Description: BOOKING IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. We are closed from 1st-14th August, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Easter Sunday & from 1st-14th January. Situated just a few steps away from the Roman Baths, our attractive and atmospheric restaurant is located in a charming candle lit historical cellar of natural Bath stone with vaulted ceilings throughout, and resembles the cavernous cellars of an Italian grotto.The main characteristic of our cuisine is its simplicity. We rely on the quality of our ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.We also like to offer traditional Italian dishes with a contemporary twist because we strongly believe in those 'Sapori' (flavours).With our finest ingredients coming from Italy, and all of our fresh vegetables, seafood and meats sourced locally, we are able to ensure high quality dining that will exceed your expectations.

Everything was perfect from the start till the end. Food is full of flavours and staff was very attentive. One thing to mention is that if you group of eight and more you will have to preoder and you can't choose what you want as they will send you a menu with selected dishes (the expensive ones). But luckily it was Monday and they were not very busy, so could have choosen what we wanted.

My friends and family wanted to go somewhere special the night before my wedding, saw the reviews online and thought we'd give it a go. We went for dinner on a busy Friday night and loved everything about this restaurant! Amazing food, service and atmosphere! I really did not think the food could be quite as delicious as its the raving reviews, but it really was. Everyone finished every single bit on their plate. We live an hour from Bath, but we will definately make excuses to come back again. And again. And again!

There are so many restaurants in Bath and it is always very difficult to choose somewhere good to eat but you must try here. The food ambiance and efficient service all combine to make a very good dining experience. We ate a variety of food, lasagne pizza and salads and were impressed by all of it, the service was friendly but not familiar which is always good. What are you waiting for, book a table! I dont work for Sotto Sotto if you are asking!
The prices are also not as high as other lower classed establishments.

What an outstanding advert for Italian food this restaurant is. We have been lucky enough to sample the varied and memorable delights of food in Italy on many occasions but this is without doubt the best place we have tried back home. The variety of dishes offered on an impressive menu is superb and the quality and authenticity of the ingredients is worthy of mention too.

Dishes are influenced by a number of Italian regions and many will be familiar to fans of Italian food. They are prepared with care and attention to detail, presented well and deliciously executed. I had the sauteed chicken with Italian suasage and it was exceptional - fiery and flavoursome just as I was hoping (not a subtle dish!). My wife had linguine with seafood and both the pasta and fish were fresh and delicious. Extras like freshly baked bread served with high quality olive oil and balsamic at the start of the meal only add to the impression of a restaurant run by people who really value the heritage of Italian cooking. The complimentary glass of limoncello at the end of the meal was a lovely touch.

The restaurant itself has an inviting atmosphere, partly from the location itself which is secretive and romantic but also because of the welcoming team running it. The staff could not have been more accommodating - warm and attentive with a good sense of humour. We only wish we lived closer to Bath so that we could make a more regular habit of visiting this delightful restaurant!
