Sotto Sotto Ratings and Reviews
We waited over 30 minutes for a 9:30 pm reservation after arriving on time. The bar service was awful and there was very little room to stand. You could tell everyone in the waiting area was annoyed and had been waiting longer than expected.
The service was nice and the patio atmosphere was supurb. The food tasted great but when i was torn between two pasta dishes the server suggested that i get an app portion of each instead, without telling me it would be an extra $5 (i've been many other places that do not charge extra for this option). I was annoyed by it upon receiving the bill.
Though the food and atmosphere are great, there are plenty of other places to go in Atlanta where i've had a better all-around experience.
My husband and I came here for a 2nd time. We enjoyed it so much the first time, we had to go back as soon, as we had a chance, after having 2 kids, since our first time here that was only less than 2 years ago. It did not disappoint, very romantic, cozy environment. The porch out back looks adorable, although we didn't request prior to coming so we sat inside, which was still great b/c the doors open completely to the back porch.
Our waiter Jimmy was amazing, Attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Food was amazing, authentic Italian dishes not your Americanize Italian dishes. We started with the Bufala mozzarella appetizer which was amazing and fresh. Then I had the cesar salad no complaints just your typical cesar, husband had Tricolore it was again just your typical arugula salad with lemon dressing. For our Entree we order the Spinach Gnocchi AMAZING, it was all spinach absolute delicious and fresh, my husband order the Bucatini All' Amatriciana he loved it, it was a little spicy for me and we also had the Cacio Pepe e Pancetta which was one of my favorite dishes in Italy, and again this local ATL restaurant did not disappoint. The dishes are so fresh and taste just as if you were in Italy. Cool this about this place is they have half portions so you can actually do your own little tasting.
We will DEFINITELY be back next time we are able to get away. Would definitely check this place out!
The food here is always delicious. I live for their Panna Cotta with the 12 yr aged balsamic, but their risotto and pastas are fantastic. Ordered their Veal Chop this time around and man was it delicious. Well seasoned and perfectly cooked to a med rare. This place just delivers every time!
Excellent service. Host seated us at a bigger table and nice location as the table they were planning to seat us the guests were not leaving. They were very accommodating and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to toast our anniversary.
Food was very good, waiter was very friendly and gave some good wine recommendations. Very enjoyable evening with fantastic food, fine wine, wonderful ambience and simply comfortable cozy restaurant.
Cheers to Sotto Sotto
2nd visit to Sotto Sotto - this time at a table (although the bar is equally recommended). Great Italian wine list, fresh dishes and great gluten-free pasta options (even got the al dente right - that's not easy to do!). Finished off with season's first strawberries over vanilla gelato with aged balsamic!
sotto sotto is easily the best restaurant in Atlanta. the restaurant is small and cozy, and the ambiance feels special and romantic. the food never fails to be absolutely amazing. When going out to dinner I normally would opt for seafood instead of pasta -- but here, you have to get the pasta. every bite is complete bliss. (note - seafood is equally delicious). I've recommended this place to no less than 10+ people and they all give it 5 star reviews. I will keep coming back again and again!
Much smaller than I had anticipated, as I didn't do a lot of research coming into the dinner. Very nice server, very knowledgeable and he recommended a great wine for my beautiful lady friend and I. I accidentally left my Italian translator Giovanni back at my helicopter with his beloved bologense dog named Aldo but luckily our server suggested an amazing hand crafted authentic dish of Spaghettí with rèd sauce. I have never had anything quite so authentic and delicious in my life, that was of course after I consumed the restaurant grown salad that they had prepared for me. All salads from this day on will be judged off that amazing blend romaine lettuce, cucumbers picked from a golden cucumber tree in the back all neatly paired with two precisely cut radishes. On a serious note, excellent food, excellent service, definitely give it a shot
When we arrived we told the gentleman at the podium who we were and what time our reservation was for. We were early. He told us our table won't be ready for a while. So we sat at the bar when the lady came and told us our table is ready she Took us to our table and the seating that they have against the wall is just very unacceptable you're sitting literally within a foot of each other . For my wife that was very uncomfortable and I didn't quite like it myself. So I went up to the gentleman that we talk to when we arrived at the restaurant and the lady was also standing there that took us to our table. I asked them could we please sit somewhere that is not literally on top of someone that my wife was very uncomfortable sitting there. He said to me to sit at a table we would have to wait for someone to cancel to sit alone two people at a four-person table . So they just moved it over two places and then sat another group at the two tables that were in between us which didn't make any difference. Very simple request that could've been accommodated. I would never recommend this restaurant or go there again and spend my money .
We were lucky that the weather was nice and a table on the back patio was open! The ambiance outside is great. It was much more comfortable than the inside seating, which has tables super close to one another and would've made private conversation difficult. The caramelized onion risotto was delicious, and I enjoyed the spinach and ricotta gnocchi as well. Didn't love the fennel salad, which is pretty small for what you pay.
We had drinks at the small bar which was very nice. The first table we were seated at was right in the walkway and under the kitchen. I opted to wait for a nicer table so we could enjoy our meal. Our waiter was very pleasant and gave good service. We asked for more bread and it didn't come until we were done eating. Also he did not ask if we wanted coffee or an after dinner drink. Otherwise it was fine. The food was not quite as good as I had expected. We had the mussels and the antipasto appetizers which were very good. I ordered the mushroom risotto which was pretty good but a little salty. My husband ordered a ravioli which he did not like. He said it was too sweet. Our wine was fine and the dessert of gelatos was great. All in all we enjoyed the experience and would return but there are other restaurants I prefer for the price range.
Most of the indoor two person tables are the half booth thing, where the booth runs the length of the wall. The spaces between the tables is so small, they literally have to pull your table out for the booth person to get out of their seat. They were also seating people outside in February.
For Valentine's I wanted to change this up from our normal go-to place and this year Italian was on the menu. I found Sotto Sotto while researching places and decided we'd give it a try based on its reviews and rating. Overall, it was great and we'll definitely be back. The food was outstanding! We started with the Bufala e Peperoni which was fantastic. I had a caesar salad which was good but typical. My wife and I shared a small portion of the funghi risotto which was excellent and she had the Veal chop while I had the Strozzapreti alla Salsiccia pasta and we had nothing left to box and take home it was that good! Our server was on point and very attentive. The only improvements/suggestions to get to a full 5/5 star would be to not stuff in so many tables. Yes it's Valentines and you're looking to maximize revenue but when your staff has to pull tables out to let guests reach their seat, it's way too close. We felt like we were rubbing shoulders with other patrons and it made conversation a little bit more awkward being so close to others. Finally, upon arriving, the hostess didn't greet us and it took her forever to look up from what she was doing. She asked someone else to seat us, never really looked at us or smiled. That was our first impression upon arriving so it wasn't a good one and was disappointing. However, it wasn't enough to make us not want to dine there or return in the future.
