Thank you Sophia's. you served me the best sea bass I've eaten outside Italy. The meal was delicious, and your service was friendly and welcoming. It was our anniversary and you made the evening for us. Extra marks for enquiring if we were driving before offering us a complimentary glass of brandy. I thought you were asking whether you could...

I went to Sophia's on Tuesday evening for a birthday celebration. It is not the first time I have eaten here and again the food and service was excellent. I had the set menu meal and it was excellent, especially the mushroom risotto starter...can't wait to go again..Thank you Sophia's...

I have experienced consistently beautiful food at Sophia's on 2 occasions. They offer a three course menu for about £17 and the quality is excellent! The house wine is very good too. After trying to go to some chain restaurants in the town centre only to be turned away. Sophia's made every effort to fit us in and we are... More

We visited Sophia's enroute to the train station (to get to BHX for our flight to go on holiday) and had 3 suitcases which we were worried would cause issues when trying to find a restaurant that could accommodate us and our baggage but this was not an issue for Sophia's. We were made more than welcome without booking and... More

Great food with great service, what more could you ask for. I've eaten here a number of times and every time has been special, the food is full of flavour and looks to good to eat. The staff are friendly and the whole restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere. This restaurant is a must if your ever in Northampton.

Heard that this restaurant had been renovated so decided to revisit with friends. There were four of us and we seated at a table and at the same time were told we had to squeeze in to allow the waiting staff to pass by, we then requested to be moved to another table that we didn't have to squeeze into...

Sophia's is a nice restaurant and, having been there a few years ago, we didn't hesitate to invite some friends of ours for a meal. As an Italian family, we know what genuine Italian cuisine is like. Sadly, from the incorrect spellings on the menu to the quality of the food, we have to say, we left a little disappointed.... More

My fiancé found Sophia's online a couple of years ago and we've never looked back! The food is fantastic, good portions, cooked fresh and tastes delicious. Prices are perfectly acceptable especially for the standard of food. I've introduced friends and family to this restaurant as I enjoy it so much and the staff are always attentive but not too pushy,... More
