I’ve always been a fan of Sotto. The level of service and the personal touches are always beyond expectations.

In a world where servers can be dismissive, I appreciate the power of professional servers.

We wanted to support one of our favorites so we decided to eat indoors and after 3 months with shelter in place we felt normal ! The meal was delicious and so happy to see the staff !

Wow! Amazing service, Derek was the best server we’ve ever had. Conversational, great suggestions on food and wine pairings, made special accommodations for our food allergies. Oh and the FOOD IS AMAZING! My mother was born and raised in Italy so I avoid Italian restaurants because they never compare - this place is exquisite - moms home cooked meal but better (sorry mom). Delicious and wonderfully prepared, like they spent all day cooking the sauces. Go here!!

The service was wonderful. The food was great and the menu was creative and unique. The ambiance was very nice, however, i think more could be done with the outdoor decor to make it feel more intimate. While dining, several people walking/driving by interrupted us to ask for change, bus stop info, and directions. Not that i mind helping people, but it’s a very strange time to be interrupted. Perhaps the restaurant could put up planters or some other temporary dividers to give diners a more private experience with outdoor dining. I know that restaurants are facing a variety of challenges due to the pandemic so I’m not judging harshly. I would def come back.

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.
