Appetizer never arrived. We were charged extra for putting anchovies on the Caesar salad. Shrimp was undercooked. Service was inattentive. We normally like this place, but tonight was an off night. Ugh!!!

Sotto Sopra is a delight. The food is always fresh and tasty. Try the short rib ravioli with mushrooms. Wonderful. I usually order the duck breast, which I love, but decided to try something different.

The server has worked there a long time, and she was nothing short of outstanding.

Wonderful Father's Day dinner last night. Food was delicious, portions perfect. Had appetizers & dessert and did not leave feeling full.
So happy you survived the pandemic and are back to indoor dining. You have not missed a beat. The service was outstanding! Well done!
Special thanks to our server (a gentleman who wore Italian flag mask)

Our family of 5 (3 children under 9) truly enjoyed our dinner at Sotto Sopra. The staff was kind and patient. The food was delicious - best duck I’ve had in Baltimore, and the ambiance was exactly what we needed to celebrate our son’s birthday. It was altogether wonderful. We highly recommend it.

The caprese salad (included a ball of mozzarella instead of slices; not ideal) had the toughest and most flavor-lacking tomatoes. Other than that, the food was delicious, albeit a slimmed down menu. Service was a bit slow, but they are likely recovering from staff shortages.

I love this place, but my only issue is that some of the portions are very small for the price. My boyfriend ordered a pasta dish and was still hungry after. My dish was a large portion and could not finish.

This place has been a favorite of ours for years. The food is consistently excellent. And the service competent. This last visit my dining partner had the seafood risotto. It was literally overflowing with clams mussels calamari fish and shrimp on a delicious tomato based risotto. I had a large piece of bronzino over a warm eggplant peppers onion arugula “salad”
The prices are reasonable for today’s market.
If you like “real” Italian food done right do yourself a favor a check this place out
