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... read more

Fabulous from the minute we walked in the restaurant. We were greated immediately and got a fabulous table for 4. Wine list is extensive with great wines and food was absolutely delicious. We felt like taken back an era to Italy of days gone by with the music and decor. What a rare find, so much fun, such great care... 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!

This review is for the RESTAURANT - (NOT the Pizza place - this family also owns a chain of pizza places). We went on a Thursday night in June 2015 - it was nothing short of perfection. THE PLACE: The atmosphere is like nothing else in Sarasota (dark, intimate, romantic - a true touch of class). We called and made... More

We went in with a 8 top and there was only one customer in the whole building. We wanted to sit closer to the window so we can see each other and eat in the light. The owner told us that we cannot move his tables and that he will not move them himself to accommodate our business. Me and... More
