Dino's of Solon is closing after only 16 months of business, according to Dino's partner John Tibaldi.
Dino's of Solon is closing after 16 months. The restaurant, which moved into a building on SOM Center Road, will have its last day on Oct. 20. The restaurant will remain open for dinner this week. In an email to business and city leaders, Dino's co-owner John Tibaldi explained why the decision was made to close: Due to deteriorating sales and high expenses, my partners and I have made the difficult decision to close down Dino’s of Solon. Despite our efforts, we were unable to make this side project – which we all felt very passionate about – work. We gave it a shot but fell short – no regrets. (well perhaps a few) ...

The information in this report is from the Solon Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
A drunk man kicked out of Dino's of Solon on Dec. 30 apparently really had to go. The 31-year-old Burton man asked Solon Police officers -- who were called to the restaurant to escort him out after they complained about his belligerent behavior -- if he could urinate in the parking lots. The officers, who were waiting for the man's friend to pick him up, said no. According to a police report, the man kept asking the officers if he could use the parkng lot to relieve himself. The answer remained no. So when his ride showed up the man went to get into the car, but stopped suddenly and began urinating in the parking lot. Instead of climbing into his friend's car, he was put in the back of a police cruiser. The man was arrested and charged …

Inside this multi-level eatery, you won’t find red-checkered tablecloths, Chianti bottles dripping with candle wax, or ropes of garlic hanging on the walls. The décor is plain and simple; the food does all of the 'talking'
Dino’s Restaurant may be new to Solon, but it has been serving up Italian-American fare for more than 50 years at its Willoughby, Willowick and Mentor locations. Originally started by the Tibaldi family in the 1960s, Dino’s is still family-owned and operated by brothers Pete and John Tibaldi, along with Tony Dobbert, co-owner and manager of the Solon spot. Inside this multi-level eatery, you won’t find red-checkered tablecloths, Chianti bottles dripping with candle wax, or ropes of garlic hanging on the walls. The décor is plain and simple; the food does all of the “talking.” “Our focus is on bringing customers authentic, delicious food with attentive service,” says Dobbert. “All of our dishes are prepared from scratch and made to …
