Burlington restaurant closed since COVID-19 hit has reopened


A Burlington restaurant that has been largely closed since the COVID-19 pandemic hit Vermont two years ago has reopened.

Sotto Enoteca, adjacent to Trattoria Delia on St. Paul Street, closed in March 2020. The underground cafe and wine bar served as a market called Sotto Provisions for a while, but was otherwise closed to diners until 2021.

The cozy restaurant reopened in January for private events and as “a way to spread out our Trattoria Delia guests”, according to Leslie McCrorey Wells, co-owner of both restaurants as well as the nearby Pizzeria Verita. Sotto Enoteca announced at the end of February on social networks that it was back with its own menu.

“Join us Wednesday-Sunday 5-9pm for pasta, small plates, delicious wine and that laid-back Sotto vibe,” the post read.

This menu “brings us back to pre-closure Sotto,” McCrorey Wells wrote in an email to the Burlington Free Press.

Sotto Enoteca in Burlington, a restaurant now known as Sotto Provisions Market, is featured November 27, 2020.

Prior to the pandemic, Sotto Enoteca welcomed diners on a first-come, first-served basis. In his email, McCrorey Wells wrote that the small restaurant was also “temporarily allowing limited reservations.”
