Service: Pro and very friendly
Equipment & Facilities: Great overall cleanliness and superb washroom. Entirely non-smoking!
Prices: Reasonable considering the quality
Strong points: Fresh local ingredients whenever possible. Both traditional and inventive Italian cuisine. Good wine list at moderate prices. Open late!

Although I have been patronizing Soloio Italian Restaurant in Shizuoka City for 5 years it was the first time I visited it for lunch! The reason is simple enough: they started serving lunch on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only from this year!

And their lunch is of great value!
For 1,404 yen (less than 12 US $ or less than 11 Euros!) you have a full antipasto misti plate, one of the three main pasta or risotto dishes, bread and olive oil, coffee or tea!
And for a ridiculous 300 yen you can add a dessert!
Let me introduce what we had the other day!
