Sotto Sopra Ratings and Reviews
This was a very enjoyable eating experience. The ambiance is very nice and the service was outstanding! The food was amazing! I had the cippino which was incredible; plenty of seafood and a delicious broth. My wife had the scallops that she enjoyed but you only get three... Four would have been better. The ficacci bread was awesome, I could have eaten it all night. We will definitely come back to try other menu items. It's a great place for pre-theater dining as it is close to the Lyric. Thanks for everything!!
My favorite restaurant in Baltimore. Like every other time we've dined here, the service and meal were outstanding. Derick, our server, was spot on with every recommendation from the veal chop to the wine selection. With him as our server, this may have been our best dining experience ever at Sotto Sopra.
This was our first time at Sotto Sopra, it was our Third Wedding Anniversary and we wanted to go to a place we both had never been before, someplace Special.
First of all our waiter, Patrick was more than knowledgeable and attentive, he was very friendly and just delightful. ......The food was very authentic Italian and very Delicious. I would highly recommend this place and we will certainty go back.
Took my wife out for her birthday and a lovely dinner at Sotto Sopra did not disappoint. We shared fried polenta as an appetizer which was delicious. Her veal with pasta was delicious, my sacchettini stuffed with pumpkin was exquistite. We had an excellent Gavi from the modest and well thought out wine list to complement our meals. The service was on par with the food.
So nice to have a little traditional jazz trio while dining in one of Baltimore's best restaurants. The food was exceptional, and the presentation pleasing to the eye - but better on the palate. This is the place to go for a special occasion, and trust your wine selection to the staff. They are knowledgeable and trained. Our service was excellent.
A GREAT restaurant --I haven't been in at least 10 years but the food was as delicious as ever. My mother and I were in town for appointments and had only 50 minutes for enjoying our 2 course lunch special because we were running late. It was no problem for the staff. We were comfortably out the door in about 45 minutes! Thank you!
Have been here a couple of times, once for the Opera night. This time we were going o Easter vigil mass at the basilica. Meal was excellent, Fettucine Capreese. You could tell the pasta was freshly made and the sauce was perfect. Also try the olives as an appetizer and the mushroom soup. Classy place and great for a special occasion.
We went to Sotta Sopra for a birthday celebration. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. One of us has some severe allergies and restrictions, and he could explain what food would be suitable or not. The food itself was outstanding. We had the cheese and salumi grand tasting. The portions were generous and the quality was excellent. Main courses: ravioli, fettucini with osso buco, seafood medley. Everything extremely well prepared.
Always a great choice - now in it's 22nd year, Sotto Sopra has been a favorite of ours since 1997. An innovative and changing menu; delightful staff; great ambiance; a regular roster of live music performers (opera night; jazz; Broadway and standards). Ricardo Bosio keeps the place evolving and a place you want to be and belong.
We came here for dinner to celebrate Sotto Sopra's 21st birthday. There was live (not too-intrusive) music. There was a vibrant crowd of fun-loving patrons. Food and wine were up to the usual, very high standards that we expect at, this, our favorite restaurant. For special occasions, you cannot go wrong.
We dined at Sotto Sopra to celebrate the restaurant's 21st birthday. The music was fantastic (Hot Club of Baltimore accompanied by chanteuse Alexis Tantau). I had the halibut which was fresh and perfectly prepared, served atop roasted Brussels sprouts. My husband loved the chicken stuffed with fennel and sausage, accompanied by crispy mushrooms and little potato cake. The ambiance is always festive there, but even more so on this special occasion. You could feel the love for chef/owner Riccardo Bosio and his team radiating throughout. It was a magically delicious night!
Sotto Sopra never disappoints. This was my fourth time dining here for dinner. I am some what boring and get the same dish every time (it's that good), the pappardelle de telefono. If you like authentic pasta with fresh and sweet tomato sauce with fresh buffalo mozzarella, I HIGHLY recommend this dish. It's to die for. The service is great here. This trip the server was very busy and did not explain much about the menu or tell us about any specials, but since it was busy, I get it. However, when you're paying above average prices, the server should always take a few moments and talk about the specials and make some recommendations. That was my only minor complaint.
Highly recommend Sotto Sopra!
Great staff, attentive and pleasant. All the dishes were very good and recommended wine pairing was spot on. The waitress had a smile every time she walked by, made us feel as if we were in Italy. She arranged to split all the shared dishes in the kitchen for a relaxing tasting menu. Great spot for Center Stage pre theater dining or a day at the Walters Art Gallery.
My daughter purchased me "Chef for the Day" gift certificate for Christmas💗 My girlfriend and I teamed up to use the opportunity to raise money for Avon Breast Cancer Walk. Chef Riccardo, Linsey and his entire staff were welcoming and wonderful! We felt like family in the kitchen and the restaurant!
The food is as memorable as cooking in the kitchen with my grandma and the Chef for the Day experience was like a trip to Italy without the long plane ride!😍
Homemade Fettuccini was overdone & in a sticky , hard to separate wad at the bottom of some pretty decent, meaty osso buca ragu. Wife's Kanpuci fillet done with herbs, aeromatics & wine baked in a parchment pocket was nicely done, tasty. I was pouring our own wine, as server was not too attentive. (Restaurant was by no way busy, early on a Sunday evening). In our opinion somewhat overpriced for the food and service.
We have always been extremely happy with our meals at Sotto Sopra. The food and service have always been excellent. The daily specials are always great. Our server was also well versed in the available wines. We brought friends who had never been here before; the can't wait for their next visit to Baltimore and Sotto Sopra.
