This restaurant is no joke. I am a regular visitor to Rome, so trust me when I say, Cafe Sole could tango with my Roman favorites. I have never had a risotto dish like the off menu Sausage and Gorgonzola. It was simply amazing. Who knew that a small intimate restaurant in LaCanada could rival Taverna Julia. Safe the air...

Wonderful food and service! We were looking for a place to eat lunch after a morning at Descanso Gardens. So happy we found this place. Everything was fresh and delicious. It was fun watching them make pasta too!

After a trip to Descanso Gardens or Old Town Pasadena, try out Cafe Sole. The chef bakes bread several times each day. The rissoto, caesar salad, pastas (ask which pastas are homemade), and dinner specials are authetic and delicious. There's a patio. Good wine list. Nouvelle pizza menu too.

Saw a movie and we were able to walk right over to this place which was great. We were immediately greeted and seated. First I'm going to talk about the food... They brought warm - key word here - WARM courtesy bread to the table which was very good along with a diced tomato topping that was very yummy. We... More

This is a small restaurant with an outdoor patio. In is located in a small strip mall next to a movie theater. The attraction is the food and service. Have been here many times and never disappointed.

Wow, this is a hidden jewel! The food was excellent, the waiter staff was "on it." This is on-par with some of the best restaurants in Beverly Hills - best Italian food I've ever had in the entire San Fernando Valley! Highly recommend. They have exterior and interior seating. For what you get and compared to other excellent Italian restaurants... More

Small friendly place with good service and food. Nice basic Italian menu with many daily specials. Prices are reasonable. $10 wine corkage charge also reasonable. As others have noted we like the casual quiet ambiance.

We go to Cafe Sole at least once a month. So nice to have a small neighborhood restaurant with consistently delicious food, attentive and friendly service and a cozy, calm ambiance. The fish specials are always particularly good. We highly recommend this place!

If I close my eyes, I can imagine that I am sitting in a small cafe outside of St. Peter's in Rome. The food is delicious. I love the numerous choices of menu items. A very attentive staff and a added perk...they speak Italian. I will definitely come back again.
