Eat Real Pizza.
Carlos Jr. started making pizza at the age of 12 at Filippo’s Pizzeria in Hoboken, New Jersey. Filippo Centrella, the founder of the family bisiness and Carlos Jr.’s grandfather, had taught Carlos’ father the trade many years earlier. In 2003, after many successful years in Hoboken, the Solorzano family moved to Sarasota and opened Solorzano’s Italian Restaurant. Carlos Jr. and brother Philip Solorzano opened both Solorzano Bros. Pizza locations on Siesta Key and Webber Street in 2007. For the past eight years, third generation pizzaiolo Carlos Solorzano Jr. has continued to carry on his family tradition with the families of Sarasota.
At Solorzano Bros. Pizza, all dough, sauces, bread and desserts made in house from scratch. They use only the finest blend of Italian cheeses on the market. All pies are made to order, hand crafted and baked in an old school deck oven.
“The absolute best pizza and service. I loved the atmosphere and the food tasted so amazing. The man at the front counter serving my boyfriend and I was so friendly and helpful. I would advise going here. I would eat here every single day if I could. (:” – Hannah W.
“Finally GREAT PIZZA in Florida. After 8 months of searching for good pizza in Florida, we finally found the “pizza pot of gold” at Solorzano’s on Webber St in Sarasota. The pizza crust was perfection with the crust slightly crisp on the bottom and the crust light and chewy. The sauce was the crowning touch adding to a taste perfection. The restaurant itself is a fun, relaxed, comfortable place with red checkered tablecloths and Billy Joel and Chubby Checker playing in the background. We would have come for the ambiance alone but the pizza made us think we had finally arrived in pizza heaven. Can’t wait to return and try everything on the menu. Thanks Carlos for making the best pizza in the Sarasota area.” – Meg G.
“Simply the Best!! I was born in New York City and raised in New Jersey. When it comes to Italian food and Pizza, I know great food. When I moved to Florida, I mentally prepared myself knowing that i would never have great pizza ever again. Then i found Solorzano Bros Pizza and they truly brought me back home. From the homemade sauce to the top quality cheese and dough. I am proud to say that the Solorzano family has managed to pull it off. The did the impossible and brought New Jersey to Saraso, FL. I want to personally thank Solorzano Bros Pizza for giving me a taste of home…. simply put, its the BEST!!! – ThatDude3442
