, which is just a block away, and only slightly less. Seems like valet would be worth it.

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.
