I’ve been going to this outstanding restaurant for years. It remains one of my favorites. A charming Italian restaurant designed to look like an Italian inn, it features an outstanding menu a wine list featuring a choice of 700! The service is outstanding—enabling people from nearby Universal Studios to enjoy an outstanding lunch and get back to work on time. I had a wonderful mezzaluna with pumpkin and squash filling. One of my perennial favorites is capellini ala cecca.

It's a treat to dine at an Italian restaurant like Ca' del Sole. The food is exquisite, the presentation is spot on, and the wine list is comprehensive, especially as you might imagine, with Italian wines. My only complaint for the evening was that when we were first seated, the waiter was slow to find us and take our drinks order. Following that, everything was perfect. I had the lamb chops, preceded by a Caesar salad, and everything was great. Other people at the table had carpaccio and various pastas. Come here for that really special evening.

Finally had a dinner meeting here after all these years and was seated outside on the patio. It was a bit chilly so had to request a heater a few times and then it finally arrived. Other than that the staff seemed attentive and knowledgeable of their menu. I ordered the house salad which was as expected and nothing to note. The entree was the Bronzino which was fresh however a bit over sauced with a white wine base on a bed of artichokes.

The meal was flavorful however not overwhelming. The location seems to be the base for many a power meal given the proximity to the studios.

A family get together celebrating 2 birthdays. We were 22 people. We had a private room with a outdoor patio area for a open bar and the serving of appetizers. A choice menu of pasta dishes, or veal or fish. Salad and dessert was also served. Every dish was fantastic. The service was beyond great. A very impressive event.

What a treat to have dinner here. Wait staff was helpful and service was prompt and not intrusive. The kitchen will take custom orders and whipped up a chicken Milanese that was crisp and tasty. A garlic, oil and basil pasta was hands down the best we ever tasted. We shared that dish and took turns saying “Just one more twirl..”.
Ripe tomatoes under creamy burrata and a green salad with raw artichoke hearts. A nice contrast to the richness of the cheese. Desserts were heavenly and I wish I had tried them all. There is an outdoor garden area under a canvas ceiling that was lovely and the main dining room is spacious and relaxing. I highly recommend you give this wonderful eatery a try.
