Tapping into true Italian tastes, the menu starts with a selection of antipasti including a citrus salad and grilled octopus, and a plentiful selection of crudo. Mains feature fresh pasta, pesce and locally sourced carne, with a traditional, Italian heritage Chianina florentine steak.

The cocktail program is a refreshing medley of signature drinks with an Italian twist. Expertly crafted by mixologist Nishan Nepulangoda, cocktails are enhanced by regional herbs and fresh in-house cordials, and named in tribute to the country’s vast geography and pop culture history. The wine list features many vintages and an extensive selection of true Italian wines rare to the local dining scene.

    The experience was great and the service was great. Missed out on the Ravioli because it wasn’t available but will get it next time. I appreciate that the portions remain generous for this price point as we are seeing many establishments controlling rising food costs by giving the guest less which is a short term solution and short sided. Keep up the great work. Thank you.

    Great food - as always. The staff works to ensure the menu is properly explained, while giving great recommendations. Sofia’s is usually the highlight of our stay near Yorkville.

    The food was good. I had the pancakes that were excellent. Coffee didnt come. When it did it was cold and milk was curdled. I had to ask for the coffee 3 times. Beautiful pattio and horrible music. Sofia's has the potential of being a gem however the music was horrible and loud even though the patio was lovely. It's hard to enjoy brunch if the coffee doesnt get served. Very disappointed

    The experience we had with the service was probably one of the worse I have ever experienced. From the lack of attention, completely being dismissed when you want to order more food and drinks to forgetting part of the order. The service was quite basic and recreational which certainly does not fit my profile and the type of clients I normally bring to restaurants. Very disappointing to say the least.

    We were a party of 6 people. We ordered 2 Gamberti and they weren’t good at all. There was a strong aftertaste and they weren’t juicy at at. They truly tasted as though they were left over food from a week ago! Moving on… we also ordered 3 Costata Di Manzo which is the 16oz Ribeye. All three came out extra salty. So much salty that one of the people eating it couldn’t finish. Overall it truly was a horrible dinning experience… something I wouldn’t expect from an establishment like Sofia and for sure something I would never expect from a place that the bill comes to $800.

    It was a very disappointing experience from the start! When we arrived, we were sat far from everyone else at the restaurant. We ordered scallops and zucchini flowers as apps. This was probably the ‘best’ part of the meal. For the main, we had the $90 steak and their ravioli with butter poached lobster along with sides of mushroom and broccolini. All of this was served at room temperature!!! And it doesn’t atop there, neither of our mains were seasoned properly! Mashed potatoes did not have ANY salt while the steak was over salted! The ravioli was undercooked to the point they were crunchy! Needless to say, we won’t be returning!

    Brunch is amazing! Get the bottomless mimosas! Seems pricey, but it is totally worth it. The passion ginger mimosa is especially delicious! Service is fantastic. We never had to wait for a drink, or our food order long at all and all of the servers are super friendly. Food is tasty with good portions. All in all can’t wait to go back next time I’m in Toronto!

    I absolutely love this place and i am there practically every weekend. What has happened to your portion of pancakes? Last time I was there they gave me 3 TINY pancakes and the price still remains the same. When I asked the hostess she said that it is because most people cannot finish a larger portion, but why should I pay the same price for such little? Very disappointing. Taste and quality was great no complaints there. Seemed dry with no sauce so I asked for some extra which they provided.

    It was our first brunch at Sofia which has a great front patio, as well as very large bar and dining areas. We started with Bellinis (which were perfect as was the entire brunch drinks menu). My friend had the burger with potatoes and I had a pepperoni pizza with burrata. We both enjoyed our meals, but in a city with a lot of really great Italian restaurants, I think our server Lauren and the decor was better than the food. The ladies room had an attendant that popped in and out as it was crowded in there with 20-somethings taking videos of themselves in front of the full-length mirror in the ladies toilet. Insert impatient eye roll here. I will go back for a patio dinner before 2022 summer dining ends.
