      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      The Pizza House This restaurant might sound like it is part of a chain, but I can assure you it is quite unique, if only because of it's crazy owner, who yelps, howls, throws empty bottles into the glass bin and has been known to throw kitchen knives at the door to the toilets, but he does make sure no-one is in there. True to its name, pizza features large on the menu, but nothing like the bland imitation found in supermarkets. All the real Italian combinations are there, no oddities like bacon and egg or chicken tikka. I like to start with a cool slice of melon, topped with the best of Parma ham, followed by either a generous plate of pasta or a selection from classic dishes such as veal milanaise and chicken cacciatore. The wine list is not excessively priced and has a good selection of regional wines. I normally prefer white, but a delicate Frascati or Soave can be overwhelmed by a strongly flavoured pasta sauce, so go for the reds. Service can sometimes be slow if the restaurant is busy, but you can order a beer or aperitif and munch on breadsticks or dough balls with garlic butter. Make sure you book if you want a table on a Friday or Saturday, especially if Portsmouth are playing at home. Look around the walls to see photos signed by a host of celebrities including Pompey players. The Pizza House has won numerous restaurant awards and rightly so.
