The need for a quiet dinner for two couples after a hectic afternoon led us to Soprano, tucked away from the waterfront at Paraparaumu. Arriving on time we were greeted and led to our reserved table at 7.15pm. The three female staff were all attentive to our needs and assisted as necessary with the menu.

We ordered our main courses and waited a lengthy time before the food arrived. Was it just slow service, or was everything freshly prepared and not "just heated up"? Clearly the delay in this busy restaurant was from the freshness of the cooking and the wait was well worth it. Our meals included a pasta dish, a fillet steak and two lamb rump meals. They were all to die for. The meat was cooked to perfection and accompanied by a delightful array of roasted vegetables. Both couples followed their mains by sharing a dessert, which was also of the highest quality.

Before the end of our meal, we were visited by the owner of the restaurant who sought feedback about our meal. The costs were very reasonable and the standard of the food more than exceeded our expectations.

Will we go again: most certainly. Soprano now rates as our favourite restaurant in the greater Wellington region.

Friendly Soprano is a great place for a special night out. Good value and great flavours. They change the menu seasonally so there is always something new on return visits. We've seldom been disappointed with our choices. The room is cozy and the staff attentive. The owners are always welcoming.

Never disappointed and guests are always impressed.
This could be the nicest place to eat out in the Kapiti district and is certainly a great place to dine for an occasion. Interesting menu substantial food authentic tastes. The staff are beautifully trained, beautifully attentive and beautiful. Two thumbs up. Check it out.
