Great restaurant. Recommend

Lovely restaurant. The staff are very helpful and it has a nice homely feel about it. There were around 15/20 people in the restaurant and the service was at a nice pace; giving you plenty of time to relax. I had a garlic pizza sharing bread as my start and a cheese and tomato calzone for my main... read more

We decided to go for a bite to eat and Port Solent is always one of our top destinations as there is a good choice of places to eat. O Sole Mio 2 is always our first choice of places to eat here, the staff are so friendly and welcoming, the food is always so tasty and never ever disappoints.... More

Big choice and great value, wine is a little on the higher price range but good, the food is what it's all about and that was really good.

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 children. They even spend time with us, helping us... 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.
