Superb food at very reasonable rate. Had a rib eye steak with 4 tiger shrimps, Mediterranean salad, pasta all for 26... Wow and everything was 3AAA... It was the daily special. I am a big eater and couldn't finish the portions... Stuffed

“Worth driving to Canada for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Our "go to" restaurant in the Canadian Sault was Gran Festa until they closed a few years ago. Fortunately the chef and some of the servers at Solo had worked at Gran Festa, so the quality of the food is very good and the service is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is pleasant and it can get lively on a busy evening—especially when there's a hockey game on at the Essar Centre across the street.
Solo offers a number of interesting salads, including a warm mushroom salad, and a wide variety of pastas, pizzas, and dinner entrees. The minestrone soup is good, and roasted garlic comes with the Italian bread. Favorite entrees are the grilled salmon in caramelized leek sauce, the stuffed chicken breast, and the red snapper Sicilian. For a treat, you can dip a chocolate-covered biscotti in your coffee.
The main thing Solo lacks is a good wine list. The only wines by the glass are a few reds & whites by Jackson-Triggs (the Canadian equivalent of Gallo's jug wines), and two mediocre Italian wines. Most of the other good restaurants in Soo Canada (Quattro, Gliss, View, Panna, etc.) have much better wine selections, both bottled and by the glass. Otherwise, its a great place to go for lunch before a show at the Galaxy Theatre, say, or dinner afterward.

“A local favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Best rack of lamb in town!

Nice selection of out of the ordinary appetizer choices. Layout is a little crowded, but they've added some nice additional rooms for small party groups. Service is not consistent but when they've got it together, it's hard to beat. The food is always consistently excellent and good value for the quality.

“A big fan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I have only good things to say about Solo. I've chosen this location for quiet dinners, family celebrations, or even just grabbing a dessert and wine at the bar. The food, atmosphere, and service have always been to my liking. The menu has a great selection and I always have a hard time making a decision, which has led to many shared plates in order to try it all. Pricing is in the casual fine dining range, but is appropriate considering the quality and quantity of food. My most recent visit confirmed all of these things yet again.
