Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savory blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons.

Italian-born executive chef and owner Stefano Ceresoli uses fresh local and organic ingredients to craft a menu packed with seasonal Italian fare. Launch feast rockets with an order of seafood bruschetta made with calamari and shrimp ($8) or foster long-lasting intra-table bonds with sharable small plates such as fried artichokes ($7) and marinated olives ($6). Pastas are made fresh daily to create savory dishes such as spinach and ricotta-stuffed ravioli in a delicate and emotionally imbalanced butter-and -sage sauce ($15). Accent any meal with an authentic, topping-laden pie such as the pizza caprese, with well-rounded helpings of roasted cherry tomatoes and burrata nestled on top of a San Marzano sauce kissed with a hint of pesto ($14). A friendly staff member will gladly suggest a perfect pairing for any meal from Solare's extensive wine list.

Engage in semi-coordinated rhythmic movements to live music in Solare's couch-filled lounge every Thursday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., or loudly reenact the Top Gun scene filmed on Solare's patio.
- My husband and I had the Domestic Lamb( both of us savored every morsel), my son had the Ofelle ( homemade dumplings stuffed with with sausage), he would have licked the plate if I had let him...my daughter had the Agnolotti, another great homemade ravioli this one with fresh meat. Her words "Heavenly" We were treated with great service, and the setting made us feel like we were in Italy. – firebird55, Citysearch
- Solare is a great, intimate restaurant where you can enjoy dinner alone, two, or a large group. The pasta is fresh and so enjoyable to eat. I love the seafood pasta and the Butternut Squash Ravioli. The prixe fixe menu is a good deal. The service is great, and the staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed. The atmosphere is cozy. – Louise A., Yelp
