About the restaurant
Our story started on the beautiful coast of South Sicily and later transformed to another beautiful cost of Clearwater, Florida.
Chef Nello born and raised in Catania, Sicily and has wide experience with his restaurants in Italy.
Soul Sicilian Fusion is his first restaurant in USA.
Name SOUL mean that main ingredient in each dish is LOVE!
Fist opened in September of 2019 we decided that most important in our restaurant is high quality local produce, fresh fish, and Authentic Italian recipes.
Each wine is carefully chosen and displayed in our wine menu by the region it’s from!
We are happy to see you in our restaurant and want you to have best experience ever!

this restaurant was recommended by a server at another restaurant we go to often. He lives in Safety Harbor. the food was very good, and prices were very good. only disappointment was the glasses used for the wine. with excellent wine list and choices, the glasses are thick rimmed and not the best for a nice restaurant and classy place. Good server in Tim. Will visit again next time we are in town.

About the restaurant

Whether raising a glass among family and friends, enjoying a romantic date night or indulging in exceptional steaks, fresh Gulf seafood or Southern comfort food with a modern twist, you’ll find that time spent here is more delicious than ever.

New owners Rob Doyle and Mary Grasso along with Executive Chef Josh Needham are keeping some of the old menu favorites while introducing an eclectic mix of New American dishes served tapas-style.

We have been here numerous times over the the last year. We have not had a bad meal. Love love the bao buns short ribs and pork belly so good and tender. The ramen is so flavorful, the short rib udon and wagyu udon are delicious. The roasted shishito peppers are a great appetizer. The house saki is very smooth. Really have no complaints. The waitstaff is very attentive and nice. Happy hour is amazing too!! Try it out you won’t be disappointed.
