Sotto Cinque

Welcome to Sotto Cinque; a character charm of eclectic décor - sultry red walls, exposed brick and dark furnishings, emulating rustic easiness. Our bar and dining room allow for a variety of dining options and get-togethers. We invite you to an old style Italian dining experience, dotted with ivory sconce lighting and candles on the cloth-clad tables; where conversation, down to earth Italian comfort food, hand-selected mix of music lightly seeps in from the bar, and our service reigns supreme. The new menu screams for hungry guests! The substantial selection of entrées and pastas is not for the shy. You come here to thoroughly enjoy a good, hearty meal. A few new favorites include: Osso Buco – slow-braised veal shank, rich gravy over risotto, and our signature Rigatoni Cinque – with peas and prosciutto in a light pink sauce. Over 70 well-priced bottles of diverse wine-selections from Italy and all over the world, make you look twice, before choosing. Don't forget - we deliver!

"We were so sorry to see this local neighborhood restaurant close its' doors. We always enjoyed it!
We hope that they will reopen in another location at a time in the not too distant future!

"Food was fantastic and reasonably priced. Quiet even though it was crowded. Had the linguine pescatore and all of the seafood was perfectly cooked."

"Stopped by for dinner on New Years Eve. Things were a bit slow but we were in no rush.
The special menu was very good. I ordered the avocado/shrimp starter and the fish entree. The entree was delicious. The starter was horrible.
I was stunned when the dish came out. At best, there might have been some shrimp "flavoring" added to the dish but no evidence of shrimp present, at all. Very disappointing."

"I was a regular customer here for years but stopped coming because the cooking wasn't as good as in the past. I went with a friend tonight and ordered something that is no longer on the menu. It was delicious and my friend also enjoyed her meal. It was crowded and the servers seemed over worked but we met a new hostess, Anna, who was delightful. All in all it was a very pleasant evening."

"Went here with my husband and friends prior to an evening of excitement. We wanted a place that was small and cozy with minimal noise where we could chat and enjoy good food.
This place had it! Staff was friendly, food service from ordering to table placing was in a timely manner and the wine list divine.
Will be back soon!"
