We visited Sole Mare about 5 years ago and was not impressed. We decided to try it again and boy what a difference. The food was wonderful. The service is excellent and we were seated right away. The chicken parm is huge and delicious with homemade pasta as a side.The seafood special with clams, squid, calamari, mussels and Arubian lobster... More

Went here after a friend told me too go, arrived about 5 pm there was one couple in the place, basically empty and they asked if I had a reservation, I told them no and they said no problem, pretty rude I thought. Then the entrees were expensive, so I ordered chicken parmigiana, they said it comes with pasta, so... More

We come here when we come to Aruba because we love good Italian food, good wine, and good service. This place never fails. This last visit we had a diverse age group with us and NOBODY was disappointed. When you go you must try the Pasta prepared in a wheel of cheese flamed with Whiskey. It is an ample portion... More

For some dumb reason, I thought this was a seafood restaraunt. In all the years we have been to Aruba, we have never been to Sole Mare. Didn't have reservations, waited about 15 minutes. Service was good, food was delicious. NIce, elegeant and compared to Gianni's, quiet Restaraunt . Price is high but was worth it. Will go again on... More

Our appetizers and entrees were all excellent - from the veal dishes, as well as the sides. Their special pasta in the cheese wheel was awesome! The veal was the most tender I've experienced in years! And the flan was great. Could do with a more diverse wine list with more voices in the moderately priced range. The whole evening... More

So I tried to make a reservation online and never got a response. We went anyway and got a table at 815 pm. The service was pretty good, but the food was good, but not the great food so many reviews claim. The prices were too high for the flavor. There are plenty of better Italian restaurants on the island... More

Amazing Italian dishes on the island. We all loved our dishes. Definitely recommend anything with a red sauce. Veal Parmesan was tender and cooked perfectly. Cannoli dessert was good as well. Nice wine selection. One downfall was that it took awhile to get our check at the end. We waited about 20 minutes.

If not for our waiter, Rodell, this would be only rated one star because you don't have zero. When we arrived we were told our reservation was at 7:30 not 9pm. The concierge called so I really don't know who screwed that up. The woman at the front desk was not friendly at all. She was going on about it... More

It seems to me that this restaurant has been open all (or nearly all) of the years we've been visiting Aruba .. which is 22 years ... and yet it has taken until January 2017 for us to get to Sole Mare despite hearing many mentions over the years. Big mistake. Should have done it sooner! We loved it. When... More

I am giving this 3 stars we started coming back to this restaurant last year the reason we stopped was the service. we ordered the fomaggio wheel for 2 and was seated in a corner where they made the meal on other side of restaurant instead of in front of us or close by. We told them that's what we... More
