Family-owned and operated, Randy Smerik and his team are dedicated to providing an amazing dining experience for you.
Chef Accursio Lotà’s authentic Southern Italian cuisine features a focus on fresh and locally sourced ingredients … including fresh pasta made each morning and organic produce, wild fish, and hormone free meat.
Solare was just named Best Italian Restaurant 2016 in San Diego by San Diego Magazine … and Chef Accursio was named Best Chef in San Diego.
We offer a full lounge, bar, and two outdoor patios offering a deep selection of wines, beers, and craft cocktails. We have a Wine Room for special dinners … a private room … and Solare is available for weddings, private, and corporate events.
Solare helps to sustain the historical landmarks of NTC Promenade … and in fact the classic “Top Gun” movie with actors Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, and Val Kilmer was filmed on the present day front patio of Solare Ristorante.
