    Amazing Camembert starter! The food was nice, my risotto was good but wasn’t amazed by it but my partners carbonara was amazing and the waitress was friendly. Would recommend.

    We visited this restaurant for a pre-theatre lunch and it was outstanding. It's cosy with warm and friendly staff, and excellent service. The food was really delicious, and very well presented. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely return.

    We visited this restaurant on a weekday lunchtime and were surprised to find that it was almost full. I believe this is partly because of its location next to the Mayflower Theatre and also because it is an excellent restaurant. It has a charming interior and very pleasant friendly staff. We both ordered a salmon dish which came with a mix of vegetables and a good sauce. We had a very pleasant lunchtime.

    We managed to book here for 5pm before the theatre. The ambience when we got there was lovely. We had even been able to choose our table when we saw people in the restaurant earlier in the day. Food was amazing. Scallops to start with and then I had the fillet steak done blue just as it should be. My partner had the rib eye steak and asked if the chef would cook it as he deemed was appropriate. Service was very courteous and prompt. We then had desserts with dessert wine. The meal was worth every penny. The chef even came round and spoke to the guests. My partner and I have eaten at some great places over the past 5 years and this was probably the best food we have had. Would definitely recommend, just give yourselves plenty of time to enjoy the experience. Jane and Richard

    I'm an absolute scallop lover. The scallops we had here were amazing, together with the risotto. It was amazing. Only good "high-end" place in Southampton.

    Went on a cold November night before a show at the Mayflower. The friendly atmosphere, great food and wine soon warmed us. We do not live in Southampton but visit the Mayflower occasionally - just about to book our next theatre trip and Soleto is a must. I wish we had discovered this little gem years ago.

    A group of 8 visited Saturday night, Pre-Mayflower. The service was fantastic, all staff very friendly. The service was excellent and the food was amazing, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience, would highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

    Went for lunch - tasty food - relaxing atmosphere and excellent - as expected as the owner is Greek!

    Not knowing Southampton I found this place online for a pre-show meal. So glad we went here. Best meal I’ve had for ages. The food was amazing. I had the sea bass and my granddaughter had the fillet steak. Both were cooked to perfection and do tasty. We both chose the chocolate and salted caramel tart for dessert. Again, faultless. The staff were very friendly and attentive without going over the top. It’s a shame we don’t go to Southampton more. I’d definitely be back.

    Fantastic food & great menu with a 'specials' board that proved this was far greater than another Bella Italia chain restaurant. Really amazing service - the 3rd best waitress was secretly my favourite! Could not have been better in any way. A real find so close to the theatre.

    Great food, wine and fantastic service in a wonderfully cosy restaurant. Perfect venue for before or after a visit to the theatre.

    Had a lovely meal here before seeing a show at The Mayflower. Perfect location, literally opposite the theatre. It is quite small but we loved the style of the restaurant, felt more intimate. Staff were really nice and friendly. Can’t wait to come here again and a great addition to Southampton.

    Right across the road from the Mayflower, it’s convenient, convivial, atmospheric and very personality led. We’ve enjoyed a number of pre theatre dinners there and loved the personality of Nina and George. Good menu and a lot of daily specials means great variety. The food is delicious and we def recommend the mussels if they are on Thoroughly recommend

    We enjoyed our meal here for my partners birthday. We shared the calamari to start which was ok but not the best we’ve eaten so I would try a different starter if we returned. We both chose seafood pasta dishes for the main course and they were both excellent. The wine and service were also great.

    We eat here whenever we go to the Mayflower to see a show. It is my favourite place to eat, the calves liver is the best I have tasted but I don't think we have ever had a dish that was less than delicious. The service is also excellent and it has a very small personal feel. My only criticism is that it is 30+ miles away from our home.

    We came here for lunch before going to the Mayfower theatre. It was a great decision. We decided not to have a starter as I ordered Calves liver with sauce and veg and my husband wanted veal and they happened to have a veal chop. Both were cooked to perfection. We came here a year ago with friends and it was great then, so we were delighted to get in as it was full. Definitely recommend this friendly Italian restaurant With reasonable prices. We did not have wine this time.

    We booked this restaurant as a pre pantomime lunch. We loved everything about it, the service, the food, the decor, the menu. We could not fault it. Best food I have had in a while. The people were so friendly with the right amount of attention, we enjoyed the moules, pizza, steak, pasta, baked camembert (with a decent amount of bread, which makes a change) and the ice cream. Would def recommend and of course we will be back in a heartbeat. We were a table of 7 and nobody could pick a fault. I also love the owners taste in decor, she can come round and do my house anytime.

    Having heard good recommendations about Soleto especially regarding their fish dishes, my friends and I visited this week. We were seated at a table with no lighting apart from a candle. We were unable to read the menu, fortunately the torch on smart phones came to the rescue! The waitress was not bothered. However the food was excellent, though portion size of the dessert was so small which was very disappointing as it was superb. Wine expensive. Would I return? Probably but with a Dave lamp at the ready!

    Had a fabulous meal with great service. We were a fairly large group which didn't faze the restaurant at all. Highly recommend and will be going back.
