We ate breakfast at Sotano each morning while staying at the la Splendida hotel. I usually got an omelet with mushrooms, bacon, and cheese and it was always very tasty. The cook even added little ham pieces on a couple of days and the omelet was even better. My husband always got the full English breakfast with baked tomato, mushrooms,... More

Great for sun downers or a casual meal with friends, you can even take your dog along, on a leash. Beautiful setting, friendly service, super relaxed and the food is always good.

On a beautiful autumn day we sat on the raised deck at watched cyclists, skate boarders, walkers runners and appreciated our city at its finest. We ordered the Mediterranean Breakfast on the waiter's recommendation and were not disappointed. It is made with halloumi, bacon, avocado, rocket with a poached egg and sun dried tomato paste. So unusual and delicious. All... More

Four of us had lunch here the other day. The weather was pleasant and we decided to sit outside. The waiter was friendly and efficient. We ordered different dishes and all were satisfied. My fish was very good and my wife said her burger was delicious. One of the party pointed out that the table was "sticky" and another thought... More

Stayed at the hotel above the restaurant for a few days so frequented this place over the time. Location is beautiful and great. Breakfast sucks - I wouldn't bother going here for that. Pretty standard and nothing to rave about. Their food however is good food, enjoyed all starters and mains tried. Was thoroughly impressed with their starters, perfect portioning... More

My boyfriend and I come to Sotano whenever we get the change. The food is consistently excellent. I really enjoy their sushi and I find that the wines are affordable! However the service could be improved, but overall great menu and tasty food. On Sundays the restaurant is really vibey so I would recommend going then.
