Myself and my husband are anything but foodies but we certainly enjoy the rare night we get a chance to duck away from the repetitive cooking that comes with having picky children and appreciate a well prepared meal. We were on route to an old favourite in the heart of Little Italy when we fortuitously passed a sweet little nook that reminded me of my recent family vacation to Europe. The front door was ajar just enough that I could smell the tantalizing odor of homemade Italian cuisine floating onto the street as I past. We decided to abort our previous plans and headed inside. We were immediately greeted by who we later learned to be the owner. A well dressed, welcoming woman who took our coats and proceeded to take us through the menu. She was polite and patient as we asked her to take us through the extensive wine list. We settled upon a delicious bottle of Ripasso from Italy. For dinner we settled on a few selections as per recommended by the owner. Everything was fabulous, however, the Caesar salad (called the Romana on the menu) was hands down the best I've ever had!! Caesar happens to be one of my personal fav foods and therefore I would not give such an endorsement lightly. This Caesar was tremendous! For mains I had a rigatoni with hot Italian sausage in a black olive pesto. The owner mentioned that this item was new to the menu however it tasted as though the recipe had been carefully perfected over many years! My husband had a simple Spagetti Olio which left him not much for company as he could barely put the fork down! From service to wine to food to ambience Sotto is a sure fire hit! Next date night we will be back!!
