Mains tried: Chicken Risotto Tagliatelle all'Azzurro Canneloni Pizza: Cattivo ma Buonom (of particular note) Lasagne All of which we can thoroughly recommend. Profiteroles: stunning.

My friend recommended me to this place and we went together. It was our first time and we didn't realise how busy lunch hour was so we needed to reserve a table and come back in about an hour. When we came back and tried the seafood platter, my god was it good. The king prawns was so juicy and... More

Fabulous food in a lovely restaurant. Would recommend booking as was very busy the evening we went. Good choice of food, lovely friendly service from the waitress and a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

Decided to eat here after reading positive reviews on tripadvisor. The restaurant is small and simply furnished and very very bright seeing as they have both ceiling lights and wall lights full on. So not exactly romantic and I was initially bit disappointed. However service was friendly and my seafood pasta wad excellent and my boyfriend said his pasta and... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor, on a visit to Southsea we had checked out Restaurants, and read about Sopranos, and the need to reserve. We did, and we had a really good meal, the surroundings are simple, the staff so friendly, and each dish is freshly prepared. The place was full, and people were turned away.

Definitely one of the best little restaurants in Southsea with an informal relaxed atmosphere. The menu is great and there is something for everyone. The mixed platter to share for starters is fantastic and delicious. Then you can go pizza, grilled etc. The staff are always friendly and the owner always says hello! You won't be disappointed with this quaint... More

We showed at the restaurant without a booking and they accepted us just by telling us that there was booking for our table at 20:30, it gave us two hours to eat. The restaurant look like it family operated and well maintained. Our meal was very good and the staff was accommodating to us.

Was recommended by friends and family and Sopranos lived up to the expectations. Friendly and professional staff, meals were excellent, well presented with superb flavourings and spices. I can not see how anyone could be disappointed with a dining experience here.

We went on a Tuesday evening and although the meals were very nice and the prices beyond reasonable we did seem to be waiting a while for the waitress- the restaurant is booked up most evenings, and I'm led to believe if you want a Friday/Saturday night you need to book up a good month or so beforehand. I feel... More
