Still looking for great Italian in Aruba

- I’d say good not great, honestly I didn’t think the food was any better than Casa Tua which is more casual and 1/3 of the price. My wife and I have tried a number of Italian restaurants on Aruba and yet to find one that I’d say was great. Once again I think Casa Tua is one I’d send... read more

Just had dinner here tonight. Used to be our favorite restaurant in Aruba. Sold to new owners 5 to 6 years ago -- has gone down the drain ever since. Had the absolute worst service I have had in a restaurant in 30 years. Staff totally dazed and confused. No one knew what to do or how to do it.... More

This was my second time to Sole Mare. The first time I went, I was blown away by the food and the service. This time, the service was still great, but the food was mediocre. We went for dinner, and it was pricey. I thought the quality and portions were really not great at all. We left disappointed. I would... More

The staff are attentive, friendly and helpful. We had chicken parmagiana and seafood pasta .Large portions, great food.We took back to our condo for lunch the next day. We went before 7pm and had the $25 early bird specials. Wonderful for the price. We were told by friends about the specials but we did have to ask for them. Regular... More

My husband and I have eaten at Sole Mare at least 3 times in past visits to Aruba. Last week we made our yearly visit. The restaurant was half empty versus previous visits when you were lucky to be seated without a reservation. Although the food was tasty, we were seriously disappointed in the quantity for the price. Learned the... More

Sole Mare is one of the better more traditional Italian restaurants on the island and we've dinned there for the past 8 years. It's difficult to duplicate authentic fresh Italian cuisine as everything needs to be imported, but they do a very good job with what they have to work with. Their signature dish is the Spaghetti Parmigiano (pasta is... More

We had escargot and Minestrone as appetizers, we loved them, and them we both had Chicken Parmagiana, awesomely done, generous portion and very tasty. The best parmagiana I ever had... I even had gnocchi as my side dish!!!! It can't get any better... Loved it... Definitively coming back, Thanks Michelle, Fanny and Valentina

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 order from the children's menu... 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
