Great food and ambiance. One of the best Italian restaurants I’ve been to. The kale salad and scallops were delicious. I will definitely be back the next time I visit New Orleans!

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.

Highest quality cuisine, great selections. Love the kale salad and pizza marguerita, out of this world with Sophia Loren looking down over all of us.

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.

The staff went above and beyond to provide for us despite the table not yet being ready in part due to limited capacity. The meal and service were outstanding and I would highly recommend to anyone.

We went for a low key girl's night, and it was perfect! No one in our party had been before, and we all ended up loving it! The staff and management were accommodating and prompt, great service. We ordered appetizers to share; the shrimp toast, olives, and the commandatore pizza. All of them were delicious! The shrimp toast is an absolute MUST. Out of the group of 5, we all ordered either the squid ink pasta or the alla vodka for our main course. Both were fantastic! The squid ink was more of an adventurous choice, something a little different but absolutely wonderful. The alla vodka was the perfect comforting Italian food, yet not overly heavy. To top off the meal we shared an order of the zeppole... MOUTHWATERING. Obviously, I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion and I cannot wait to return. Also, really lovely refreshing cocktail selection.

Overall the concept and food is amazing. I do think that the portions could be a tad bit bigger and the steak dish could use a real nice sauce to go with it in addition to the butter. The inner crust of the pizza could be a tab bit more crunchy as well. Overall Sofia has gained a customer for life.!!

We went for a birthday celebration, and Sofia did not disappoint! They worked with me to push back my reservation to a later time, the service was great, food amazing, and they even let us stay as late as we wanted without feeling rushed! The ambiance was a major plus. We ordered appetizers to share. I was impressed by the variation of cocktails on the menu-spritzers, tequila drinks, wines etc. I highly recommend the ricotta, and shrimp toast appetizers, alla vodka pasta, and the gulf shrimp!

Everything was great, upscale vibe and decor, great for special events or a cool date night. Only slight knock was service, because my impression is that he was rushed. We had to ask for refills and the table wasn’t always cleared right away. Only reason was because we had high expectations at that price point.

The service and food were extremely good. However, this restaurant is not adhering to social distancing guidelines. It was well over three-quarters full and mask guidelines were not being followed by customers, though the staff were wearing masks. I hope the management realizes that wearing masks does not protect the wearer from contracting COVID, but does help keep the virus from being passed on. Please protect your staff as well as the diners from those who walk around the restaurant without masks.
