One of the best restaurants out there...
Excellent Restaurant and service. Had the best octopus i hoverer had.Highly recommend.
Good food but over priced
I have heard about this place from my friends many times, and finally came a chance to go there. From the first moment I stepped inside, I did not feel comfortable. The servers were pushing you to choose quickly, attitude was not friendly at all and the appetizers took long time - 20-30 minutes - to come. The pasta was over cooked and in my opinion the food's price does not match its quality.
I have visited again and again Sotto Sotto. It is one of the best italian restaurants I have been to. The food is amazing and the wine list is incroyable. A great place for a great dinner for 2
Disappointment! Sotto Sotto was highly recommended to us and we decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary there. Food - bread was definitively from yesterday, cold and soggy. Our appetizer missed the parmigiano (!) and prosciuto was NOT Parma. Main dish was the best part, calamari and sardines, but nothing to be impressed with. Just average. Flambe for desert was salty so my theory is that they actually used salter butter for it, I have no other explanation. Service - below average. We had 4 different servers and 2 of them managed to spill food over the table. Ambiance - yes it is cozy and nice but we were unfortunate to pick a night when some kind of corporate event took place and they placed them together with the rest of us in the same room. The acoustics of the place (or, to be correct, basement) that is this restaurant hardly allowed us to hear each other, it was so noisy. Overall, as I mentioned, a big disappointment. It's not fine dinning, that's for sure. The photos at the entrance with all the movie stars are impressive and contribute to the hype this place does not deserve. It's an average Italian restaurant in a fancy neighbourhood that probably still lives it's old fame.
We had heard this was a Resturant for Fine Dining. So we decided to go here for New Years Eve 2008/2009. Our experience turned out to be very disapointing. The building is very run down, so the atmosphere rating was not as pleasant as one is lead to believe. The food was average, and more so the Waiter from France was bewildered for most of the evening. As you can imagine, the service was very poor. Over all rating, no more than a 2 Star Rating. Please keep your coat on, as the windows are drafty should you be so lucky to be seated next to one while dining. The washrooms were not clean, so you can imagine what the kitchen looks like. A good place to go though if you want to be ignored by your Waiter all evening. The wine menu shows a very poor selection. The meal was $128.00 per plate, wow
I love the atmosphere, the caverns and the lightimng but man for the cost one needs a little ore quality and a more extensive menu. Even the bread was served stale. Definitely not from the same day.
We were there quite late - from about 10 to midnight and it was surprisingly loud! Conversation was a little difficult. Overall it was a pleasant experience, but given the number of restaurant options in Toronto, I would chose to try a new one rather than return to Sotto Sotto unless I was craving some simple al dente pasta. The baccio gelati was excellent. As was the very EXPENSIVE bottle of Cake Bread ($250). The food was definitely decent, but not particularly memorable.
Disappointing for the price. Perfect until after the main course, food was excellent. Then we were asked to move table to make room for two tables to be moved together - presumably for a 3rd sitting, we then felt like we were being hassled to be moved on. We were asked if we wanted coffee without enquiring about dessert, and they forgot to move our drinks when we changed table. While there we saw no less than three tables being asked to move to make room for others. Overall? we expected a more relaxed atmosphere and better service for the price, with perhaps some suggestion of a free drink for the hassle of moving but nothing materalised.
Great Meal - Would for sure go back again and again, and to top it off one of the chefs is HOT HOT HOT. I will recomend Sotto Sotto to everyone.
Awesome restaurant awesome server :)
we were there for a birthday, great food and service
Incredible authentic and fresh.
Great service with great food
Thanks for the special birthday dinner Sotto Sotto!
In a word..."Amazing". Thanks Sotto Sotto - we will be back!
The restaurant was out of several items from something as simple as beer. How are you out of beer? The table bread arrived ice cold- we had to request it to be heated. The beef carpaccio was flavourless and almost a smell that it was bad. We didn't eat it. The mains saved the meal from disaster as the two of each felt the mains were delicious.
Simply amazing from start to finish
I love this place.
The only negative comment we have is regarding the wine selection. Unless the average person is comfortable spending at least a few hundred dollars on a bottle of wine, there aren't any options for a glass other than $18 for 6oz of a table wine.
Lit up daddi cheeeeez, some notice and some know this ya digg
Tomas was fantastic! Great food and service
Amazing as usual best restaurant in the city hands down !!!!
Food was really good but the portions were so small!!! atmosphere was really nice but our table for 2 was pretty tiny! server was very nice and and was on his A game, no issues with him. The only issue is the tiny portion! My boyfriend ordered the assorted seafood plate and for $40 it was not worth it....there was only 1 shrimp, 1 calamari, 2 scallops...and no side! only those 4 small seafood pieces, that was kinda ridiculous! I ordered the seafood linguine however which was really delicious, it was an okay portion, but for a pasta dish was kinda on the smaller side... we went to eat something after we left cuz we were still hungry. Very tasty but too small.
Great food and wine list but a bit pricy.
We had an amazing dinner and the service was fantastic! Our table was right beside a bar area which was a little unpleasant, but everything else was top notch!
Lovely romantic restaurant, with excellent service. We both had the fruiti di Mare. The seafood was very fresh and delicious. Not one bad mussel! The sauce in my opinion lacked any flavour from the seafood. Overall was not the best I've ever had and Pricey for a small portion.
Waited almost an hour to be seated from my reservation time.
As always the staff and food has been #1 @ Sotto Sotto. Thanks
Great meal as usual and nice touch with the dessert for my friend Omars birthday. It always feels like home when at Soto soto
Excellent food, waiter and service. We especially enjoyed the room upstairs a lot. Cozy, warm and inviting with nice decor, clean washrooms and dim lighting in the dining room with curtains that can close off your table to add privacy.
Fine, well served meal. First time in new venue. Wine list extensive but very over priced at low end. There are lots of good wines from Tuscany and Puglia that could sell for. Under 50.00 including a 100 percent markup. We will certainly go back.
Perfect, as always!
We had an absolutely exceptional time at this restaurant. The service was absolutely amazing and I cannot praise Spencer enough. That goes with the food (always fresh!) and ambiance as well. I will definitely return!
Thank you for the exceptional service. This is a restaurant we have wanted to go to for years now. Our waiter was courteous, fun and helpful. We felt like royalty dining here with you. We cannot wait to return as we will be coming back once a month.
Amazing meal (especially the fish), fantastic service.
A stellar New Years Eve dinner with great food, ambience and service as always.
