Wonderful experience. The owners are terrific people! Franca is a lovely woman who makes you feel like you are family. The ambiance is like no other . Truly in a class all by itself. The food was amazing ! The food is of excellent quality. Our ravioli with Bolognese was terrific and the seafood lasagna excellent. The meatballs were to die for , just like my grandmothers !We felt as though we were at the family dinner table . What a delight from the moment we were greeted . We can not wait to come back. This is without a doubt the BEST Italian food in Sarasota ! Thank you for a wonderful evening. All the best !

What a wonderful dinning experience, great authentic Italian food! Service was terrific, Oscar took great care of the four of us! And the owner Franky well, she was the best! Being from Hoboken N.J. when seeing their Advertisement I was truly interested in how authentic it would be, and let me tell you I felt like I was at home in Hoboken at one of my favorite restaurants..Simply a wonderful evening, We were a party of four and we all left happy,Sated and are still chatting about our terrific experience,Thank You Franky and Stall!

Solarzano's has two restaurants in the same strip mall and we visited the pizza restaurant. We were skeptical about having pizza in Florida, however, the owners are originally from Hoboken, NJ! We were not disappointed! The pizza was excellent and the server, very friendly. They have many choices of toppings ( the whilte pizza was delicious) and the crust is great! We took the leftovers home and ate it cold the next day ( just as yummy). We look forward to going to the other restaurant which is a lovely, more formal, Italian restaurant just doors away.

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.

Franca is Jersey gemstone, a mortal dress she wears as naturally as the food is authentic Italian. She loves real Italians and "wannabes" alike.

The Rabi and Sausage over Cavatelli is peasant fare with perfect pitch. We'll be back for the Atripe, Sungilli, and the rest when in town.

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.
