warm accomodating staff, excellent dessert – Have to say - as a person with food allergies - the staff and kitchen were accommodating and attentive. My pasta was cooked to al dente perfection. Evidence that someone in the kitchen knows what they are doing. Drinks were reasonably priced and when I peeked in the kitchen to thank the chef everything looked spotless. We enjoyed dinner and are looking forward to coming back for brunch I hear that the French toast is to die for!
I love this place – as a standard Italian Trattoria, Sotto Voce covers the bases. I've eaten here recently and was happy to see that it hasn't changed from the Old Sotto Voce that I used to frequent when I lived in the Slope. I enjoyed my light as air fried calmari with spicy tomato sauce and the mussels were full and briny in their white wine sauce. The spinach pesto pasta my friend and I shared was al dente and full of flavor. The ricotta cheese struck the right balance with the garlicy puree. The grilled salmon with honey glazed veggies was cooked medium exactly like I asked. My partners "branzino" (it does call it out as striped bass on the menu) was flakey and delicous - my partner only afforded me a little taste.
The espressos and capuccinos were good and the tiramisu was airy and light.
I liked the service - a lot of new faces of course, but it was attentive and friendly. I love the old family pictures on the walls and the waiter was happy to tell me the story behind each one. It was a fun distraction while we waited for our courses.
OEPS! Wrote about the wrong place – I was actually talking about Sette, which is one block further. Wrong Place - sorry!
Sette - awesome - Delice - great decor - super service!
something is wrong with the place – went for brunch two weeks ago there. We had to wait for everything - coffee, sugar and our dishes took way too long. The food was ok but bland. The food is not special enough to go back again
Please don't go here! – Never again. I will sure remember the food and the place for the ?how can they stay in business" experience. The occasion was father's day and made a reservation for 8 PM. We waited 40 minutes for the appetizers: salad, caponata and crostini (too much bread for the topping). these were dished requiring minimum preparation. The parmesan cheese on my salad was a distant cousin of parmesan. It consisted of two thin slices of very well dry, oozing, edge-wrinkled cheese tasting like cardboard. We again waited well other 40 minutes for the main course. My husband's stuffed pork smelled and tasted funny. He cut it open and it looked raw so he sent it back to be cook ed more. By the time he got the meat back the smell was even more intense. Basically, the meat was spoiled and just sent it back for good. My "branzino alla livornese" was a very thick piece of unnamed fish ( no branzino for sure) that tasted just ok until I got to the middle and it was raw with bloody streaks. Throughout this experimentation, condensation water from the ceiling kept dripping on my daughter's head. We could not wait to leave. No complimentary anything could have made us stay any minute longer. However the couple next to our table sent back their dishes and got complimentary spinach. Hope they at least enjoyed the veggie. Who paid for the rating of this restaurant on Zagat?
Slow and bad service – We went there for brunch last weekend and had to wait 40 minutes to get our coffees (asked 3 times). At that point we were already done with our first course and 2 watery mimosas. The all-you-can-drink mimosas are indeed a big rip-off, closer to fruit-punch in a carton, really. The waiters were clueless and not attentive at all. The food was ok (the salmon was good, but the yogurt was too watery), but the bad and slow service was a big downer and i could not wait to get out of there. The only thing that they brought promptly was the check.
Okay food – We ate here and were not blown away. The food was decent, it wasn't bad or anything, but it just wasn't A plus. I had the crostini sampler, and unfortunately, the crostini was under toasted, and the only one that i really enjoyed was the olive and anchovy tapenade. My pasta was fair, although it needed a good helping of pamesean to give it a little extra flavor. My partner had stuffed pork chops, which were a little tough, and he didn't like the sauce. It was definitely the weakest dish. If you go here, stick to some very basic dishes and you'll be okay.
Great pasta in the slope – Sotto Voce is one of the nicest restaurants in the slope, its pasta is always al-dente and cooked to perfection, their sauces are always creamy and not too heavy. Their spinach pesto penne is to die for!
The first time i went to sotto voce, we had a great meal and the waitress came over and gave us free limoncello shots that was from italy, and she said they were homemade. I love their lunch special, its $8 and includes a salad/soup/caprese salad, and pasta or meat special, with coffee/tea. The brunch is $12 and includes unlimited pound cake (homemeade) and mimosas, and complimentary OJ.
I highly recommend this restaurant, its always packed but i never wait more than 5 minutes for a table, i love it!
Fave restaurant in the Slope – I love this restaurant. I won't say I've loved every dish I've ever had there (I've had almost all of them) -- I thought the fettucine bolognese was a bit bland, and occasionally they neglect to put enough sauce on the pasta -- but overall, I just adore it. If you like chicken, the Pollo Portobello is amazing. Other great dishes: the eggplant and fresh mutz pasta, the fettuccine with chicken and artichokes, and for brunch, the french toast. Plus, I've never had a dessert there that didn't make me want to lick the plate. The atmosphere is warm and romantic, not stuffy, and the food is reasonably priced -- and much better than at a lot of the higher priced restaurants in the area. The service is also really good. Even when it's very crowded, the maitre d' tries to keep you informed of what's going on and when you'll be seated. The place is a gem.
Celebrity sightings and delicious food! – My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and it was delightful, delicious and fun. Plus - we were sta next to Steve Buscemi - a Park Slope local. GREAT night.
