Excellent

Went here for lunch, it was a busy Saturday and we had booked. The service was superb the staff could not have been nicer. We had garlic breads to share and then a main course which was all lovely. I would definatly recommend this small Italian in Southsea.

Given the TripAdvisor reviews, I was very disappointed with this restaurant. As a group of 9, I ordered bread and olives as my starter. The breads were distinctly not Italian, and they took an hour to be cut and delivered to my table. Granted, mine wasn't the only table in the restaurant, but still, it was too long. My main... More

This is the best traditional Italian in Portsmouth. The food is superb, the only downside is that it is quite small and very popular so it is difficult to get a table on short notice. Book in advance to avoid disappointment!

I was quite surprised not to like it more, bearing in mind the other reviews, but it seemed pretty average to me I'm afraid. Quite a cafeteria-like ambience, no frills, the staff (none apparently Italian) were only just coping (a busy Saturday, yes, but it's not very big!). One girl was clearly very new and not supervised. The food and... More

A very pleasant experience. The food was very good and so was the service. The area is very competitive with many restaurants and this is one of the better ones.

What an amazing little restaurant. Went here for a friends birthday lunch. Brilliant amount of choice of things to eat and drink, along with some good lunch time deals. The food was simply amazing and the staff could not have been friendlier. Would defiantly recommend and will defiantly be returning

Had another lovely lunch today at Sopranos with my wife. Looking forward to visiting again throughout 2016. Today we shared a Pesto & sundried tomato bread topped with melted mozzarella. For my mains I had my favourite of Chargrilled chicken, sliced avocado, red onion, mixed leaf salad, with a topping of crispy noodles and crispy Parma Ham and a drizzle... More

Found Soprano's by accident, looked at the two course lunch offer for £7.95 in the window, saw how full it was and went in. A bright, clean colourful interior, fairly basic furniture, immaculate cutlery and a great looking menu. Looking round at other table's food and still captivated by the two course lunch, we ordered it. The service from the... More

Great hosts, great genuine food. Love the spicy pizza. Pasta fresh and tasty too. Wine good and all nicely priced. You'll enjoy it.
