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

This is a beautiful yet cozy restaurant! They are a super sweet family. They had so much detail in this place from beautiful glasses, and family pictures on the wall to fresh roses on each table! The food is fantastic! The lasagne is the best I've ever had! The lobster and shrimp ravioli is amazing and they use actual chunks... More

From start to finish it was a perfect evening. We had a 6:00 PM reservation (recommend making a reservation, since there are only 10 tables). We were seated, and then it just started. The best ever Italian we've had in years. it was like when you were growing up and your Mom and Aunts made dinner. The antipasto was huge... More
