We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the past three years. The most recent being last weekend. The food and service is very good. Faultless. Would be nice if drinks were more reasonably priced though.

Won't be returning, small portions, take it or leave it service. Bread basket was 2 part-bake petit pains. Desserts mostly bought in. Needs to move out of the 80's

I came here with a hen party, we were a party of 22, with ages ranging from 20-60. We were seated at two separate tables, which was a shame as it meant it was difficult to be social with the whole group, but we understood that it can be difficult with big groups so we were fine. The waiters were... More

We were a group of ladies eating out on a Friday night. Two of our party were delayed to such an extent by train cancellations that they did not make it. The restaurant clearly did not like this although they had been ignoring us even before we told them that the last two of our party would not be making... More

My wife and i visited this restaurant, was very impressed by the very friendly welcome by Gianni the owner who seemed very interested in us. The food was delicious and Tiramisu was to die for. Would absolutely recommend a visit.

Located in the artificial world of Port Solent . It is an independent Italian surrounded by chain restaurants. Really busy on a saturday night and they turned lots of groups away. The decor is tired and in need of a spruce up. Service was detached and indifferent and whilst the food came pretty promptly we waited ages and ages for... More

This restaurant is situated in Port Solent which offers a very good range of eating establishments. Tex-Mex, American Diner, Chinese, Indian..and Italian. But Sole Mio is the real Italian deal. Not one of the multi outlet operations. This is owned by an Italian and staffed by Italians. And the food shows it. A great range of dishes from a simple... More
