Cute neighborhood-style restaurant. They have a surprisingly large menu for a somewhat small venue. There is a great selection of fresh pasta. All of our meals were excellent.

We are new to the area, and we stumbled upon Sole. What a great find. We sat on the sidewalk patio and enjoyed a great dining experience. The food was excellent, as was the service. They also pour some excellent wines. We can't wait to...More
