Me and my girlfriend visited this restaurant today and even though they was fully booked, still managed to fit us in, the service was excellent and the speed and quality of the food was astonishing, I would highly recommend anybody in Northampton or surrounding areas to visit this restaurant as it was wonderful place.

I have been to Sophia's on a number of occasions now and can honestly say we have had faultless customer service every time. The staff are friendly, the food is beautiful and the price is reasonable. Thank you to everyone at Sophia's for making my brothers 18TH Birthday meal so lovely. We will be back shortly!

This is a busy restaurant, great staff, great food, great atmosphere. I like the simple wine list, the mushrooms mama mia starter, the choice of a simple or sophisticated main course depending on the occasion but most of all the very friendly, well-organised staff.

Dining on Monday night we have 100% enjoyed that time. Very friendly and open but not pushy staff, distinguished owner, beautifully balanced food and excellent pinot grigio in price of house wine made that night unforgettable. We have been first time there but definitely not last one.

Went for a pre-theatre meal on Saturday and really enjoyed our experience. The food was very tasty and nicely presented and the portions were just the right amount. The staff were all really friendly and welcoming and we couldn't fault the service we received - the best we have experienced for a long time. We will definitely return next time... More
