We literally stumbled upon Solorzano's looking for a different place to get a quick bite to eat. It is now our new favorite place to dine. There is no hustle and bustle, Franca is so warm and welcoming and the atmosphere is truly relaxing. Great music, the most fantastic wine choices and of course delicious traditional Italian food.

We are new to Sarasota and are extremely happy to have found Solarzano's. We had a wonderful pizza and garlic knots. My only problem is they deliver and we are within walking distance. I better get the fat pants back out! We will be regular customers.

I was born in New York City and raised in New Jersey. When it comes to Italian food, I know greatness. From the service to their top quality ingredients, Solorzano's Italian Restaurant has managed to do it all. I have yet to have a dish there that didn't absolutely amaze me. From there fine selection of wines to there authentic... More

Solarzano is a Sarasota treasure! Being of Italian descent we can recommend it to be very authentic. The service is great and the atmosphere quaint. A visit to Sarasota without eating here would not be the same.

We love the pizza at Solorzano's. It's a bit on the pricey side. They have excellent, crispy crust and the sauce has nice flavor and is spicey. The kids tend to go for the cheese and the parents Margherita. We almost always pop in and pickup. There is some seating outside. Right in the heart of Siesta Village.

In response to the dpatonsr family, How can you order food from another restaurant and then get mad at the owner for not allowing the food into her restaurant. I was at the restaurant and you were rude. Maybe hungry-howies would be a better choice.

It has been our heartfelt and sincere experience to be dining at this restaurant for the past 5 years on at least a monthly basis. It says something that the Solorzanos' have been totally consistent in terms of quality Southern Italian cuisine served in impeccable style and with consummate grace. They so accommodate their patrons that you merely have to... More

I was there to hear how rude you were. You had the nerve to ask if you could bring food from another restaurant into their place because your son wanted a hamburger. You should have gone to McDonald's as that is how you were dressed. Then u wanted to pay half price for your son. This is an upper class... More
