So I tried to make a reservation online and never got a response. We went anyway and got a table at 815 pm. The service was pretty good, but the food was good, but not the great food so many reviews claim. The prices were too high for the flavor. There are plenty of better Italian restaurants on the island... More

Amazing Italian dishes on the island. We all loved our dishes. Definitely recommend anything with a red sauce. Veal Parmesan was tender and cooked perfectly. Cannoli dessert was good as well. Nice wine selection. One downfall was that it took awhile to get our check at the end. We waited about 20 minutes.

If not for our waiter, Rodell, this would be only rated one star because you don't have zero. When we arrived we were told our reservation was at 7:30 not 9pm.

It seems to me that this restaurant has been open all (or nearly all) of the years we've been visiting Aruba .. which is 22 years ... and yet it has taken until January 2017 for us to get to Sole Mare despite hearing many mentions over the years. Big mistake. Should have done it sooner! We loved it. When... More

My husband and I love it here. We always get the Formaggi and it is delicious. You can get it with rigatoni. I love the polenta and they have nice choices for wine. Service is great and the staff is friendly.

Family vacation with In-laws and spent a night enjoying spectacular dinner at Sole Mare' The lasagna was phenomenal and the off the menu online deal for $25 includes salad or soup, entree, and dessert and coffee. Great evening. Walking distance from hotels.

This place is comparable to the olive garden. I ordered the seafood fra diavlo. Asked for no squid but got a ton of it. Everyone else enjoyed their meals.

the best Italian restaurant in the Caribbean. Great consistent service. Their special pasta finished in a round parmessan cheese is outstanding. The place is great for couples and families. make a reservation though, this place is always full. Prices reasonable for Aruba

1.canned olives 2. Lunch meat thin veal parmesan 3. Pasta noodles with ketchup Tourist trap! Not real Italian. Every time I complained, the waiter said he would tell the 'chef' well...I guess chef Boyardee was too busy to come out. The best part of the night was went the taxi came.
