Best meat lasagna ever!

We stopped in without reservations and were accommodated. Hubby ordered from the Early Bird Special. 3 courses for $25. Not a large selection but the food was fabulous. He had pan fried grouper. It was excellent! Due to a medical issue I can only eat a small amount at each meal so I asked to... read more

First experience at Sole Mare was outstanding. Seven family members present and everyone ordered different entrees and stated food was excellent and service was superb. We ate at another popular Italian restaurant 2 days ago but service and food quality was fair at best. Convenient to the high rise hotels but not an easy walk from hotels near the Marriott.... More

Looked forward to Spaghetti Formaggio Parmesean Dish and worth the years wait! Reservations are a must!

My son says it's the best Fettacine Alfredo he has ever had in his life. I say don't miss the pasta share for two. Fire up the cheese table side and enjoy the best Italian on the island. Skip one night of dining outdoors for this one!

We wanted some Italian food and this was one of the recommendations. It is somewhat within walking distance from high rise hotels though we took a taxi from the Marriott. Very prompt and friendly service. Food was delicious. We had gnocchi and veal parm. The veal was absolutely tender and fantastic.

We visited Sole Mare in Aruba with another couple on our last visit to Aruba. We were an hour early for their dinner hour opening. We were greeted by the owner who graciously seated us anyway.The staff was also gracious and welcomed us even though they were still setting up for dinner. All the staff were very friendly and did...

This place was recommended by a number of people who live on the island, it was not in the guidebooks yet. Not far from Eagle beach, it has very fresh seafood [lobster tank], pasta and meat dishes prepared with skill and imagination. A little pricey like all the restaurants on the island. We went on a Monday night and the... More

My wife and I, on vacation in Aruba for a week, tried Sole Mare for dinner last night. It's a little off the beaten path, but easy enough to get to by car or taxi, from the main hotel strip in Aruba. As soon as you walk in, you know you are in a traditional, old school italian restaurant -... More

We have been coming to Aruba with our 2 girls for 9 years now and this year our cab driver told us that Sole Mare is hands down the best Italian restaurant on the Island. He was RIGHT! I am Italian myself and therefore very picky about my Italian food. The sauce (especially the marinara and fra diavo) was out... More
