Even without reservation they accommodated us straight away. Great menu with a good wine list and friendly staff. The food was lovely and we did not have to wait long at all.

I specifically downloaded the TripAdvisor app (something I've never done before) just so I could express how delicious this food is - That's how good it was. But seriously, the whole family were so impressed with the food at Soprano. Definitely on par with some of the better restaurants we've been to in places like London before. Definitely recommend!

An Italian restaurant but no pizza. Thats ok as i didnt want pizza anyway. Was quite busy for a Monday night. Meal was outstanding. Loads of flavor and textures. The Teramasu was beautiful. I rate it as the 2nd best equal in Italian food. Tuttu Bene in Christchurch will take some beating.

This is a popular place and we have waited to get a reservation. After going here i cant see what the fuss is about. It is very small and the tables are so close together. Uncomfortable chairs. The wait staff were inexperienced and offhand. It took 2.5 hours to have 2 courses. By the time my lamb came I was... More

Arrived on time, order was taken and starter arrived fairly quickly, but then waited over 1.5hrs for the main to arrived by which was far too long.The restaurant was cold, with hard plastic seats which were very uncomfortable after the long wait for the main. The mains orders were not what was ordered resulting in people eating while others at... More

This is the second time we have been to this restaurant and again the service and food are wonderful. Next time we stay in Paparaumu we will definitely go again. One word of advice - if you don't want to miss out make a reservation.

The atmosphere was both intimate and lively at the same time. The service was friendly and efficient. I had heard that it was 'expensive' but I found the prices fairly comparable to what would be charged in a restaurant with a good reputation [which it has] e.g. mains cost average in the low $30's. Total cost for 5 people -... More

We could only get an early booking so when we arrived we were the first customers for the evening ( i.e. they were not busy at this point). We were pointed to our table at the end of the restaurant which we found unusual - we expected to be accompanied to the table. Our coats had to hang over the... More
