THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Il Sole Restaurant Review

: With its subtle lighting and soft sponge-painted walls, Il Sole can be quite a romantic spot as long as the crowd isn’t too boisterous. Nevertheless, the food can delight on many levels. You can opt for the daily tasting menu, or order any portion of it, and be perfectly content. The frico salad is the house darling, a medley of field greens served in a crisp basket made of tangy Parmesan. The seasonal menu features pastas, risottos, and seafood done with lots of olive oil and Mediterranean herbs. While you can order a variety of cheese plates here for dessert, go for the maple crème brûlée with homemade gingersnaps instead.
