TROVVEN Insider Intel:

We touched based with Sottacasa for the total 411. Take notes:

What's the vibe at Sottocasa?

The Vibe? We are a real Italian Pizzeria and all our customer says that  is a cozy place with an authentic Italian vibe, we are family friends but also nice for couple or group of people

What's a must-order on the menu?

Definitely Pizza Boscaiola (base Margherita with hot Italian sausage, mushrooms and gorgonzola cheese) for the white pizza lovers, Aglio olio (mozzarella, ricotta, garlic, peperoncino and basil) don’t forget our homemade tiramisu.

Why is Sottocasa the perfect pit-spot during a visit to Columbia?

Because right next to the university you can find a piece of Italy!
