Sotto Sopra is my favorite restaurant in Baltimore and we frequent it for our special family occasions.
We have never been disappointed, always very happy with the quality of our meals, service and the overall dining experience.

Sotto Sopra never disappoints. I have been there for their Opera night and now their Jazz Wednesday. (I will say that the jazz is just light stuff and would probably not satisfy a hard core jazz fan, but it is pleasant and well played.) The food is always superb, the service is efficient, friendly, and accomodating, and the setting is terrific.

I'm from Italy and this is one of the very few Italian places I have been to in Baltimore where the food is truly authentic. (The chef is from Bergamo, Italy). I certainly enjoy all types of cuisine from the entire world, but if you are looking for an authentic Italian restaurant in Baltimore, this is it. We will go back again.

Service and table setting were lovely. I had saltimbocca which was delicious and the perfect serving size. Perhaps a little more zucchini in the vegetable but understand that it isn't really the time of year for it. My daughter ordered the mushroom filled chicken with potato; she would have preferred that the chicken skin had been rendered more and that it was more crispy but understood the sauce may have posed a challenge to that. The apple strudel was really lovely although perhaps a tablespoon more ice cream since the filling was really hot and needed the ice cream to be able to eat it. The chianti was delightful.

I absolutely love this gem in the Mt. Vernon area. My boyfriend and I went there before going to see a play at the Hippodrome and I am so glad we picked this place. The burrata appetizer was SO good and the squid ink pasta with shrimp was TO DIE for. I will definitely be going back to try more things off of the menu.

I was really looking forward to this birthday celebration for my son, but the experience was pretty mixed. We were 5 people squeezed into a four person table in the corner, one on the party was repeated jostled by servers walking by. The food was good but there was barely any room on the table for the dishes and wine glasses, and since two of the group ordered things that required an extra dish for shells, it was pretty much a nightmare. The food was good, but I think that for the money we paid, we should have had a better experience. Especially since I reserved the table more than a month in advance.

I hadn't been here in 10 years and I wasn't sure if it would be as good as last time -- but it exceeded my expectations! My husband and I spent some time at the bar for cocktails, which were phenomenal and the bartender was incredibly friendly and social. Once we were seated at our table, we got the calamari and the another app with fried artichokes and meat. Then our entrees were the pork ossobuco and pumpkin raviolini both of which had us just melting in our seats with enjoyment. Such great meals. Our server Katie was very helpful with recommendations, including a great glass of red wine.

The ambiance was romantic. The server was friendly and attentive and accommodated our every need. My wife thought the ricotta gnocchi with pesto was light and not overpowering with garlic.

We decided to eat at Sotta Sopra because of the jazz quartet. The food was excellent. Especially recommend the seafood bowl and cheesecake dessert.
