    While the ambiance is better than Amelia's, the food is not. I have eaten here several times over a period of years and every time I leave wondering why I made the reservation. Its just not food that tastes great. It's Ok , not horrible, but just not quite right. For example, the calamari and lamb were both overcooked. The calamari was serving cool, not hot, but had been fried too long and was too chewy and too crispy. The spaghetti and meatballs were B- OK. Supposed to have ricotta in the center, but was the size of a petit pea so not worth mentioning it has ricotta in the center. The sauce tasted good, buy not enough of it. The lamb was charred on the outside and well done on the inside when medium well was the order. Server was very nice and thorough. Where are all the good chefs working these days?

    At first the hosts attempted to sit us upstairs in a private party area… where there was a loud private party. They shouldn’t have done this. Once they moved us downstairs, at our request, everything was great. They should not sit people upstairs. It’s a very casual, loud atmosphere that is very different from the downstairs ambience.

    We visited for a birthday celebration. Food was exceptionally good. Service exceptionally attentive and warm. They comped the birthday person a dessert drink, which was lovely. This is a favorite restaurant of our family, which consists of both picky and adventurous eaters. It exceeded our expectations.

    Canolis and expresso were excellent way to end a delicious dinner. Caesar salad was fresh and ample size and not too much dressing. We both enjoyed our entrees. Relaxing and memorable anniversary dinner for a Wednesday night. Our server was personable and attentive but not intrusive.

    We love Sofia's and dine here often. We have hosted family celebrations in the private room and the food and service equally great. We recently rented out the top floor bar for a school event and the 40 guests raved about the evening. So we highly recommend Sofia for everything. Management outstanding (Alexandra) and the wait staff is consistently accomodating and excellent (Diane especially). Enjoy!

    We were a party of 5 who had to change the time and the hostess was quick to help us. We had a round table at my request in the original reservation ,they were unable to accommodate because of the time change but the found a better alternative ,a 6 person table in a semi private room It was perfect The food was very good although I had the chicken saltimbocca and I thought the sauce was more of a dark brown glaze which didn’t resemble any marsala I’ve had. I didn’t complain as I figured that the dish wasn’t to my taste but it was edible The appetizers, desserts and the other main meals were excellent. The staff were efficient and knowledgeable as always at Sophia’s .

    Our server was not overly enthusiastic. We asked her several questions about the menu and she had limited knowledge. Further, I had requested a dessert be brought to the table to celebrate my wife’s birthday. It was overlooked. I requested after other desserts were ordered and served. Then the server went and looked at reservation notes. Finally, a mysterious ‘hospitality fee’ appeared on my bill. Although it was only $9 of which my bill was $350, I questioned it and was told it is for the cooks. Since when do patrons pay cook’s salaries. It was removed upon my request.
