Pizza is quite good (although the toping is limited). But we had to literally shout to speak to each other, and it was just 2 of us. It is just too noisy as the room is very small,full of people, and they are making the pizza... in the same room! which is cool to watch, but noisy too. I recomment it for a take away :)

I an very picky with pizzas preferring the ones we make ourselves at home. The pizza at Sotto was outstanding. Thin crispy crust, right balance between cheese & tomatoes, and plenty of tasty toppings. I had a quattre staggione. Delicious. The Tiramisu for desert was a killer. And the espresso as one should expect in an Italian restaurant

The pizza's at this place are simply very good. I would not agree with some other readers that they are the best in Amsterdam (there are two or three other even better 'true Italian' pizza places) but they are very good.

The service at this place was not that great the time we visited; waitress seemed knowledgeable but there was like 10 minutes apart between moments at which pizza's were served to various people from our party of only four; also ordering some beers and a simple foccacia took significant time.

The place feels a bit 'industrial' or minimally decorated; good for a pizza with friends not so much for either a business meeting or a romantic dinner.

Value for money is good though; if you need a good quick pizza for an affordable price you found the right place.

We got two pizzas 'to go' and eat them in the Vondelpark. We got a Margherita and a Verdure, both were very good. On the menu they use the term D.O.P. a lot. It stands for 'Denominazione d' Origine Protetta' (protected designation of origin). I don't really know it this *really* adds something, to be honest, but the pizzas were good. The choice is limited; they only have pizzas, some deserts and side dishes, but what they do, they do well. It used to be hard to get pizzas like this in Amsterdam/The Netherlands, so I'm glad Sotto is added to the choices. The place looks very cool, with the oven and industrial feel! Ps.: you can only pay with pin(debitcard)/creditcard, no cash!

We did not plan to eat in this place, as we're always a bit wary o pizzerias abroad. We're Italians and we are a bit demanding in this sense. However I must say that the menu was really exciting. The pizza came in a very few minutes from the wood oven. Just the right thickness and flavour. It was indeed quite good and I would definitely go back to try the one with ricotta edges (unusual, but can be a nice surprise after all). I did not give the max score, as there could be some slight improvement, but that might be due only to the fact that we're not in Italy and air and water do count!
