Other reviewers have pointed out that just because a restaurant is booked up in advance it does not necessarily mean it is very good. This certainly applies to Sotto Sotto. We were taken as guests and I was slightly embarrassed for our hosts. The reception/welcome...More

Excellent food. The only complaint I would have that the plates for main course were only just warm so food got cold quite quickly. The profiteroles with white chocolate & limoncello was nice but a little sickly & couldn’t taste the limoncello! Staff were lovely...More

Tonight was our third attempt to get a table here and it was well worth it. The service was very professional and the ambience was so charming inside the ‘cellar’ restaurant. We really enjoyed the chicken livers and deep fried squids starters and the rack...More

We were impressed by the excellentservice provided by the staff, who were attentive and knowledgeable about the meals on the menu. The restaurant is easily missed with a "hidden" entrance. The interior is stylish although cellar- like, which may not be ideal for those with...More

Went as a family to celebrate Sue's birthday. Had a fab time from start to finish. Great food and drink and friendly attentive staff. Felt like a really special evening.

So pleased that we got a table here at the last minute. After a slow start the food and service was faultless. Pros: Lovely food served by ‘real’ Italians. Cons: Noisy when all tables are occupied. Would I visit again? Yes.

Yes. I had to book weeks in advance.

Access by a steep flight of iron steps down from the pavement. Two sharp bends make it a bit risky for a guide dog and someone poorly sighted. I know dogs per se are not allowed as one one refused entry when we were there... More

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.
