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.

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
