The restaurant was very empty on a weeknight. But the food was very good and portions were healthy. We had another meal at home with our leftovers.

The Ossobuco (when they have it), pumpkin squash ravioli and marsella ravioli are all amazing!! Hard to try new items on the menu because we can't wait to have our favorites.

Hidden gem!!! As a NYC Italian my standards are high. They exceeded all of my expectations. Food was incredible (pasta and seafood were fresh, ribeye was fantastic) and service was spot on. This will be our new go-to date place. No need to go into Minneapolis or St Paul for world-class Italian any longer.

Took forever to get a waitress, took forever to order, waitress only came when it was time to order or pay ... never checked on us and we had to ask for more water and drinks. Creme brûlée was disgusting. Tasted like a stick of butter!

Sole Mio has a nice atmosphere with dark surroundings. The music is too loud, but its appropriate...lots of Frank Sinatra. The waitresses are very good. The menu hasn't changed since I was there about 8-months ago, so that is lame. The martinis were decent. the Pizza apitizer is amazing, best pizza in MN. The entres are pretty good as well. The deserts and espresso are great.

If you go, get the pizza as an app...and get an espresso (so much creme) with desert. That is what they do best.

Birthday celebration. They were able to accommodate another person and gave us a large table that worked perfectly. Food was amazing. A bit pricey but no complaints. Rather pay premium prices for excellent food than mediocre at lower prices. Always enjoy my food at Sole Mio

The food was very good. It is a little pricey butt the quality and quantity of the meal justifies it IMHO. I The decor and layout of the restaurant itself looked better than i expected, being part of a strip-mall.

The acoustics were not very good. We actually mentioned that it would be difficult for people with hearing aids to hear the desired conversations well. The noise level in the booths along the perimeter are probably much better for noise and acoustics.

Really wanted to love this spot. Server had a nice start but failed to remember we were still waiting. Too much salt; too much seasoning for both dishes (scampi and chops).

We had a very good waiter who was doing double duty as the bartender. He was personable and served us well. Our table ordered calamari as a starter. I don’t like calamari and this dish did not change my mind. However, my table mates seemed to like it. I had a poached pear salad with a balsamic drizzle which was very good. The veal was highly recommended by our server as being perfectly cooked. I found it to be dry and chewy. My husband ordered a different veal dish which he did thought was tough as well. The accompanying pasta dish was good but nothing special. I felt the food for the most part was just okay. I did enjoy our server/bartender.

Service was slow and we seemed to be forgotten by our server for a time, but we were with friends, so we made the most of the time.
Had we been in more of a hurry, it would have been annoying. Food was great, though!

We went for the crab that was on their online menu. We were informed they only had that on Tuesday. The menu wasn’t the same in the restaurant. We thought it was an upscale restaurant but it turned out to be just another restaurant in a hotel.

We were fortunate enough to sit out on the patio, which was lovely. Our server was very knowledgeable and courteous. She helped us modify both the entree and dessert options to avoid dairy. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the Chef's Choice Chocolates for dessert.

Every time I go I am thoroughly impressed and enjoy my dinner... It’s also really nice that the chef comes out of the kitchen and talks to his gas one of the highlights of having dinner out at a very nice restaurant

Sole Mio never disappoints! Our food was delicious (and it is wonderfully consistent from visit to visit), the service was outstanding, and the pace of the meal was perfect. Everyone in our family has their favorites. To start, my husband had the calamari appetizer (lightly breaded so that you can still taste the squid and with the proper balance of lemon acid so that it does not taste "fishy"). One of the girls in the family started with the clam chowder (one of the soups-of-the-day, and always delicious) and the other had the poached pear balsamic salad. The poached pear salad was beautifully done, and it has a perfect combination of textures and flavors; it is a plate-sized salad of mixed greens and romaine lettuce with walnuts, Gorgonzola cheese and balsamic vinaigrette topped with pear poached in port wine and balsamic vinegar. Our one girl has been away for several months, so she indulged in the seafood cannelloni, and it was as rich and creamy and as irresistible as ever. She forced her boyfriend to order the marsala ravioli (chicken and three-cheese filled ravioli with sautéed chicken and portabella mushrooms in a creamy sweet Marsala sauce) so that she could steal some bites of it, and thankfully he loved it as well. I have too many favorites at this restaurant, so I went to my old standby of lasagna (the béchamel sauce makes it truly addictive). We were too stuffed to have dessert this visit, but we have had them in the past and enjoyed them very much. Our waitress was attentive, but not hovering. The service team ensured that we had sufficient bread and their special butter (my family has a tendency to devour it because it is SO good) and kept our water glasses filled. Sole Mio is my favorite restaurant, and we feel fortunate to have it in Woodbury!

My wife and I were on vacation and were looking for a nice restaurant for our last day in town. We came upon Sole Mio Ristorante and made an online reservation for Saturday night. The restaurant itself is very nicely decorated with a warm and classic feel. As soon as we arrived the staff was very friendly and informative about the specialties and options on the menu. My wife and I both had some special requests on the food preparation and they were more than happy to accommodate our requests. In fact, the chef, who owns the restaurant with his wife, came to our table to make sure the order was correct, then came to our table afterwards to see how we liked our meals. He was very friendly and we briefly shared some laughs and compared stories of our travels.

The meal itself was excellent! The ingredients were first rate, fresh and expertly prepared. My wife's steak and my Copper River salmon were perfect, as were the cooked but still crisp vegetables and handmade garlic mashed potatoes. Even the fresh baked bread and flavored butter were delicious. I would highly recommend Sole Mio and will definitely be back to try some of their other menu items the next time we are visiting.
