Sole is a very small local Italian restaurant that seats about 30 people inside and about 12 outside under their heat lamps. It has kind of a straight forward, no non-sense vibe putting the emphasis on the food rather than the decor although it is...More

We walked into the restaurant after a difficult day, and had to wait. It was Saturday night and the restaurant is small ... what did we expect? Once we were seated, we got the sun-dried tomato spread with the bread, and OH MY GOODNESS. The...More

Both my cannelloni and dessert was first rate. Pasta was fresh and not out of box. Service was more than adequate although we were only a few guests on our visit. A bit pricey though. Quiet and charming restaurant.

The pasta is great and the desert is taste! It is a busy and small restaurant, reservation is highly recommended! Service is nice! My friend and I have a great time on a Friday night get together dinning. I will go back for sure.

I always order the ravioli in a cream walnut sauce (one of their specials). It comes with maybe 8 ravioli but it's surprisingly filling. Nice service, cozy restaurant, recommend you make reservations in advance.

Ate here twice while visiting family in Foster City. Busy, small restaurant but with outdoor seating too. Always book in advance. Service was brisk and the food & Italian wine was excellent. We enjoyed both the Pollo al Marsala (superb!) and Maiale Con Pancetta washed...More

We have dined there twice, and both times we had a great experience. The first time we were seated next to some folks who insisted we order the prosciutto and burrata appetizer. We were glad we did! It was delicious with their home made bread....More
