First time here. Our food was good (4 stars), just needed a little salt is all. The people were very nice. It's nice when the restaurant owner is walking around asking how your food is. They seem to care. It's also nice to see what are obviously regulars at a restaurant, of which they have many (return customers). We only... More

6516 Superior Ave.is a great dinner destination. We knew we came to the right place for Saturday night pizza when we received a great greeting from the guys at the Solorzanos counter. The salads came out cold and crisp with a terrific balsamic dressing. Pizzas have a thin crust and just the right toppings. Thanks to Kenny and Brandon for... More

Hubby and I went to Solorzano's Italian Restaurant for dinner on a Saturday evening. We had reservations which was good since there was only one open table. (This is a small intimate dining room with 9 tables.) We love Solorzano's pizza and found out that the sons have the pizza places and the parents have the Italian Restaurant. We were... More

We booked a table here, having no idea what to expect. We were in for a real treat. We both had delicious salads followed by the specials which were unbelievably good (we were oohing and aahing with every mouthful) and a bottle of the most amazing Chianti Classico Reserva. One of the best my wine buff husband had ever had.... More

We love Solorzano's! Since we do not live near, we find ourselves coming here for special occasions,or to bring others who have never been.They are NEVER disappointed! It is ALWAYS consistent, as it is family operated, with the wonderful Franca greeting you when you arrive. The food is prepared by her husband, Carlos, and you feel like you are in... More

We showed up here without reservations on a Thursday night. The place was packed and lively which is always a good sign. To our surprise they managed to seat us. The service was fairly good and the food was excellent. The decor of the place is lovely - it is very busy and has lots of character. They had a... More

Absolutely delicious Italian food and ambiance. Franca, the owner, makes you feel right at home and makes sure everything is just perfect. Being from NJ, we chatted about familiar places, bringing back memories of years past. The interior is awesome and definitely makes you feel like you are dining in Little Italy. A must stop when in town, but I... More

The incredible food was just the beginning. The service was off the chart; it felt like a private dining room. Franca (our head server) made us feel like we were right at home. The rustic setting was filled with European charm. It was a perfect Italian dinning experience. The dining room was refined but at the same time the staff... More

We stumbled across this lovely, small restaurant in a strip mall in the Gulf Gate area. The antipasti was very authentic with the best of salami and cheeses. Our dinners of broccoli raab and sausage and veal parm was excellent. What makes the experience most enjoyable is the owner, Franca, was very personable.
