Great Italian Cuisine
Since we were in the mood for Italian, we chose SoLita. It was definitely the right choice. The food was so delicious and authentic. The portions were huge, so it was definitely worth the money. We had the eggplant stack as an appetizer- AMAZING. For entrees we had the gnocchi and the linguine with clam sauce. Both were absolutely delicious. If you are looking for good Italian cuisine in a nice atmosphere, this is definitely the place.

Delicious Italian food
Surprised at the empty restaurant 6:45 pm in a Sunday. Delicious pasta bolognese, fresh linguine w clams, and fire grilled pizza. Attentive service. Recommend to all. Stylish upscale decor. Perfect for romantic dinner.

Just what we wanted, a great restaurant with great food and wine. But, if you are looking for a quite place, than this might be a little loud, which for my wife and I was not a problem at all. Definitely will go back more times.

I've arrived a bit late on
I've arrived a bit late on a week night, so it wasn't overly crowded. A big plus for me as I was on crutches. The staff was very accommodating & made me feel very comfortable. Our eggplant appetizer was delicious. I had the veal parm for dinner & my husband had the salmon, both we very good. Our waiter was right on top of everything, made the evening enjoyable. I will recommend to others.

The food and service was very good. However, if you like it loud and energetic for dinner (dj spinning house music in the dinning room) this is the place for you. Not so if your looking for romantic.

Good with a very nice wine list
This is a very nice room which starts to liven up starting at 8-9 o'clock. I thought the food was good, but certainly not great. The low points of out dinner were that the Caesar salad was tasteless with no tang or garlic flavor at all. The fedelini pomodoro was swimming in oil that had settled to the bottom of the bowl. On a high note, the rigatoni with sunday sauce was very tasty, and the pork as tender as could be. The veal chop was also excellent and very tender.
The service was attentive and friendly. My only gripe is my pet peeve about there not being a hostess at the podium when we arrived. The restaurant was nearly empty at that time (7:00) and while the wait staff was busy moving around the restaurant, the podium was empty.

Wonderful experience! We loved the personal attention from our server and the attention to detail. The food was amazing! We had a great night out with our out of town guests!

2nd Visit as Pleasant as the 1st!
This was my 2nd visit to Solitas Las Olas...and I'm glad I came back! Everything - the food, the service, the ambience - was very good! I had different dining companion this time and she was equally pleased as my former guest. I highly recommend this restaurant for a very pleasant dining experience!

Great food and overall experience
The food was very flavorful and the courses came to our table with great timing. Our waiter checked on us a few times throughout the meal and refilled our water without us asking. He also packed my leftovers. The main courses were especially good. I had salmon and my friend had chicken marsala. Everything was great. We will go again.

The food was delicious..the owner a wonderful business man with tact and diplomacy. The server left much to be desired. From the moment Jimmy arrived at our table without a smile...very blase attitude and cold. Appears not to like his job.

Hot spot with a hot spot...
I'm a big fan of Solita, both the Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach locations. I invited a couple to join me and my boyfriend for dinner on Las Olas, as they had never tried Solita. I suggested everyone hold their orders until the server gave us the specials. It's been my experience that the specials menu usually holds a couple of fabulous dishes that aren't on the regular menu. We started with the eggplant stack and fried mozzarella. Both were delicious. 2 of us tried the filet mignon, which was butterflied, breaded and served with mozzarella and tomatoes on top. Amazing! The only downside to our evening was a lack of A/C in the restaurant that night. It was quite warm and uncomfortable. Whew!

Excellent respect and privacy by the staff for business meeting. Great food, great ambiance.

Our night at Solita Las Olas
We thoroughly enjoyed our entire experience at this lovely restaurant. The people are gracious, excellent service, great food withy a wide selection for everyone's taste buds, and a leisurely pace that is set by your own timetable.

Sending my brother out in style
I was hosting an event for my brother's bachelor party, and the food was excellent. Even though the entrees took a few extra minutes to get to the table, the flavors and staff more than made the wait worth it.

the food, the service and the ambiance would make us return again whenever we are in fort lauderdale. our dinner here was one of the best meals of our trip.

Recomend with a BUT.....
We've been to SoLita many times and usually really enjoyed our dining experience. This time was..... just ok. The portions seemed to have gotten smaller, my husband asked for his pasta without cheese, - came with cheese. When they brought it back, the portion was tiny (hello - it's pasta with arrabiata sauce - fill the bowl, it's a profit maker no matter how much pasta you put in the bowl - seemed like a 1/2 order for $18!!!). We hadn't been there in a few months - this time was just ok..... hopefully just an off night..

great all around place
We had great food, great service and nice ambience. We would definitely recommend it.

We had a great time. The food was delicious and the drinks were very flavorful. The crowd was nice and the staff were very attentive. They played a variety of good music although it was a bit loud for dinner. I frequent this restaurant and recommend it to all my associates.

Wow, ordered the Chicken Scarpariello and was surprised with an explosion of flavor. The food was complimented by a wonderfully modern look & feel to the restaurant as a whole

Behind the unassuming facade lies a large, nicely-decorated restaurant where diners can enjoy what I'll call "High Italian Cuisine."
In this brief review, I'll take a stand that nearly every item you will find on the menu will range from "very tasty" to "delicious". In the scale of 0-10, that would be 7.5 to 10. With our fairly good bread, we mopped up every drop of WHITE sauce below the spinach-cheese ravioli, leaving a totally clean serving dish. And I'm glad that my wife was too full to down the last morsel of baked cauliflower in cheese, 'cause that left it for me.
The only failure was the salad, which seemed to be topped with vinegar only (talk about pucker!).
You can buy parking by the hour in a lot behind the restaurant.

Staff friendly and helpful explaining all options you may be interested in. Berry Blast drink was delicious, and quickly became a favorite of the table. Mozzarella e Prosciutto and Meatballs were perfect!

nice las olas choice
As locals, we've tried the majority of restaurants along Las Olas many times, but this was our first foray into Solita. We enjoyed it. Not sure if some of the previous reviews I read concerning lack of service have been addressed by management or if we did better because we visited on a Sunday evening, when it was much quieter. But we experienced terrific, very friendly, attentive service, great food and a nice atmosphere sitting outside. We'll definitely be back.

All I can say is that this was BEST meal I have had this year!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
I am a resident and I try to avoid tourist hotspots, but since it was a Tuesday night and I heard good things we decided to try this place. What a gem!! The place is beautiful, the service was good, and the food was OUTSTANDING!!! Everything was delicious so we will be back, but on a Monday or Tuesday though when it's not crowded :-)
