First visit was lovely, food (sea bass) was excellent, service very good, wine reasonably priced, staff were really nice and friendly - we went back two nights later, just the same, recommended.

Good service and very tasty food and a lovely atmosphere. Child friendly and we were able to take home out left over pizza to eat later so no waste!

I went in on Saturday night and they took our booking and said return in one hour. So we went for a drink, hung around and came back an hour later. Stood at front desk and staff ignored us right down to not making eye contact.....looking away. Eventually spoke to an old lady manager with poor command of English, and... More

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...
