Summary - Owner to Me: "You should eat at McDonalds next time"...No Joke! I am a local guy that literally lives a couple footsteps from the Italian restaurant Cafe Solo 'Ristorante Italiano' di Angelo. I have lived in St. Augustine for 5 years and therefore been able to try a plethora of restaurants...seeing many last the duration of my time... More

Thank you for your review. Let's be fair and answer to you correctly keeping in mind that all our menus clearly and specifically mention our costs and the description of our dishes. 1) You mentioned that months ago you came to our restaurant and ordered eggplant parmigiana which you were unhappy with. Please read our menu, the way you received... More

We chose this restaurant by default*, but what a welcome find it was (* - Tropical Storm Hermine was threatening to batter St Augustine, so we’d decided to find somewhere really close to our accommodation). Another place had been recommended, but we decided to eat here after falling into conversation with the owner, a friendly chap, who was standing outside.... More

Thank you very much for your review. You are right, we do have Nero d'Avola, and Pinot Noir is a completely different wine. If you do have a chance to come back and enjoy your meal, we will be more than happy to serve that to you. We strive to offer and maintain a high service to our loyal clients... More

Went to Café Solo as part of a food and wine tour. Had never heard of the place prior to the event. Small restaurant, and rather warm, but the pasta dish that was served was absolutely amazing. Apparently the dish was an off-menu item, some type of caprice pasta with basil pesto and walnuts. We devoured the whole bowl!! Met... More

We found this great place at the end of a small row of restaurants. We started our search by the menu offered and prices posted as we walked the row. Once I saw gnocchi on the menu I was sold. This was the best gnocchi I have had since Europe! Will eat here again, next time I find myself in... More

The staff treated us like we were the only customers! Probably because we were the only customers. We sneaked in 15 minutes before closing and the staff just could not have been nicer. The hostess was charming and our server was very polite, although we kept them there after closing. My husband had pizza with pepperoni and chorizo. It was... More

Excellent food. We had just left the gift shop for the military hospital and wanted lunch. This place was right across the street. I had the Caprese salad, which was huge, my husband and daughter had the minestrone soup with corned beef sandwich and an antipasto sandwich. It's tucked away in a side street buy definitely worth it!!! We'll be... More

Best meal we had. Open late. Fair pricing. Had a great meal at 930 when other places were closed or closing. Veg ravioli. And chicken samboca. All well prepared. We were unrushed even at the late hour. Server was helpful, owner chef was friendly and inviting. Enjoyable meal quite location. Thank you.

Stopped here by chance, or fate if you believe in that! . The service was really good (thanks, Ryan!). I ordered the eggplant parmigiana (without the ham) and it was really good! The sauce was tasty. The eggplant was crispy! Yum! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because they were out of a wine on their... More

CAfe Solo is a must if you are in St. Augustine. The food is always fresh and delicious and Koryne and Angelo are friendly and treat you like family. By far one of the best for Italian in St. Augustine, coming from a second generation of Italian cooks in New York!
