Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We found the service to be excellent, staff friendly and the food was fantastic. Super tasty and good portion sizes. Happy to cater to the fussy eater in our group with no complaints. Would absolutely eat here again if in the area. Thanks to all...staff for a great evening out.More

Can be to be a real go to restaurant and we have been frequently in the past. Often difficult to get a table. Last meal was a really strange mismatch of taste extremes. Really nice croquettes as a starter. Then had a fish risotto main,...with what was really a poor choice of fish for an Italian risotto, and too large a portion, left wing lemon sauce which overpowered everything. Lack lustre sweet. Friendly staff and a nice ambience. So a little neutral in this response and the Chef is the one who can make every difference.More

Went on a Friday evening, waited over an hour and a half for our food, which was below average. Next time I'd like some gnocchi with my bowl full of sauce. The bruschetta was soggy. The seafood marinara was tasteless and the prawns overcooked. The...bolognese was greasy. Staff were unapologetic and rude. No offer of complimentary appetiser while we waited or compensation. However, not all was lost, we did take a free mentos. Will not be going back and would not recommend.More

I'm giving this 3 stars because the mains were OK, but the entrees and desserts were really more deserving of 2 stars. The bruschetta was soggy instead of crisp. The tiramisu was watery. Also, in an Italian restaurant it would be nice if the wait...staff could pronounce the names of the dishes correctly, but maybe I'm being pickyMore

Just enjoyed a fabulous meal at Sopranos- Paraparaumu Beach. We (3) shared the antipasto platter for two and it was heaps. Great variety and quality. For mains we each chose something different and none was a letdown. Food was great and service excellent too. Can’t...recommend highly enough. We’ll be back for sure!!More

All diners made to feel welcome, by the wait staff who where all wearing masks , as were arriving diners, probably because it was a fullhouse of mainly older folk. Menu remains similiar to previous vists. Tasty garic bread and olives to start. Good range...of pasta and mains. Duck is devine.More

Another lòvely meal on a busy night. We had calimari as a starter, gnocchi and chicken followed by tiramisu and the ice cream choice. Our waiter "Josh" was entertaining, knowledgeable and efficient. Thanks everyone we will be back.

We have dined at this restaurant many many times over the past 10 years and always found the food and service fantastic with Anne Marie at the helm it was a well run machine with the personal touch. With the change in ownership we have...dined there again half a dozen times and unfortunately the experience is no where near as good. The food is ok but not exceptional and the service is average and with the new owners having their young daughter about 11 or 12 serving the food and taking the orders makes us feel very uncomfortable and not our idea of fine dining any more. What a shame as it was once one of the finer restaurants on the Coast.More
