“Love solo- authentic italian ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

This is the only italian restaurant my husband will go to (his family is from Naples area). We love the Neapolitan style pizza and the pasta dishes. Great BYOB- Giorgio (the owner) is a really nice guy too. They don't have too many Italian American dishes on the menu, but you can ask and they will make it.

“Nice Casual Taste of Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We dined at Solo for the first time Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We were 3 couples who planned to spend an evening together. The service was attentive but not rushed. We shared salads, which were certainly big enough. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. The night was capped off with a couple of shared desserts and cappuccinos. We will be back.

“Nice little Italian spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Good food and friendly staff but the wait for a table with or without reservation can be long especially on a Saturday night. The pasta dishes are all great. I did not enjoy the steak I had on one visit. The owner is very nice and its a comfortable place to go for a good Italian meal.

“Casual southern/northern Italian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Homemade pasta was excellent! Nice mix of northern/southern offerings. Friendly and attentive service. One of the best Italian restaurants in the Freehold area. They sell wine but you can bring your own. Saltimboca was wonderful.
