    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.

    Service was ridiculously bad.We were a party of 4 w/simple orders, yet everything seemed to take way too long.I had to grab passing employees twice to ask them to send our server over.By the time our entrees arrived we had been there over 1 hr.Our server apologized, and said the manager would be right over.If the mgr was 1 of the 3 who then rushed to get our food on the table, he/she did not say a word to us--maybe needs a refresher in manager 101.My ravioli looked and tasted like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for awhile.The rest of the food was fine.To cap off the evening, the valet brought the wrong car.I may go back again b/c I know this is a better restaurant than this visit would indicate, but not any time soon. Disappointing.

    So, the good is really good and the wait staff is attentive. However, my wife and I had ordered a couple of appetizers and we were not served our salad until AFTER our main course arrived. I find this to be unacceptable. When the salad finally arrived, we were asked if we still wanted it. They should have comp'd the salad--the problem is that the owner was too busy kissing up to a table of apparent VIPs. Everyone should be a VIP and I just feel for a $165 dinner you could probably do better elsewhere. That being said, the food was tasty and our waiter was very nice.

    We had not ordered dessert and so were surprised when a plate of cookies and a bowl with berries was put on our table; we thought it was a surprise gesture of some sort by the restaurant, so we consumed them. However, the items appeared on our check! We paid the total, however, but leaving we inadvertently took both parts of the bill. The owner followed us out to the parking lot and asked for the restaurant's part of the bill. We also told him about the dessert and told him not to take the waiter to task for the mistake. He said he would not and insisted on reimbursing us in cash for the desserts, so all ended on a resolved and happy note.

    Clearly they have wait staff gems and duds based on the varying reviews. We got a dud. Older man, glasses...he we would directly at us the walk somewhere else. Took us 30 minutes to even get our order in. He would always just stand in front us and wait for us to speak. It was one of the worst service experiences I have ever had. Food good enough though. But bathrooms, while nicely decorated, smelled horrible and clearly were not cleaned well. Fix these two things and maybe I'll come back.

    I have been going Ca Del Sole for a few years, but these last 2 visits, 2 nights in a row, by coincidence, were great. On both nights, I was entertaining clients. The selections were so wonderful I ordered family style for the tables to share numerous dishes, so we could have a taste of all their selections. Every dish was prepared with care, and were all delicious. The calf liver, the boneless chicken, pasta dishes, antipasti; were all delicious. Great wine list. Kudos to the owner, Andrea Bullo, I enjoyed both nights tremendously. By the way, I'm a New Yorker, and the food stood up quite well to my prejudiced NY palette.

    We had such a wonderful experience at Ca Del Sole. The service was wonderful and attentive, and the food was out of this world. The spinach and carrot fettuccine with ragu sauce was out of this world and the beef ravioli with parmesan sauce and shaved truffles was delectable. The dining room could use a facelift, but I'm more concerned about the food and service, which were spot on. We can't wait to return with friends!
