Sarah

Fantastic place to eat, very very relaxed with a fantastic buzz, not to mention the waitress Sarah, who could pretty much put the entire ritz to shame for her fantastic service and honesty in the job. Thanks for an amazing night Mike and holly

This is a deservedly popular spot, particularly good for lunch. Always busy so best to book. I enjoyed a family birthday lunch here recently and ,as always, the cooked to order, fresh food was delicious.

If you are looking for a quality Italian meal at a great price in a relaxed atmosphere then come here. Probably best to book during the holidays. Deserves to be in the top 10 best restaurants in Portsmouth.

Looking at reviews on trip we picked Soprano's, we were not disappointed it was really tasty home cooked food. I had the pasta of the week which was cooked to perfection. My husband had a pizza which was a tad hot but extremely tasty. Others enjoyed their choices. The restaurant isn't huge and because the food is not mass produced... More

Having eaten here around a dozen times I have never, not once, had a bad course or a bad experience. The food is delicious and you can safely move away from pizza and pasta and be assured of a great meal. Service is friendly, wines are good an the beer is fresh add that to good Italian food and there... More

Have had the pleasure of a few evenings at Soprano's recently and on each occasion always been very tasty food. Varied menu that guarantees good quality Italian food at affordable prices. The restaurant is cosy with a nice busy atmosphere. The service was slightly slow on two nights when the place was full, but that's only a minor setback given... More

We booked late on the same day so just made the last sitting around 9pm. The first thing you notice is that it is on one of the main drinking drags in Southsea, albeit at the quieter end but don't let this put you off. We (2 adults, 2 children) were the only family in there and it was a... More

Got taken here for a birthday treat. The restaurant was very busy, the staff were however very attentive. I had the bruschetta starter which I can honestly say is the best starter that I have ever eaten. The food was good quality, large portion size and piping hot. Would highly recommend.

I am very fussy about eating Italian out after living in Italy for 9 months. This was very good, as a family we had varied meals.. Steak/risotto/pasta/gnocchi, each full of flavour and authentic.
