Visited here for a friends birthday meal and they couldn't have done more to make it feel special. I had the ham hock terrine to start which was lovely followed by the veal Marsala, the sauce was gorgeous, I would have personally liked the veal to have been slightly pink but that's just me. Everything else was faultless.

Food- STUNNING service - FANTASTIC Nothing more to say than an exceptional restaurant. Very welcoming & attentive staff. The owner is clearly passionate about his customers & insisted on taking our order. Couldn't ask for anything more.

One of the best places I've eaten in Northampton. The fish dishes are always cooked to perfection. I'd recommend the beef carpaccio as a starter it's simple but so good it just dissolved on my tongue. The veal (rose) is cooked at the table which makes it an occasion. Really good meal and perfect for an occasion.

Came here with some friends, food fresh and tasty, but nothing particularly special, portions I felt were also quite small. Service was prompt and staff friendly, had a nice atmosphere too (we were seated downstairs) would come back if spending an evening in town.

After reading all of the great reviews we thought we'd give it a go but found that it doesn't really warrant the hype that's built up around it. The starters were nice (beef carpaccio & ham hock terrine) but nothing special. My pasta for mains was fine and my boyfriends lamb was cooked perfectly but neither of us spotted on... More

What I loved was the atmosphere! It was quaint, warm and friendly. We felt very welcome by all. Food was magnifico. Very delicious pasta and garlic bread. We had help with choosing wine and was recommended the most wonderful French white wine! So good! We loved it because it was old fashioned service that stands above the rest! Adrianna

I took a group of 6 to Sophia's on Wednesday night and from the moment we entered the restaurant we felt we were in the Mediterranean and not Northampton! The food & service was excellent and we were not rushed spending 3 hours over our first but not last visit to Sophia's. Excellent food.

My husband booked Sophia's for our anniversary dinner. From arrival the staff were attentive and friendly, we had been saved a lovely table and they had even put balloons on the table! The food was wonderful, and we can't wait to return!
