This is a great little restaurant in the Gulf Gate area of Sarasota. You feel very welcome from the time you enter the restaurant and are greeted by Franca the owner, till you finish your meal. Our appetizer of Arancini was yummy and our entrees of lasagna, veal parm and eggplant parm were just as good. We will definitely return!... More

The pizza was great however completing the order on the phone was annoying to say the least. I believe the girl who answered the phone was new, I kept getting put on hold. She finally got the order right and quoted me a price. I explained i was going to pay with a card and was put on hold again.... More

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.
