    I am an Italian from the NorthEast where we have exceptional Italian food. I was pleasantly surprised at at how amazing the food was. Cacio Pepe was spot on. And Ricoota dip was equally as good. And the pizza was spot on.

    First time here. Drinks were tasty. Beef carpaccio and side broccolini were great. Pizza was flavorful but incredibly greasy (dripping) and could have been cooked a bit longer. Would try it out again.

    deliverance of food and drinks was spotty. drinks ordered one delivered quickly, the other delivered much later after appetizers served, same problem at end of main course when dessert served and 15 minutes went by before limoncello was served.

    We had dinner at Sofia on our final night of our New Orleans vacation. It was by far our favorite meal of the trip and one that we will remember for quite a while. Our server, Samantha, was phenomenal. Her recommendations were perfect, the pacing of the meal was wonderful, and the entire experience was unmatched during our stay. I usually refrain from leaving detailed reviews, to avoid being caught in the prisoner of the moment mindset, but this evening’s meal and service were second to none. Thank you Sofia and thank you Samantha, for the perfect conclusion to our stay in New Orleans.

    I have Celiac disease and when I said that I was GF, they instantly asked if it was Celiac. When I tell you this question is worth it's weight in Gold, it is. The pizza was amazing, dessert, coffee and the pasta also yummy. This is the best GF crust, I have found in Nola. I do think the pasta was a little over priced for the amount you get but it was delicious. Our waiter was amazing and the greeter was so nice. Will definitely be back!! Loved the music, volume.

    Food was excellent, especially the ricotta appetizer but under no circumstances let them seat you outside in front of the restaurant. Zero ambiance and too much traffic whizzing by while you are trying to eat. I get wanting to add some additional seating but this was not a good experience.
