Food Review: Sole Mio (Central)


Sole Mio is an authentic Italian restaurant serving classic Italian cuisine for more than 15 years, and has recently moved to a new location in Soho with a more spacious environment and nicer view overlooking the buzzing area in the heart of Central. 



Insalate

Insalata Caprese ($118)

A dish to test for fresh ingredient, Sole Mio passed it! Their tomato and the bufala mozzarella were so fresh and were served with fresh basil, extra virgin olive oil and black olives. Nothing is better than this authentic Italian salad as a starter for a lovely meal. 


Pizza

Sole Mio ($158)

A thin crust pizza with four cheese (parmesan, gorgonzola, zozzarella, fontina) with salami ventricina, and rucola. This pizza surprised us a little bit. We thought it would simply be a salami rocket pizza with tomato sauce. It was actually really rich in cheese flavour and it complemented really well with the spicy salami ventricina. Surprisingly, there is no tomato sauce at all! All the flavours were from the cheese, old cuts, and the fresh rockets. 



Pasta 

Linguine Alle Vongole ($158)

Linguine pasta served with clams with white wine sauce. The pasta was definitely al denti and rightly seasoned. The pasta was has a hint of good clam flavour, topped with fresh parsley, along with a subtle white wine taste it to. It really reminded me of the same dish I had when I went to a small restaurant in an alley in Venice, Italy. 




Risotti

Risotto Ai Fruitti Di Mare ($178)

Each pasta or risotti dish can be paired with white wine or tomato sauce. For our risotto, we have chosen to enjoy it with tomato sauce. The arborio rice cooked with mixed seafood including scallops, mussels, clams, calamaris, prawns


Secondi 

Filetto Al Pepe Verde ($258)

Charcoal grilled USA beef tenderloin served with green pepper sauce, sided with new potatoes, green and yellow zucchinis and French beans. The medium-rare steak was cooked with fresh rosemary, that’s what made it so fragrant. What’s more? The green pepper sauce gave the dish a unique taste with its sweet and slight spiciness. We really wish there are more dishes using green pepper sauce because it is really good! 


Mementi Dolci

Tiramisu ($75)

How can a Italian dinner finish without a good old tiramisu? The alcoholic authentic tiramisu was light and smooth. 


UVA Bombetta ($68)

We had also tried something very special and different. They were dynamite grapes, fermented in grappa alcohol. We thought they were green and black olives but then they were actually seedless green and purple grapes. The infused grapes were very very strong in grappa after being soaked for three months. 


Sole Mio not only offers nice a la carte dinner but also happy hour with half price drinks, perfect for summer days to stay indoor with nice air-con. 

Moreover, weekend brunch would be a great options too to have some relaxing time after a long week. For $168, you may enjoy a semi-buffet with all you can eat cold cuts, seafood, and more, plus a main course, dessert/tea or coffee. What a bargain!
