There's no shortage of Italian BYOs in and around Center City, but Sotto, from Luigi Basile of Old City favorite Radicchio, has brought his from-the-boot touch to an unexpected location. Jet south to north on 24th Street and you'll find the quaint walk-up eatery, open for lunch and dinner, just before the Walnut Street Bridge overpass. Simple, flavorful pastas and pizzas rule the day here, while ever-changing specials mix up the feel beyond traditional Italo-American.
The out-of-the-way location makes Sotto
the perfect place for a quaint, quiet romantic dinner (or even just a dinner on your own!) when you don't want to run into anyone you know. More time to down pasta.
