    Our food at Sotto Sopra was all very good. All had different dishes and we were all very pleased with them. My sisters had the cioppino and the pasta carbonara and both were excellent. I had the mussels (very good) and my husband had the pumpkins ravioli. My brother-in-law had the bronzino and we all thought the dishes were very well done. Our server was just a little slow in taking our orders but I'm sure he could see that we were talking happily so he didn't rush. I could see that he was very busy with other tables, so maybe they need more servers.

    Food is always excellent. Service seemed a tiny bit slow. But they weren’t super busy and so there was no rush to turn the table. So that was not a big deal. Highly recommend

    Happily, we discovered Sotto Sopera thanks to a referral last Christmas from the Hotel Indigo nearby. There's no better Italian restaurant on this side of the Pond! Despite having to change our reservations twice, the staff graciously accommodated our needs! This is a first-class Italian restaurant in the DC | Baltimore Area! Bravissimo!!!

    We have been going to Sotto Sopra for the last 15 years whenever we visited Baltimore. The food and service have really deteriorated. Not sure we would return.

    Sotto Sopra is our go-to for dinner before our monthly shows at the Hippodrome. Delicious food and impeccable service (Derrick is awesome) is standard. We used to try different places but gave up when we realized none compared to Sotto Sopra. Highly recommend.

    Sotto Sopra is my favorite restaurant in Baltimore; my wife and I eat there at least once per month. The consistency of the dishing coming out of the kitchen is amazing and the staff is definitely in the top 5 most professional in all of Baltimore. We've tried nearly every item on the menu and enjoy them all. Their seasonal specials make for a great change of pace for our frequent visits. For this visit I had their Calamari Fritti, a very traditional Fritto Misto with a variety of vegetables as well as Calamari; it's terrific! Tonight, I also had my most favorite entrée on the menu, Frutti de Mare, Squid Ink Pasta, Shrimp, and Calamari with a Cherry Tomato and Lobster Broth. I've eaten Squid Ink Pasta with Seafood several times in Veneto/Venice, Italy, and I still think Sotto Sopra's is the best!

    The service is impeccable! Folding napkin when you get up, they asked if we were trying to make a concert or show, etc. 4 stars on food because the Calamari (we get it everywhere) was just average. More carrots, peppers and onion than calamari. My Gnocchi was also average, nothing spectacular. Best dishes of the night were the roasted spinach (tasted like it was cooked in a wood fired oven 😋) and the sorbets. Excellent. Would definitely eat here again and bring out of towners for the ambience, service and really good food.
