Dressed in Italian Baroque, Solorzano's delights the eye and the palette. An enclave dinning area that could have easily been the Anti Room for Di Lorenzi and the Dapper Don, festooned in pillars, mirrored bar and Jersey-born icons (sic, Sinatra, etc.) and "eponymous familia," Solorzano's boasts down-home Italian favorites with precision and care and the flavors of mama's kitchen.

We didn't have reservations but we were sat asap. Our server Oscar was a great server. We had apps and then our main meals were super. Very nicely decorated and makes you feel like you were set back in time in a Italian restaurant. Crystal goblets on the table made it.

Stopped by to try Lunch, had one slice then another. Loved it so much I'm here for pizza again for dinner. I asked for extra zingy sauce and they added a second scoop. Yum! Thanks to the guys at Solorzano's. As arnold would say, " I'LL B BACK!"

Watch out exactly where you are going, since there are a few Solorzano's in Sarasota, one very close to this one. This review is for the one at 6516 Superior - we were waiting for one party who was waiting for us at the other location! Decor is extremely cozy and slightly over the top, but it makes for a...

My girlfriend and I went for dinner at Solorzano's this evening on a recommendation from her mother. Let me just start by saying that I am an avid fan of Italian food and this was hands down the best chicken parmigiana that I have EVER had. The place is small, but very intimate. A perfect spot for a meal with... More

First time here. Our food was good (4 stars), just needed a little salt is all. The people were very nice. It's nice when the restaurant owner is walking around asking how your food is. They seem to care. It's also nice to see what are obviously regulars at a restaurant, of which they have many (return customers). We only... More

6516 Superior Ave.is a great dinner destination. We knew we came to the right place for Saturday night pizza when we received a great greeting from the guys at the Solorzanos counter. The salads came out cold and crisp with a terrific balsamic dressing. Pizzas have a thin crust and just the right toppings. Thanks to Kenny and Brandon for... More

Hubby and I went to Solorzano's Italian Restaurant for dinner on a Saturday evening. We had reservations which was good since there was only one open table. (This is a small intimate dining room with 9 tables.) We love Solorzano's pizza and found out that the sons have the pizza places and the parents have the Italian Restaurant. We were... More

We booked a table here, having no idea what to expect. We were in for a real treat. We both had delicious salads followed by the specials which were unbelievably good (we were oohing and aahing with every mouthful) and a bottle of the most amazing Chianti Classico Reserva. One of the best my wine buff husband had ever had.... More
