We often have Sunday roast here with my young granddaughter. The food is good ( Sunday roast is also traditional in Italy) and reasonably priced (about £9.50 for roast with all the trimmings) and the staff always make us welcome, making a particular fuss of our granddaughter - and indeed, all... read more

We had a lovely meal here, had the Christmas party menus which at £21.95 for 3 courses was excellent value. Food was fresh and service was very good, we will be back.

Excellent food and service, friends that were visiting said they felt like they were in Italy haha. If you were to have a gripe it could be that starters were too big, but we were with two hungry men so it didn't matter.

We needed a meal on a Sunday evening in Portsmouth prior to taking the ferry to France. Unfortunately the Italian we have been to a few times is closed then, so on their recommendation we tried O Sole Mio, and what joy! Beautiful freshly cooked food from an extensive menu, a very pleasant restaurant and probably delightful on a summer's... More

We managed to get a table for 8 on a very busy Friday evening at short notice, the food was lovely and hot, generous size. Very good service, we all enjoyed the experience and would definitely visit again. We ordered 2 bottles of Prosecco which were a bit pricey at £26 per bottle but I think this is most probably...

Highly recommend this restaurant. The service is a little slow but if your prepared for this the food is most certainly worth waiting for.

Popped in for a pre film meal. Service was quick and polite and the food was good and hot. The price however was very over the top. Two plates of standard spaghetti and two beers £30+ not so good.

This is the third time we have been here. Eaten outside twice recently and very impressed with the quality, quantity and service. Chose to sit inside as it had been recently raining. Friendly welcome as soon as we arrived. Had the choice of several tables. Tables presented as a higher class restaurant. Large linen napkins were folded and placed on... More

What can I say have been going to O SOLE MIO for years always a pleasurable experience. Good wholesome food, great service, great atmosphere, fantastic value for money. When the weather is good you can sit outside and I feel as if I am transported back to the enjoyable holidays in Italy. Always recommend to everyone!
