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.

Love to sit at the bar having a pizza and a nice glass of wine and watching everything being prepared in front of me.

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.

Excellent selection of unique menu items. Full wine list. Nice atmosphere - good for a business lunch or romantic dinner. Location is convenient plenty of parking (behind building), food is excellent - never had an entree I didn't love!! Can be busy so recommend reservations unless you got at not popular time.

Our party of six met at Sole for dinner last week and were very pleasantly surprised. Ordinarily, chicken on a menu does not ring my bell. But one of the group had been there before and highly recommended it. Roasted in a wood fired oven, it was super. A great choice. Little pizzas too were excellent. Their wine list was... More

Sole is one of our all time favorite restaurants. It has fantastic food - everything on the menu is terrific - I love the halibut! The service is friendly and knowledgeable. The location on Elm Street in New Canaan can't be beat. And the prices are surprisingly low for the excellent quality of the cuisine, the beauty of the interior,... More

They are serious about food here, and serious about service. If you normally find yourself looking for someone to fill your water glass or fill your long-empty glass of wine, you won't find that here. They do the job very well and you will have trouble narrowing down your choice of great things to order. There's really nothing else you... More
