They really need to 'up' their game. We were there on a Thursday night and we were the one of two tables in the whole place, the entire time we were there (makes me wonder). I'm a stickler for fresh warm bread and good coffee but...when they brought it, the bread was cold and not fresh at all, ditto on the coffee. Food was good, but I thought way overpriced. Unfortunately, the only place to park is $20, which is not really their fault but another detail that will keep me from going back. We've been to Sole Mio years ago and enjoyed it, but now it feels like "this is the way we've always done it, take it or leave it." With all the new restaurants in the area now and all the choices in Nashville, they may find that people will leave it unless they reinvent some, and offer some improvement on the little things.

Sole Mio has been around for a number of years. It is in the heart of downtown and serves high-end traditional Italian fare. Both entrees were good although the spinach manicotti was a little dry and maybe too heavy on the spinach. My pesto veggie pasta was excellent. The citrus salad is worth trying too. Wine by the glass is somewhat limited but we both enjoyed the Riesling. Good pre-show dining spot but you'll pay the downtown price for parking. Still, a good choice.

Our food was very good (chicken parmesan and lasagna), but the service was extremely slow - over an hour to get our entrees. We were told by another nice server (who noticed that we'd waited a long time) that our server had been pulled away for a private party, and she put in our drink refill orders (instead of our server, who was MIA). After he took our orders and brought bread, we didn't see him again until he brought our entrees after the extensive wait. Others who came in after us had their food before us. Our server didn't bother to apologize for (or even notify us about) the food taking longer than usual or that he was going to be pulled away. I doubt we'll go back, at least not if we don't have a full 2 hours to spare. It's important to note that the other server we encountered seemed excellent, so as usual, the results depend on the full circumstances associated with the visit. If we'd had her as our server, this review likely would have been positive.

Our waitress was outstanding! Great drinks and reasonably priced wine. Some of the best fettuccini we had all ever tasted. My husbands Veal Saltimbocca was fabulous. My filet had a wonderful taste but the meat was stringy for that cut of meat. Our friend loved the salmon that he had. The complimentary house bread and oil for the table is truly the only thing that definitely needs work. Yes, we will definitely go back. I have been thinking about that pasta since!

If you can get past the dated décor and ambiance, we would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nicer Italian dinner. Home made pasta and sauces...good wine list...attentive service. This place exceeded our expectation.

I feel badly for the restaurant because they are now sandwiched between a hotel and another new building going up.
We made a reservation, but there were no other customers when we arrived at 4:30. The atmosphere was rather drab. The restaurant is in need of renovations/updating. The food was very good. I had a special Putanesca salmon dish. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. I heard a rumor that they are closing soon. I hope this isn't true :-(

Was seated 45 mins after reservation, hostess kept telling us just a few more minutes, essentially keeping us there. Server was unfriendly and not helpful. Pasty/stale bread was brought to the table after we were seated for 20 minutes. Food was not well presented and not well prepared. The worst food I have ever over paid for. Would not recommend this place.

Don't overlook this super quaint, 30 year + old establishment like I almost did! Food is authentic, environment is cozy and service is top notch! I had a simple chicken parmesan plate that was piping hot and tasty. My boyfriend had the lobster ravioli that too was wonderful! You won't be disappointed.

Sole Mio used to be excellent. Went for Valentines Day. Waited over an hour for the bruschetta. Finally around the end of the second hour the steaks that we ordered medium rare came out beyond well done. The owner came out, took both of our plates and returned with ONE steak. When I told him we sent both steaks back because they were bad he basically called me a liar, that I only told him one steak. In my 40 Years, I have never had such a horrific experience at any restaurant.

I have been going to Sole Mio for many years. It is extremely convenient for dinner before the symphony and at one time they had a set pre-concert meal which allowed excellent food and timely exit to the event. At one time, the also had valet parking by which they would keep your car until after the event. Several years ago the family ownership changed and things began going down some, including losing their long time servers. The food, however, continued good and it was convenient as always.

I read in the internet that another ownership change was resulting in Sole Mio closing and I was surprised to find it still open. Upon inquiring of our server, I was told that the new owner, Gino's Pizza, has kept them open until Gino's could obtain the correct occupancy license, but that they would finally be closing at the end of May.

I am very sorry to see such a Nashville staple leave. Not sure of the Gino's menu, but it certainly will not be able to replace Sole Mio.

This was my last visit. Very disappointing. The veggies and potato were good, but the main courses were lackluster. It took 45 minutes to get them in the first place, and it took another 20 minutes to get the replacement for my Inedible entree. The waitstaff (all of them) seemed clueless, approaching several tables with the food they were carrying until someone would claim them as their own. The tables were crowded together to the point where we felt we were intruding on the adjacent table’s conversation simply by sitting at ours. That frustration was compounded by the fact that an entire section of the restaurant was closed off and not in use. I felt like I received fast food service and quality for a whopping $170 (for two people). I feel robbed. It is time for the owner to sell this valuable property so he can pay me back.

I accept that it was Valentine's Day dining, and the only option was a limited set menu of 4 courses. The entrée we both ordered was Rib Eye, and it was certainly not that. The meat was hard to cut, chewy and tasteless. My wife had to send hers back when it arrived cold, only to find the replacement whilst warmer, was the same poor cut of meat. For $65 per person plus 20% gratuity to be added, it turned out to be an expensive dining experience , sadly lacking in quality of food.

Valentine dinner at Sole Mio was perfect the special menu contained several menu options we settled for veal and salmon dishes. Appetizer was a crab cake very good and salad to follow fresh and tasty. Main courses were accompanied by a variety of vegetables bread and olive oil so good. Dessert cannoli and the best tiramisu ever. My white wine was so good. Service was excellent Sole Mio will be missed.

Enjoy this unique authentic Italian food while it is still open! Unfortunately, they are changing hands after 20+ years. The food is hand made and the rotating menu with its daily specials are authentic and expertly prepared. The regular pasta dishes are awesome and can be customized to your liking! Enjoy this while you can!

I would not recommend Sole Mio unless, like us, you wanted to go out to dinner in the downtown area of Nashville and your other options are limited or nonexistent. The food was WAY overpriced for what we got and we just ordered pasta. For the meat entrees, you're far better off going just about anywhere else where you will get food that is at least as good for a much better price.

Started with a Markers Mark Manhattan. Wine with meal. Authentic Italian cuisine. Wild caught pan seared Pacific salmon with Italian topping. Pasta with pesto made in house. Steamed clams. Tiramisu made in house. Coffee fresh brewed. John was our waiter. Enough attention. But not too much. A pleasurable experience. Wanted a nice quiet evening with delicious Italian food. Perfect!

New Years Eve fixed menu for 75 pp. I was okay with price however they ran out of a majority of the food they did not tell you they were substiduting until your meal came. This was waiting for our food for over an hour. Asked to speak to the manager and when she came she a acted annoyed and said she was sorry and walked away. Come to find out her name Terry Zibatito was the general manager as well. DO NOT ENTER awful awful place.

New Years Eve dinner before concert. Only complaint was that they had a special menu for NYE that did not allow us to order from their normal menu. This was not obvious on their website. It was therefore more expensive than we expected ($75 per person flat rate). Luckily, the food was excellent and we found it was worth it.

I’d mention that we weren’t the only ones surprised by the special menu. Each couple that came in and sat at tables near us also were surprised and you could see their reactions when they saw the menu. Like I said, we were ok with it ONLY because the food was very good. My wife can be particular about her meals, and luckily she really enjoyed the menu selection.
