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.

So glad I followed the TA advice. Lovely decor, excellent food, good service and reasonable prices. A great placeto meet friends for a casual meal. Wild mushroom pizza was nicely thin crusted and delish. Chick pea fries with sun dried tomato pesto was yummy.

Enjoyed dining al fresco at this casual Italian restaurant on the West side. Great pizzas and pastas and good wine. Just don't expect the dishes to come out at the same time!

Don't think you're going to find a better place to sit and relax than this one. Our server was great, and the food was even better! Best part is the all you can drink Prosecco (get the DIY Prosecco bar), mimosas, bellini's and other brunch booze. On a quiet street and outdoor seating, go there!

Sotto 13 was just a few steps away from our holiday rental apartment and we couldn´t resist their brunch offering. In fact, we couldn´t resist it twice. This has to be the best value brunch deal ever. 2 (large) tapas and a side dish each plus unlimited cocktails - what´s not to like.

We really felt like old friends here - the waiter remembered us and brought our Bloody Marys without being asked. That´s what I call service. If I ever get back to New York this will be my go to for a brilliant brunch.
