My husband and I have been wanting to try Solórzano's in Gulf Gate for awhile now and we are so glad we did! Food is fabulous! The owner was gractious and gave us the specials and she recommended an amazing bottle of red Italian wine. The carafe of water at beginning of dinner was perfect, because we hate having to... More

While driving, we found this place tucked away in a strip-mall style area behind larger shopping plazas. I made reservations for a Thursday evening because I found out there was live music Thursdays. It was an awesome evening! It is a small, intimate restaurant. The hostess was so welcoming and accomodating. All authentic homemade real Italian food. I was in... More

We went to this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. It is a bit of a drive from downtown Sarasota but it's worth the drive. Atmospheric, small. (but by no means cramped) place, lovely decor but most importantly delicious hearty Italian fare! Friendly service too. They deserve their success.

Saw this little place while exploring the area. Decided to stop in on one of the 4 nights they are open. Lovely little restaurant (10 tables or so), run by the couple whose sons run the Solórzano's pizza restaurants. Features a small, but varied menu, and mid range prices. I chose Pasta e Fagioli as a starter....very, very good, probably... More

Second time to this restaurant and another amazing dinner. Food, wine, service, and atmosphere were all great! Franca was friendly and gracious while her husband, Carlos, used his wonderful culinary skills to make us a dinner we will remember for a long time. When in Sarasota, be sure to hunt this place down. It is well worth the effort. Thursday... More

We had dinner at Solorzano's Italian Restaurant for the first time last night and wondered to ourselves why we had not found it sooner. That's how good it was. It is a small place that reminded me of the cozy neighborhood restaurants that were so prevalent in my younger days in New York. My wife and I ordered sausage and... More

My friend and I ditched our husbands and treated our tastebuds to Italian beauty. I was craving linguine with fresh baby clams and was not disappointed- the broth is the key to this succulent dish and those clams were tender and sweet, the pasta a perfect al dente. I must say I was not shy about dunking my crusty bread... More
