Consistently good food, friendly service, a pleasure to dine there. This is not a fancy place, but you will be glad you came :)

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

We have visited O Sole Mio three times now and haven't been disappointed at all. The food is good as is the service and the desserts are heavenly. I wouldn't say it's the best pizza in the area but it's right up there towards the top.

“What Do You Want”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2011

Our visit was marred somewhat by about 12 kids at their soccer team outing. You could not hear yourself think unless you were a really loud thinker. Still the service was good and the food just OK. Probably a little worse than expected. This is based on a small sample of dishes. The salad that comes with the meal is standard food service fare -- not a hint of care. I had chicken picata which may have been southern style , southern US that is. The sauced was goopy and if it had ever been near wine it was not evident to the taste. Not a shade of the picate or slightly sour taste that makes well prepared chicken picante good. I may try it again in hopes that it is a tad more authentic but for now it is one of places that people rate high because they want to have "discovered" something. By the way, not inexpensive. $50+ and we each had one glass of house wine.

“Wonderful little place...our local favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2011

The restaurant is small, so get there early or you will have a wait, especially on the weekends. I guess the secret is out...a real gem hidden next to Publix in Jonesville. We've never had a bad experience...the food is wonderful, including the pizza (which we get as take more often than we should). I love their lobster ravioli and they have the freshest garlic rolls. Their seafood pasta over linguini in white wine is wonderful. The portions are huge so we generally get an appetizer and one meal and it is more than enough for my husband and me. If you love Italian, you'll love this place. The service is great too...your glass is never empty! Just wish it were a bit bigger with more space between the tables.
