Sotto Sotto Ratings and Reviews

Nice setting, but overall not too impressed. Clams had nice flavor, mozzarella was nothing special. We ordered three pasta dishes to try. One was great - mushroom, one was good - ravioli and one was bland. In fact not done even remember what I ordered. Chocolate soup was just warm chocolate sauce. No skill. Marscapone/amaretti dessert was wonderful! May or may not be back.
We had the best meal, and the best server. Sat outside on the patio, recommend that 1,000%. Had a mixture of small plates since we could not decide on entrees, and recommend that also ... it was great to have a variety of risotto, lasaganette, and two completely different types of pasta. Cocktails were delicious ... have the Lovely Day. Or two.

A few oops.....
We brought friends who were celebrating their 45th anniversary . Soto Soto was kind enough to bring them each a flute of presesco. A nice gesture, but so odd that they didn't bring us a glass.......we "toasted" with our water! The service and food were very good except too much dressing on the salad, too much sauce on the lamb and the wrong flavor gelato served ( not corrected or complemented). We will go back eventually for another try.

Took my fiancee there for her birthday and was not disappointed. One of the better meals we have had in a while as well as great service. Will definitely be going back.
Quaint Place with Great Food & Wine
What a hidden gem. This was my first time to Atlanta and was looking for a good Italian Restaurant for a work dinner . I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The food was MARVELOUS and the wine was SPECTACULAR. We started with the Buffalo Mozzarella and then for our entrees we chose-Tortelli di Michelangelo Buonaroti (Everyone's Favorite), Cacio, Pepe, e Pancetta ( Spaghetti with Pancetta), the third person in our party had a type of tortelloni (Large tortellini) stuffed with artichoke hearts and some other things. The portion sizes were small - or maybe the size they should be, and we all decided we could have ordered another round of the Tortelli di Michaelangelo Buonaroti. I will definitely return and refer others that will be visiting Atlanta in the near future.

Sotto Sotto is hard to spot from the street until after dark, but it's well worth the effort (next door to Friti on Highland). Always good food, always friendly staff. On the expensive side, but not too. It's small so you'll want to get reservations well in advance.

The food was great as usual. However, our waiter was extremely slow and inattentive to our table. This was interesting, because he was quite attentive to the tables around us. However, there were multiple times he would speak with all tables around us then leave without even looking at us even while we tried to get his attention.

A Quiet Atmosphere for Superb Food
When the time of our 20th Anniversary came, I thought my wife would enjoy a trip to Atlanta to dine at Sotto Sotto; long a favorite of ours. Before I could spring the idea on her, she mentioned that it would be nice to eat at Sotto Sotto again. Great minds think alike! Our meal was the usual superb event that it always is. My wife's artichoke and mascarpone tortellini were out of this world. I had the Risotto Mantecato. If I'm going to eat a risotto, this is the restaurant that I'm going to do it at. The desserts were also incredible. The pistachio gelato tasted as if the toasted pistachios had been rendered into luscious cream itself. The flavor was incredible. And the Panna Cotta was the usual taste of heaven. We traveled several hours to eat at this restaurant, and in five years of patronage, it's never failed us.
It was all very nice!

Always a pleasure!
Sotto Soto never disappoints! The service is always top cabin and the food is savory. They also have an excellent wine list. Our server was Chris, he was on top of everything.

Best Italian restaurant in Atlanta! Unique dishes, superbly prepared, and expertly served.
Small bistro neighborhood restaurant. 3rd visit over a couple of years when in Atlanta on business. Each time has been better than previous. Antipasto appetizer for the table a good way to start. Pasta outstanding... Priest Strangler with creamy meat sauce and fresh baked bread. Amazing Veal chops then ended with outstanding gelato. Only positive comments for the entire group! Service was outstanding!!!

As always, the service was terrific and the food was delicious
Fantastic date spot
The staff are wonderful and the back patio is surprisingly serene for being in the middle of bustling Inman Park. The food is also fantastic.
A foodie find
The food is very creative and well prepared. The menu offers plenty of choices and not just the usual fare. We enjoyed the favas with romano and evoo & a farro salad. We ordered 3 different pastas which were wonderful. Dessert was tasty. Server was knowledgeable . Prices were reasonable for the high quality. It was a memorable dinner.
Good dinner date place
The food was great. Little salty to my palate, but it was full of flavors. Risotto was cooked right. The complimentary bread was really good. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The restaurant is cozy. The waitress was friendly. We chose her recommendation on menu and we were satisfied with the choices.

We ate in the garden on a beautiful evening. It was a very romantic setting. The hot bread was especially good. The food was delicious with fresh high quality ingredients. Noise level very acceptable. I would definitely return.
Out of 6 people, we 4 arrived first. Howtess said either we wait at the bar or we should order food if we sit at the table right away even before our guest arrives. We had to order few appetizers and drinks, and it came out almost immediately, and we had to wait for rhw guest watching the appetizers... Food was good. However, for a restaurant that we spent over $500, the reception was very cold, impersonal and unprofessional. Even the cloethes that the hostess wore was not suitable at all. Bad feeling at the entrance lasts until the end.
This was our first visit to Soto Soto and won't be the last. We went on a whim without a recommendation on a pleasant Sunday evening. We sat on the patio which allowed us to enjoy the perfect weather with only moderate noise levels so we could have a good conversation with our friends. We already knew the menu from looking online and were pleased with the extensive wine list. Now the best part, the service was some of the best we've had anywhere. The server was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, prompt, and courteous. The four of us tried 4 different entrees and each tried each one. We all voted for the Strozzapreti alla Salsiccia as the favorite, although all were very good. We had the chocolate soup and the mascarpone layered desserts, both excellent as well. We consider ourselves foodies and are generally disappointed with the food at restaurants. Soto Soto was a pleasant surprise and a welcome addition to our preferred restaurants list.
Everything about Sotto Sotto was unbelievable! The food, service, wine list and staff were absolutely perfect!

Delicious food. Pasta was fresh and tender. The duck Ragu was rich and flavorful. Great wine list. Personable and informative waiter.
Great Food, Not So Good Service
I had the sear scallops appetizer and grilled veal chop. My wife had the grilled chicken. All of the food was excellent. The service on the other hand was poor. Here are the shortfalls: 1. Ordered a caesar salad but was brought the garden salad. 2. Our waiter topped off my wife's bottled water with tap water. I pointed this out to our waiter and he said he would bring another bottled water but never did. 3. I was drinking wine and bottled water. I spent close to half the meal without any water. 4. My wife ordered a cappuccino and it was lukewarm. The waiter said he must not have heated up the milk enough. A restaurant of this caliber should provide a higher level of service to match their prices. As I pointed out at the beginning, the food was excellent.

Fantastic fresh pasta. The veal chop was cooked perfectly and everything was delicious. The atmosphere was nice and our server was excellent. We will definitely be going back to Sotto Sotto!
Waiter worst part
The food was okay but the waiter was condescending .
Amazing as usual
Went with a group of 8 for restaurant week. The food is always wonderful, the restaurant is beautiful and the staff is so accommodating. One of the best restaurants in the city.

I love their pasta dishes. One of the best Italian restaurant in Atlanta. Service is inconsistent. Hostess was inexperienced and rude. Manager had to come and recuse us the night we went.
Inman Park Restaurant Week
The food at Sotto Sotto is always great. We were taking advantage of Inman Park Restaurant week. The service was not up to par and we were disappointed that we were put in the space above Fritti. We will be back because we know this is not how the experience is normally at Sotto Sotto.
All time Atlanta favorite
Sotto Sotto remains an Atlanta tradition while equally vibrant and current. Always a first choice for an occasion, celebration, out of town friends or a casual night. Thank you, Sotto Sotto!
Food wasn't anything special. Chocolate "soup" dish sounded wonderful but was ordinary. Service was confused and unfriendly.
Excellent selections for prix fixe meals.
Went there during Inman Park Restaurant Week. There were three types of prix fixe dinners and the restaurant was willing to make substitutions to meet diners' choices. Waiter was helpful describing various dishes. Very good wine list. Food was very well prepared, presentation was appealing and courses were adequately spaced to enjoy. Only complaint about the restaurant is it gets very noisy and conversations can be difficult.

Authentic Northern Italian food. This is definitely one of my favorite Atlanta restaurants. I don't think it would be possible to have a bad meal here.
