Fodor's Review

This coal cellar in a turn-of-the-20th-century home was dug out, its stone walls and floor polished, and what has emerged is a dining oasis for locals and international jet-setters alike. The menu of more than 20 pasta dishes gives a tantalizing tug at the taste buds. Gnocchi here is made daily. The orecchiette ("ear-shape" disks of pasta) tossed with prosciutto and mixed garden vegetables is a symphony of textures. Cornish hen is marinated, pressed, and grilled to a juicy

brown, and the swordfish and fresh fish of the day are beautifully done on the grill.

Snotto Snotto

My wife and I had a terrible experience. Had a reservation at 8:30. Showed up early for a drink. No bar. No seats. Left by 9 after it was clear no table was forthcoming. Seemed to be an every night occurance - over sell, and under deliver. Very crowded with self-absorbed yuppies, claustrophic really, noisy, and uncomfortable. Awful night, and no one seemed to care.

so-so Sotto Sotto

Can't figure out what the hype is all about. Room is cozy and service was good to great. But the food was mediocre and expensive.

Frozen is unacceptable

Dinner at Sotto one night and ordered the very expensive tuna carpaccio. (over $20) it came and was frozen to the plate. Can you believe it. They apologized brought me another one and it was warm. They don't know what they are doing. To top it all off they didn't even ofter anything complimenatary. This place is way over hiped, you can do much better, don't waste your money

Baby It's Cold Inside

Good food..not great, although they seem to think so. If you like to eat in a cavelike dungeon, you are going to love this place. We were ignored for almost 10 minutes...stuck in a little corner near the front, and it was so cold....we complained and complainded to no avail. Were informed they needed to keeep it that cold for the rest of restaurant. Hey if you are impressed with pictures of the owner with minor celebs go eat there..next time I'll

try the place upstairs, another Italian Restaurant.
