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 in San Diego, Best Chef (Accursio Lotà!), and Best Wine List by San Diego Magazine.
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.
