We had a celebratory dinner at Sotto 13 a few weeks ago. The place exceeded my wildest expectations. Sotto 13 really delivers FTW. The fresh pappardelle pasta in the Fresca entree was drool worthy and continue haunt me food dreams. The fresh pasta was tossed with a light tomato sauce along with leeks, zucchini, asparagus and mushrooms. The wood-fired pizza was spot on and the server was quick to appease. We asked for the Di Parma pizza with light red sauce, the pizza typically comes sans red sauce. What arrived as not a Neapolitan pizza, but a light, thin but not too thin, pie topped with red sauce, mozzarella, arugula and proscuitto di parma. I prefer it this way. For tasters, try the grilled octopus and chickpea fries. How can you go wrong with chickpea fries? A silk smooth delivery of chickpeas in a crisp vessel.
There's indoor and outdoor seating. We sat indoors under the skylight. The servers are attentive. The seating is comfortable. The noise volume was agreeable. The food was delicious.
My only reservation? This little piggy wished there was more octopus in the grilled.
