Sotto Sotto Ratings and Reviews
Mixed feelings about this one. The food was really good, but the atmosphere was not conducive to conversation. The tables are so close together that my wife was closer to the person next to her than she was to me. And this was a tiny table for two, so I wasn't that far away. We had to get up several times during our meal to allow people in/out of the tables next to us. We were there for our anniversary, but it was hard to carry on a conversation with everyone on top of us. So, good food, but I can't recommend it for any kind of night out or special occasion.
I loved everything about it. We were in from DC and looking for a great dinner in our favorite ATL neighborhood. Loved the pasta, wine, dessert (panna cotta I love your forever marry me)! Next time I want to try the "priest strangler"! But the tagliatelle with duck was awesome!
Looking forward to a quiet Anniversary dinner that was spoiled sitting next to a family with two very young bouncy kids on the bench. I am confident the website politely ask that children be left at home but this evening that was not the case. The tables are so close to one another (and no fault of the children) but the parents for thinking 3 and 4 year olds can sit quietly through an evening dinner. I left a note on the paper table cloth to our very nice waitress who showed it to someone at the bar who "shrugged his shoulders".
Completely unimpressive. Most of all because of the service. I couldn't believe how bad it was. We sat down with drinks from the bar so I guess our server assumed he didn't need to greet us for about 15 minutes. When he did, he did not introduce himself, did not ask if we'd like anything else to drink, didn't ask if we'd ever been there before or offer to go over the menu, first thing out of his mouth was, "are you ready to order?" Big turnoff.
The mussels we did get were awful, not even edible. The entrees were okay and when we asked for a dessert menu the server said they were out of pretty much everything but we could get chocolate soup or tiramisu if we wanted.
I certainly wont go back or recommend to anyone.
Went there for Mother's Day, the waitress was a ghost. Takes our order for bread and olive oil. Brings it and leaves, no individual small plates . When we do get her attention she signals us to wait with the palm of her hand.
The appetizers were good BUT the mussels I ordered were warm not entirely opened and some were raw. In total I'd say 20 of the mussels were either closed or raw that we left off eating them.
My wife had seafood risotto again the mussels were unopened and the seafood took upmost of the room in the bowl including about 5 unopened mussels . I had seafood pasta my daughter spaghetti. The waitress puts down the dishes and walks away before we can ask for cheese.
Thankfully another of the waitstaff Afro American was kind enough at our request to provide the fresh grated cheese.
My wife and I both agreed the dishes were too salty.
Needless to say, there will not be another meal eaten there by us.
To be fair , this is the second time we've been here. The first time about 8-10 years ago and we were treated very well and the food superb.
However , I will not frequent this establishment again.
I loved this place! Food was amazing, so was the service.
I would only change one thing, and that is the space in between tables. I couldn't have a romantic quiet dinner with my fiance because the seating is so close to the other guests you might as well join them for dinner. I could clearly hear all the other conversations going on around us, and felt I was sitting in on someone else dinner outing.
My wife and I were in Atlanta for business and chose to dine here based on the glowing reviews on OpenTable and Zagat. Overall, we were disappointed in the meal. We shared the antipasto and Lasagnette. The lasagnette was bland and and dry. The noodle product was slightly over cooked. Two of the meats in the antipasto were slightly sour and the rest of the dish was ordinary.
We then had the whole roasted fish and the veal chop. The veal chop, which was ordered medium, was very rare and cold. The sauce was bland. The fish was fileted at the table and done so improperly that a significant portion of the fish was wasted.
Being disgusted with the meal, we skipped desert and picked up an order of nachos on our way back to the hotel.
The bottom line is I would not recommend or return.
Sotto Sotto, I would say, hits a lot of great notes--pleasant atmosphere, great food, attentive service, wonderful selection of Italian wines. It's not the easiest place to park/walk to for someone with a disability. Front entrance is understated, to a fault. In that sense, it would not be inaccurate to call it a "hidden gem." Would love to see a drop-off space out front and a little better identification. It is, though, a very satisfying dining experience.
We booked a table for four for Easter Sunday after Sunday services. We were so pleased that they were (1) open earlier than normal Sunday hours and (2) offered their traditional, full menu vs. the horrible brunch buffets or limited offerings that most top restaurants force upon you during this holiday. The favorites were absolutely superb -- from the plump, sweet, perfectly done Cape Sante sea scallops to the wonderfully creamy Risotto agli Asparagi (made with vegetable broth for my picky vegetarian daughter). The pasta list is so varied and wonderful, I wanted to try them all. My personal favorite, Strozzapreti was there --with its rough, hand made cuts of pasta, done al dente so it stands up so well to the rich, sweet sausage ragu . The Tortelli ai Carciofi was just the right portion featuring seven delicate pillows of mascarpone and artichokes... And the list goes on...there are no misses here. A special shout out to the wait staff. What marvelous energy and attentiveness you displayed even on this early Sunday when you should have been home sleeping. You all are the best!
I don't know what happened to Sotto Sotto. It was one of my favorites.
My boyfriend took me there to celebrate my birthday. It was such a lovely evening we decided to sit out in the patio, something we've never done before. Maybe that was the problem.
Our waitress was rude, informal and non attentive. And our food was definitely lacking seasoning that night...pretty frustrating as our memory of that night is far from positive with a bill over $175 for a dinner for two. I hope it was just a bad Monday night for the staff...not sure I care to find out though...
Anniversary dinner with the usual superb food. Scallops appetizer with fav beans delightful with perfectly cooked scallops. Risotto with mushrooms in an appetizer portion was wonderful - incredibly flavorful mushrooms. The farro salad with seasonal vegetables and sherry vinegar dressing is hearty but light. We both had the tagliatelle with cotton ham and peas in a very light cream sauce. Tasted wonderful. I would ask that the entree portion be increased a bit - kind of on the small side.
I believe this is the best Italian restaurant in Atlanta. I have visited Italy on multiple occasions, and I can't find pasta anywhere outside of Italy that comes so close to the original. I dream about the Michelangelo pasta, and the pasta with mushrooms is unreal. You won't be disappointed with this dining experience.
