    We have dined here several times. My son has dined here and told us about the place. They bought us a gift card for our 50th anniversary and all four of us had dinner. Other friends went to dinner here with us a month ago and last Saturday we treated our kids for their 16th anniversary. If you count the total of individual meals, many, there was never a negative comment. This location is near Universal Studios and major hotels, so you see many in the entertainment field. Expect dinner for four, with wine, tax, and tips to run about $220. I expect we will return many more times.l

    We ordered cocktails that were conspicuously light on liquor. They fixed them upon request. Our arugula and baby artichoke salad had no artichoke. Oops, they were out and forgot mention it. But the real disappointment was the $55.00 white truffle linguini which was terrible. The space was attractive and they were nice to our kids, but that was definitely the best of it.

    First time for brunch at Ca Del Sole, and it was wonderful! Somewhat limited brunch menu (mostly egg items and 1 waffle), but perhaps one could also order from their regular lunch menu (didn't ask because I was interested in eggs)! The outdoor setting is lovely and the cabanas afford some privacy while still enjoying the fresh air.

    I live less than two miles away a me used to go when it was Maison Gerard, many years ago. From the begging of its ownership change the Devore was a big improvement, as was the food. After a slump a few years ago the restaurant has vastly improved the food quality and variety. Plus, they have added a cabana feel to outdoor tables through canvas draping. The patio is very pretty as well as serene. Service was excellent. All this sai, please be assured that I was not bribed by the owners for this review.

    Exactly what I was in the mood for at the end of a business trip. Linguini nere with Sicilian sausage accompanied by verdure alla griglia (a personal request and a nice half bottle of Barolo. On a Saturday night, service was prompt and attentive without being in your face. 15 minute walk back up the hill to the Hilton Universal City burned off a few of the calgories! Will definitely return.

    The food is delicious, well prepared in a traditional way. I was there with a friend and we were taking our time. I was specific about that, and yet, the entre arrived rather fast while we were still eating our starters. We had to send them back for 15 minutes. I also thought that the restaurant is overpriced. My Dover Sole (three very small filets) was $40.00 The wait staff are nice- but do not pay attention to timing.

    I took a nice young lady here for our first date, BEAUTIFUL ambiance &food was excellent. But there was room for improvement, I had mentioned in the notes it was a first date, so naturally we would need more time &probably a little help with the menu. The server, Jose, greeted us, but did not use my name once. I had no idea if there was a special, &I had to suggest the tuna tartar to my date. I was only given suggestions after his second visit after I told him I needed more time &wasn't sure what I was in the mood for. The food came out almost instantly, which he apologized for, but hey, I was impressed at the kitchen time. I told the Busser I wanted to only have my plate cleared once she was finished, &was visited multiple times.

    We had a great time at Ca, except for the service. The new decor is great and the ambiance is great. We loved the food except for the lack of service. The waiter would walk by and see that our drinks were empty and not ask if we needed another for about 10 min each time. In fact, I had to flag him down and tell him we needed a refill after our first. I was having cokes while my wife was drinking cocktails. I was the designated driver. It was so bad that the other waiter asked if we needed a refill and to take our orders. Our waiter blew!

    I had not been to Ca Del Sole I years but I remembered it was a great dining place back then. So it was delightful to find it had remained as good as I recalled. We asked for a quiet booth on our Open Table reservation & it was provided. Also mentioned our anniversary and we were surprised with a special dessert plate complete with candle & "Happy Anniversary" piped in chocolate on the edge. Nice touch! Their wine list is vast with many fine Italian wines at prices that will ruin your budget, but this balanced with many excellent choices of good wines by the glass or bottle. They also have a small carafe of two glasses available in some wines. Our meal was delightful! Service perfect & timely! We will definetly return.

    We introduced out-of-town guests to one of the real pleasures of dining out in the Valley, Ca Del Sole. We took advantage of the perfect weather and sat outside in a curtained stall beneath a chandelier. A pair of trees nearby resembled the legs of an elephant. My Caesar's salad was crisp, the seafood and pasta perfectly al dente with a savory red sauce. Service was professional and courteous; no one grumbled that our party of eight stayed late and closed the place. All in all, a convivial, relaxed and delicious outdoor dining experience.

    Have been coming here for many years. Valet parking right next to entrance. Made reservation for party of 5 and we were seated immediately. Excellent appetizers - some large enough to share. We've always loved their pastas and had the best spaghetti vongole. Perfectly prepared. Always love sitting on the outdoor patio but it was too warm so we elected to sit inside. Never been disappointed at Ca Del Sole & look forward to our next lunch or dinner there.
