Re: “Sole Mio

I hate having to write negative reviews, but if I could save someone from a bad experience, then I feel somewhat obligated. Went to Sole Mio's with a small group celebrating multiple birthdays. Never been before, but we were in the mood for Italian and were going to a show a few blocks away after dinner, so it fit nicely with our plans. We were in a great mood, so it took a lot to bring us down. Every course we ordered was bland and boring, which is inexcusable considering that it is more expensive than other local Italian restaurants that offer the same items. There were no real values on the wine list. Markup was substantial for a restaurant as sub par as it was. Do you know how depressing it is to say "This dish actually tasted better at Olive Garden"? I absolutely hate Olive Garden. It was that bad. I know I might sound somewhat cheap complaining about prices. To clarify, I don't mind at all to pay more for better quality food. But if you can't even beat Olive Garden, then you probably should just shut it down. To wrap the meal up, we got a few desserts for the table. The waiter said they were "taken care of", since we were celebrating multiple birthdays. They weren't. He still charged us anyway. In short, if you like Italian food, don't go here. It's just sad.

Re: “Sole Mio

Love this place! The food is delicious. I always manage to eat more than I should. Its not often that I get authentic Italian food like this. While the atmosphere is a little more reserved, I prefer a little more noise/activity... I have NEVER had a bad experience and I love introducing friends and family there

Re: “Buca Di Beppo

It was absolutly delicious! Their fried mozerella is wonderful and so is their Ceasar salad! It's quite pricey, but well worth it for an occasional family dinner on the town.

Re: “Mafiaoza's

I love good pizza and Mafiazo's definitely delivers.. Great tasting pies for sure. BUT - Its very expensive for pizza.. I like going here. Would go here more often but once you get a couple of drinks, a salad to share, and a pizza, you have already dropped at least $60.00. There are a lot more restaurants I would go to before Mafiazo's if I am planning on dropping that kind of coin... Its in a great neighborhood, great atmosphere at the restaurant, very nice patio, but in the end its just pizza. Delicious pizza. :)

Re: “City House

The anchovy pizza was amazing, as well as everything else. The crust was perfect and they didn't overdo the cheese. Don't skip one of the few restaurants here, if not the only one, that hand-cures their own mozzarella. This is by far a favorite!

Re: “Sole Mio

Nice atmosphere, but that's about it. Rude waitstaff (our large group was automatically gratuitized, so maybe that's why?). Our waiter spilled my glass of wine and I had to ask him to replace it for free (he wanted to charge us). One rude look later, he did eventually bring a new glass on the house. I also ordered the 3 course special. Our waiter instead ticketed the first 2 courses a la carte, which was, of course, more expensive. He tried to charge for the 3rd course, but I just declined the dessert. The food was bland, and more expensive than most Italian restaurants in Nashville. Mama Mia's is much better. Avoid this place.
