Came here for my girlfriends birthday and had some excellent food at a reasonable price! The dessert was amazing - one of the best cheesecakes I've had! Will definitely return!

Thank you for a great birthday dinner. Service fantastic and food superb. Waiting staff made the whole family welcome. All the food we ordered was great and they made a special bowl of food for my young daughter that wasn't on the menu. Thanks for a great birthday and for getting the whole restaurant to sing happy birthday. Cheers

We have been to Sophia's on numerous occasions and it simply is the best Italian restaurant in town. We always go as a couple and the food is of an unfailingly high standard. This last visit, however, was with a group of 18 friends. Even then, with countless different order combinations, the staff, food, service and quality were superb. Our... More

was taken there by some friends and was very impressed with the good food. The only little thing I didn't like and which spoilt it for me was the fact that the tables were too close together, and that limited the privacy of your conversations and I noticed that people were very guarded with how they spoke. Intimate? I don't... More

With our favourite Northampton restaurant having closed, we looked for somewhere new to celebrate our anniversary. I'm so glad we found Sophia's and quite ashamed that I knew nothing of it. We chose to eat from the £17.50 fixed price menu. We started with the smoked salmon and the tortellini in bolognese sauce, which were both delicious. Main courses were... More

I decided to take my partner here whilst working in Northampton; the reviews looked astonishing and my partner's favourite cuisine is Italian. We were greeted by John (the owner) who was ever so friendly. He couldn't quite fit us in straight away (we hadn't booked) so he seated us upstairs and drinks were brought up to us. We only had...

As a group of friends and work colleagues we always go to Sophia's every Christmas and have a wonderful evening, however this year was disappointing. It seemed the seating arrangements were more cramped than usual, and most of our group were squashed between the table and wall! The food of course was excellent and the service was as good as...
