Italian food is a food almost everyone can appreciate. This is especially true at one of our Cincinnati favorite restaurants - Sotto. Our second ranked Cincinnati restaurant Sotto delivers each and every time. (See our top 7 restaurants in Cincinnati list). As we like to do, we decided Sotto was so good that it deserved an in depth review.

What We Like About Sotto

The food and the atmosphere combine in Sotto to make a very unique experience that is unlike any other in Cincinnati. The main dish that we enjoy from the restaurant is one that you would not expect in Cincinnati, the octopus alla plancha is amazing. The octopus dish is served with eggplant, zucchini, potato and lemon oil. For those that maybe aren't octopus fans try our second favorite dish the short rib cappellacci.

Finish it all off with Sotto's amazing desert menu. Hard to narrow down favorite but think you can't go wrong with the ricotta donuts with three sauces.

What We Did Not Like About Sotto

The main item that we did not care for when we were at Sotto is one of the Bruschetta options and that is the chicken liver mousse with pistachio. If you do not mind liver, then this is a great option for you, but for us liver is a food that we cannot really stomach. 

Our Rating Out Of 10 Stars - 9.5 Stars

Sotto is a restaurant that has a lot going for it. From great atmosphere to excellent food Sotto has it all. This Cincinnati favorite has really brought a touch of Rome and Italy to Cincinnati. If you want to have some great Italian food and wine in Cincinnati then make sure you check out Sotto.
