Sotto Sopra, Amagansett, Review - The Place to Be

Sotto Sopra is the place to be if you want to dine on good food with great atmosphere.  At 10 p.m the place was jumping.  Everyone there was having a great time.   Although a casual place to dine, the restaurant was gorgeous.   While it's located in the middle of a block in Amagansett, it felt as if you were dining in a lush paradise.

As busy as it was, I was quite impressed with the way the servers manuervered the narrow isles carrying their drinks and food.  They had it down to a science and managed to be ultra-professional at all times.  Rose, the managing partner, ran around herself, making sure everyone had their drinks and was happy with their dishes. 

 

Northern Italian eatery Sotto Sopra in Amagansett is delighting diners this 2015 season and is inviting them on a culinary journey that highlights the region’s traditional flavors and cooking methods. Under the direction of Managing Partner Rose Evangelista, Sotto Sopra has quickly become one of the most sought-after restaurants on the East End, known for its frequent celebrity guests, relaxing atmosphere, exceptional service, and fresh, flavorful fare.

Sotto Sopra’s expertly crafted menu developed by Executive Chef Fermin Jimenez which takes advantage of the restaurant’s wood-burning oven to offer up freshly baked breads, crispy Italian style pizza and whole roasted fish such as Branzino al Forno (whole-roasted Italian Sea Bass with charred tomato aioli). Deliciously fresh salads such as Insalata di Formaggio di Capra e Melone (goat cheese, melon and prosciutto salad, topped with candied pistachio), antipastos such as Robiola Crostini (warm crostini topped with Robiola cheese, grilled figs and spiced walnuts, drizzled with orange vinaigrette), and impeccably flavored pasta and rice dishes including Risotto Granchio (saffron Aborio rice cooked all'onda, with crabmeat and spring onions), round out the menu along with classic "Bisteccheria" options such as Filet Mignon (tender, prime steak cut of beef cooked to order).

To complement the cuisine, Sotto Sopra offers an extensive wine list, as well as a menu of delightful signature cocktails including the Rose Orchid (Death’s Door Gin, St. Germain, prosecco, grapefruit and hibiscus), Sotto 75 (Farmer’s Organic Gin, St. Germain, champagne, blueberry and lime juice) and South Fork (Jameson Irish Whiskey, mint, cucumber, lime, and orange juice).

Sotto Sopra’s traditional cuisine is contrasted by its modern décor, creating a thoughtful, warm aesthetic. Drenched in sunlight, Sotto Sopra’s airy interior features an open-style design concept, cedar-paneled walls, sleek black and wood table and chairs, industrial style lighting and fixtures, and bright white color accents. Toward the rear of the restaurant, Sotto Sopra’s floor-to-ceiling windows open up to reveal a charming outdoor patio and lush garden.
