Service and food were excellent. A real gem in the south loop.
Welcoming atmosphere with really good food! Our waiter, Miguel, was very accommodating even when people added extras to the order at the last minute, which the kitchen immediately filled. One of the specials the night we were there was a whole branzino which was cooked perfectly and served beautifully.
A favorite of ours. Food and service always great. Can be a little noisy when crowded, but meal is definitely worth it!
Our table was not ready so we were told to order drinks at the bar while waiting. However, no one was at the bar to serve us!! We finally flagged someone down after around 10 minutes and got our drinks. Never had this happen anywhere before. One guest at our table asked to take her leftover tuna dish home. They took it away and we never saw it again. They could not find it and so we left without our take home bag. Again, never had this happen before. These two events showed poor management, lack of personnel and chaos in the kitchen. The food wasn't good enough to go back after these examples of beyond horrible service.
This is a nice place in the south loop. The food and service was very good. I would recommend it.
The food was amazing and ready within minutes! The raspberry cheesecake was the 1st time i had tried it heated (ricotta vs. cream cheese). Service was great.
Took our waiters advise and ordered the veal shanks!! Unbelievable! Cant wait to go back.
Good food and the staff was very accommodating. Will definitely go back.
It's like being back in Milano. Although it seems impossible, Sofi keeps getting better and better.
If two weeks pass without a table at Sofi with family and friends I start suffering withdrawal symptoms.
This is truly authentic milanese cuisine and service by waitstaff who handle their jobs as a profession..
Food was great waiter was from Italy. The restaurant is small and very loud but other than that everything was wonderful.
Nice, quaint restaurant. Great food and great sevice.
Food was excellent. Wine selection was great. Staff was friendly and service was very quick. We would definitely go again.
We were sharing whatever dish the waiter recommended, so we worked through a good portion of the menu. The meals ranged from very good to out of this world amazing. They also let us stay beyond closing time so that we didn't feel rushed. Overall, perfect evening experience.
Excellent service and all the dishes were wonderful. Great presentation.
Fabulous. The waiter recommended dishes were tremendous, especially the lamb shank.
Food is terrific. Authentic. Delicious. Cozy. I started to recommend SOFI to all of my friends as my new 'go to' Italian restaurant as soon as I got home.
Our waiter was completely on board with our pre-theater needs and was full of warmth.
The menu was so good we wanted everything in sight. Definitely a go-to place for grown
Great downtown restaurant with authentic Italian food at a reasonable price. Everyone at the restaurant is friendly and helpful. We go with a large group pre-show and have never been late.
Everything was delicious! Classic Italian with a novel variety of dishes and specials. Met vegetarian requirements too. Great service! Looking forward to another visit.
Wonderful food. Friendly and professional service.
This was our first time her and what a wonderful experience. Every dish was spot on, and they were able to accommodate our one very picky eater! The staff knows the food and makes great suggestions. The service was quick and pleasant. Can't say enough about the quality of the dishes. We will be back!
Although we arrived 10 min early for our reservation, and they had to decline the group ahead of us due to being fully booked, they sat us at the bar with a complementary Proseco each till our space became available, which was actually at the time we had booked: a really class act! Everything from the food, service, atmosphere and value were consistent with the initial impression. As we had booked Sofi only on the basis of a write-up on Open Table and closeness to our hotel (walking distance), it turned into a real find.
The food was great and the service was fabulous - VERY nice and accommodating waiters. Will definitely be back!
It was a lovely evening and dinner was very nice.
Sofi is a gem! Salute al Cristian, Roberto, Massimo and the staff for always doing a great job. Our favorite restaurant in Printers Row without a doubt.
I come to Chicago for a business meeting every year for 4 years now and Sofi restaurant is a must stop
Service was very attentive. We had a deadline to meet to get to the ballet and they were bery accommodating. Food was very good, except I wish they would not serve the shrimp still in the shell. Ambiance was nice.
It was a surprise discovery to visit this lovely restaurant before attending the ballet. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambiance. The service was excellent.
The food was exceptional. Very intimate place and would be great for a special occasion. Service was great and we thought the prices were very reasonable.
Really wonderful pasta in a charming setting.
First time at Sofi and I will go back. Close proximity to the Auditorium Theatre. Excellent value for the restaurant week option. First course of octopus with pesto and potato cake was perfect. Second course branzino very good but too salty. Italian cheesecake with ricotta was delicious too. Definitely will try again.
Wonderful food. Pasta amazing.
Friday night date night. The food was reasonably priced for South Loop. The food and service were amazingly good. This one makes the regular dining list for us.
Consistently great food and attentive service. Great wine list.
Love Sofi! It's the perfect neighborhood spot before an evening of Jazz at Jazz Showcase.
Very authentic Italian cuisine. Well priced wines.
Massimo, our waiter was exceptional, even though it was a crowded evening! Cheers
We've been to Sofi before as it's in our neighborhood, and every time we've had outstanding dinners. The hostess and wait staff are friendly, very accommodating and efficient.
Lovely ambiance, great service and fabulous food! Will return soon!
Husband & I really enjoyed this restaurant & the food! Loved our dinner & definitely plan on going back. It's a real gem.
