Dinner at Sotto.

We’ve been to Sotto a few times. Drinks here and some shared plates there. But for whatever reason, we’ve never gone to Sotto for a full-blown dinner. Maybe it was that there wasn’t an occasion that felt special enough. Maybe it was we just didn’t know what we were missing. With it being a month to the day since we were married in Jamaica, we finally felt like we had an occasion special enough to have dinner at Sotto. And finally use the gift card my sister, Shannon gave us a little while ago…

We started with the goat cheese & hazelnut honey bruschetta…

We shared a prosciutto arugula salad with parmigiano & lemon oil for the antipasta course. And wouldn’t you know, I completely forgot to take a photo of it. Then moved on to main event, the primi… (from the upper left) short rib cappellacci with shallot, amish butter and thyme, tonnarelli cacio e pepe with black pepper and pecorino, and finally, gnocchi alla romana with béchamel, sausage ragu & pecorino…

Unbelievable stuff. Luckily, I didn’t have to try to pronounce any of it. I just pointed. My Italian… she’s a not so good. Our favorite dish was the gnocchi and then the short rib cappellacci. The tonnarelli was delicious as well. It’s just that the other two were just, WOW! Everything had such great flavors. For dessert, we ordered the incredible little ricotta doughnuts that everyone raves about. They came with chocolate, pistachio and salted caramel dipping sauces …

Those things lived up to the hype. They were outstanding. The last amazing little donut…

After dinner, we had a drink at the bar…

What an amazing way to celebrate our first mini wedding anniversary. Thank you, Sotto! And thank you Shannon for the Sotto gift card! 🙂
