Simply amazing! On a business trip in Clearwater and found this place. Highly recommend! The while lasagna was amazing! The staff was excellent and attentive. Genuinely sincere and made the experience all the better!
The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, however, the food is where it was lacking. The bread they bring out with olive oil to dip was undercooked, the carbonara was so salty I had to send it back, and largely their pasta dishes are over sauced. The menu is comprehensive and the wine was good. Some additional training for the kitchen staff and this restaurant could really be great.
Last night was our first time at Soul Sicilian Fusion. It was such a great find and experience. Tucked in at the east end of the no-driving zone of Cleveland Street and next to the huge Nash Keys bar, it can be easy to overlook. But do yourself a favor and seek out this quiet gem.The restaurant is small and immaculate. The staff are wonderful. The food is a decent selection of Italian dishes that covers the range from pasta dishes to great seafood choices.We chose a shrimp fettuccine in red sauce dish and an orecchiette special that were both light and flavorful. We paired our meal with a great Super Tuscan wine, and finished with a Limoncello Tiramisu that was unique and delicious.We'll be back. Especially as Spring approaches and we can enjoy outdoor dining on the street.
The Truffle Pinsa is one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life! A style of pizza that is lighter and absolutely delicious! We enjoyed everything we had. Service was excellent, nice wine list, white tablecloths make for a special dining experience. I will return for more of the Pinsa and to try other items.
Quaint but cramped. Not enough space between tables. The bread was hard and cold - like the previous day's leftovers. The tomatoes in the caprese salad were cold rather than room temperature. The octopus appetizer was excellent and our pasta and fish entrees and dessert were great. So a B+ in my book... the cold day old bread really made a bad first impression. I was really hoping this would become our go-to spot before shows at the Capitol but the $30/entree prices aren't supported by the so so atmosphere and cold bread.
Soul Sicilian Fusion is an awesome little dining gem. The food, service and ambience are always above average. I was excited to find the cuddlefish black ink pasta on the menu, and it was a more delicious culinary preparation than I had ever experienced. And as always they topped off our wonderful meal with a complementary limoncello. Love this restaurant!
Ambiance is a little bare and strange. Says Sicilian but has some kind of trinkety non-Italian odd decor. Bread and oil and the start was good. The carbonara was great, but the rest of our meals were just decent to good. The tiramisu was good. The Sicilian wine was nice. The complimentary after dinner limoncello shots were a nice touch! Really a cool location.
We cannot say enough about this wonderful restaurant. Thoughtfully prepared foods using the freshest ingredients. Amazing wine list and service as it should be. We started with the fresh bread, and Burrata appetizer. We tried not to finish it to save room for dinner. My husband had the lamb chops that were perfectly prepared. I had the pasta special with sausage and 3 types of fresh mushrooms. We drank a wonderful Pinot Noir. We couldn't resist desert of Gelato and Limoncello Tiramisu. We also received complimentary shots of limoncello. The staff was welcoming and attentive. This restaurant is smallish and intimate. Truly a special place. Yes you need a reservation for this gem so plan ahead!
Pleasantly surprised. Had dinner prior to a show. My wife had the salmon which she said was excellent and I had the carbonara which was done as it is in Italy without cream sauce. It was fantastic. it's the only restaurant I found that makes it that way. We will definitely go back to try other items on the menu when we're up in that area for a show. Service was very good. Ambience was nice. To top off the dinner they gave you housemate, lemoncello.
The young waitress needs to learn more about serving portions on time and together. Others were very courteous and helpful. The meal was very attractive to look at and had an interesting Taste of the sea bass, which we shared. Salad was very tasty. .
Excellent food. We ate on the sidewalk before a concert at the Sound and it was great! I would definitely recommend a reservation so you can be sure you'll get in. Great place!
This is one of, if not the best restaurant in downtown Clearwater. It's a gem! The service stands out as friendly and attentive. The food is beyond expectations. The menu choice are imaginative and creative. And don't forget desert!
Apps were good, meatballs and Italian meat n cheese. Swordfish was over cooked (dry). Service was fair Apps plates still on the table when the main meal was trying to be served. Had to ask for more wine! Overall not good when compared to the competition in Clearwater and Dunedin
I've been in America since a while and I can finally say, as a real Italian, this is the right place to eat! The food was so great and authentic and people were just so welcoming and friendly. So glad I've found out of this place on vacation and please visit them because they really deserve recognition.
Not authentic Italian, not even American Italian. Had the pasta alla vongole and I had better at Olive Garden Wife had the special braised beef ravioli and al dente was boot what it came out ass. The ravioli was hard like it was sitting for a week. Had the meatballs in sauce and they were underwhelming. No flavor just bland. Had to add salt and pepper to try and give it flavor. The desert limoncello tiramisu was so soggy it was unbeatable. Highly don't recommend.
