Fantastic Italian

Been many times over the years. Food always good, great pizzas and pasta. Had whole sea bass this visit, cooked to perfection and decent value too. Lovely friendly staff. Book ahead as they get busy and its pretty small.

A strange restaurant. Our starters were all rather tasty. I had the mussels, which were very good. And very French for an Italian restaurant. The menu didn't seem to make a lot of sense. Main courses were most odd. My friend's seafood risotto was no such thing. It was seafood and rice, at best. My Quattro stagioni pizza only had... More

Compliments to the chefs at Sopranos - no problems with the food, has always been good when we have visited! The wine by the glass is expensive for the quality, but no worse than most restaurants in England. The waiters are not welcoming simply because early sitting diners are immediately reminded that their table will be needed again 8.00 p.m.... More

Selected to eat here on the spur of the moment without a reservation but this was not a problem at 12.30pm on a Saturday but when we came to leave an hour later the restaurant had filled up. I noticed the Hall of Fame certificate in the window as we entered. I have just had to research this as I... More

Busy enough place so I guess our experience may not be typical. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, a good start. The garlic bread (I had the cheese on top) was like a mini pizza and delicious. Mains however were disappointing. We would not go back, sorry folks. The wine was on the high price, but acceptably priced.

This restaurant was definitely a great find! The menu is always fresh and the food tasty and colourful. The sweets are also to die for and worth it if you have enough room! The staff are always friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is laid back and fun. If you have a special occasion or just want a nice place... More

Visited here last night for the first time and was very impressed with a couple of small reservations. My chicken risotto with spinach, pine nuts, mushroom and red onion was to die for. Rarely have l tasted anything so gorgeous.My friend had tagliatelle with chicken and broccoli and was equally impressed. This came in a largish bowl which unfortunately filled... More

Found this place on the way to the esplanade. Managed to get a table for lunch but most were booked so worthwhile booking if you are going along to avoid a wasted journey. We had a fantastic Italian meal, shared a pizza and a chargrilled chicken salad with crispy noodles. The food was very flavoursome. The pizza was thin and... More

We've been to Sopranos's many times over the last few years and it's been excellent every time. Not much to say apart from excellent food, great service and very reasonable pricing.
