Get your chatting done before reaching the restaurant as the din makes it hard to hear more than one person. It is a real staple in New Canaan an d always busy.

Excellent food. Wonderful menu. Impeccable service. I had a wonderful chicken dish. We shared several appetizers. I especially enjoyed the calamari.

Excellent selection of unique menu items. Full wine list. Nice atmosphere - good for a business lunch or romantic dinner. Location is convenient plenty of parking (behind building), food is excellent - never had an entree I didn't love!! Can be busy so recommend reservations unless you got at not popular time.

Our party of six met at Sole for dinner last week and were very pleasantly surprised. Ordinarily, chicken on a menu does not ring my bell. But one of the group had been there before and highly recommended it. Roasted in a wood fired oven, it was super. A great choice. Little pizzas too were excellent. Their wine list was... More

Sole is one of our all time favorite restaurants. It has fantastic food - everything on the menu is terrific - I love the halibut! The service is friendly and knowledgeable. The location on Elm Street in New Canaan can't be beat. And the prices are surprisingly low for the excellent quality of the cuisine, the beauty of the interior,... More

They are serious about food here, and serious about service. If you normally find yourself looking for someone to fill your water glass or fill your long-empty glass of wine, you won't find that here. They do the job very well and you will have trouble narrowing down your choice of great things to order. There's really nothing else you... More

My wife and I enjoyed our meal at Sole this past Saturday very much! We decided on this restaurant in New Canaan to try something different for our Saturday night date night. The drinks were good - not very alcoholic but elegantly presented. The meals were delicious and also nicely presented. My wife had the mushroom spinach ravioli and I... More

Had dinner with friends from high school on a reunion weekend. Three of us had an excellent dinner including lovely wine, terrific main course, and delicious desserts. The atmosphere was lively with every table taken. The service was excellent. We were able to converse and even had an unexpected guest with us for drinks before our meal.

.......... based on the location, the Trip Advisor reviews and the Certificate of Excellence. I was not disappointed. As most of the other reviewers say, it is a lovely restaurant with unusual Italian dishes (not the usual Southern dishes) and has quiet but attentive staff. Excellent! The price reflects the quality of food and service. (It is not overpriced.) JWL... More
