Marko Sotto


Sotto has been a fixture of San Francisco’s hospitality industry for over two decades. After spending over 10 years at one of San Francisco’s iconic seafood restaurants, AQUA, Sotto moved on work under Michael Mina (General Manager; RN74), then was mentored by San Francisco restaurateur Adriano Paganini as Director of Operations (Back of the House Restaurant Group). Marko then launched 2 companies;  Sotto Group Hospitality Management & Consulting, and his own concept Barzotto Pasta/Pizza/Wine Bar.

Clients for Sotto Group include, Brandon Jew (Mister Jiu's/Moongate Lounge), Daniel Patterson (Alta), Salt Partners (B-Side), and Dustin Valette (The Matheson Healdsburg).

With the creation and development of Barzotto, Marko looks to help build a restaurant brand that pulls the best attributes from his experience, combining the highest of hospitality standards, a modern aesthetic, product quality, and value to their guests.
