The food was excellent and all the staff are so helpful and polite always smiling they are a credit to Sottovento. Well done everybody... More

Have been to this restaurant many times for romantic meals and big family gatherings. The food is superb, service sublime and ambience is fabulous. I can't believe this place has disappointed others. Avoid Danieli's in Walkden and Puccini's in Swinton - this place surpasses them in spades.

My partner and I book my Aunt for a belated birthday dinner last Saturday night. We always take her to Sotto Vento when visiting from London as both food and service are usually very good. However, my fish was undercooked and I politely and discretely said I was unable to eat it because of this. The Manager (I think it... More

Haven't eaten here for a while. Called in Sunday without a reservation. They were busy but found us a table. Small car park or you can park on the road outside. Very reasonably priced often with daily specials. Food was good and service attentive and friendly. It's an unpretentious place and caters for local families really well. Would happily eat... More

Cracking good restaurant with great service and food. Value for money. We particularly like the house wine which comes in Litre bottles.

As you'd expect on a Saturday evening, Sottovento was quite busy. I reserved online a week before when I arranged for the added extras of an 80th balloon and a birthday cake. Our party of 11 was very well catered for... 2 children, aged 9 and 4, ate from the kids menu, which kept them happy! Plus staff were able... More
