Food is superb. I had the cioppino and never saw so much seafood, including lobster. The desserts were divine, and the hot and bothered is a jalapeno mule - definitely try it! Visited on a special night with a master jazz pianist.

We ate in this restaurant on 6/16/18 as a part of a party of 31. Service was good, food was out of this world and cocktails were inexpensive for a downtown restaurant . We were promptly seated and basically closed the shop without any problems.

Sotto Sopra is the restaurant we choose to celebrate special occasions. Tonight, we came to celebrate my husband’s birthday, and they went all out for us. We were treated to exceptionally flavorful modern Italian cuisine in a beautiful setting. We felt like we were dining in Italy! Patrick, our server, and Maciej, his assistant, took such excellent care of us. They really knew how to make us feel special. Lindsey, the manager, came by to offer her good wishes – such a nice touch. They paid attention to every detail to insure that we had a great dining experience. We started with two appetizers, the Goat Cheese Salad (arugula, baby beets, shaved fennel, goat cheese fritters in a tangerine dressing) and the Sotto Sopra Flatbread (3 pieces of flatbread topped with mozzarella, provolone, arugula and prosciutto). Both were fresh and delicious. My husband had the Honey Lavender Salmon (pan seared Salmon with sautéed broccolini lobster gremolata and mashed potatoes). The salmon was cooked just as he requested. I had the Fettuccine con ragu di Osso Bucco – my dish was loaded with meat. For dessert, my husband enjoyed the Chocolate Molten Cake with fresh berry sauce and vanilla bean gelato. The finishing touch was the Birthday gelato with fresh strawberries and a lit sparkler. We can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our dinners.

Decent food, very loud, close tables, excessive wait.

We waited for 30 minutes past our reservation time. Nothing was offered and though polite, the staff, very young, has no idea about how to effectively deal with such occurrences. Starting g a meal like this is never pleasant. The food, while good, didn't rise to a level that would make us forget the night's first course of WAITING.
Best thing we ate was the halibut!
