Il Sole

Il Sole Sandra Jaquez gave up her Wall Street job to open a restaurant in her native Inwood. The largely Dominican neighborhood has plenty of rice-and-beaneries, so she chose to dish out Italian cuisine. Wood paneling, beige stone floors and intricate metalwork suggest a sun-drenched Mediterranean patio. The conventional starters include greaseless fried calamari and crisp broccoli sautéed in olive oil with slivers of smoky garlic. But the real Italian-American crowd-pleasers are linguine in red sauce topped with a pile of clams, and veal marsala with heaps of sliced mushrooms.

I don’t know why people complain so much about this place. I actually had a good experience when I went. I went on a date night with my husband and we had a lovely time. We ordered the skirt steak and I had the white cheese pasta and he had the fried plantains. After dinner, we ordered a hookah and stayed there for a while. It’s very small, but I had a nice time.

Are you serious? This owner only sits down with people who don't complain about the noise, the terrible food, the awful service. She is a weapons grade B****. She is NOT community oriented and is hostile to all complaints about her illegal hours and LOUD music. The food is so bad it hurts. 


Came by a few times, and since i was warned by friends i din't get upset. Watching the manager sitting down with friends, and drinking wine all night while ignoring the customers and operation is probably the only entertaining thing of the whole dinner experience. Food & service are without any doubts the worst in the neighborhood, i wonder how are still open......


Really bad food. Actually, shockingly bad food. The bread was whatever, the calamari was rubbery, the chicken was overcooked, and the pasta was limp with tasteless sauce. I haven't had food this bad in years.
