Diner Reviews
  • "We have eaten here many times and never had a bad experience. The food has always been consistently very good. The seafood cannelloni remains my favorite entrée. The specials are always worth considering and normally worth choosing over the regular menu. Chef Angelo likes to visit with the diners to see how they are enjoying the food. It feels very welcoming when he remembers us on our visits. The only negative is that when the restaurant is busy, the noise level from all the diners can make it difficult to carry on a conversation at your table."

  • "My husband and his two sisters, brother and wife get together for dinner four times a year. Last time in February 2013 my husband and I had our turn to pick the restAurant. We had selected restaurant other than yours but thought Sole Mio was the one we had selected under a different name. When we all met there we decided to just stay as none of us had been there yet. We were all Wowed by the food and service. We chose Sole Mio for 2014 and were glad we did. Thanks for great Italian food."

  • "We have eaten at Sole Mio three times. The food is delicious and the service is perfect. She offered suggestions, was there when we needed her and left us to our conversation when needed. Very professional, efficient, all items ordered were correct. She always had a smile. The chef even came around to the tables and talked to us for a few minutes. I can't wait to eat my leftovers! Then go back again for more ..."

  • "It has a boring chain-restaurant like ambience. The calamari was so chewy we couldn't finish it. The pear salad was really good. Pasta average."

  • "I love this place! It has great ambience, great service and attention to detail. I've never been disappointed in any of my food selections, its fabulous and that includes the apps and dessert. Wide variety of wines as well. I will continue to be a repeat customer for any and all occasions for a fine dinning experience."

  • "If your tired of the same restaurant chain food give Sole Mio a try. It is located in Woodbury in a strip mall however, its food is delicious. I enjoyed our apps. of Shrimp and Margarita Pizza very delicious. I had the pear salad that was wonderful. Our group ordered the pork special, chicken marsala (cream and wine sauce), walleye and the boulonnaise over noodles and everyone enjoyed their meals. The desserts are cheap but we were so full we didn't try any. You won't be disappointed if you go. The only down side is their booths run small so if you are big ask for a table."

  • "I was surprised that they had no pasta in Scampi sauce although they had it for a Shrimp appetizer: I asked to have my Pasta done in Scampi Sauce and was denied. The alternative was good but it was not what I wanted."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We chose this restaurant to celebrate our Mother's birthday. The cocktails, appetizers & entrée's were great. The dinner salad could have been a little more exciting, but that would be the only disappointment of the whole experience. Meeting Chef Angelo was definitely a high point."

  • "We have dined here several times, and each time found everything to be outstanding."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We were looking for a place to get really good seafood. My friend and I went to have a girls date night, and she was going to have the special but they were out of scallops. I don' think you should make something a special if you don't have enough to last you all night. At least tell your waitstaff so she doesn't recite the whole dish and then 5 mins after we order she comes back to tell us it was out. The chef could've avoided disappointing a first time customer. The server suggested something similar. It was actually pretty good. My meal was also good. Wine was great. Service was meh, the waitress over stayed her welcome often. I was trying to have a nice night with my friend not with the waitstaff. She only forgot to bring bread once."

  • "Love this place! Got my favorite waitress, Erin. We were seated by the fireplace which was nice as it was a cold night. My husband and I had great Chilean Sea Bass with a lovely sauce. My parents loved their meals and the ambiance. Being senior citizens they are fussy about restaurants that are comfortable, not too noisy, and good food. We've taken my parents here a few times now and they are always delighted with the whole experience. The seafood options are fantastic!"

  • "Went there for dinner and they seated us right away (we had reservations). People were very friendly and attentive. Food was AMAZING. Lots of authentic dishes to choose from. Next day I suggested to my wife, Lucia, to take her parents for brunch and they LOVED it. Lots to choose from and again she said food was delicious. Thanks for a great experience. We will be back again for sure."

  • "We tried Sole Mio because we live in Woodbury and have seen it a number of times, always wanting to try it. It hasn't been around for a long time, but it brings a bit of life to the quiet strip mall off of Valley Creek Dr. The true gem here is the food. They had a delightful butter that came with the bread, and I don't know if it was tomato or peppers, but it was delicious. We had bruschetta to start, and it was a small-ish portion, but adequate. If it had been any larger, I wouldn't have had room for the star of the evening- crab ravioli. This was, hands down, the most delicious food I have ever eaten. Not fishy, just creamy and delightful. Again, it was a smaller portion, but I was stuffed at the end of the meal. Bravo, grazie!"

  • "Way too loud. Bad service. Always have to ask for refill. Food took over an hour to get. Horrible Caesar salad. Pasta was great, shrimp scampi was amazing."

  • "Me and my fiancé went for valentines day.. I got a gift certificate from there to use so that's why we chose, I also looked online and heard the cook was amazing. But I wouldn't call it that. I wasn't impressed and neither was my fiancé. His steak took over 45 mins to cook, not sure if that's because that was their special for he night or what. I got ravioli, it was okay. I was hoping moor more pasta choices since it's an Italian restaurant. The waitress didn't really check up on us and it wasn't that busy. I am also a waitress so I sometimes can be to critically. The ambience was great. Had a great wine menu. But I would of chosen a different place to go to. I wouldn't go back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I found your placeon the internet looking for a new place for valentines day. Have never been there, nor even heard of it so i took a chance and booked it there. When we pulled up i wasn't exactly sure what i had gotten myself into bieng it is in a strip mall. But i was very pleasantly suprised once we went inside. The ambience was very good, the server was very nice and helpful, and the food was excellent. Will definately be going back in the near future and will be telling our friends about it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed a Valentine's dinner at Sole Mio and it was a great experience. I liked that they offered both a special Valentine's menu and their regular menu. Being that we don't drink and weren't necessarily saving room for dessert, the regular menu suited our taste better. The food was delicious and hot and the service was excellent. I would say we started to feel a tiny bit rushed toward the end as I know they had tables triple booked (the server dropped that hint) but overall it was a fine evening. The bread and butter served prior to the meal was good although I thought the bread was a little plain. The entrees were delicious. The side salad was "regular" - nothing special but good. Overall a great evening and we'll be back!"

  • "We chose this for our Valentine's night out and were not disappointed. Great food, lovely ambience, amst most importantly we did not feel rushed through our dinner."

  • "I've heard of Sole Mio and have read multiple reviews that I generally take with a grain of salt, so I thought I'd give it a shot. We had a simply wonderful experience. The food is excellent and the servers are not only knowledgeable, but do obviously care about the guest. Having read previous OT reviews, I was curious about wine pricing and pours. Their list is very solid with what I see as great value. The glass is a nice 16 oz goblet and they pour 6-7 oz. So when I see other reviewers talk about $10 for a glass that is "not even half full", as an experienced diner, I take exception. Most of their wines by the glass would be $1-$4 more expensive at other Woodbury restaurants or downtown. Keep doing what your doing Sole Mio! I'm in!"

  • "I was not expecting this. A family style restaurant in a strip mall. My wife and I are both foodies and upon walking in we were afraid that we were in for "Chef Boyardee" quality. But we were very impressed with food quality and there are a few worthy Italian wines on the list as well! So we called this a WIN! There is nothing romantic or classy here. Kids are prevalent and you sit in a large room with many tables and no linen. But the food is worthwhile even for foodies. This restaurant is tough to rate. Great food, good wine list, but the atmosphere is between Old Country Buffet and Olive Garden. Want great Italian food? Go here and check it out for yourself. You will be very surprised! The staff and chef are very friendly! We'll go back!"

  • "Being from the East Coast, I really value good Italian food. It's hard to find a decent Italian restaurant in the Twin Cities. O Sole Mio did not disappoint. Tasty dishes and good service. The chicken Marsala was delicious. My daughters had pizzas - very good. We also ordered chicken parmesan. All really good! My only complaint is that I believe $10.00 for a very small glass of red wine seems a bit steep."

  • "All four of our meals were very good. I was pleasantly surprised that they didn't skimp on the fish in the seafood cannelloni and had enough for two meals."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "I had heard that Sole Mio was a nice place to dine with good food. So when I was trying to think of a restaurant to go that was close to home, I decided to give it a try. I made reservations for 7:15. We were a few minutes late but they had a table ready for us right by the fireplace in under ten minutes. Our server was very proficient and great at making suggestions. The food came in a reasonable amount of time and it was fantastic! We were there celebrating my boyfriend birthday and the waitress offered to take our picture in front of the fireplace. Everything was wonderful. It isn't very often that we truly enjoy every part of our dining experiences. Do you be able to say we loved it and we will go back is quite a surprise for us!"

  • "This was my third time dining at Sole Mio and it was better than ever. The food was excellent and the mood was lively, although not so loud that we couldn't hear each other talk. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food - I will definitely be going back."

Server was very courteous and attentive. The restaurant has a very attractive bar area with good service, so come early for a cocktail. They have a very good selection of wines. The dining area has a beautiful decor and ambience. By far the best Italian restaurant in the Woodbury area!"
