    They were doing some renovation in part of the restaurant but I'm sure it will be done by season. In any case there it was very nice on a aturday night.

    If a venue is going to close for a private event, then don't allow online reservations to be made for that day!!! Thankfully there were several delish restaurants within walking distance for us to choose from. I clicked 1 star b/c I couldn't submit otherwise.

    We live in Delray and dine out at least once per week. This was our 3rd visit to Solita for their weekly $9.95 eggplant stack special & 50% off bottled wine. We'd raved about Solita to our neighbors & brought them along. Solita is undergoing a major renovation & seating is limited during construction. We were greeted & seated immediately upon arrival. Due to the cramped quarters, it was unusually noisy because the bar is literally "in" the dining area. Our server was prompt, helpful & unobtrusive. Unfortunately, the usually-stellar eggplant was dry & almost burned. This diminished the overall quality of the dish. But we enjoyed good wine and a fun evening off the Avenue with friends. Hopefully, the "stack" will be better next time.

    We were surprised when we got to the restaurant to find they are downsizing into the smaller room and renovating the bigger room to be a more rustic restaurant. The menu was missing one of our favorites (rice balls) which they said will be on the menu on the other side once it opens. Small room was crowded and not the same ambience.

    Solita is in the middle of a major renovation and the restaurant was empty. We were informed after we order drinks that they did not have bread or fresh salad. If I would have known that before we ordered, we would have left and come back after their renovation. The food was good and the service was average, but what kind of italian restaurant doesn't have fresh bread or salad? I do not think I will be going back.

    We found the food as good as always, but our service was slow at the beginning. Our waiter explained that several of the wait staff had not come to work. He then proceeded to move things more efficiently and the service improved throughout the meal. It's one of our favorite restaurants and we'll surely return soon.

    We love SoLita. The food is wonderful and the servers are great. Unfortunately you never know whether the place will be packed or empty. Something in between would be nice. I have waited an hour for a reservation in season on a Saturday night, but this Saturday, you could have walked in without a reservation. Hope they make it until next season as it is one of my favorites.

    I have had the occasion of eating at this restaurant before and have had good dining experieces. The other night was basically the same except instead of enjoying the small bites and salad menu I opted for a veal chop. The flavors were good, but the chop was overcooked. If I had wanted a veal cutlet I would have ordered one. I requested another and told my server to order it to go. When I got home...same scenario. I was so looking forward to that "chop" and was most definitely willing to pay the price. Will not be ording that again which is a shame because the rest of the dining experience was good

    Dined on 5/16/2014
    The only thing keeping me from giving this hidden jewel 5 stars is the difficulty I had in making reservations. I called a few night ahead of time on. 10 occasions and was never able to talk with anyone. They called me back the next day. I had already booked it by then with Open Table. I started to just not go at all. When a restaurant is this good and half empty on Friday night, I would think they would work on their customer response. I had a special request and wanted to talk to a live person. No such luck. Great food, great service, but very difficult to get through on the phone. I will go back, but only if they answer the phone. 10 times through all the prompts on the phone to just go to voicemail is not acceptable

    I'm not totally familiar with the area but came here based on a recommendation. Noticed on Yelp that everyone was raving about the Eggplant Stack so I tried it. It was pretty damn tasty. I'm from New York City and generally feel like a food snob when I travel. This place is definitely worth it.

    I think the food at SoLita is as good as you will find at any Italian restaurant in South Florida. We were there on a Thursday night and the place was EMPTY. The food and the service were both great. On a previous Saturday night visit, we waited close to an hour with a reservation because they were so booked and the weather was bad for outdoor dining. Too bad they don't have a more steady business day to day. Can't go wrong with the eggplant stack, the rice ball, or the brussel sprouts.

    Great restaurant tucked back in Pineapple Grove, right off Atlantic ave. Eclectic and fun dining with some of the best food in Delray Beach. The tomato, eggplant stack is to die for!! The service is superior, bartenders very attentive and the GM is always at the hostess stand caring for his customers. Wine lists is exceptional. Menu is full of great entree's -- from chops and seafood to the best Italian around! Highly recommend !!!
