An independent, family-owned restaurant, Sopranos has great Italian food that is freshly prepared in their fairly small kitchen. It's very popular here especially at lunch times (probably due to the deals they offer). But the best bit for my dairy-intolerant, vegan daughter is that they will adjust the meals if they can to suit - even down to putting cheese... More

Best Italian food we have eaten .Thoroughly recommend.It was fully booked so popular with locals which is always a good sign. We had goats chees bruscetta followed by risotto and then tiramisu and coffee. We will return when we are in the area again.

Food was great; reasonably priced; chianti was very smooth and was worth a second bottle if I wasn't driving home! Complemented mains perfectly!

Well run restaurant with tasty food and well sized portions. Good value for your money. We went on a Tuesday and on a Wednesday and it had the ambiance of a Friday, Saturday night.

I have been here now on two occasions and both times felt disappointed with my dinner. On both visits the staff haven't been overly friendly or helpful and service is pretty slow. Reading the reviews I'm astonished that it didn't live up to expectations. The pasta was tasteless and the pasta was definitely not authentic Italian fresh pasta. I'd make... More

This is a great restaurant (or, more accurately, bistro/cafe) as evidenced by the packed tables. Circa 40 covers are crammed into a small space but this makes for a warm, cosy and convivial atmosphere. Food is well cooked and presented.
