Our first dinner in Ireland on vacation. Very good food. Owner picked a beautiful wine for us. Several tables have beautiful views. Casual to formal. Really nice dining experience.

Brilliant, little restaurant, the food is fantastic, the choice of wine and drinks is good. The service was spot on. Not on the main routes in town, but worth seeking this out for a great meal.

I visited Derry and I was looking for a nice restaurant to eat in and this was a treat! This restaurant has a wide selection of wines which taste amazing. The staff were so welcoming and Claudio was such a gentleman. Absolutely amazing food and great deserts. Glad I visited to get the taste of a real italian resturant!

I visited this restaurant for dinner recently on a Saturday evening with my husband. The ambience is very nice and the staff were all very efficient and helpful. Although the food was good and cooked very well, I personally felt it was a little overpriced. I ordered pasta for my main course, and whilst large portions are often intimidating, there... More

Having phoned prior to booking, and being reassured that the restaurant could offer gluten free options on the menu, including for the pasta dishes, I was very disappointed on arrival to be met with disdain upon requesting information on the options available.

I had the butternut squash risotto ( perfectly cooked to just over al dente) and rabbit fillet in calvados sauce (so good I nearly asked... More

Really great service and food at La Sosta. Could well be a hidden gem in Derry. Small authentic Italian restaurant with very attentive welcoming staff.
