Good food, nice atmosphere. Service a bit slow but could be due to lack of staff after pandemic. Would definitely go back

I didn’t realize the noise level was so loud when we walked in. Only 2 meatballs for an appetizer and I had to google the ingredients in anything that looked like it would be something I might like.

The Ricotta Dip and Lamb Ragu appetizers were wonderful, and the Pizza Margherita simple but perfectly seasoned.

The first time we went the food was OUTSTANDING. This time, though I know menu items have changed out to keep relevant, it wasnt as tasty. The amazing ricotta dip tasted a little blander, not sure why... and same with the pizzas. They listed all these amazing ingredients with layers of interesting flavors but it wasnt expressed in the taste, they were kind of bland and we didnt get the exciting flavors like fennel, leeks or the nutty cheese. The shrimp was FANTASTIC as it was the first time. We also tried the sardines and that was a whole experience on top of being an amazing app! Great job with that! Cocktails and wine wonderful as well.

We loved the nice stroll from our hotel in the French quarter. It was great to have a change of scenery and slow down a bit. We started with the Kale salad and ricotta cheese spread. Both dishes where delicious and complimented each other well. Our second course was the Campenella pasta dish. The sauce was creamy goodness. The peas provided a pleasant pop of flavor and the pancetta gave a bit of saltiness to the dish. Our second course was sea scallops (my husband chose this as we were sharing dishes). I am not a big fan of scallops in general but he assured me that these were tasty. We finished our meal with the budino pudding desert. It was quite substantial and nice and chocolaty. The perfect end to a delicious meal. Our server was professional, polite and attentive without crowding us. Overall great experience.

This place was a gem of a find. It was by far my most enjoyable cuisine experience in NOLA. The food and experience was such a treat I requested to compliment the chef. She came out and introduced herself - lovely young women with a passion for cuisine. Sofia’s pulled off every aspect of the dining experience. 100% support this local restaurant. I can’t wait to go back🕺🕺

We arrived in time for our reservation & had to wait 25 mins for our table. We were not seated at a high table as per our reservation. The atmosphere was very loud & it seemed they were not staffed well. It looked as if there were only 2 waiters rushing around trying to take care of all the tables. We waited a considerable amount of time to place our order, so we decided to just order coffee & desert. When we got our coffee it was cold & we had to send it back. It was a disappointment as we live across the lake & have always had a very good experience eating here. Perhaps it was just an off night or perhaps something has changed in management.

We had several courses and all were very delicious, but portions were small, and not suitable for sharing, which seemed odd because sharing was recommended. We had to sit outdoors, which made it difficult to assess ambiance. Space outside was limited, so while normally we enjoy eating al fresco, the outdoor space was more overflow than an experience. But we would recommend this to anyone seeking a nice dining experience and a change of pace from typical New Orleans fare.

We were a group of 10, with dietary restrictions which were kindly accommodated, and the dishes were divine. Pizzas, pasta ala vodka, roast chicken, pork belly with greens, mixed green salad and to-die-for ricotta (with gf pita) were all top of class. We loved the shared cocktails and especially the beautiful glass vessel they are served in. Wine list has variety, and we appreciated the help by choosing the best for our group. We LOVE Sofia!

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food was amazing! I was with 3 other people and we split the Gulf Shrimp entree (the sauce and bread are phenomenal), the alla vodka pasta (which is spicy but in a good way) and the commandatore pizza. All were exceptional and delicious. We each had the basic spritz drink which was lovely. The ambiance and service were excellent. I would recommend over and over again and I will most definitely be back to enjoy again.

We had a great experience for brunch. Two of us got pizza (one breakfast pizza [amazing], one Commandetore [quite good, savory, but not quite as good as the breakfast one), and then the others got avocado toast, shrimp and polenta, steak and frites, and a standard. Everything was delicious. Also had a boozy coffee with bourbon and a bunch of us got bottomless mimosas. Really, everything was delicious. Service was great and they kept topping off the bottomless mimosas which were light on the orange juices which was nice. The place itself is cute, nice, open, and feels very modern. Definitely will keep Sofia in mind next time we are considering where to go for brunch
