Stopped in with friends on a whim looking for something new. Our server, an owner, was so nice. The menu is small but covers the Italian bases. They do it well. The gnocchi was fabulous. Salmon well prepared and flavorful. No gluten free here but will sub veggies for pasta, and the veggies are beautiful. Nice wine list as well.... More

We were visiting in Venice and looked on trip advisor for an Italian restaurant. It's owned by a couple from New Jersey - the nicest people - Franca is the hostess and her husband is the chef. The food is just terrific. We had the seafood ravioli and the Zupa de pesce. The dessert was also fabulous as was the... More

It's like visiting your old Italian Great Aunt from the Old Country. Manga, Manga. You gotta eat. I made lotsa food for you tonight. And its all good. And it is delicious, plentiful and like you would get from home. You are treated like family (in a nice way). One night they have a keyboard player and singer who belts... More

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. No detail... More

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.
