By now, Sotto is regarded as a stalwart of L.A.'s Italian dining scene—and with good reason. A wood-burning oven is the heart and soul of this basement eatery in restaurant, where pizzas and pastas are supplemented with fennel-crusted pork chops and prime ribeye. The oven is a Neapolitan hearth, built by real Neapolitans for the making of true Neapolitan-style pizzas. And the pizzas are very, very good—pillowy white dough spotted with black blisters and a sparse smear of tomato sauce, a few oozy globs of fresh mozzarella and a leaf or two of basil. If you stick around for dessert, opt for the cannoli Siciliani, made with ricotta, orange marmalade, pistachios and chocolate.

Okay there is a very high sprinkling of pretension here. The menu is a tad too LA for me I am afraid; they are trying too hard and it shows. The waiter that I had was a tad too stern, inflexible and well not helpful at all... I just wanted a simple side salad, is that too much to ask... but no I was presented with a pile of green covered in nuts and fruit... well they did remove the nuts, and promised to removed the fruit but in the end forgot! 

I am sorry if your customer asks for a simple side salad and you do a fancy side salad why is it such a stressor to remove the unnecessary additions and just serve the leaves, well presented? Sorry... very poor service.


The pizza is OFF THE CHARTS !! You must try the guanciale, the fennel pollen, and the carpaccio. Omg and the dessert. Its in a really cool basement area of Pico-Robertson and its off the beaten path. MUST TRY IT
