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

Went for a meal with my husband on Saturday night. Restaurant is very well set out, lovely relaxed atmosphere. I ordered the goats cheese bruschetta which was fresh and tasty. Good sized portion for a starter. My husband had the mussels, which he was very happy with. My risotto main was delicious and my husbands sea bass fillet was cooked... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Spoilt for choice with the menu. Excellent, tasty food and great service. Especially the 'little helper' who was a credit to his dad. Will definitely be going back

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
