This is a small restaurant with an outdoor patio. In is located in a small strip mall next to a movie theater. The attraction is the food and service. Have been here many times and never disappointed.

Wow, this is a hidden jewel! The food was excellent, the waiter staff was "on it." This is on-par with some of the best restaurants in Beverly Hills - best Italian food I've ever had in the entire San Fernando Valley! Highly recommend. They have exterior and interior seating. For what you get and compared to other excellent Italian restaurants... More

Small friendly place with good service and food. Nice basic Italian menu with many daily specials. Prices are reasonable. $10 wine corkage charge also reasonable. As others have noted we like the casual quiet ambiance.

We go to Cafe Sole at least once a month. So nice to have a small neighborhood restaurant with consistently delicious food, attentive and friendly service and a cozy, calm ambiance. The fish specials are always particularly good. We highly recommend this place!

If I close my eyes, I can imagine that I am sitting in a small cafe outside of St. Peter's in Rome. The food is delicious. I love the numerous choices of menu items. A very attentive staff and a added perk...they speak Italian. I will definitely come back again.

We have been going to Cafe Sole for a few years. It feels like a family restaurant and the food tastes authentic. It is one of the closest experiences I have had in Los Angeles for a restaurant to feel like and taste like as if it was in a neighborhood in Rome. It is simple and the service is... More

We had a terrific dinner here. The whole branzino which is filleted table side is very good and certainly enough for two. The menu has many choices but there must have been 8 specials including a delicious leek and tomato soup and a fish with a wonderful livornese sauce.

My family goes to Cafe Sole almost every week. I noticed it is popular with the people having a dinner and theater date. Italian food, fish, dessert and wine are very high quality. Staff (owner, waiters, buss) are very charming, attentive and professional. Price is a little high. You get what you pay for. It is worth it! We often... More

You know how it is. " Where do you want to go to dinner?" "I don't know. Where do you want to go to dinner?" Our final answer is usually Cafe Sole because the food is very good and the service is good and personal. Want Italian? Cafe Sole!

Very low-key, homey Italian restaurant with lots of traditional So. Italian cooking. Good service with additional outside eating spaces.
