    Our waiter didn’t seem too interested in us. It look quite awhile for someone to come with water. The food was great. There also is only a single restroom with a single stall so there is always a wait.

    We had to wait long before we could order . After the appetizers and entrees came at about the same time. The water was not cold . The food was tasty but very small portions which makes it expensive for what you really get .

    Very average experience (and was expecting more). Service wasn't great (were able to seat us in the section we reserved, waiter didn't take our beverage order and went straight to food - seemed very rushed/like they were trying to flip the table. Food wasn't bad - but the overall experience was just very mediocre.

    It was a mixture of good food bad food. I ordered pasta with a Bolognese sauce and there was no meat in it. However the squid we ordered was done perfectly. I just feel for $26 you should have some meat in your sauce if they advertise it.

    Easy to get a reservation. Food was fairly bland for being chicken Marsala, and linguine w/clams. Best way to describe service was non-caring or non-attentive. The gentleman filling water and cleaning plates was the star. Way to go Alex! Nice place, but would not recommend a dinner there unless you're not used to much.

    Great value for lunch pre fixe menu for $25! Only slight complaint is that the tiramisu was just a little too soaked in liquor so I couldn’t finish it but it was still delicious.

    The setting and location is great. We sat outside, ordered a pizza and a bucatini Caio e Pepe. It looked like a child’s portion. Food was fine, nothing stellar or horrible but the prices were crazy. Even the $16. glasses of wine were child’s size, maybe 5 ounces.

    Reserved the 3-course lunch experience, but we decided to order from the regular menu when we sat down. I ordered a bottle of wine and the waiter cut his hand while trying to open the bottle. He didn’t wipe the blood off his hand, and continued trying to open the bottle while smearing blood on it. My husband asked if he could go get another bottle and the waiter asked if he could just wipe the bottle down. We asked again, and he went back & forth with us that the blood was “just on the wrapper”. We insisted on the bottle change and a new waiter came over to help us. We ordered food with him and he continued to serve us throughout the meal. We ordered the crispy gnocchi, whipped ricotta bruschetta, bucatini, and the crispy chicken sandwich. The food was great and tasty. We also ordered a bottle of the Gavi di Gavi, and husband ordered beer and bourbon.

    The food and drinks were pretty good, although my steak was VERY rare when I requested MR. Our waiter seemed like he was new and overwhelmed and didn’t really check on us much. We would grab bussers for refills and the service manager for the check because at one point he never returned. 3:5 stars because my friends liked the bartender.

    Exceptional quality food and a short menu make this place an excellent Italian restaurant. Service was not at its best because it was a busy Saturday night, but our server had the best attitude, so he made us feel happy after the dining experience. The pasta that we ordered was perfectly cooked, and the size of the serving was the appropriate We will visit this place again

    Two of the four in our group ordered soup. The soup was good but wasn't warm enough, and then it took too long to deliver the main courses (which was awkward because the others in the party had to wait for 2 of us to eat our soup, then wait again). The room wasn't full, so the poor timing was disappointing. My Salad Nicoise was generous and beautiful. I heard it was a new addition to the menu. I would recommend Via Sophia for their happy hour. They have beautiful pizzas that are worth sharing!!

    Little reappointed that host declined my request for a table in the shade. The tables in the shade remained large empty during my meal. Would have been an easy request to accommodate. I enjoyed my meal. The staff could have been more attentive.

    Place was lovely, but loud. Asked server questions about order. Spoke to us as if we were idiots, arguing questions we had regarding food. When food arrived, was different than explanation we had been given. Food was not great and expensive. Drinker server was wonderful. Main server and who brought food were awful. Do not recommend.

    This was the worst food I have ever been served in DC in the 36 years I have lived here. Every single dish for my party of 6 was literally inedible. From foul-tasting sauces on pastas to stale-tasting lasagne bits and croquets to a calamari dish that almost tasted poisonous. To make matters worse, the prices were exorbitant, ie. $28 for pappardelle pasta, $26 for fettucine, etc. My family and I are stilling talking about how awful the food was and the service slow, although the server was pleasant. You should remove this restaurant from your offers or it will ruin your reputation for reliable selections.

    Mothers Day Brunch The food was acceptable but the service was inattentive. I ordered bottomless mimosas and the first one was water downed and had to ask for 3 more before I gave up. The other server at the table helped us quite a bit. The last straw was when the manager told our server to go take care of other newly seated guests right after my server took my check so we waited for awhile. Then the server brought two glasses of mimosas at the end but we just left them. I will not be coming back to Via Sophia.
