THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Il Sole Restaurant Review

: Just down the street from the Sunset Plaza outdoor-café madness, Il Sole delivers authentic Italian food in a redesigned setting featuring banquettes and candlelit tables. Savoring the cuisine is a hip clientele drawn by the owners (a music manager and film producer, and a rock concert promoter), who partnered with entrepreneur Brent Bolthouse on the restaurant’s redo. The menu, overseen by chef Issac Rivera, highlights regional Italian dishes such as Parmigiana di melanzane alla Napoletana (Napoli-style eggplant Parmesan) and spaghetti con ragù di carne alla Toscana (Tuscan-style spaghetti with meat ragù). For the sweet note, the obligatory tiramisu is a good choice, along with the panna cotta. A meal at Il Sole (the sun) is definitely a little sunshine in our busy lives.

IL - WASTE OF TIME!!!!
by LAFOODIE on Wed Jul 02, 2008 7:40 pm
 
I made reservations for dinner (4 guests) a couple of days ago and requested for patio dining. The request was confirmed via email and also I personally confirmed the reservation by phone last night and was not given any warning of what i was going to hear on the day of the event We arrived at Il Sole today at 615pm to celebrate my husbands birthday and to my DISAPPOINTMENT, I was told that we can only eat at the confirmed patio reservation for 1 hour and 15 minutes!!!!!! how can one enjoy a birthday celebration with appetizers, drinks, main course, dessert and coffee in an hour and 15 minutes????? It was a complete waste of time! they should include in their website or when they confirm requests that you are only allowed to have the table for an hour and 15 minutes. IL RUSH????? we went to AGO instead and had a wonderful time. Spent $350.00 at Ago but well worth it.
