The food was delicious and the service was great! I highly recommend Solorzano's to anyone who visits Sarasota and is in search of real Italian cooking.

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.

We love this place. Love that you can order the massive pieces by the slice for families who have all different tastes!

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

after 10 years of barely surviving in palate deprivation-perhaps someone "dropped a dime" and called their goombas begging them to bring their dough, pasta, and "gravy" to an ethnic starved Southwest Florida!...growing up in Boston's North End coming here...now maybe we'll stay! The Margherita pizza was a little dry , the Calzone's dough and cheese was heavenly-perhaps expand on Calzone... More

Being Italian myself, this restaurant is what true Italians know, love and appreciate. Authentic Italian family recipes and delicious food, flavor in every dish...great wine selection...ambiance...fantastic entertainment (Sheryn on Thursday nights and Saturday nights). Make a reservation - it's comfortably small which adds to the intimate 'family' feel!

My wife and I found this wonderful place on tripadvisor. The hostess / waitress was very welcoming and friendly, service was impeccable. My wife could not decide between the pasta and meatballs or bolognese...so let's give you both! The food was a great as the service. The meatballs were the among the best I have ever had in any part... More
