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...More

Hi Guru, You have the wrong place...Solorzano's Italian Restaurant doesn't sell pizza or deliver. There are three other places in Sarasota with a similar name that are pizzerias.

For the Williams78 how could you rate the food and service if you did not eat there? I understand that some restaurants do not cater to children as they can be annoying to guests trying to enjoy a nice diner. This is an upscale place and the owners want their guests to enjoy a lovely evening. There are other restaurants that are children friendly, such as Applebees, Ruby Tuesday and TGI to mention a few. You can also try Olive Garden if you want Italian. Just trying to help.
