“Voted Best New Restaurant”
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. Voted the best new restaurant in Cincinnati by CityBeat.
Sotto is amazing. The service was on point, I sat at the bar for dinner and the bartender was extremely helpful in food and wine selection. Every food item was delicious and the pasta is handmade on site! Also the atmosphere and lighting is really cool and unique, definitely set the tone for an all around incredible dining experience.
Sotto is the best. I am a huge fan of their menu layout with the breads, antipasti, primi, and secondi (4 quadrants). It makes ordering fun and really easy. Like the servers recommend, it's best to order family style and depending on the number of people, get a few items from each quadrant. My personal favorites (in order of quad) are the Burrata Bruschetta, Arugula Antipasti, Short Rib Cappellacci, and when on the menu, the Braised Pork over polenta. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu as I've tried about everything. And to finish the meal, get the donuts for dessert. They are made with Ricotta cheese for extra fluff and creamy texture - life changing. Finally if you like wine, the servers are well-versed in Italian wines and can recommend something for anyone's taste - all imports.
Delicious, one of my favorite dinner spots in the city. The decoration is really cool, the service is great, the food is delicious and the price is fair. The only drawback I would say is that it's dark and cavernous which makes it a little unappealing in the summertime, but on the flip-side make it that much cozier and awesome in the winter.
The food and atmosphere is damn good but holy shit is this place dark so be careful walking down the stairs!
This place is dark and sexy. Drake and Serena Williams were photographed making out here once. The apps are amazing, and ask them which pastas are homemade-- on your way to the bathroom you can see them making it. And the ricotta donuts for dessert. I die.
Really enjoyed Sotto when I went there the other night. The feel of the place is dark (our waitress told us, lit by candle light so that all you can see is each other's faces, for a romantic feel). The food is unique, nothing like it AT ALL in Cincinnati. Also, I had heard this place was super pricey (which it can be if you do it full throttle) but if you don't get any alcohol and are careful with what you order, you can go there for date-night and get out for $30 a head, EASY. Really recommend this place!
