Lovely meal for two

Sottovento is an excellent italian restaurant situated on Albert street in Farnworth. This was my first visit and the service was very good. The view from outside hides the gem within, a very nicely presented family establishment with staff that are very attentive and polite. The food quality was... read more

We ordered two starters and a garlic bread. Hi Life is two for one so we expected one of the starters to be knocked off the bill. Instead they knocked off the garlic bread, When I complained the owner said garlic bread was a starter. It may be in this restaurant but in other italian restaurants its a side order... More

We have been to this restaurant four times now and it never fails to disappoint us. We have taken both friends and family and all have agreed with our opinion. The food is always delicious, they have a good selection on the menu, meats, pasta, fish, pizza and vegetarian. The staff are friendly and courteous and you are never left... More

Sottovento never disappoints, it is one our favourite restaurants. My son adores it, the children menu is great & very reasonable. They treat us like long lost family, the waiters are good with children. The food is delicious & purse friendly. I always come away happy. I have been visiting Sottovento for the past four years. Highly recommended.

Went here on Tuesday night and had a great meal. Ordered spicy meat balls to start and the sauce was excellent. For main, I went for Bistecca Dolcelatte and it cam medium-rare as I requested. Service was quick and the food was hot. Would go back again.

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!!
