A fine local Italian place. Excellent respectful service and great good. The seafood specials are always good. It's BYOB. Pricier than the many other Italian places in the area but worth it

This is a lovely restaurant with terrific seating capacity, a well trained, friendly staff, and mostly good food. Stick to the basics and you'll do fine. A bit expensive, but they honor reservations. They also have a small wine list. If you're a serious drinker, bring your own.

Been to Solo many times. The cuisine never disappoints. Last evening dined with friends. While I understand it's a weekend and 2 weeks before Christmas, but the restaurant packed tables in so tight there was absolutely no room for people to move, get up or for even that matter their staff to even place the dishes on the table. Even... More

I had a great dinner at Soli during a business trip to Freehold. I'm a sucker for old-time NJ Italian restaurants, having grown up here and being Italian-American, and this is a very good one. Their salads are fresh and huge, and I had a very good eggplant Parmesan for my main course. The wine list is quite short, but... More

We went on a Saturday night and didn't have a reservation. However, we were seated immediately. They have a very limited wine list but you can BYOB.

Dinner specials were excellent as well as the salads and appetizers. Service was friendly and patient with our 'long term' meal.
