I have been eating here since it opened as O Sole Mio Two, the food is fabulous, the staff are very good, helpful and friendly, you are always made to feel welcome and the prices are very reasonable too.

Retains the charm of the Italian bistro of old, so a nice contrast to the familiar chain restaurants nearby, though the menu is a little more pricey. Be sure to go when Torta della Nonna (a tart made from almonds and oranges) is on the dessert menu.

It's hard to understand where some people get off on complaining about such a fabulous restaurant...

The proprietor is very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The staff are attentive, friendly and charming...giving an excellent service. We are regular visitors to this restaurant and apart from one visit which was slightly less than the five star rating we have given, we have otherwise always had five star service and food. The food is exceptional, and you certainly get what you pay for....slightly more expensive than other Italian restaurants, but worth every penny.

We have visited as a couple and as a group of friends on many occasions, including for a last minute night out and for special occasions (birthdays and Valentine's Day)....we have never been displeased with this restaurant. The atmosphere is just lovely, (Valentine's Day was exceptionally divine with romantic music and a red rose for the ladies)...We would recommend O Sole Mio to everyone we know and more......

Try it for yourselves....you won't be disappointed!

A random decision to have lunch here overlooking the marina. Not disappointed at all. Visited Port Solent for the first time to view a motor boat. It was a cold and overcast Wednesday in January 2013. The were a dozen other patrons so there was no pressure on the kitchen. Staff were attentive and following a reasonable glass of house wine albeit pricey at £4 for 125ml, we ate cannelloni (£6.50/head)from the "today's special". Although it was slow in coming (the young waitress was not sympathetic), the look and taste was everything you could expect from an "artisan" kitchen. Nothing about "here is one I produced from the freezer"! One small criticism would be the "over-loud" background Italian opera music.We would certainly go again if visiting Port Solent.

Welcoming staff and an excellent wine list and that is where the praise ends. Service too fast, rubbery Swordfish for main. No warning a member of staff would get up with a microphone and sing off key at high volume making conversation difficult. Ruined the Christmas girls night out which was cut short as we couldn't wait to get away.
