5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We walked in the other night with our daughter who just had horrendous airline troubles, and she wanted comfort food and a glass of wine! Well, she got it! We had several pasta dishes, which were all excellent, the ability to mix and match the pasta with the sauce is a plus! My wife had an excellent Osso Bucco. We... More

Without a reservation we were able to get into this fine establishment. From the hostess, wait staff and manager we were treated with a warm greeting and most gracious hospitality. The food was excellent. Home made macaroni. I think it was called pasta primavera. Can't beat it. Husband had chicken parm and loved it as well. (Served as a great... More

Other sister in law had some kind of mushrooms and pasta and she loved it. Brother in law had shrimp scampi which he said was... More

I debating not making a review because I got the vibe from everyone I spoke to that this amazing resturant is a hidden gem and I would like to keep it that way. Every single BITE I had was mouth watering and I would like to think that my husband and I have ate at some of the best Italian... More

Took my party of 8 while visiting Aruba to Sole Mare. I called them with an hour in advance to let them know. Ambiance is decent but really average considering the price. We were cheerfully greeted upon arrival and taken to our table promptly. I'm rating the service as "decent"...this is tough for me because Our main waiter was excellent!... More

We return here every year and are never disappointed. The food is top notch as well as the service. Gianni's is good but Sole Mare is better. If you crave great Italian food then Sole Mare is for you.

The ambiance is nothing special...but the food makes up for it! The wait staff could be a bit friendlier but weren't horrible. The food was delish..I got the fettuccini Alfredo which was out of this world...my parents got the spaghetti formaggio which is for 2 but they loved their meal as well! I would definitely recommend a visit at least... More

We had a stellar dinner at Sole Mare during our recent visit to Aruba. We started with a grilled octopus appetizer. The restaurant also serves delicious polenta fries with a spicy marinara as an alternative to just bread that you would get elsewhere. My husband ordered the smoked salmon vodka sauce pasta special and I had the Spaghetti del Mare.... More

This Is the first restaurant we go to when we come to Aruba. Food is always consistent and very good food. Only negative is the service. After 16years it still hasn't improved. The staff needs to be more attentive when you are first seated. Large portions. Of course they are known for their wheel of cheese. Where they light it... More
