Loved it!

We were struggling to find somewhere to eat on a rainy Sunday evening when we're happened upon Pavarotti's. The first thing that stuck us was how lovely the waitress was - welcoming us etc. She and the other waitress (who had just started) could not have done more for us and it really made a... read more

We have visited Paverotti's many times while on holiday on the island. This meal was, as always, absolutely delicious and served by charming staff. We are a family of 5 and our plates were empty. If you want delicious home cooked Italian food do not hesitate to visit Paverotti's - highly recommended.

I feel bad giving a bad review as the staff was so kind and lovely. The restaurant is very well decorated and feels like a proper Italian place. The food however was a bit disappointing, maybe we didn't pick the right food but my pasta was a little bland... Sorry..

We went to Isle of Wight on holiday & decided to stop for tea after a day out at Shanklin. Went into the restaurant without booking & there was only one table available as the rest were booked, so would suggest to anyone else that they book ahead. Great food, really homely atmosphere & staff really took care of our... More

Lovely location in the old village of Shanklin. Clean, tidy, pleasant surroundings. Ate as part of a large group and had upstairs all to ourselves. I felt they could have done with an extra pair of hands...unless we just got forgotten up there! Took 45 mins for everyone to get an initial drink with quite a bit of confusion and... More

We were lucky enough to get a table here, whilst on holiday last week, without booking. Two of us had pizza, one had steak and chips and the staff provided a simple pasta and sauce dish for a five year old child. The food was delicious and the staff were helpful and attentive.

Very poor service, the staff didn't seem to know what was happening, announcing the wrong dishes, getting dishes mixed up and the rocket pizza was missing rocket. I order steak with a cheese sauce, and chips. The chips where actually French fries these turned up first, the steak was one of the first meals, I had no steak knife given... More
