From the moment you enter Sophia's John makes you feel welcome and relaxed. The traditional Italian setting is complimented with an extensive Italian menu offering Traditional a la carte Italian dishes as well as many pasta and pizza dishes. The wine list is extensive and we had a lovely chablis. The king prawn and the avocado and prawn starters were... More

Lovely dinner, wonderful wine, complimented with a nice atmosphere and personal service from owner John. The prawns were amazing, and the home made Tiramisu outstanding

We managed to get the last table available. The service was very friendly and accommodating. House red was good. Food very nice. All in all a very pleasant experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Sophia's for a lovely relaxed evening.

Visited on Thursday March 19 as a treat during our week off and not disappointed. Service and food first class - my wife and I shared crab cakes and mussels for starters (beware of plentiful garlic in the mussels dish if you're not over keen). For mains, I had the fillet steak and my wife went for the prime sirloin... More

No-one could regard Northampton as "foodie heaven" or a haven of gastronomic delight, and so to find an honest-to-goodness family restaurant serving traditional Italian fare with friendliness and enthusiasm is delightful. A good choice of starters (the Carpaccio is especially recommended, and we could hear more being hammered flat in the kitchen whilst we ate!) is supported by range of... More

The two of us came here the night before we ran Silverstone Half Marathon and really loved it! Service was slow, but he apologised, and we were in no hurry. It was busy, and there was a party of 40+ people upstairs so understandable. Plus it was clear all the food was cooked to order which was great to know... More
