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!!!

Dear Valley1955 Delighted to read that your food was tasty and it arrived promptly. The wines we offer are of a very good quality and therefore we feel we offer value for money and indeed we sell by the glass for customers that do not wish to purchase a whole bottle Kind Regards Karen More

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!

Terrible service, food was not worth the price, went for a simple dish only to be given half a breast of chicken and the other half bone. To top off the visit, the restaurant was smoky due to a malfunction in the kitchen so they opened the front door, letting in cold air whilst we waited 45 minutes for food.... More

My husband and I were treated to a meal here by my mum. All three of us thoroughly enjoyed our food. With two of us being vegetarian it is often tricky finding something nice but the dishes we chose were amazing. I had a vegetarian tagliatelle dish, my husband a vegetarian risotto. Delicious. The staff were so helpful and friendly.... More

Visited Saturday 8th October Food was delicious, although a little pricey. Service when we could grab a waiter or waitress was good....maybe an extra runner on a weekend evening just to pick up the slack a little (not a criticism at all as the guys were running around and still smiling) My daughter loved her colouring pencils and the lady...

We dined at 7pm on a Friday evening. The food was very tasty, & the service was very good. Two starters, three mains, & three drinks came to £65, which we thought was reasonable.

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.
