The place itself is made of brick and looks very rustic! Candle lights, and wooden tables create very nice atmosphere. We liked house wine, the food was great and the price was very reasonable. The ambiance of the place is awesome!

Visited this place for Thursday dinner. Were surprised that it's almost fully booked already around 6. But after we understood the reason. We took bruschatta for starter, pasta and dessert. Everything was fresh, with good quality products and good taste. Definitely recommend this place.

It is a concept of casual intimacy and communal romance.Sotto is the art of simplicity, a steward of restraint. It’s undressed, gutsy and human. It is fire, meat, wheat, and laughter.Above all, Sotto is Italian.
