We have been wanting to go to Sotto for a while and, when our double date plans fell through, we went a family of four (kids ages 9 and 14) and we all loved our experience there. The ambience is perfect - cozy, dark, and...More

We had a business dinner in the room in the basement. Our server selected a wonderful assortment of items to try and presented each item in an interesting way. The service and food were fabulous!

We love Sotto. The fun atmosphere is a grotto feel The kitchen view is fun and the place is always bustling with people laughing and enjoying food & beverage. I’ve never had anything that isn’t delicious there. It’s always constant with great food and service.

Really cool vibe below ground. Very romantic atmosphere. The menu was very limited and for me personally there was nothing I would make a special trip for. I have been there both for lunch and for dinner. Somewhat pricey for portion size. Worth a visit...More

I wouldn't say so. My wife and I wore nice casual clothes, and that was fine. Some people were wearing business dress, because we were there on a weekday.

I am unaware of valet parking for this establishment. We pain at Fountain Square, which is just a block away, and only slightly less. Seems like valet would be worth it.

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.
