We enjoyed the fresh ricotta appetizer and two pasta dishes, as well as a cocktail and a mock tail. Everything was great and the service couldn’t have been better. Will definitely be back!

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.

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.

Everything was very fresh and had excellent flavor. We had the meatballs which were far from ordinary. The squid ink pasta and gulf fish were superb. Loved the chocolate torte with pistachios and pistachio gelato. Good wine and excellent service. I will go back

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.

We love Sofia and go there fairly often. I have to say that it was the first time we've ever been disappointed in anything. I had the fish, which was excellent. Our teenager had a pizza, which was delicious, and then my husband had the steak. There was nothing wrong with it, but it lacked seasoning. The service was great and we had a nice evening. The only thing was the lack of seemingly any seasoning on the steak. It certainly won't keep us from going back though.

Very fresh and creative food. We really enjoyed the fresh breads, pastas, and the pizza. The spicy pizza is very spicy though! Incredibly fresh and tasty. Very good wine and cocktail list as well.

Wonderful food and service!! We sat outside and it was nice! A little breeze was blowing which helped!! We enjoyed everything, the cocktails, salad, ricotta dip, spring veggie risotto and spicy pizza. And it was spicy but we like it that way!! We will definitely go back and so thankful to have the option to sit outside until this pandemic is over.

The service was slow. The place was as loud as it was pre-Covid. It was a little unsettling to see a large table in the center of the restaurant with ten young people crowded together without any social distancing. The food was good.
