    The food was overpriced for what we got. It was decent quality. Very little toppings on the pizza and almost no cheese. Kale salad was tasty but needed more toppings or dressing as it was almost entirely shredded kale. Wine by the glass is over-priced and no Chianti by the glass.

    The lobster appetizer was outstanding. the carne crudo is perfect, shaved pecorino (i think) dresses the meat leaving the flavor of the carne not overwhelmed by other ingredients which is a lovely change of pace. service was quick and reliable. second time dining here, and it is now a staple in me and my boyfriends’ date night options.

    This place is one of my favorites. The drinks are amazing and the food was incredible. The lobster toast and risotto really stood out. The place was busy and packed but the service was still great and attentive. They even brought out complimentary champagne for my partner and I. Definitely recommend!

    Came here for dinner during a conference and was the best choice of the day. The sardine dish is in my top 10 of all time. The drinks were great and the risotto was excellent. Ambiance was lively but not overwhelming. 4 thumbs up.

    Had a bug crawl out of our kale salad. Pasta was too al dente, so much so that some of it was crunchy. They did remove the salad from the bill.

    Sunday afternoon sometimes we like to share a pizza, couple salads, bottle of Nebbiolo (or other light lovely Italian red) and finish with a couple "doppio" espressos. Sofia fits the bill! Great atmosphere, service, décor and fresh ingredients.

    We went to Sofia to celebrate a friend's birthday, and we had a wonderful time! Drinks were outstanding and creative, the service was excellent (we had Lilly as our server and she was attentive and knowledgable and offered great recommendations), and the food was top notch. I definitely think my friend felt appropriately celebrated - we will be back!

    All the food was just okay. The beef crudo was a covered in a layer of cheese which was i subjectively Wasn’t a fan. The meatballs were lackluster but fine. The real problem came when I received my pizza. It was covered in salt flakes. Every bite was like taking a sip of ocean water. I told the waitress how much it affected the pizza, and she just said that’s how they serve it. I could’ve eat it. I guess I won’t order pizza there again since she clearly didn’t think it was a problem. I’ve enjoyed good meals there before. Maybe it was just an off night.

    Our waitress was wonderful and attentive. However the food took forever to come out. Also the portion size to the price was way off. Such a tiny portion for pasta. If I didn’t have an appetizer and a pizza I would have been still hungry. Also the meatballs were very pricy for 2!

    The food was delicious, we especially enjoyed the pasta alla vodka and the Margherita pizza. All of the mixed drinks we tried were perfect. We were in a big group and the layout of the table was great for sharing (there was a lazy Susan in the middle of the table!) and for everyone to be able to see each other. The service was amazing, despite the restaurant being full. We brought a birthday cake and they cut it and plated it for us. This experience exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be back!

    Wow! What an incredible meal and I can’t believe we haven’t visited Sophia sooner. It is definitely one of our new go to places. The Ricotta and bread appetizer is an explosion of flavors with the velvety ricotta tanginess paired with the sweet honey. The dip melds with the hot garlic bread in the perfect way. The pasta dishes were some of the best I have had even compared to dishes eaten in New York Italian restaurants. The Cacio e Pepe will leave you wanting to lick the plate. We ended our meal with the airy Zeppole donuts which melt in your mouth. And to top off the meal, the service was impeccable. Love this place with its cool vibe!!!

    We took a chance on this based on the reviews and the food was amazing. The Aly pasta was really such a nice combination of flavor and spice, combined with great pasta itself. I had the meatballs and they were such a great appetizer. I would make this my first place to go when in this city for sure.
