Second time there - forget the scary looking non-distinguished strip mall outside. What is inside is great. Delicious food and ambiance. Try the ribeye with au poivre (sp?) or the filet. We also liked the burrata caprese to start - the table devoured it.

We had the Rabbit and the filet. Everything was fantastic, the wine, the salad, the food, the service, the creme brulee. If you are close to St.Pete's beach, ya gotta try it.

Sola is a casual bistro-style restaurant with an eclectic menu featuring specials influenced by world cuisines, and of course, our own Armenian and Russian roots. While the menu has a great selection of Mediterranean dishes, we love experimenting with unique ingredients, and fuse different techniques and preparations with the best products we can acquire. Similarly, the wines we offer are carefully selected from the world over to compliment our wide range of internationally inspired dishes. Located on St Pete Beach, FL, we feature the best seafood around, source very high quality meats and poultry, and make as much as possible in-house, thus cutting out the unnecessary preservatives and chemicals. We strive to create and serve only the freshest food and the best wines, at very reasonable price, in a comfortable, relaxed bistro-style atmosphere.
