If you like seafood this restaurant is a must. Very cosy and warm inside. We hadn't reserved a table and walked in off the street. Very welcoming. My seafood risotto was the best I have ever had. Other family members had the mussels, gnocchi and linguine with lobster. Could not fault any meal served to us.

Nice little restaurant overlooking the Lake. Great fish and wine with excellent service! After walking around the town we decided on Sottovento because of it's location and menu. Two couples enjoyed the pleasant leasurely atmosphere. Would highly recommend. While in town check out the Olive wood products (cutting boards, etc) in some of the smaller shops, much better prices then... More

We ate here on the last night of our holiday which was a Monday. Even so the restaurant was busy and we were lucky to have one of the few remaining walk-in tables (which went about 10 minutes after we arrived). Sottovento is well set out and is aiming at a higher end than many of the restaurants in Passignano.... More

Food Ok when it came. Prawns indifferent but rest of the party enjoyed theirs. What was not enjoyable was a)having to convince the waiting staff we had reserved a table, b)waiting at least 10 minutes to order a drink, c) being told red wine en route only to have to chase 3 X and then it appeared as we were...

Cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. Authentically Italian (with an English speaking waitress who was sooooo patient and kind!) We visited with 2 children (6&9) one who is dairy intolerant. Not a problem, they asked which bits she liked and didn't and made her her own pasta dish. Our food was amazing (I had lobster risotto and he had Sea... More

We visited with our 2 children (7 and 9 years). Although I would describe it as a grown up restaurant the staff were wonderful with the children and made some plain pasta for them as the menu was not child friendly. Beautiful restaurant and a great comprehensive menu and a nice change from pizza and pasta. Me and my husband... More

This is by far one of the nicest restaurants in Passignano. The food is really a cut above the rest, both in terms of quality and presentation. Unusually for Italy, the front of house is entirely staffed by attractive young women. They specialise in raw fish, which they serve in a dozen different ways. I had their sashimi of salmon... More
