Sole Mare is an excellent Italian restaurant in Aruba. I would rate it 5 stars as a restaurant in Aruba, but on a worldwide basis having eaten Italian food in Italy, I can only give it 4 stars. It was me and my 2 teenage children eating dinner. We had the caesar salad and bruschetta for appetizers. Each of us... More

Amazing Italian food just like what you would find in the states. The food is made to order, so be patient. It is so worth the wait. The cheese wheel is amazing.

We went to Sole Mare with friends and the food was very good. The waiter expected us to order our drinks immediately, even though we barely had time to look at the wine list. He stood over us while we were perusing the list, then finally took the hint and moved away. This gave us the feeling that the meal... More

The food here is excellent and rank in the top 5 Italian restaurants we have experience. The pasta is homemade along with almost eventing else. We went with another couple and will definitely be back - Highly Recommended. The entrees are in 25 to 32 dollar range except for some of the lobster based dishes but the portions are huge.... More

Visited July 2016. Did not make a reservation but my husband and I were accommodated almost immediately. Since we had eaten a lot on our two week vacation, we decided to only have wine and dinner with no appetizer or side. Got the Spaghetti Formaggio Parmigiano which is an authentic Italian dish flamed with whisky right at your table in... More

Dined at Sole Mare twice last week. The first night I ordered the pasta with eggplant which I have had there for many, many years. The flavor was excellent but I must be honest that there was very little eggplant in the dish. the clams with white wine and garlic were excellent as my appetizer so much so that I... More

We vacationed in Aruba for the first time in May of 2016. On a friend's recommendation we had dinner at Sole Mare and yes we tried the cheese bowl.. excellent. Since there were so many fabulous choices on the menu, our waiter, Rodell, offered to prepare it as an appetizer for all four of us. Thanks Rodell and thanks for... More

15 years of travelling to Aruba and somehow we never ate here before. My wife had the pasta bolognese and I had octopus with white clam sauce over black (squid ink) pasta. Octopus is very easy to make rubbery. This was done perfectly! The outer part had a perfect meaty texture, while the center was soft and suptle as it... More

Best Italian food on the island. We got the pasta that is tossed in the cheese with the whiskey and it was delicious. We started with the minestrone soup and the bruschetta and both were great. We've been here a couple times and the food is absolutely delicious.
