Fantastic Italian

Not much more to say except this is a little treasure of a restaurant and truly wish that we had an Italian of this calibre closer to home (Ruislip!). Everybody loved the food from my young nieces to all the adults and the service was impeccable as well.

Good authentic Italian food at a reasonable cost. Good vegetarian selection when we went. It is quite a small restaurant would advise booking as they are always busy.

A group of eleven friends went to the Soprano for our first night together in Southsea as our hotel didn't serve evening meals. The service was efficient and the staff friendly. We ordered a variety of dishes and all commented how much they enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The italian style dishes and wine are not expensive and overall it... More

I have visited this restaurant 4 or 5 times a year for about 8 years before catching the overnight ferry to Ouistreham. It is about 10 minutes from the ferry terminal. It is a family run restaurant and has a good menu ranging from pizza to filet steak, often including good fish dishes on the daily board. It is a... More

Went here last week with my girlfriend and we had a great time. The food was lovely and was presented really nicely too. Can't wait to return.

First time here was a week ago, on a Wednesday night. We got a table quickly, and ordered wine and two pizzas. The wine arrived quickly, but both of our glasses were dirty. The wine tasted watered down! When our food finally arrived (the table next to us got their pizzas first even though they ordered after us) one of... More

I first visited the restaurant for a night out with my other half. Initially we thoufht the restaurant looked extremely small, and were sat at a table rightbin the middle very close to people either side of us. After reading the menu and ordering drinks, I soon relaxed. The food is very reasonably priced, with lots of choice. I opted... More

We had not been to Southsea in a while and came across Soprano's. Quite by chance there was a table for two and despite a large number of children in the restaurant we still had a pleasant Saturday lunch. Both food and service was great, we will be back.

Food and service both very good. We had the fish platter to share for starters which was really great. I would recommend booking by phone as my email booking system didn't make its way to the waitress who seated us but they were nice enough to squeeze us in. We have tried a few times to get a table at... More
