The concierge at the Omni recommended this place; somewhere close with really good Italian. It's quiet and everyone is super friendly. The menu has a nice variety and they make their own pasta in house. My wife had chicken fettuccini and said it was absolutely fab. I had the swordfish special which was very good, and crab cake appetizer, which... More

We just stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant. So glad we did. The food is cooked to order and all the pastas are made in the restaurant. Started with small Cesar Salad and Spinach Salad. The dressings on both salads were perfect. Hubby had Penne Pasta with Vodka Sauce and Italian Sausage. Just right portion. It was excellent.... More

Pleasantly surprised. Close to the major hotels. Great service with "Yankee quality" Italian food. We walked in with a party of 8, but call ahead to be safe.

I was looking for a quiet restaurant near my hotel in Nashville and that is almost impossible!!! I found Solo Mio and had a nice dinner. The restaurant IS quiet and has a nice atmosphere. The waiter told me they were best known for their homemade pastas and sauces (you can "mix and match"); I ordered the linguini with ragu... More

Sole Mio is a great choice for a special night out. Great food, great service and extensive wine list. A Thursday night found the dining room fairly quiet so it felt special and nice to be in a quiet restaurant for a change. Started with Lobster bisque and a Caesar salad, The bisque was very flavorful without being heavy. The... More

Should have read the reviews. Service slow, no attention to customers. Not like it use to be. The sauces had no flavor.

Service was good but the food was terrible. I had chicken picatta and was way over cooked, the sauce what little was on my plate bland. Save your money don't go to Sole Mio!

Off Broadway and tucked away, the perfect place for a quiet dinner. Cannelloni was excellent and they had a good wine list. Staff was attentive and friendly.

Description
At Sole Mio, all of our Italian dishes are made from scratch from authentic Northern Italian family recipes. When you step foot into our space, you'll feel as if you have stepped out of Nashville and onto the streets of Italy. Sole Mio started on the beaches of the Adriatic Sea over 25 years ago. Owner GianCarlo Agnoletti opened his first restaurant in his hometown near Rimini, Italy. There he developed a passion for wonderfully fresh, Northern Italian food and is pleased to share it with you here in Nashville. Sole Mio specializes in serving fresh house-made pastas, sauces and desserts. Our house favorites include our rolled veal involtini, lobster ravioli and Linguine Carbonara. Don't forget to save room for our Home-made Tiramisu! Sole Mio is the perfect place for special occasions, date nights and even large, private business dinners. Come see why everyone in Nashville knows Sole Mio is the best Italian.
