Have eaten here often over the years and to my mind is a 'family type' restaurant and would not call it 'romantic' Family owned and has changed locations quite a few times. Their minestrone soup used to be so good, however, the last time I ordered it (quite a while ago) was very disappointed and won't again. (This is not... More

My favorite is Cindy's homemade perogies. I have friend whose favorite is the made to order pizza. Another friend loves the wraps. They also have a great buffet on Sunday evenings. Everything is just like homemade. The pasta is very good. As you can tell they menu is varied. There is something for everyone! Service and premises are great as... More

I won't be eating or ordering out from this place. Nothing romantic [first occasion was a birthday], second was mother-in-law's choice - neither will be repeated as I found the staff slow and forgetful. The food was over-priced and uninspired.

Thought we would try it out for lunch, our server was very nice, ordered 2 coffee with Bailey's Irish cream, received the menus and looked them over, my friend and I both looked up at the same time to say "nothing on the menu was striking us". The menu is dated and average fair, for a diner or greasy spoon..... More

The staff are all so lovely and warm it's a shame that the food is not better. We did love the mushroom soup and the salad bar, but found all of the items offered at the Sunday smorgasbord to be so-so at best. So many of the locals were eating the smorgasbord we followed suit but next time we would... More

Visited here because it seemed like it was well established. While I agree with other reviews that the decor on the inside is mismatched and a little eery, the food and service was great! The potato skins are definitely worth ordering as an appy. Home-style cooking, I ordered the spaghetti with meatballs and mushrooms added. HUGE PORTION split this between... More

Not sure of where to go, this was a random choice. The place was VERY busy which was a good sign. You had a choice of the menu or the smorgasbord. We chose the smorgasbord and were not disappointed. Lots and lots of choices, all of it good. They kept everything filled up, not like some places, when it is... More

We went to Solda's on a Friday night, Pasta Night, served buffet style. Not just pasta, there was lots of other items, salads, beef, potatoes, veggies, etc. The hot food was hot, looked good and the staff were great. My only disappointment was the lack of "wow factor" in the food. It was bland and carb-heavy. I'd go back to... More

Solda's is our go to restaurant in Port Alberni for taking visitors for reliable food with good variety. Can't understand why their pizza menu is separate from the regular menu. We have been coming here for 7 years and just discovered their pizza, which is excellent and very reasonably priced. I love their turkey burger, my husband likes the pasta... More

We went to this restaurant on our way to Tofino. Service was decent, the waitress did her best to please us. The food was tasteless. My son ordered a Pizza, he couldn't eat it, the toppings were gross. My chicken quesadilla was filled with huge pieces of peppers, 2 tiny crumbs of chicken, no dressing. All those frames , advertisement... More
