This ristorante is popular because it is great. If you do get in on the off-chance count yourself lucky. The food choices are excellent, including perfection for pasta lovers, but not restricted to that - full of wonderful flavours that you can smell in advance and presentation so that you want to look at it as well as smell it...

If you want delicious food together with great service then this is the place. Plenty to choice from on the menu, and always nice to have BYO wine as an option

Monday evening and the place was full. Menu was different and interesting. Meals were well presented and equally well cooked. Service was close to perfect. Friendly unpretentious, attentive.

Monday night and wanting to eat out. Not much to choose from but there was Sopranos. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The wait staff were very good. I had the lamb ribs on a rice risotto and finished off with the profiteroles. Outstanding, all of it. And the wine is reasonably priced too. We shared a bottle of... More

We were supposed to be flying out this arvo but due to earthquake and weather we couldn't get to the airport so went to Saprano's for dinner. We always go when we visit here. This trip we didn't think we had time so our delay was a bonus in this respect. I had risotto with peas beans my husband had... More

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.
