Description: 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.

We came here on Wednesday night for dinner. Love the atmosphere! It is below Boca and is very interesting. Our reservation was for 7pm and we were sat immediately. We ordered drinks-wine and bourbon. Our server made some recommendations and we took them-all great choices. We took the recommendation for our server-he recommended trying something from each section and sharing. We had the goat cheese bruschetta, then the polenta, a pasta dish and the fish. For dessert we split the doughnuts. Everything we had was fabulous!! And we had amazing service-he knew the menu well and explained a lot! We had a table that looked down into the wine cellar. Great place-it is hard to get in-make reservations well in advance!

At the recommendation of our waitress, Kate, our party of seven ordered 4 dishes from each section of the menu. The small plates came out with perfect timing, every one of which was delicious. We ended the parade of delectable small plates with an amazing sliced steak that was the perfect dish to share. The food, fun cocktails and service were all top notch and the cool vibe was second to none (and I live in NYC and have traveled to may cosmopolitan centers of the world!). The show stopper was the hot fresh oversized donut holes that appeared at the end of the meal with multiple sauces. These were truly the highlight of an amazing meal- especially with the salted caramel sauce. They offer wine tasting evenings, for which we will be back. I can't commend Sotto highly enough!

We had a coctail at the bar first which were nicely poured and tasty. We had delicious food and wine at our table where we all ordered something different and shared which is always fun. Sam, the manager was a wonderful host and made sure we got a tour of the entire workings of the restaurant. It was a lovely night! I have suggested it to many and can't wait to return.

Loved the melon salad, honey bruschetta, garlic cheese, and the breaded pork. Did not like the kale salad was too salty or the pasta (way too much cheese). Mercedes removed the pasta from the bill which was amazing customer service!

By accident, Sotto became our place to compare other restaurants for food quality and value. We love great food and basically Sotto is the best food for the dollar we have found. We routinely try the latest trendy places, and when we compare them to Sotto, Sotto wins. The food is very good. Please try Sotto!
