It’s hard not to appreciate al fresco dining on a terrace overlooking the ocean, with the waves crashing in the background and the smell of salt in the air, especially on Cape Cod. At Soprano’s Casino by the Sea in Falmouth, not only can you enjoy this type of scenery, but the food is spectacular too.

Family owned and operated, Soprano’s is a newly opened sister restaurant to Soprano’s Ristorante in Mashpee. “When the opportunity arose  for a historical location such as this, we decided to jump on it, combining our authentic Italian cuisine with a well-known Cape Cod beach location,” says Director of Operations Barbara Komenda.

“Our spectacular Vineyard room is highly sought after as Cape Cod’s premier oceanfront location for your special event or function. The building has stood on the shores of Falmouth Heights beach for over a century,” says Komenda. “The first level seating, the second story room and sensational decks overlook picturesque views of Martha’s Vineyard and miles of beach.” Visitors may even recognize Soprano’s as the finish line location for the yearly Falmouth Road Race.

Local ingredients, detailed recipes by Chef George Brown and attentive service have ensured that this new spot has hit the ground running. “My team deserves all the credit,” says Komenda. “If I didn’t have them, I would not be where I am today. I’m only as good as the people I work with.”

Waves crashing in the background, the smell of salt in the air—it’s a simple enough situation to come by on the Cape, but why not enjoy it along with a delicious meal at Soprano’s Casino by the Sea?
