    The food was mediocre. The Caesar salad was a bit watery and the Fettucini carbonara tasted more like fettucine alfredo with a few cubes of ham instead of pancetta. I had to ask for a bit more pancetta. The sauce was relatively flavorless. I can't recommend this restaurant.

    This visit was a little off. Usually my rating would be excellent across the board. Perhaps the staff were a little surprised by a large crowd on a Sunday evening. The service was slow. The muscles were over cooked. I still give Sole Mio a good recomendation because in all my visits there this is the first less than excellent experience.

    I've visited Sole Mio on several occasions in the past. The service and food provided on my most recent visit were, in a word, horrible. My order was simple - one order of manicotti. It took 48 minutes to get my order. It was THE worst manicotti I have ever eaten. Words cannot adequately describe the taste and texture of the food. One bite was all I could endure. The cheese, though hot, was hard and tasteless, as were the tomatoes which topped all this mess. Very odd. To top it all off, my server never inquired about my meal despite the fact that the majority of my order was left on the plate. With so many other options now available downtown, I'll not be wasting my money on the poor food and service now being provided here.

    I highly recommend Sole Mio! In addition to their traditional Italian fare, they have many unique entrees, salads, etc. They also make their own pasta. Also, service is superior! I also appreciate being able to valet park my car there when attending the symphony at the Schermerhorn. I have eaten there many times, and I plan to do so again very soon.

    I had eaten here probably 5 years ago and it was great. Things haven changed since then. Food was overly priced and not very flavorful. The volume of chatter was mild until a group of girls celebrating a party came in they were so loud we couldn't wait to leave . Should of saved my money and went somewhere else.

    Tried Sole Mio for the first time last week, my wife and I both enjoyed it. She had the filet and it was excellent, I had the braciola di maiale and it was very good, if slightly salty due to the brining. Only complaint I had was with the bland polenta that came with it. Wine list is a tad high, but not outlandish. The Symphony menu was a pretty good deal for my pork dish. Nice having the free valet there, and the service overall was quite good, especially given the fact that it was a very busy night in town when we were there. It's not Valentinos, but then it didn't cost $200 dollars for dinner either. I'd go back.

    The biggest disappointment I thought was the price point. $17 for pasta with sauce is a bit steep for something I could throw together at home. There seemed to be little for dinner that those who would chose a lighter fare unless I missed something. I thought there was not enough variety on the menu and nothing particularly intriguing. Please note that I come for a foodie background so that may be part of the issue!!

    Waiter said the lasagna was the best in the city. If that was best Nashville needs some real Italian restaurants. Carpaccio was not real raw filet and somewhat fatty. Cheese cake dessert tasted store bought. I've been spoiled by finest Italian restaurants all over U.S; this place not even close. Service was very good; only positive

    The new chef at Sole Mio is really bringing it! Saturday I enjoyed the halibut and scallop special and it was exceptional; one of the best meals I've had it quite a while. Finish that off with the homemade cheesecake (and this appeared and tasted like REAL cheesecake!) and you have an excellent dining experience.

    I've eaten at Sole Mio for years (followed you to the new location). Always ordered fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp except last time. I got the clam/sausage spaghetti. It was a mistake. The sausage covered up the subtle clams, was too salty, and dry without enough sauce. The mussels before and spumoni after were great but I will NEVER vary from my usual fare again if I come back. Disappointing. At those prices?

    Went for our anniversary, Friday at 7pm. Fresh warm bread when you sit down, great. Bruschetta appetizer was huge and really good. We had the filet and the pork chop. Both had great flavor, were cooked perfectly, and came out hot. Not much in the way of vegetables/sides with your entree...they were more for flavor and visual interest than actual "sides". I don't think there was any background music. Place was crowded though, with lots of lively conversation. I wouldn't say there was a lot of "ambiance"...maybe more on a quiet weeknight. Restaurant is mostly one large dining room, front wall is all windows looking out on street/outdoor seating. Server was nothing to write home about. App + 2 entrees + water to drink + tax = $70

    We meet friends for dinner on August 16. The guys raved about the gnocchi and me and my girlfriend were just as pleased with a salmon entree and pasta entree. The waiter was very personable, helpful and attentive. We were on a tight time frame and he took care of us without making us feel rushed. I even had a Groupon to use and we didn't get the cool shoulder you can sometimes get when a waiter or waitress thinks they won't get tipped as much. We asked a favor from the manager and he was very nice and accommodating too! The only thing that I can think of that wasn't positive.....I think the bottles of wine are a little on the pricey side. We've eaten at Sole Mio several times and it remains consistent with great food and service!

    We booked reservations the day of through the Marriott Renassiance. We had a party of 9 girls for a bachelorette party. We heard great things about the food. Once we got there, we didn't wait long to be helped. The server was very nice although not extremely attentive. Our food came out very quickly and was tasty! However, we were placed in one of two rooms and were the only party in that room. Additionally, there wasn't any music or background noise so it was very quiet when we were all eating. I thought the prices were a bit high as well for the food/service we received.

    Simply the best place to dine prior to the Nashville 4th of July fireworks show. You get vallet parking at a quaint Italian restaurant that is well decorated with good food and great service. You can eat on the porch and watch the fireworks from your table while eating desert and leave in time to miss the traffic bog as you are just a few blocks from the interstate. It is our families yearly tradition which will continue for years to come.

    Actually chose Sole Mio because we could valet park at the restaurant, have dinner, then take in the fireworks and downtown activities and return to the restaurant to retrieve our vehicle afterward. Third Avenue location very convenient to Broadway and Market St. The four of us enjoyed the bruchetta and calamari appetizers before our main courses. Like Sole Mio's idea for choosing either their listed main courses, or pairing your choice of pasta, sauce and meat accompaniment. The wine list is not overly extensive, and the least expensive glass is $9. The delicious chocolate cake dessert ($9) was sufficient to sate the sugar crave for the four of us. James did a knowledgeable job of serving us without us without being intrusive.

    Not sure why they left their last location, with a beautiful view overlooking the city--I'm aware I don't know the details behind that so I can't hold that against them :). I am someone who really doesn't mind paying top dollar (on occasion) for great food. However, my pet peeve is expensive food for the sake of being expensive. Bottom line is, the food was OK but not worth the price. Server meant well but was simply not very attentive. We might go back, but not before trying others restaurants for a while.
