Had an enjoyable meal at Sole. Very good English spoken by both the owner and chef. Fresh homemade bread and pasta. Reasonably priced. Will be back.

Just enjoyed a good meal at Sole. The staff was very helpful with suggestions and offered a fine wine to accompany our meal. With so many restaurants to choose from, this is a good choice.

I remember my first visit here years ago, the served me tortelloni with Lavender. It rocked my world! Ever since I have been coming back every now and then (say once per year) and sadly, they have never delivered that same wow. However, I like their style of cuisine and their staff. It's not the cheapest place in town, but... More

Was told by friends that it was a good place to eat but slightly overpriced. Menu looked good, service was good. Unfortunately the evening was rather average. The food didn't live up to its expectations sadly and the price was slightly over the top. I might go back, but it better improve.

My wife and I were far from impressed by this overpriced pretentious restaurant. We were out on a romantic diner and it completely killed the mood. So many great Italian restaurant, this one is not one of them.

Albergo Sole was our stay on a bycicle-hike from Stresa to The Adria all along the Ticino River and the Po River. It was just perfect – the rooms in the nice square just a few steps from the Ticino Rivr, the Dinner in the restaurant – and finally a breakfast which deserves this name – since the italians are...

Got invited there for a birthday. The restaurant is on a small place next to the lake. The inside looks brand new, clean and well looked after. The design is a mix of old and new, a bit cold in my opinion. The menu is spot-on, including a lot of lake fish dishes. I went for an antipasto made of... More

This just a great local eatery. The owner and chef will gladly assist with your wishes. The menu is dynamic and just enough selection to please. Remember this is a small city in Italy, be patient, communicate your likes, dislikes or issues. I sampled items at random and was not disappointed. Each course was very good, a lovely house wine...

I've been staying in Sesto Calende frequently and I finally got a chance to eat at Solo! Very fancy and sophisticated. The menu had many gourmet offerings beyond the standard Italian fare and everything is perfect. A fine and fancy night out in Italy!
