Very good Restaurant

Had a reservation for 4 on a Friday night. Very friendly and the services was really good. Reasonably priced. It was really busy but there was no delay between services.

It was our first trip to Soprano's after hearing fantastic reviews and we weren't disappointed! Wonderful food and the staff were very nice. Extremely reasonable prices and we loved the free jelly beans!

Had a lick of paint and a bit of a re-furb since my last visit (was over a year ago admittidly!) but still retains that buzzy atmosphere and good to see the classics still on the menu. A real good local independent Italian!

This was my first visit here and I really enjoyed it. There were 6 of us and we booked about a month in advance yet the later sitting was only available showing booking is definitely essential.

We had previously visited several years ago & decided to return when meeting up with friends ... we all very much enjoyed the food; service & ambience were very good. From the veggie Mediterranean mezze, which we all shared, we all then chose a different pasta dish - none of us were disappointed. The food was fresh, very well cooked... More

The food was good, tasty and well seasoned. What made it really stand out was the price. The two of us had a drink each, starter and main. Total bill was £44! I can't remember the last time I paid that little for good food. Place was packed and there was a good, lively atmosphere. Staff were friendly even though... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to eat in Southsea. The food is brilliant and the range of dishes is really good without being too filled. The service is wonderful also. I am writing blogs on restaurants I like, to see what else I had to... More
