We often visit Sole for pretty good pasta. We made an online reservation two days early, requesting a table near the front window. There was a table for 2 which the Maitre D' said he was holding for a group of 3 (didn't make sense) so we were seated in the bar area at the very rear of the restaurant... More

Sole is a great spot and has been for years, I have been going since it opened. The wood burning oven turns out sopme great dished and pizzas. I particulary like sitting at the bar to eat, looking at the fire as food is prepared. The staff is very friendly and professional.

A first time visit with my husband and we went on a Friday night. Great atmosphere. Excellent service. Varied menu with lots of options. It's not cheap but quality and preparation of the food was good. I would look forward to going again. The snapper special was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had. Bread was great too!

Sole has survived many changes over the years, but it remains an excellent dining choice in a town filled with options. The decor is appealing, the night lighting subtle, and the menu continues to delight. Reasonably priced for the quality. Their wood-fired pizzas are one of the best menu choices. Wine list is extensive (but not inexpensive). Definitely a great... More

We have been coming to Sole since we moved to New Canaan almost 13 years ago and it has been a long time favorite. Restaurants can come and go in our town and this one has stood the test for good reason. It is a great spot for everyone; couples, families, celebrations, business lunches and intimate dinners. Half price wine... More

Was my dad's favorite place after Fat's Tuesday went away. Service is always welcoming. Place is busy on those nights, but staff handles it well. Wonderful thin pizzas with choices of interesting wines. You will enjoy.

Make a reservation because many New Canaanites eat here often. It is a great family meal or even date night with friends. Food is consistently amazing and served with an attentive staff..........I dare you to try to have an empty glass of water. It's just really good food with a great selection for everyone. Eat at the kitchen bar and... More

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.
