Whether you’re accustomed to juicy deep dish or the giant pizza pies with a thin crust – the big city has all the options at your walking beck and call.

‘Sotto’ means under and ‘casa’ means home. The shop is, quite literally, nestled under a brick townhome. It’s less about location and more about feeling that authentic Italian charm. Oh, and the pizza is quite tasty as well. We delightfully suggest ordering up that Aglio, Olio. Think: mozzarella, ricotta, garlic, hot chili flakes, and basil.
