We had a group of people here including babies and toddlers. We all had a bit of everything. PIzzas although slightly smaller than say Zizzi were packed with topping so what it lacked in size certainly made up on the top. Loads of bread offered. There was too much oil in the balsamic dip so no balsamic ever stuck to... More

We were actually heading for another place to eat when we saw a pub that did food up a side road. After realising that almost all of the dishes on offer were accompanied by chips we walked on and soon saw The Soprano's. We walked in,and asked if we could have a table. After consulting the diary, we were told... More

We looked online for restaurant suggestions in Portsmouth and I'm pleased we chose Soprano's. There was a good range of choice on the menu and the food was delicious.

I took my elderly Mother out for her first Italian restaurant meal. I don't live in Portsmouth so it was thanks to Trip Advisor that I found this place. Thankfully I had booked as it was full except for my table waiting for us. The meals were delicious and plentiful and for my Mother (88) to say "Next time you're... More

Love this place. Been loads of times with various friends and family. Large portions - best chips ever! - and very reasonably priced. The spag bol is a big fave. Only drawback is seats not very comfortable and it could do with a bit of a pick me up. The owners - mother and son - are very obliging but... More

Have been here a few times before and took someone who is not a fan of pasta to this restaurant and they loved it as had more options than just pizza or pasta. We had the mixed mezze for starters, the soup of the day, calzone, pork fillet with a port jus and vegetables and the gnocci between four of... More

Dining is quite casual.The staff were pleasant but let you enjoy your evening without intruding. the food was very good (courgette & spinach soup to start; Soprano's Supreme pizza for main) - and I thoroughly enjoyed them (given had a bad cold,...
