                                                  Would come back just for dessert. Flourless Chocolate torta cake was the highlight of the meal.

                                                  The food was amazing. The three of us shared the lobster toast and the lamb shoulder. There was plenty of food and it was delicious! For dessert, we shared the olive oil pistachio cake and the panna cotta. Wow! What a great finish to an amazing meal. We'll be back.

                                                  Last minute brunch reservation for 8. All the staff we encountered during our meal were wonderful. We had 3 children in our party and the server did a great job keeping them busy. Food was great too. Will definitely return next time we are in town and will recommend to family and friends.

                                                  Everything was pretty normal. Service was decent. Server didn’t talk to us at all which was a bummer. I love a server with a little personality and umph. Wasn’t bad though. Food came out in great timing and was tasty. Eggs were a little too salty. We sat outside which was nice and quiet. Inside seemed lovely. Not great for kids more like a girls date.

                                                  Fantastic creative new menu - had the beets garlic appetizer followed by a simple yet invigorating caprese creole tomato pizza. Will have to try the lobster toast and others!

                                                  Service was very slow, could be due to sitting outside. Alla Vodka was entirely too salty and pizza took forever to come out, when it finally did it was cold. Overall disappointing for a restaurant we were eager to try.

                                                  So glad we got to dine at Sofia. The place was packed at 9:30 pm on a Saturday night and there were no tables available inside so we had to sit outside. It was hot and humid and critters were out. If you don't like bugs (I won't disclose what type) jumping on you or your food definitely sit inside. After an incident happened, our waiter moved us inside and we felt much more relaxed. We ordered the ricotta as an appetizer, the vodka pasta and the lamb ragu pasta and all were absolutely delish. Our server (Zach) gave us the best service which really made our experience memorable. I highly recommend Sofia's and can't wait to go back on my next visit.

                                                  Best pasta ever!!!!! We tried 4 different kinds and all were excellent. Meatballs and carrots appetizers were excellent. Smart waiter. Outside sitting is quieter than inside.

                                                  We sat outside and enjoyed listening to the music and the people watching. The food and service were excellent. I would ask management to address the sidewalk in front of the restaurant as we saw many people trip and someone in a wheelchair fall because of it.

                                                  Friends recommended, and we would definitely recommend! We shared the insalata misto - lovely dressing. My husband had the lamb ragu, and I had the Rucola pizza so good! For dessert, he had the vanilla gelato, and I had zepole (ricotta doughnuts), absolutely delicious!

                                                  Good food - enjoyed the pizza with broccoli and sausage, meatballs, and ricotta. I thought it was all great. It is also a good place to go with kids. They will make the kiddos cheese or pepperoni pizza. Our 8 year old liked all the adult food. The shirley temple was missing cherries which was a disappointment, but the rose & cocktail we ordered hit the spot.

We started with a bottle of the Pasgua Rose wine which is delicious! We ordered the carrot appetizer which was phenomenal, The black squid ink pasta with crawfish is to die . The lamb ragu was savory and bursting with flavor . The meal was a treat to our taste buds . This restaurant will be a staple for me from here on in . Exceptional !

                                                  Despite a large crowd service was great! Lamb ragu so good, topped by the pizza margherita with mushrooms
