Best experience ever - Gabriel was a great host. He kept topping up our bottomless mimosas. Made us feel welcome. Food was finger-licking delicious. We had the ricotta pancakes! Mouthwatering. Will definitely go back!

Fun restaurant with a great upbeat atmosphere. The food was fantastic and not your traditional Italian. The craft cocktails were amazing. Elizabeth was a fun and friendly server. Definitely will return.

Fantastic drinks,food, and service. We had the meatballs and shrimp toast to start. So delicious and loved the spicy peppers on the toast. A really unique item on an Italian menu and would order again. We also had the squid ink pasta, which I ordinarily order from another popular Italian restaurant in the area, but this was done with a lighter taste and I enjoyed it even more. Bravo! The margherita pizza was wonderful with lots of yummy sauce. I also suggest an order of garlic bread. It was amazing. My custom order spritz was light and refreshing (lemon mint) and the Barbera wine was lovely. Our server, Elizabeth was wonderful and even though super busy, was both attentive and really helpful with navigating the menu. I definitely recommend and will be back.

Went to dinner with family, sat outside because the weather was beautiful. I’d gotten take out from Sofia before, and it was delicious! This time we dined in (or technically outside), but experience was just as great!

Josh, our server, was excellent. Food was absolutely incredible, from the schrimp toast to squid ink pasta to the scallops. I rated the value as good because it is pricey. I had the scallops, which were delicious, but only received 3. Scallop entrees should have between 4-5, especially if it's one of the higher-priced items.

The restaurant was beautiful, wonderfully decorated with images of Sophia Loren. The food was fantastic. Unfortunately, all of this was undermined by a wait staff , including the hostess, that can best be described as indifferent. They we’re very detached and did nothing to make the experience enjoyable.

There are too many good places to eat in New Orleans where the staff adds to the dining experience ; hopefully this was the exception and not the rule.

I would recommend Sofia, but with, no pun intended, reservations.

My daughter and I had dinner on our recent trip to NOLA from Tampa. The food was good. We ordered the Ala Vodka, Bolognese, and Rib Eye. My biggest complaint is that the table was way too small. Even for dining for two, it was barely big enough for our beverages and anything else.

Great sharable choices. The bread that came with the shrimp entree was to die for, and the shrimp itself was tasty. Really enjoyed the Bolognese pasta as well. A few outdoor tables, but plenty of spacing indoors as well.

Food and ambiance were good. Took 30 minutes to get our first round of drinks. Server seemed cavalier (or drunk) about taking care of us. Every round took a while along with a retort from the server about us complaining about his timing. Really disappointed.

Sofia's is great delicious food! Interesting menus. The pizza has the right crust. Its thin crispy and not too wet. My favorite type of pizza. The toppings are creative and tasty.
The meatballs are perfect and flavorful. I've been five times and will continue to go.
