Food is excellent. On the street and valet parking. Fine Italian dining worth going downtown for. They have Opera night 2 times a month that is fun and worth the extra money.

We had tickets to a show at Royal Farm Arena so I was excited to find a nice restaurant nearby. When we arrived, it took a good 5 minutes for us to be seated so we just kind of stood there. It was 5pm and there was hardly anyone there so wasn't sure why it took so long. For appetizers,... More

A few evenings ago, we visited Sotto Sopra for dinner before the symphony. This is not a place where one wants to rush for dinner - it's much too nice. The food is always fabulous and needs to be savored. The server assured us at 5:45 that we would be done by 7:30 and we were. My friend and I... More

If you don't crave a chain restaurant, want a genuine Baltimore experience and do crave top quality Italian food, this is a great choice. Sotto Sopra has a very unique and exicitng menu that is not cliche Italian and is not over the top new age or wierd. I have never had an average or mediocre meal here. The food... More

We chose Sotto Sopra because of the many options for Restaurant Week and so glad we did. The decor is elegant, service top notch and the food!!! Beyond delicious!!! We kept asking ourselves why had we not visited before this? Truly a fine dining experience that I know we will enjoy again.

We arrived at Sotto Sopra for our 6:45 P.M. reservations to find the restaurant bustling – it was packed for Restaurant Week. The hostess apologized that our table was not ready. It seems the guests were having such a good time that they were not leaving. We can understand that. Riccardo offers one of the finest menus for Restaurant Week... More

Italian finer dining with family and Sotto Sopra dining during restaurant week made for a great choice! The three course menu had more options than common for restaurant week, and it was the menu of the evening. Really appreciated that variety and the upscale approach that enabled the wide array.

We thoroughly enjoyed this farm to table Italian restaurant on a recent visit. The food was delicious and was presented beautifully. For example, the Caesar salad was served upright in a phylo dough cup. It was dressed perfectly! I wish we were in town to enjoy their price fix Opera night dinner or the $20 two course lunch. Will definitely... More

A great authentic fine dining experience in downtown Baltimore. Very friendly wait staff, well made dishes, nice Godfather atmosphere. We had a nice bottle of wine suggested by our waiter and a delicious entree. I'd go back any time.
