We recently visited this restaurant for dinner with an autistic child, the waitress made us wait quite some time before she helped us, she wouldn't tell us if she had a table, she then walked off again and told us she was trying to work out if she had a table, in this time our child was getting really distressed...

Unfortunately i cannot comment on the food as we did not get that far. We went in and asked a young, rather timid looking waitress if there were any tables. She said she needed to go and find out. She came back and spoke to us but an older waitress swept past us and said in a very rude and... More

A small Italian/pizzeria in Shanklin Old Village near the top of the Chine. In the last 20 years, have holidayed on the Isle of Wight 5 times and always visit Pavorotti's. Think it has changed hands several times, the original people used to have a waiter who sang! Believe it has changed hands again since our last visit 5 years... More

Second time we have visited her when we come to Isle of Wight on holiday. Our kids love it and the staff are always very accommodating in fitting us in. Always a good idea to book. We hadn't booked,but staff were able to fit us in- Brownie points from the kids! Food was excellent and we would recommend to anyone... More

Food was over priced. Staff over worked, rude and stressed. Wouldn't go back, plenty of nicer restaurants with friendlier, happier staff!

Every time I have visited the Isle of Wight I have had a meal at Pavarotti's. The Restaurant is situated in Shanklin village and is easy to find. It is a small cosy resaurant, with a comfortable feel. The prices are good and comparative with the seafront pubs. There is a lot to chose from on the menu, and choices... More

You can't fault the determination of the owners to make this place work but for us it was a very poor experience. The food was just not up to standard and as the meal progressed things just went downhill. I feel they know what they need to do to make this place work, and clearly it does for some, simplify...

I was recommended this resturant by a friend, and decided to give it a try. However upon arrival we were greeted of sorts, and allocated to a small table for two which clearly there was no room between us and the customera behind us. For what we ordered it was not great value for money, it seemed that the staff... More

Just had a great family meal at Pavarotti's. Lovely restaurant with very helpful staff. Good choice of food. We all enjoyed our meals and would recommend this little Italian.
