I have been here 3 times spread over the past 5 years and each time it has been a good experience. The good is better than you will get from most of the Italian chains and the place itself feels nice to be in, you have a lovely view in the summer with all the moored up boats. It is... More

We arrived as a party of six when the restaurant was quite busy but the staff were very accommodating and soon arranged a suitable table. We had wandered along the marina looking at several restaurants and we all agreed this was the most inviting. The service was prompt and the food excellent. A great night out and all at a... More

We arrived fairly late after visiting the theatre on a Sunday evening, having walked out of our first choice because they'd run out of all the dishes we'd fancied. We were served by a lovely cheerful server with a constant smile on her face and we were made to feel very comfortable. Some great dishes were being carried out to... More

I visited this restaurant with a group of friends (Friday 17th). Most of us hadn't seen each other for a few months so we were all really looking forward to it. I haven't been to this restaurant before even when it was O Sole Mio but I can honesty say what a fantastic evening we all had. The staff were... More

I hate writing stern reviews when a guest as it seems so ungrateful. However, in the interests of fairness as a critic it must be done. This was a rip-off. Take the seafood salad (£10.50) which arrived on a large oval plated with lettuce leaves, red onion rings and quartered tomatoes. Yes, where was the seafood? It had been decanted... More

Not for the first time I'm writing to congratulate O Sole Mio Two for another wonderful lunch. Nothing seems to be too much trouble & whitebait/calzone followed by 3 scoops of ice cream certainly guaranteed I didn't want anything more to eat on the day. Atmosphere in the restaurant is second to none & I'm already looking forward to my... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch by the waterside, good authentic pasta and risotto, hot and tasty and nicely presented. Courteous service even when the drinks waiter didn't speak much English but only Italian at last it was authentic and not a chain!. Disappointed the special lunch menu didn't apply on a Friday and only complaint would be its a bit pricey... More

In a spot where it's over-run with chain restaurant microwave specials, it's refreshing to find a quality 'independent'. Lovely cosmopolitan atmosphere, couldn't fault the food. Actually loved the service, nice n laid back and real Italians. A very pleasant afternoon

Food was some of the best I have had. A lovely holiday-esque atmosphere by the water.. But the service, DREADFUL. Had a 40 minute wait between starters and mains and every member of passing staff trying to avoid eye contact. Not a single one of them asked if we needed or wanted anything else.. Practically had to shout across the... More

I usually check tripadvisor before deciding where to eat but faced with a choice of several chains or an independent Italian the indie won easily. We just stopped for a quick bite to eat and a coffee. The staff were very accommodating, the children shared a pizza and I had coffee just as if we were in Italy. A family... More
