good restaurant gone bad

I am a daily customer in this restaurant. It was very good before from food to the service. it has changed a lot in after the Christmas. The food before was very decorated and clean in the plate but now it is very sloppy and the flavor has changed too. I complained to the manager but it seems like she don't care.

Unexpected Turnout

So I went to Sotto Cinque for Mother's Day. The food: The garlic bread was delicious, but the bread the restaurant put on the table was cold and hard, and the steak I asked to be medium-well was given to me medium-rare. But, the entrees were great overall.

Drinks: I asked for 5 wines, and was told by the waiter that he ran out of all 5, so I gave up on my pursuit for a nice wine and asked for a cocktail. My brother had a bay breeze and to our dismay, the bartender did not know how to make one. In addition, the long islands which I wanted with apple pucker instead of coke tasted more like a martini with cheap liquor.

Service: The waiter I had was a man who did not make us feel as welcomed as we had hoped on Mother's Day. He had bad timing, as before we sat down to look at the menu he was already asking us what we wanted to eat. In the beginning he came back often even though everyone was still looking at the menus. When all menus were put down and we knew what we wanted, getting him to come back to the table was like pulling teeth. Needless to say, I did not like our waiter.

Decor: the ambience was warm and cozy, a plus.

Cozy & Comfortable with a flare

I recently visited this restaurant based on a friend?s recommendation & I have to say I'm for ever pleased. The management and staff are welcoming and professional. The food is excellent with a price range to cater to every budget. The wine list is extremely impressive and the ambiance is both family friendly and yet jazzy for the mature after work crowd.

Mediocre Food

I decided to try this place because of the excellent reviews. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre at best. The arugula salad was overdressed with too much lemon juice, making for a mouth-puckering appetizer. The zucchini risotto was just awful--runny and relatively flavorless sauce and the risotto itself did not have the right texture at all.

Great food and staff. Lots of fun!!

If you like good food and reasonable prices, this is yor place. I have always had a great experience and food is such a delight. Then staff is always pleasant and the owner is always walking around to help the guest. if you have not tried Soto, make it your next stop. It will become a place you visit regularly!!

Do you like Italian food, great service, cute bartenders, and ambience? Come here!

I am, in all honesty, not the type of guy who likes Italian food... In fact, I didn't even WANT to go to this restaurant, but I listened to my brother-in-law, a man who does, quite certainly, enjoy Italian food-- Anyway, we, and by we, I mean my wife, daughter (14 months old), father-in-law, mother-in-law, and both brothers-in-law ate here and absolutely enjoyed the food. I ate the tortellini abiatta (excuse my spelling) and loved it-- My daugther, the 14 month old, thoroughly enjoyed my dinner and her mother's. The waiter even brought my daughter a plate of steamed broccoli (which she enjoyed)! My brother-in-law (the one who KNOWS Italian food) ordered ""Casa""... It was beyond tasty. Take his word for it because he knows Italian food (and yes, he HAS been to Italy): The food is exquisite! So.. Why am I reccommending this restaurant? I recommend this restaurant because I like good restaurants, and THIS is a good restaurant. Eat here and tell them the Kirks/Murrys from California sent ya! Capiche?

Excellent inexpensive food, great wine list, great service

Wow, I totally disagree with the last review.. this is one of the best places on the UES. The menu is not complicated and not too long. Jasmine is a wonderful server unless someone is overtly rude to her and this last review the person sounds really bitter and mean.. ""bar full of alcoholics and losers""... nice. How can it be over priced, they have pasta items for $6.00, and it is so delicious! Sotto is a great place filled with nice people, good wine and excellent service. I am sorry the last person seems so upset, but telling from their tone they probably are miserable with everything in life. Try Sotto, you will love!!!
