Delicious food; generous portions

Dined here tonight with my daughter and two friends. We each had something different, and every meal was delicious. My gnocchi was prepared in a lightly flavored Gorgonzola butter sauce, and my daughter's veal parmigiana was tender and flavorful. Hers was served with a side of pasta which she... read more

We were in the area furniture shopping and used Trip Advisor to look for a dinner restaurant. Nice call!! From the table settings, service, wine, and meal it was all special. So fresh and homemade. Tomato and onion salad, pork shank, bread, pasta: All were wonderful, and let's face it that is extraordinary. If you are in the area, treat... More

Whilst on holiday in Sarasota we saw that this was a highly recommended so we thought we would give it a go. However, it was closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday's. The evening we went there was a big party and entertainment which made it quite noisy and we were unable to hear ourselves properly, however, we did think the entertainment... More

My wife was craving good Italian food and since she was celebrating her 40th birthday we had to hunt it down. I didn't have high hopes because it's Florida but after reading some reviews, Solorzano sounded like it was worth the drive. As soon as we walked into the restaurant I knew we were going to experience some authentic Italian... More

My wife and I ate here this evening and it was a pleasant surprise. The ambience was quaint, stylish and very clean. The food was outstanding, authentic Italian, and having spent much time in parts of Italy I can appreciate home made pasta. Service was also great, with the owner also being the waitress, she was social, informative and clearly... More

This restaurant has a lot of charm. Beautifully set tables with linens and sparkling silver and glass, colorful decor with lots of memorabilia and very, very cozy. It was as if we were guests dining in someone’s home; with attention without intrusion. The food was rivaled only by the excellent entertainment provided by a local chanteuse who graciously shared the... More

Solorzano's Italian Restaurant is most defiantly the best Italian restaurant with an outstanding staff, amazing owners, stunning decor, and most importantly the food cooked to absolute perfection. The owners Franca and Carlos Solorzano have an astounding Italian restaurant that had started in Hoboken, New Jersey now located in Sarasota, Florida and still kicking! Absolutely flawless!
