Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Loved it since years ago when this charming italian restaurant was at a different location. I come here every time I am in phuket. Fresh ingredients, beautifully cooked authentic italian cuisine and cosy environment with beautiful hosts. Thumbs up!!!

Only began coming here recently and it is already a firm favourite. Smallish menu and a selection of daily specials but it is still difficult to choose. My favourite dish has been the seafood risotto which is delicious. Portion sizes and just right too and...it’s quality over quantity. A good wine list too and some can be bought by the glass and still very reasonably priced. Looking forward to coming back soon.More

This is a really lovely little restaurant in Nai Harn, Rawai. Very comfortable and smart decor. The menu is not large - which is a good sign - and is accompanied by a daily specials board. There is no pizza here. Staff and owners all...provide a warm welcome and the chef takes the order which is a nice touch. We have been here a number of times and just adore the ambience, food and wine that are available. The pasta and risotto options are what we focus on and they do not disappoint. Beautiful dishes of food prepared with real care. The wine list is also excellent. Well done Sottovento and thank you.More

This was a lovely place with nice staff and a good choice of dishes. We opted to sit outside and although at the roadside a nice garden area disguised this. Or you can sit inside where there is air con. Decent prices.

This casual dining is well worth a visit. Easy to find on the main road to Rawai - it is well worth a visit! Everything we ordered was excellent with a very authentic italian taste. Good, quick service and not expensive. Give it a try!

It's not just the location - which provides an amazing view of Chalong Bay on Phuket's east coast. It's the food and the service. My girlfriend and I come to Sottovento every time we get our paycheck (monthly) and special occasions (which we might make...up, just to eat here again). This is our go-to spot for high-quality pasta dishes that are just so rich in flavor, we're sad when it's over. Our choices every time: two bruschettas, and two pastas (usually one of them is tagliatelli amatriciana). I cannot recommend the amatriciana enough, it's just so delicious! Thailand, despite being the land of smiles, actually is not a great place for great restaurant service. Sottovento is an exception - the always are courteous, answer you directly with recommendations, and are remember you! Such a great place for families and couples.More
