Great atmosphere. The owner very attentive. Great menu with lots of choice. BYO. Food was superb but too much for me. Excellent value for money. Desserts to die for - yummy.

Anne-Marie and her crew do a job that is nothing short of outstanding. Went for our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so we went back for our anniversary the next year. Only downsides are chairs could be more comfortable and dining room reverberates so much noise. But the food is heavenly. Love, love, love it.

The food that we had was top quality, well presented, and just damned good to eat. Service was quiet and efficient. Just great - we'll be back.

The food, oh, the food. Mine was the special - a salad with terakihi. But, oh my, the tiny potatoes were perfect, mandarin sections, just the right amount of aioli, little bits of young lettuce, just perfect. And the service and prices were just fine. But book ahead!

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
