The starters were fine but then we had a long wait for our pizzas. Sadly none of the staff noticed that we had no food and it wasn't until I got someone's attention that it was noticed. Our food had been forgotten about. When it...did arrive it wasn't worth the wait. The pizza bases looked like they had come out of a packet, all the same size, perfectly round and very doughy. Then a portion of chips appeared by way of an apology but who wants chips after a pizza? They did deduct the cost of our non-alcoholic drinks which the minimum they could do. I won't be back.More

Three of us ate here on the evening before the Great South Run, it was very busy, but the service and ambiance was great. We all had different mains, which we all enjoyed, and then all had the creme brulee which was just fab. Communication...regarding booking was great, we'll definitely return.More

We had a day trip over from the Isle of Wight via the hovercraft and visited here for lunch. Wow, what amazing food! Couldn’t fault anything. We both had spaghetti puttanesca with tuna. Best pasta meal I’ve had in ages. Hubby had the apple and...cinnamon crème brûlée which was also lush! I just had a coffee - excellent. Service was great and all for a reasonable place. Definitely recommended!More

This was our 2nd visit and just like the first it was a fabulous meal, we had the garlic mushrooms for starter and I had lasagne which was tasty and well cooked. It is a family run restaurant which is nice and the service was...excellent.More

Staff absolutely lovely, my husband really enjoyed his chorizo and potato salad, (more fancy but can’t remember exact name of dish ) I had the seafood risotto which wasn’t good, to be honest it was more like a mushroom and broccoli risotto rather than seafood,...there was salmon and newly defrosted prawns ( because they were cold) but it wasn’t a seafood risotto. The toilets were in a very bad state, no toilet roll and rubbish bins over flowing , would think twice about a re visit, but the waitress who served us was greatMore

Very enjoyable dinner tonight Service was excellent with the staff and management going that extra mile. This level of customer interaction is so lacking these days but Soprano’s has it on tap. Worth a visit just for the latte art !

Great choice of menu for a medium sized restaurant. Indoor and outdoor seating. REALLY helpful waiter…..”do you want to taste the wine before you order?”. Strongly recommend the bruschetta with goats cheese! Well done and many thanks!!! Oh! Loved the sounds too!

Great location, nice atmosphere and bright and cool dexor. The food here is amazing, great menu choices and a couple of specials two. All the pasta dishes can be done gluten free as well (no gluten free pizza sadly but lots of other options for...my Auntie). I had the risotto but my cousin had a pizza which was also awesome!! There was a mix up with our booking but the staff were genuinely apologetic and did everything to seat us anyway. Thank you very much, you made our night!! Will certainly be back if possible.More

I’ve been here several times for lunch with friends and the food is always amazing: great flavours, cooked fresh and excellently presented. The staff are friendly and prices are very reasonable. I can’t fault Soprano’s and am happy to support a local business.

I don't think they have a specific gluten free menu but there are items on the main menu that are gluten free. They are so helpful that I am sure your son will be well looked after.
