Sotto Sotto Ratings and Reviews

Parking around back is very limited to about ten spaces. Seating leaves one feeling claustrophobic as the hostess had to move our table out of the way and then move it back after we sat down. If you have to use the restroom when you're there you would interrupt someone's meal to get up as the seating is just that tight. The calamari was not good though the meals look pretty. The beef tenderloin was cold and very small though it was okay. The salmon was cooked properly however this salad that it is served with was missing a few ingredients.
Wife and I went on our anniversary I would not recommend this for an anniversary but maybe lunch.

We really like Sotto Sotto and have been celebrating our anniversary there for years, but will request a separate table next time. We were squeezed in between 2 other tables and it is impossible to have a private conversation. We were forced to hear a conversation from our neighbors on one side about religion the entire time we were trying to enjoy our meal. Next time we will request a separate table outside.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Sotto Sotto. Our server was excellent, welcoming, very attentive and helpful answering questions. We selected a delicious red wine for our meal. We started with Antipasto Misto that had tasty Italian meats, cheeses, olives and mushrooms. The melded flavors were terrific, and the wine was perfect with the appetizer and our entrees. We chose Tortelli di Michelangelo Buonaroti and Lasagnette alla Bolognese. The ravioli were filled with veal, pork and chicken in a butter and sage sauce. The lasagna was made with bolognese and a bechamel sauce that gave a mouthful of great flavors that blended together well without one overpowering another. The pasta for both dishes was homemade, very light, tender and delicious; and the sauces were light and subtle, providing sophisticated dishes that surpass any Italian food I've ever had. This is a great restaurant. Parking is limited, but valet parking is available off of Elizabeth St. Seating in the lower dining room can become crowded if you have a later reservation, and the restaurant becomes noisy later in the evening. We had a 6:30 pm reservation and sat on the entrance level that has less crowding, and the early hour resulted in less noise so it was easy to talk. We highly recommend this restaurant. We have never been disappointed at this restaurant! Treat yourself and someone special!

The food was very good at Sotto Sotto. I had the scallops and the lasagna and they were both outstanding. However, we were seated at a table just inside the door ad the humidity and cigar smoke from the street made it an uncomfortable experience. I know it is an urban restaurant but getting blasts of humidity and cigar smoke was disappointing. Service was also slow on a very busy night. "We don't have any specials tonight, I'll be back for your orders in a few minutes" was not the normal welcome and service we expected. We didn't feel special and I hope this was just an off-night and not the new normal.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our anniversary dinner at Sotto Sotto. The wine list was extensive and the service was impeccable. Our meals were delicious, particularly the seafood risotto. We would definitely go again.

My husband and I had not been to Sotto Sotto in a really long time. There are just so many great restaurants in town to choose from now. Before we were through our first course, we realized that we have been missing out by not dining here more often. We had such an amazing meal. The food was incredible! Happy to be back!

Sotto Sotto is one of the best places I have been in a very long while. Pasta is made fresh and all of the food was absolutely delicious. The chicken was out of this world as was the Rissoto. The house Chianti was also excellent.

We eat at Sotto Sotto pretty regularly (every couple of months) and have since it opened. The food is always consistently excellent. It can be a bit noisy and you almost always have to wait 30 minutes on Saturday evenings to get your reserved table. The wait staff is professional and many have been there quite a while. Atlanta has a lot of very good restaurants but this is among the best and is our favorite. I don't review it every time we eat there because I don't want to get repetitive but this is a terrific spot.

Sotto Sotto might be the best restaurant in Atlanta. Marvelous modern creative Italian cuisine. Eric is one of the top bartenders in the world! Amazing Italian wine list. And amazing gluten free pastas too if that's your thing.

Great neighborhood find! Full on a Monday night is a good sign, but not so full that we can't be accommodated at the bar - Albert took great care of us. The service was personal, the food was great -it was clear that the clientele was a mix of "regulars" and newbies like us. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend the veal chop (we split between 2 of us) and an extensive wine list from all across Italy.

Always great pasta with an extensive wine list. Start with an appetizer because they have 3 excellent ones including my favorite the mussels. I usually do 2 first course size portions of the pasta for a little variety. All the seafood pastas are worth a try. Enjoy

There is no better Italian food in Atlanta. Some are close, but the sauces are worked to perfection and the protein is cooked perfectly. Long time menu favorite, Halibut makes it hard to venture to any other part of the menu, but each special is worth the trip. The veal special really was. Antipasti beef carpaccio melted in the mouth. The wine list covered all the bases and was reasonable with excellent advice from our server. It's noisy but dinner here is always special and well worth the trip from the north side of town.

From the moment we stepped in the door we felt unwelcome at Sotto Sotto. The host was extremely disrespectful to the other half of our party who arrived 15 minutes early, and denied them our table even though the restaurant was empty. Once we arrived, he scolded us for walking in front of him, keep in mind we are 30 and 50 year-olds respectively. Once we sat down the service did not get any better. Our waiter expected us to know what we wanted to drink right away, and when we were not prepared he abandoned us for 15 minutes. He was very ornery every time we asked for something, and most of our refills were taken care of by the other waiters who noticed we were low on drinks. Our waiter did take care of our water refills, and he managed to stick his elbow in my face each time...totally unprofessional. The food was ok-the meat and cheese plate was good, but sparse. The pasta was decent, but not what I was expecting. Overall, I would expect so much more from this restaurant, and do not plan on returning after the poor service we received.

Our server helped identify favorite items on the menu that all were fantastic, reflecting the best seasonal ingredients and flavors. We enjoyed a fabulous caprese salad, a farro, tomato and cucumber salad, a spinach gnocci dish that couldn't be more fresh, and excellent Scottish salmon. I hadn't visited Sotto Sotto in years and was pleased that it was as good - if not better - than I ever remembered. I will be back much sooner!
