We took the Wellington on a Plate option and were very pleased. We had arrived quite early for sour reserved time so our table was still busy, but the maître d' found somewhere for us to sit and enjoy an aperitif. The wine list is very italian. The pork belly was tender and the crackling a little chewy. But overall... More

This restaurant deserves its reputation, as one of the best restaurants on the Kapiti coast - the food is very good and the service excellent. We were a little disappointed with the wine list (extremely small) and found the restaurant very noisy. ]

Extremely big meals especially the pasta as many at my table could not finish. My fish with salad was one of the best mains I have had. Very friendly service. Bring your own wine made it value for money.

We booked table for 8pm - ordered antipasto which came in 15 mins then waited 1 hour and no mains. When we asked where the mains were (at 9:45) we were told there coming out now. A check with the chef revealed they were just starting to cook the meals. "We did our best" was the reply from the owner,... More

The place where was highly recommended and initially all looked good. However on ordering a glass of wine the tide was out, way out. Three sips and she was all gone. Come on guys, we're not a bunch of drunks frequenting a bar, but at least pour us a reasonable red to go with what was reasonable meal.

Looking for nutrition after business, midweek in Paraparam, we found the Soprano, along with quite a few locals. There was nothing particularly bad about the meal at the Soprano, but not a lot endearing. The entrées and the whole meal for that matter was quite wholesome. While a few of the entrées looked a little “Italian” along with some pasta... More

A small Italian restaurant in a seaside town. Ample free parking. Owner Annemarie is on hand to explain the menus if your Italian is not good. Her waiting staff are pleasant. Don't plan to eat and run as this restaurant requires you to sit and enjoy.Their meals are generous and it is hard to chose from an extensive menu and... More

The need for a quiet dinner for two couples after a hectic afternoon led us to Soprano, tucked away from the waterfront at Paraparaumu. Arriving on time we were greeted and led to our reserved table at 7.15pm. The three female staff were all attentive to our needs and assisted as necessary with the menu. We ordered our main courses... More

Friendly Soprano is a great place for a special night out. Good value and great flavours. They change the menu seasonally so there is always something new on return visits. We've seldom been disappointed with our choices. The room is cozy and the staff attentive. The owners are always welcoming.
