Description: Located in the heart of the city’s new Cultural Quarter (10 minutes from Central station, 5 minutes from Mayflower theatre and West Quay & Nuffield theatre ) Momento offers a place for you to have a ‘Moment to yourself’. We have an indoor seating area and an outdoor area in Guildhall Square where you can dine with our Italian comfort food and why not treat yourself to a glass of wine making it a perfect marriage on a lovely day. We have a wide variety of food, with the meat and fish being sourced from the best local producers and we have hand picked our wine list from the best vine yards in Italy. Why not come in and have a Moment….

Just had my birthday lunch here. Often walked past it and wondered what itd be like. So wish I'd gone in earlier.
Fresh local produce, prepared with love and passion. The people are really friendly and proudly produce quality food at reasonable prices.
We ordered the fresh foccacia sanwiches and the sea bass and watercress pesto blew me away. Freshly squeezed orange was refreshing and top notch coffee.
Planning our next trip already.
Well done Momento and thanks for my birthday lemon and coconut canoli!

So delighted to have found a REAL Italian restaurant in Southampton- REAL PASTA, care taken with each dish and a Sicilian host who takes pride in each dish. I travel often for work and will definitely return here. One quality to the experience is that this restaurateur doesn't shy away from having an opinion on which wine complements which dish and which starter will complement the main. I had a wonderful dining experience here.

We were looking for somewhere to eat at around 8pm on a Saturday evening having attended the comedy festival in Southampton but most of the restaurants were chains and clearly aimed at students. We then discovered Momento and so pleased we did.
As soon as we opened the door we were greated by the Sicilian host who was just so friendly and welcoming. He was passionate about the food they serve and knowledgeable about the wines they offer. We had an lovely time.
The food is simple but beautifully cooked, really authentic Italian cuisine. We will be returning.

My favourite spot for a lunchtime coffee, best espresso in town. Food is good with friendly staff. My occasional treat is the chocolate "boat" pastries!
