Went to Sottovento last night with friends. We really enjoyed the food. Starters were fantastic and main meals lovely too. The only problem we had was the staff. The waiters were not very friendly and did not look very happy. Also we found it quite strange and uncomfortable that the waiters were all men and talking to each other in... More

Very decent starters, waiter being a little surprised that we asked for main course to be served on warmer plate. Just that we prefer our food to be hot, rather than tepid. Our steak was topped with an unusual but delicious prawn combination and the most exquisite sauce. All cooked to perfection. Pleasant but unobtrusive staff. We shall be returning... More

I dined here and had a cannelloni, nice surroundings but that's all I can say that was good. The cannelloni was a cheesefest, I like cheese but that was a joke. Have you heard about the nations health problems?

Thank you for you review. On Cannelloni and Lasagne we only use Bechamel sauce, not a cheese sauce. If you are unhappy with your meal please inform a waiter who would have been able to arrange for another Cannelloni to be cooked without the sauce or provided you with an alternative meal. More

My family go for meals here a lot and we always have a nice time. The staff are always pleasant and welcoming, regardless of whether you are a large party or in a couple. The food is always lovely and they are very helpful with making slight alterations to the menu.

My wife and i visited this restaurant recently and we will be returning very soon. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. We both had a starter and main course and left feeling really full as the portions were huge. See you soon Sottovento.

Living locally we have visited this restaurant a few times over the last couple of years. We have always enjoyed the food and it is really good value for money. The service is also faultless, whether just going as a couple or as part of a large group we still receive the same attention and service. Will be visiting again... More

We have just been to Sottovento and I had to write a review as I am so impressed with the food, the staff (Antonio and Elan 'Roberto'), the service and the prices. The food was excellent, as was the welcome we got and the service couldn't be faulted. We WILL be going again. Well done Sottovento.
