Solare Ristorante Lounge
I had the gnocchi in a tomatoI had the gnocchi in a tomato and basil sauce. The noodles were light as was the sauce. My wife had the sea bass, which was cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive and had a good sense of humor. The wine list is very extensive with a selection of both Italian and California wines.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mealLove the decor. We went with friends. We had the whole roasted Sea Bass, pork osso bucco, pizza, Frittura de pesche and arrancinni. Everything was great. Rinaldo and Petra were warm and welcoming and accommodating. The chef even came out and talked to us on a busy Friday night. Great meal. Can't wait to go back.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLittle too noisyFood ok. Little on the pricey side. Wait staff was far too interested in the "important" table next to ours. At one time no less than six people were waiting on the four at the table. Caused us to constantly have to move to let them in and out of the area between the table. Very distracting. Servers were good and knowledgeable. Seated next to the bar and the noise was way to load at times.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBIRTHDAYWE HAD SO MUCH FUN. WE WERE A GROUP OF 5 LADIES CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY. IT WAS MY 3RD. VISIT TO THE RESTAURANT. MY FRIENDS LOVED IT.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian Food!I dine at Solare every six months or so and the food is always outstanding. Great flavors, good portion sizes and affordable prices. I really like the decor and it has a comfortable atmosphere. Always plenty of parking and it's easy to get to. I highly recommend a visit!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, once again!I love this restaurant! The food is fantastic and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I especially like that the menu changes regularly - each time I visit I try something different and am impressed every time.
They also hold special events on a weekly basis - on this particular night there was a jazz band playing in the bar area. It was great to be able to hang out at the bar after dinner to listen to the band and enjoy a few drinks.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good Italian FoodEverything was very nice. Only wish they had more selections of CA wines!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful meal!This was our third visit to the restaurant. It was a wonderful meal, the eggplant parma was very good, as was the lasagne. We shared tiramasu for dessert and a nice bottle of wine. We will be returning!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA findVery good food, a varied and interesting menu, attentive service and an attractive setting waiting to be discovered in Point Loma.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWell doneNot the best view around, but Solare has the rest of the elements down pretty well. We really appreciated the lengthy traditional Italian menu and vast wine selection. Good food and outstanding service. This was definitely an Open Table keeper for us. We'll be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchThis was our second visit and the holiday was busy. It was a little more crowded than last time, so things moved a bit slower. The food was very good and the atmosphere was appropriate for Mother's day. We will return, maybe for a lunch this time to see the difference between that and dinner. Our first visit there was dinner and it was quieter and the ambiance was more relaxed and enjoyable. It was definitely a "fine dining" experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service!We went for the first time for Mother's day brunch. The food was excellent, the service was personalized, and the ambiance was really cool!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFifth time I have enjoyedFifth time I have enjoyed myself at Solare - many more to come5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNew life to SolareReally enjoyed the new menu. Will miss the previous owners Roberta and Stephano but the new owners and some new staff seem great. Had a great meal.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my third time havingThis was my third time having dinner at Solare and each time the service has been fantastic! My favorite dish so far is the black truffle risotto with scallops and leeks. The pizzas are also great. The happy hour tapas and drinks are worth the drive through Point Loma during rush hour. My only criticism is that the outdoor furniture is not too comfortable. Overall a great choice for a date, small group or girls night.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!Good food, service, ambiance. Did not feel rushed, and also had amazing jazz music in the background.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWell deserves 5 star. ThisWell deserves 5 star.
