My wife and I were down for vacation, always looking for good restaurants. Picked Solorzano's off the 'net based on the existing reviews. I can't remember the last time I had an Italian meal that good. The homemade sauce was incredible. The meatballs divine. Great atmosphere and a warm welcome from the (owner?) Franca, who was very personable. Just don't... More

Not only great food but a great hostess. I have never felt more at home than when eating here. Everyone is treated as part of the family. Food is exceptional. Make reservations though as it is a small restaurant and fills quickly at dinner time.

Finding Solorzano's was like finding a gemstone in the bottom of a Cracker Jack box. But before I get too far ahead of myself, let to put this into context. I have lived in New Jersey my whole life and am fortunate to live near New York City and Philadelphia, where there is an abundance of good food - especially... More

NJ is more than a turnpike. It is known for excellent Italian restaurants and now Sarasota gets to share with NJ. The food is excellent from the appetizers we shared clams casino and eggplant rollatini to veal psrmigiana and homemade veal meatballs with macaroni (wide noodles). It is authentic Italian cuisine. Also don't be in a rush, food is prepared... More

I went to dinner with a couple of friends. I had asked them what was their favorite restaurant and Solorzano's was it. Great food, service and everything about it was very pleasant.

This is hands down my favorite place to eat. Love the ambience and the service and the food. Very warm and cozy northern feel. Would recommend this place without hesitation to anyone. This is not some mill kitchen everything is made to order and served hot. Always have a great variety and if have never been before need to try... More

Went with a party on New Years Eve and decided to go back. Wow. The food is great and Franca and Carlos make you feel like old friends. This is small, intimate and friendly. Have been told by my New York friends that it reminds them of restaurants there. You won't be sorry if you stop here for dinner. Prices... More

If you read the Trip Advisor reviews of this place you will get a pretty good idea of what it is like. We had salads and pasta our friends had the seafood special. The food is very good although I ordered the seafood pasta with white sauce and it arrived with red sauce. Do I send it back and wait... More
