Tel: 39 0331 976 507's insider take:

Il Sole has become a temple of Italian haute cuisine, with the presentation and prices that go along with it. The cuisine is based on regional specialties plus ancient recipes, such as the Lasagna del Sole, made with multicolored pasta, scampi, and a Sauternes (sweet wine) sauce. Run by the Brovelli family since 1850, the current chefs Carlo Brovelli and his son Davide also offer fresh seasonal fare: artichokes in the spring, eggplant in the summer, and the catch of the day, whether perch or lake trout, throughout the seasons. Dinner reservations are essential.

Open Mondays 7:30 to 10 pm, Wednesdays through Sundays 12:30 to 2 pm and 7:30 to 10 pm.
