    Wonderful --- Chef Angelo is the best at developing dishes that are not found in other venues. Had a great Pork Chop dish the other night - hopefully that makes it to the menu

    The restaurant has a warm, inviting atmosphere, service was very good. Overall the food was very good, ravioli in marsala sauce was excellent and seafood cannelloni was pretty good. Prices were reasonable and we'll definitely return. A very nice "non-chain" option in Woodbury.

    The restaurant looks nice, the ambiance was nice. But we had to ask for the bread to be brought to our table long after we had ordered. They only had three salad dressing choices for the regular dinner salad. Our entrees we good, but service was below average. Overall it was just average, and the service wasn't very good. She was not very attentive, see above bread comment.

    This was my first visit to Sole Mio. I had a steak and garlic mashed potatoes (the only potato choice that night), based on the recommendation of my server. While the steak was tender and had some flavor, the strong flavor of the potatoes overpowered the steak. The house salad looked skimpy because of the presentation, but the size was fine. The italian dressing was mostly oil. The bread was mostly crust & the spread that accompanied it was an orange color, but tasted like plain butter. Not a bad meal, but not as great as I had hoped it would be. However, the service was excellent - prompt, courteous and attentive. I'd probably go again to try something else. Not bad enough to skip in the future, but not great enough to rush back.

    Fantastic food. Both chef and server had great attention to detail. Menu had traditional favorites as well as unique and interesting offerings. The topper was when the chef / owner visited the dining room after we had eaten and had a nice conversation with my whole family. We'll be back - soon!

    I work in the area and this place is a little known place with great service and good food. Couldn't say great yet as I've only tried one dish but will certainly come back. I was impressed on the knowledge of the wait staff of the menu and gave us great suggestions based on what we were looking for. Overall a great dining experience and recommended even for business lunches.

    This was the first time my wife and I visited Sole Mio and it was a great experience. The atmosphere is more to the upscale with booths and tables available. Our server was great, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. We had Spaghetti Al Pomodoro and Chicken Marsala both were delicious. We would highly recommend it.

    Sorry, This food was aweful. We had 5 entree's at our table and as an Italian-American "foodie"...this was bland & terrible. Too much oil on one....little sauce on another....and no flavor on another. Seriously....the hype about the Chef from Siciliy got us in there....but the food was lame.

    We both had steaks and they tasted great. One of my medallions was a little over cooked, but Chef came out and said he was making a new one for me. I said I only needed the one as my other one was great. I was given both, so I had wonderful leftovers. Dessert and coffee was so good. Our server was very good and checked on us often to make sure all was well, but not so often that we thought she was there to much. We were there a little later in the evening so the noise level was low.

    We had a wonderful dinner. My wife's cioppino and my fettuccine bolognese were both excellent. The exterior of this restaurant is ordinary but the interior is beautiful. This is a family owned business with a real chef. We have eaten here multiple times, and are always greeted as friends. Highly recommended. .

    Great food most the time. We had some trouble with a steak being overdone, but they recooked it and the owner chef brought it out and apologized for the mistake. We have tried different pasta dishes and they are excellent. The Bruschetta is the best I've eaten anywhere. We have eaten Sunday Brunch here several times and we really like it.

    We had to take a couple out for a meeting so when making reservations I asked for a more quiet table. They delivered on that and the food was excellent as well! Their wine list was good, although not everything could be ordered by the glass; that said the server was very knowledgeable and recommended a great wine. We will be back!

    My elderly father had recently been prescribed dentures. They were very accommodating to his needs. They provided suggestions and altered his meal to accommodate his needs. Sole Mio went above and beyond satisfying and exceeded his needs. The chief personally came out and ask my father if his needs were met.

    I was a little skeptical going to an Italian restaurant in an old strip mall but once inside all of that is gone. The dining area is nicely done and the service was great. There are some interesting options on the menu. I had the tenderloin medallions and they were as good as I have had anywhere. The soups were very good and the pear salad was excellent. I tried my daughters spinach gnocchi which was excellent as well. The wine list if full of good selections without being overloaded. We had a very nice Barolo. We will certainly go again.

The Italian fare on the menu is authentic and the other "American" food items are exceptional. Have been to Sunday Brunch and for dinner. Highly recommend Sole Mio.

    I would not ever go here for Italian again. I would prefer buca di beppo or even olive garden. The food is very tastless and very overpriced. It is pretty diffiult to mess up chicken alfredo and neither of my family members would ever order it again. The chicken was tatseless and the sauce very thin. I had the filet oscar and I would not order that again either. The asparagus and steak were ok, but the lumpcrab calw meat was rubbery and tasteless. . My son had to eat his meal alone after we were nearly finished with ours because they forgot to put the chicken in his chicken alfredo. Also do not waste your money on the tiramisu, extremely dissatisfied with the flavor and portion size for the price we paid!!!!
