This was our first visit to this restaurant chain and visited early evening. We ordered a starter of prawn cocktail and bruschetta with peppers.No peppers were available so I opted for the mushroom bruschetta.This was tasty but unfortunately the prawn cocktail contained tough tasteless prawns and not many of them. Main course we opted for steak and seafood risotto with... More

This was the second time we have visited Azzuro Gunwharf, previous time being in May. Both times we hadn't booked & they were able to accommodate us. There is a relaxed feel about the place. On our first visit we were given some 241 vouchers to use mon-thurs so as last week we were there on Thursday that swung us... More

My wife and I had a lovely meal after an afternoon of shopping. Good value for money and very good service. My wife had the seafood risotto and I had a pizza. Both were delicious. Nice way to unwind, rest our legs and fill our stomachs before heading home.

Had the lunchtime menu option on a Saturday. There were lots of table available. The staff were friendly enough but never asked how out meals were when they were delivered. I also asked for some salt and pepper and this was never delivered to me. I was surprised as it was not busy. The food was ok but nothing to... More

Another very enjoyable meal at this Restaurant which my wife and I have visited many times in the past and never been disappointed with. We booked in advance as knew it would be very busy, what with the Christmas Festival nearby at the Dockyard and the Xmas Shoppers. Nice table, not too close to other guests, attentive and friendly staff,... More

On Saturday 28th November I sat down for a meal with 3 of my friends. Initially the service was okay, our order was taken and our drinks were delivered. However, when we received our starter, not only did it take a long time to come, but the salad in which me and my partner shared had a live snail on... More

We booked a table for 6.45 on a Friday night and was seated straight away... The staff were very friendly and attentive.. Food arrived promptly and was very tasty. HOWEVER....the days of being ripped off on the price of wine I thought was long gone...i was wrong... £7.45 for a very small glass of proseco is outrageous!!!

We ate here on a Friday night. We had a lovely view across the harbour and were served by attentive and friendly staff. We both had different pasta dishes and they were hot, flavoursome and were good portion sizes. To be honest I found mine to be a bit big so had to get hubby to help me finish it!

Description
Azzurro is a popular chain of Italian restaurants across the UK serving a mixture of pasta and pizza staples together with a selection of more sophisticated dishes. This Portsmouth branch is set next to the Spinnaker Tower in the revitalised area of Gunwharf Quays, and has a relaxed, family-friendly vibe, with colouring sheets and children's menus to keep the kids entertained. It is also a splendid choice for summer functions, with the outdoor terrace offering a spectacular view overlooking the Solent. Inspired by the finest Italian recipes, Azzurro uses the freshest ingredients to create a great selection of classic Italian dishes and frequently changing specials to ensure that you can enjoy a new culinary experience with each visit. Each meal is freshly prepared on-site, meaning that you will be served good food fast, rather than just fast food. As well as stocking some truly exceptional wines from both traditional and New World regions, the bars at Azzurro also offer some of Europe's most loved beers on draught and bottled.
