The food was good, service was lacking. Our family of four really liked our food, and our waiter was open to creating a dish not actually listed on the menu. The specials were delicious. We had intended to get dessert and more wine but ended up with neither. We understand that because it was Christmas, it was busy. However, just... More

Have eaten here several times over the last few years and think it's not worth the price. Food is average Italian but priced like gourmet. Look for other placed if you like Italian.

A nice place for dinner but way over priced . $210 for dinner and drinks for family of four was a little out there. If the food was amazing I don't mind spending that kind of money. Plus, I expect to go to a restaurant where the server understands fluent English. I'd probably skip this place!

Food is very salty. Drinks are expensive. Service is Good. Overall it is an over priced and a little tired. There are better choices for Italian.

Sole Mare is a very nice restaurant with exceptional service. I had the spaghetti and I didn't realize that the presentation would be better than the food. They brought out a wheel of parmesean that had an unknown liquor on it that was lit to melt the cheese. Then they added the pasta and mixed it in with the cheese.... More

My wife had Spaghetti ai Frutti di Mare ($35.00) without spaghetti, they replaced spaghetti at our request with a variety of vegetables. I had Rigatoni ai Quattro Formaggi ($22), ( the website's prices are not up-to-date. ) Both dishes were ample (maybe too much) and good. For desert we sampled tiramisu (perhaps more alcohol would have been great) and I... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant during our Thanksgiving trip. We were very disappointed in the food. My eggplant parmagiano was a mush blend of ingredients .I ordered the grouper special; it was terrible and tasted like dried cod fish. We visit Aruba four times a year and found much better restaurants. We won't be going back to Sole... More

When you travel to other countries you're never sure how certain types of food that you are used to will be like. At Sole Mare I felt like I was back in New Jersey, the Italian food was very good, it wouldn't have been out of place in NY/NJ. We ended up coming here twice during our trip, on what... More

We have travelled to Aruba for many, many years. Every year, we go to Sole Mare with a group of us. They do a good job with groups, unlike other places on the island. You will need to make reservations regardless of how many are in your party. This year I was a little disappointed. I had been dieting, and... More
