I had a great dinner at Soli during a business trip to Freehold. I'm a sucker for old-time NJ Italian restaurants, having grown up here and being Italian-American, and this is a very good one. Their salads are fresh and huge, and I had a very good eggplant Parmesan for my main course. The wine list is quite short, but... More

We went on a Saturday night and didn't have a reservation. However, we were seated immediately. They have a very limited wine list but you can BYOB. My friend and I had the beggars purse with the pear and walnut sauce. It was fantastic! Our other friend had the linguine with shrimp and she was very happy with it as... More

Dinner specials were excellent as well as the salads and appetizers. Service was friendly and patient with our 'long term' meal.

There are scores, perhaps hundreds, of Italian restaurants near by. For my money, Solo is the best of them. Outstanding food, pleasant atmosphere and great service. Don't forget that they will make almost any Italian standard, even if it is not on the menu. Also they have been very accommodating to dietary needs, (gluten free).

Spent a quiet Tuesday lunch here with a friend. I ordered the beggar's purse pasta filled with pears with a walnut cream sauce and my dining companion ordered the panini of the day, with Italian sausage, peppers, spinach and cheese on Giorgio bread. Both were large portions and quite delicious. The panini was served with light, crispy homemade chips.

We been to Solo for dinner several times, and it never disappoints! Great service, food served in timely fashion, cooked perfectly...always a good time. We had two appetizers...Polenta and Saltimboca alla Giorgio both very tasteful. The main course was perfect...my wife had grilled salmon over a bed of spinach and canellini beans, and I had the "award winning " Rigatoncini... More
