This little bistro really is a corner of Italy, the quirky layout gives the feel of you dinning out in an old Sicilian restaurant and the authentic, very tasty food just adds to your experience. The staff are incredibly friendly(without being over zealous) and certainly know the menu and wine list inside out. I have eaten at Soto Soto on... More

The staff is friendly and the food was fresh and delicious. We went based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. My husband had the gnocchi and I had the fettuccine Bolognese, both very filling and very tasty. They were nice enough to make a meal to go for a tired child back at our flat. It was so... More

Place is really authentic, very small and cosy. Had a rabbit stew and sausage with lentils which were both delicious made with good quality ingredients. I like the Italian radio playing in the restaurant, really adds a nice touch and almost anything is better than Ed Sheeran which is played literally everywhere else. Service was great too!

Sat outside on the cobbled street on a warm summer's evening. Had a lovely meal served by Italian waiters. Will be returning this summer.

What an intimate, delightful and authentic Italian restaurant! We were lucky enough to go on the warmest evening of the year so far and it didn't take much imagination to feel like we were in Rome or Florence! Great food, service and hospitality, and the lasagne and tiramisu were up there amongst the very best I've ever eaten over the... More

This lovely restaurant near the Royal Crescent in Bath is one of our favourites. Why I hear you ask? Well any restaurant deserving my approbation needs to provide delicious food, great atmosphere and fantastic hospitality. Franco and Darix our hosts provide all three by the " carico secchio ".

If you want real Italian food this is the place for you, and reasonably priced! Went here for a meal with a friend and enjoyed it so much we would go again, although unfortunately we live 160 miles away. It is a small restuarant and a little cramped with diners sat close either side, however the friendly staff and warm... More
