“Big yummy portions ”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, the menu could be more adjusted to the time of day. We attended during lunchtime and even though I could not fault anything about the meals, a lighter menu option would benefit the restaurant. Having said that, my Calzone oozed cheese and was deliciously fulfilling with every mouthful. Gnocchi swimming in the rich Bolognese sauce smelt as good as it tasted. The portion sizes are massive (for the price, you would hope so), so would suggest a small/large portion option for certain meals. Would recommend going here as it has so far been the best food I have tasted in Port Solent.

“Lovely Meal by the waterside”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Nice sunny lunchtime, we sat outside in the extensive outside seating area and opted for the shade. Just as well as others moved out of the sun too. Service was polite and prompt. Stated that we had to wait perhaps a little longer as the food is fresh cooked. However, our delicious pasta plates arrived within 20 minutes ( as expected ). The food was delicious and hot with lashings of Parmesan and pepper (yes, one of those giant mills). The portion size was so large, I couldn't eat it all. Fairly prompt service when required but otherwise a lovely quiet location on the side of the Marina with a gentle buzz of conversation. Will go again.

“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Arranged a surprise anniversary meal for my wife..... the staff were very helpful, and I dropped some flowers at the restaurant during the day which they stored in the cooled room. upon arrival (we were 20 min early) our table was ready with the flowers placed as arranged.

Service wasn't instant but then we were in no rush. We ordered drinks and a starter, which arrived in good time. The main course was fantastic (Carbornara and Calzone), and the Rum BaBa desert was even better.

The quality of the food vs price is second to none. We were more than happy to pay the bill for the quailty of our meal and the excellent service the O Sol Mio staff provided.

Will be visiting again for sure!

“Not outstanding!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I visit the restaurant every four months or so with a group of friends. Sadly our last visit did not come up to our expectations. The breads were good and the main meals were ok, but the staff were not particularly attentive or friendly, even when we wanted to pay! We were also charged for teas and coffees we hadn't had. It wasn't a particularly busy lunch time so no excuse for what was disinterested service. Think we will find somewhere else in Port Solent next time.
