We arrived at Sotto Sopra for our 6:45 P.M. reservations to find the restaurant bustling – it was packed for Restaurant Week. The hostess apologized that our table was not ready. It seems the guests were having such a good time that they were not leaving. We can understand that. Riccardo offers one of the finest menus for Restaurant Week... More

Italian finer dining with family and Sotto Sopra dining during restaurant week made for a great choice! The three course menu had more options than common for restaurant week, and it was the menu of the evening. Really appreciated that variety and the upscale approach that enabled the wide array.

We thoroughly enjoyed this farm to table Italian restaurant on a recent visit. The food was delicious and was presented beautifully. For example, the Caesar salad was served upright in a phylo dough cup. It was dressed perfectly! I wish we were in town to enjoy their price fix Opera night dinner or the $20 two course lunch. Will definitely... More

A great authentic fine dining experience in downtown Baltimore. Very friendly wait staff, well made dishes, nice Godfather atmosphere. We had a nice bottle of wine suggested by our waiter and a delicious entree. I'd go back any time.

I recently took my staff to Sotto Sopra for a holiday lunch. The hostess was very accommodating for a large group. They gave us a large table away from the rest of the lunch crowd and catered to our group. The food was delicious and the service was great. I would definitely come back and plan to come to for...

I love this restaurant. It is a must-dine every time I visit Baltimore. The ambiance is great, the staff is friendly and accommodating, the menu is varied but not too big, and the pork osso buco is out of this world. You will not be disappointed

My husband and I went here last night with our cousins around 9 p.m. and the place was packed. I have never been to Baltimore before. We hung out at the bar and received some great suggestions from the bartender about what to order. We split the Veal Agnolotti and ordered the goat cheese salad and calamari. The service and...
