Diner Reviews
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Solo. The waiter was friendly and very attentive. It was a birthday dinner and we were seated right away. We were immediately given a warm bread basket with an assortment of great breads. Our appetizer, buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto was generous enough for two, the calamari was crisp and the sauce tasty. The dinners had a generous portion more than enough to take home to enjoy the next day. We did not have dessert, lemon pound cake was waiting at home. Overall, this was a pleasant experience. We would go again."

  • "We had'nt been to this place for a couple of years. Gave them another chance. Waited half hour for our table with a reservation (strike one). The maitre'd (owner) was apologetic. The menu was short on choices, and there were only a couple of specials. None sounded appealing enough (strike two), so ordering off the menu I had the marinated skirt steak which has some greens and dressing on top. The waiter realized I needed a steak knife, but never bothered to get me one so I wrestled with the steak with the butter knife and finally gave up halfway through (STRIKE THREE). Now I remember why we hadnt been back for so long. They will not be seeing us there again. Dont bother with this place. There are plenty of better restaurants in the area."

  • "What was advertised as tuna chunks on the menu seemed more like shredded canned tuna. We have dined at Solo several times in the past and I think they are starting to skimp on quality a bit."

  • "Attractive restaurant, convenient to theatre. The service was pleasant enough. The pasta dishes were okay, the pork medallions were to be stuffed, only one was and they were tough and overcooked. The caesar salad was very bland and one of the diners told the staff that it was tasteless yet no one seemed to care. The bill was pricey for mediocre food. I would not recommend this restaurant. The food was served so quickly that you questioned whether it had been precooked."

  • "Recently dined here with a friend based on a recommendation. Food was excellent. Low key atmosphere with a small house wine list and BYOB option. A great local place for authentic Italian cuisine."

  • "I have been at the spot many times and it always reliable. The food is good and the place is big so you can usually get a last minute table on a Saturday night. The service is uneven though. Our waiter started off great but disappeared way too many times. Good thing we were not in a rush."

  • "We go to Solo frequently and have never had a bad meal. Their Veal Milanese is the best I've had. It is so large, I have the leftovers for two days after. Their steak special is served on a cutting board - and it is always cooked to perfection. The staff are friendly and the owner always stops by your table to see how everything is going. I definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "We had a November anniversary gathering at Solo Trattoria with 6 of us. We ordered up 3 appetizers (fried calamari, fried veal meatballs & sauted clams & mussels). The meatballs and the clam/mussel combo were very good but the calamari was bland and a small portion. For main course, 2 of us had farfalle & seafood. This was a very tasty andp erfectly cooked meal. Two others had eggplant entrees which were pretty good. One morehad th eir award winning rigatoni bolonese and said it was super. The last entree was a pasta dish with chicken and spinach and it was stated to be lacking taste. Deserts were small & not special, except for the $7.00 price. Service was a little slow & we had to remind our waiter for things we requested."

  • "A local place I can count on for excellent food. Giorgio, the owner and host, is a heckuva nice guy and makes sure everything is just right. The food is CONSISTANTLY great, in a small, local flavored spot that is BYOB. Good food value as well~"

  • "What a nice lunch experience. Great soup, homemade pasta with sausage, and a very fresh salad (added for an extra $2). A solid 4 stars on the food, and a great value for money. As others have said, they are now selling wines, but one can still bring a bottle (as I did with beer)."

  • "Our meals were fantastic. The only thing that was missing was Italian cheesecake on the dessert menu."
