Given the excellent reviews, we were apprehensive that expectations might be too high, but not to worry - Sotto Sotto delivered the goods. Having seen photos we were expecting a special ambience which we got, however it was the food that wowed! We were a largish group and between us sampled a wide variety across the menu, with everyone unanimous... More

We wanted to try Sotto Sotto because of the number of great reviews on TripAdvisor. It was a difficult reservation to get because when we called after getting into town, every night was booked. Fortunately, we left our name on a waiting list and got a call the following day with a dinner opening for the next day. The restaurant... More

The service from the moment we entered the restaurant was superb. The ambience was amazing and the food was delicious. The homemade bread was sublime and every dish on the menu tempted my taste buds. It was a joy to eat fine food that hasn't been deconstructed, or almost non existent on the plate. Next time I'm in Bath I... More

It's hard to get a table at this much-loved restaurant in Bath. I booked dinner for a special occasion months in advance! The wait was worth it, however, as we had a fabulous evening. From the moment we walked into the door of the restaurant, we were welcomed like old friends and treated with extreme kindness and care. The setting... More

Having read numerous 5 star reviews on trip advisor (no idea how this place has 6000+ reviews though?) I had very high expectations of this place. Firstly, booking is tricky, very limited availability and made to feel I was lucky to be given a booking at all. This added to my sense of expectation! The food was 'nice' but absolutely... More

Really friendly service but the food could be prepared with a bit more love, the pasta was overcooked and the seasoning could be even better.

A very enjoyable lunch in a thoroughly pleasant restaurant. The staff were friendly, professional and welcoming. I chose the lunchtime special (fettuccine) and was underwhelmed as it lacked flavour; the profiteroles for dessert were positively disappointing. Hey, ho, probably my poor choices.

Judging by the good reviews, I was looking forward to my visit to Sotto Sotto and was definitely not disappointed. The food, the ambience and service were all outstanding. It reminded me very much of good meals I had in Rome.

Description
BOOKING IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. We are closed from 1st-14th August, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Easter Sunday & from 1st-14th January. Situated just a few steps away from the Roman Baths, our attractive and atmospheric restaurant is located in a charming candle lit historical cellar of natural Bath stone with vaulted ceilings throughout, and resembles the cavernous cellars of an Italian grotto.The main characteristic of our cuisine is its simplicity. We rely on the quality of our ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.We also like to offer traditional Italian dishes with a contemporary twist because we strongly believe in those 'Sapori' (flavours).With our finest ingredients coming from Italy, and all of our fresh vegetables, seafood and meats sourced locally, we are able to ensure high quality dining that will exceed your expectations.
