    Cocktails were very good. The beef carpaccio was a little bland actually. The fried polenta was so good, would recommend! I had the gnocchi which was good. Husband had the duck breast which was very good. Dessert was cheesecake and chocolate cake - both very good. Waiter Derek was excellent and very friendly and attentive. Would recommend and will return.

    I took my parents out for a nice meal, we had a fantastic night. The food was amazing. The place was beautiful. Done up for Christmas which was nice. The staff were friendly and efficient. It was all in all a lovely evening. And in terms of value for money it wasn’t too bad. We each had a cocktail and an entree and shared a desert plus we also shared an appetizer. It all came to about £200. Would highly recommend for a nice evening out or a celebration.

    Great ambience, very romantic. The drinks and appetizer (mussels) were great but the main dishes we got - seafood risotto and fruit di mare were bland and a bit overcooked. A bit of a disappointment given the price and ratings!

    This was my first visit, but definitely not my last. Took my mom to celebrate her birthday. Immediately upon walking in, I thought this feels really good. Coat check was in the rear and we had to hang up the coats ourselves, but it was pretty quick to do, but would love to have an attendant handle this small task for guest. We sat down and was greeted pretty quickly by our server with water and request for drinks. We started with the Calamari (the have more than one, can’t remember the name). It was delicious! Lightly fried with peppers and lemons - yes lemons and they were delicious!.. The bread came out and was a little cool for my taste, so we requested it to be warmed - No Problem. We selected Fruit Di Mare with a Squid ink Spaghetti for both of us. The food arrived pretty quickly. I noticed that the portion were a little off and brought it to the waiters attention. They explained that the Chef unknowingly probably separated it that way and ordered another half ordered to be made for the table. Perfect! I finished the meal with the Chocolate Lava Cake with Vanilla Gelato for dessert, which was served warmed - DELICIOUS. In my opinion as a native Baltimorean, I have been doing myself a disservice by sleeping on Sotta Sopra. Usually restaurant go down after so many years, this one is in a class of its own. Talk about hidden gem. People were coming in droves as we were eating. They all knew how amazing the place was. I even saw people dining alone! I can’t wait to return and try another dish. Im thinking New Years Eve or soon there after. Take it from me - a true Foodie - run, don’t walk to Sotta Soprano and discover FRESH true Italian cuisine in the heart of Baltimore (Mt. Vernon). Ciao Bella!

    I LOVE this place! We went for Christmas Eve dinner and it could not have been nicer! We created our own dining experience by splitting lots of various things from the menu, including wine so that we could create wine pairings for some of our selections. Thank you for making our experience so special!

    Found this amazing restaurant from a Google search because it was near an event that my wife and I were attending. We were extremely happy with the food, drink, and staff. Everything came out quickly and tasted amazing. The staff was polite, helpful, and very courteous. There are so many amazing options on the menu. We will be going back. Beautiful intimate restaurant.

    We have been going to Sotto Sopra for many years, and always receive wonderful food and enjoy the ambiance. The only disappointing thing was that they changed their recipe for their famous focaccia bread and it's not quite as good.

    Best Squid Ink Pasta in Baltimore! Given the number of great Italian Restaurants in Baltimore, that's saying something. Decor, ambiance, drinks, dinner and service were terrific as they always are; it is truly the entire experience. Sotto Sopra is my favorite restaurant in Baltimore.

    Wonderful dinner on a chilly Sunday night. Pastas and wine were delicious. We shared the tiramisu and I did think this was a small portion for the price. Definitely more of a special occasion spot. The lighting was perfect and it created a great atmosphere with the soft music that was playing. Would definitely come again!

    This is a fabulous restaurant! The service the plating of the food and the quality of the food is second to none. A very classy ambience with relatively easy on the street parking. No valet parking but I’ll walk the extra half a block just to eat there any time. It has been consistent for the last 15 years that my wife and I have been going there. Never a miss no matter what we order. Don’t miss going there!
