Went tonight as two couples and the food was outstanding. by the end of the night, we were all satisfied. Had to carry myself out after 3 courses, and it worked out about 35 quid each

Prompt and friendly and efficient service coupled with good choice of food made for a great family meal out. As with most Italian restaurants children were welcomed The children's menu was good value and - judging by the children's enthusiastic eating - tasty. We had the Sunday special menu and were pleased with the quality and value. We will be... More

We have been visiting Sottovento for a number of years, the atmosphere is always very nice and the staff attentive and friendly. We enjoy the food which I would describe as traditional Italian. The Tribute nights are great nights out. The menu is limited on these nights but the choice is fine and value for money with a live act... More

When we asked for regular Pepsi, we were laughed at and told 'yes we know they're diet, but we don't have regular'. Would have been nice to know that before ordering. We then changed to lemonade and... More
