We ate here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge (Hotel Imperial) and enjoyed our evening. The food is very good (although they could have a few more vegetarian, non-pasta options) and the service was very Italian: friendly and professional. We enjoyed the colorful cast of characters in the restaurant: other tourists such as ourselves along with locals who clearly knew the owner. It was a pleasant surprise to see the lead ballerina from the Vienna State Ballet production we had just seen arrive for a late meal as we were eating. And we enjoyed sharing glasses of Grappa and Limoncello at the owner's suggestion at the end of our meal.

Friendly, nice atmosphere, excellent food prepared with the very best ingredients, that all makes Sole a real choice for Italian food in Vienna. It is a best choice for many locals and for lots of people connected to the music scene in Vienna. That alone should be recommendation enough! Fine pizzas, excellent salads and delicious desserts. A great choice for vegetarians. Very good wines. And a warming, charming reception. During summer, sitting outside in one of Vienna's pleasant streets.

Sole, as the name suggests, specialists in fish dishes. It is located in a pedestrian lane way - Annagasse - which is in the heart of the old part of Vienna. On warmer evenings the outside tables are a lovely place to eat. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. We both enjoyed a delicious Sea Bass somehow cooked with a light potato and gratin coating, acccompanied by spinech. It was fresh and delicious. The accompanying Pinot Gris was perfect. We decided to finish with a cheese platter and a glass of red. This was a slight mistake as the cheese selection was most unusual and included Parmesan, which I am more used to having on the top of a pasta. But it was still fun and the red was good. The prices were reasonable, not cheap. A great experience on a warm evening.

Near the Staatsoper and frequented often by singers and musicians after the performance. We went there with a lifelong Viennese and opera lover and had an outstanding meal–everything done to perfection–with excellent service.
