Sottovento, a very cosy Italian Restaurant between Walkden and Farnworth. Try it soon, be welcomed by the very friendly staff. A very nicely appointed restaurant with a true flavour of Italy. Sample the comprehensive menu of authentic Italian food, with a good selection of English Fayre. Whatever the meal chosen it will be well cooked, and served hot.

Party of four at 6pm. We all chose the 3courses for £12.95. Disappointed my Creme brulee was actually served cold and without a crispy top !! When requesting for the bill, I asked if they accepted Hi Life cards and was told they did. However, then the bill changed to each items seperate cost and the £12.95 no longer stood,... More

We made a visit on a Friday evening for the early special £12.95 for 3 courses. The food was tasty but the portion size's were on the large size. Overall the four of us didn't have a bad word to say and we all enjoyed it. Nice relaxed atmosphere and the house red was easy to drink at £15 a... More

We visit this restaurant regularly and always enjoy the food, wine and friendly staff. The owner circulates to make sure that guests are always happy. The salmon dish was really nice and again we were too full to squeeze in a desert. Highly recommended!!

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.

The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was comfortable and had a pleasant family atmosphere, there were groups of all ages in the restaurant. The food and service was very good... More

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
