The food was lovely; I personally could have done with a slightly larger portion of the pasta dish I ordered, it was very nice but not large; my husband's spaghetti Bolognese was massive ! The service felt rather hurried though; we had eaten three courses and were out of there within an hour; it might sound strange but it was... More

Dear CrawleyLynn Delighted that you had a lovely meal . With regard to timings its a hard one to please everyone i'd say the best thing to do would be to ask the waiter to delay the next course until you were ready Regards Karen More

Popped into Azzurros at Gunwharf, Portsmouth for an early evening meal. Went for £10.99 meal deal ( pizza or pasta plus drink). Delicious meal with small house wine, big dish of pasta, very tasty and filling! Definitely have again :)

This was our first visit to this restaurant chain and visited early evening. We ordered a starter of prawn cocktail and bruschetta with peppers.No peppers were available so I opted for the mushroom bruschetta.This was tasty but unfortunately the prawn cocktail contained tough tasteless prawns and not many of them. Main course we opted for steak and seafood risotto with... More

This was the second time we have visited Azzuro Gunwharf, previous time being in May. Both times we hadn't booked & they were able to accommodate us. There is a relaxed feel about the place. On our first visit we were given some 241 vouchers to use mon-thurs so as last week we were there on Thursday that swung us... More

My wife and I had a lovely meal after an afternoon of shopping. Good value for money and very good service. My wife had the seafood risotto and I had a pizza. Both were delicious. Nice way to unwind, rest our legs and fill our stomachs before heading home.

I also asked for some salt and pepper and this was never delivered to me. I was surprised as it was not busy. The food was ok but nothing to... More

Another very enjoyable meal at this Restaurant which my wife and I have visited many times in the past and never been disappointed with. We booked in advance as knew it would be very busy, what with the Christmas Festival nearby at the Dockyard and the Xmas Shoppers. Nice table, not too close to other guests, attentive and friendly staff,... More

Description
Azzurro is a popular chain of Italian restaurants across the UK serving a mixture of pasta and pizza staples together with a selection of more sophisticated dishes. This Portsmouth branch is set next to the Spinnaker Tower in the revitalised area of Gunwharf Quays, and has a relaxed, family-friendly vibe, with colouring sheets and children's menus to keep the kids entertained. It is also a splendid choice for summer functions, with the outdoor terrace offering a spectacular view overlooking the Solent. Inspired by the finest Italian recipes, Azzurro uses the freshest ingredients to create a great selection of classic Italian dishes and frequently changing specials to ensure that you can enjoy a new culinary experience with each visit. Each meal is freshly prepared on-site, meaning that you will be served good food fast, rather than just fast food. As well as stocking some truly exceptional wines from both traditional and New World regions, the bars at Azzurro also offer some of Europe's most loved beers on draught and bottled.
