Pizzeria Solario is okay in my book.....

and here's why. It's cheery, comfortable, and TASTY!!!!!! There is outside seating that looks very nice, waiting for cooler weather to give the patio a try.

My friend David recommended the place. I was skeptical, because sometimes his choices are a bit limiting, but he hit the mark with this place. The first time I went, I met David and Lisa. The  6" lunch pizza was offered up as the way to go by David, but I looked at the menu and opted for the Smoked Salmon on flatbread. It is a delightful sandwich, toasted flatbread with smoked salmon, roma tomatoes, arugula, balsamic vinegar and feta. I optioned out of the feta due to lactose problems, but Lisa had the exact same sandwich with the feta and she said it was excellent. I thought it was excellent without it. So there you go. David stayed with the 6" pizza and I have to say it looked mighty appealing, so when David and I met for lunch today, I decided to give the pizza a try.

 It is cooked in a wood burning oven, so it's hard to go wrong there.

There are four choices for the lunch pizza: Margherita, Marinara, Pepperoni, Bianca. Of course, if you are not having the lunch pizza, there is a much wider ranch of toppings. The good thing about the lunch pizza, for $9 you get a great pizza, a salad and a soft drink or tea. I have to tell you not to miss out on their salad. It is mixed greens with the most heavenly vinaigrette. The greens are fresh, downright perky, the dressing is made in house out of roasted garlic, olive oil and lemon. I could drink the stuff, actually took my pizza crust and sopped up some of it. Oh my, how nice.

A quick note about the crust. It is not a thin crust, but not a thick thick crust either. It is well prepared and perfect in its form. The sauce is thick and stands to attention on the crust. I had the pepperoni pizza without cheese, of course. David had cheese on his.

This is David's with cheese.
 He's crazy about the place. I am in agreement.

Back to the Smoked Salmon flatbread sandwich, David told me that the smoked salmon was caught in the pool of water on the patio. If you can catch salmon in Yemen, why not smoked salmon in Houston. You never know.

This is David. Great hair!!!

This might be a great place to go before or after a movie at Edwards or after shopping at Costco. Heck, it's worth a trip, just to enjoy lunch with my friend David on a Sunday.

Here is their tag line: If pizza and wine is your religion, Pizzeria Solario is your Sistine Chapel.

Quote of the Day: When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
lyrics by Jack Brooks.
