On visiting Portsmouth for the first time we found out from our hotel that Sopranos was supposedly the best Italian in town.. and we were not disappointed. The meal was lovely. As we were hungry we ordered the garlic pizza which was ok then for starters we had seafood.. I had the mussels in chilli and tomato sauce which tasted... More

Used to visit here often and would always have my favourite carbonara , haven't been for few years and went back this week still same excellent fresh food at a reasonable price much better than the bigger chains! Food takes quite a while to come but it's nice and fresh when it does! No complaints

Our first time at this restaurant. Staff pleasant and friendly. Glad that we booked as they were turning people away all evening - obviously very popular. The service was good. I started with the sardines which were very tasty. I followed those with the lasagne which I enjoyed very much. The side salads served with both were very good (I... More

Clean and welcoming - definitely needed to book as all evening people were being turned away. Good service although it is a pity that the server did not draw our attention to the "Specials" of the day. I had antipasto which was excellent especially the olives which were delicious. Second was cannelloni with salad which was ok but nothing special.

Been here a few times and it has been enjoyed, decor and layout is a little lacking but the building is pretty restrictive. Pasta is always pretty good, though I find the pizzas are overpriced. Drinks menu could be a bit better but overall I happily return.

nothing to look at this restaurant is always packed - and rightly so wonderful, fresh pasta dishes - I have been 3 times and have not been disappointed. Its a shame they cannot move to a bigger place as people are often turned away

Soprano's is my favourite restaurant in Southsea, they are constantly perfect! Had the avocado and prawn salad tonight and it was such a lovely combination with the vegetables and the salad! My mum thoroughly enjoyed herself also! Thank you!

Had the lunch time deal. Two courses for £7.95, price was bumped up considerably with bread, a beer and a glass of wine. Food was OK, but for that price you can't really complain. Service was friendly.

Glad we booked. A lovely small eatery with a varied menu and choices for everybody. The Grilled Chicken, Avocado salad was a perfect choice for lunchtime and it was truly delicious. Could have popped in a bit more avocado but hey it was good. Chef how did you do those crispy Noodles they were fab and everybody wanted them!! We... More

A full restaurant service a.little slow. There were four of us three meals excellent, risotto, pasta and tagatelli excellent and good value for money. Disappointed with the calzone very basic and not on a par with the other dishes. Have eaten here several times before atmosphere was very good and staff very pleasant.

Thank Malcolm C
