Description: Soffritto Italian Grill is an authentic family-owned Italian restaurant...
Soffritto Italian Grill is an authentic family-owned Italian restaurant located at 1130 Capitol Trail in Newark, DE. Since we opened our doors in 2005, Soffritto’s wealth of experience and exquisite dishes have brought them great recognition and acclaim locally, as well as internationally.To fully enjoy their experience at Soffritto Italian Grill, our guests dine in a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere that creates an ambience of a home away from home. Our Tuscan stone and stucco exterior along with our wood burning fireplace welcome guests into the restaurant. Murmurs from our waterfall and authentic Italian music coupled with the delicious aromas of our award-winning Italian cuisine provide a sense of comfort during their stay. Soffritto’s name derives from the very thing that is most important to us: food. Soffritto comes from the Italian verb soffriggere, which means to brown or fry slightly. Many Italian recipes begin with a soffritto, a lightly fried mixture of onions, celery, and carrot, sautéed in olive oil, thus imparting their flavors to any ingredient that follows. Soffritto prides itself on its innovative family recipes and passion that goes into every individual dish. They believe the key to high quality food begins with a commitment to only the freshest of ingredients, and ensure that every ingredient is hand-picked by our experienced chefs.From traditional coastal Italian dishes to new and inspired flavors, Soffritto aims at meeting every customers needs and desires. Every dish is prepared to order, with an emphasis on taste and presentation. We are notorious for our homemade ingredients, including fresh homemade mozzarella, focaccia bread, linguini, and gnocchi. Soffritto receives great acclaim for their acute awareness to different customers’ dining preferences, including our gluten-free menu and abundance of vegetarian alternatives. We strive for quality and distinction. At Soffritto, you will find an attentive and professional staff who puts the customers’ needs first. Whether you choose to come to Soffritto for a birthday, a romantic getaway, a business meeting, or just to catch up with friends, our staff will provide you with the utmost level of professional service and courtesy.Our staff has a reputation for their energy, skill, and passion. We have committed time into training our staff members individually and in entirety to be attentive, efficient, and complaisant. With their vast knowledge of the menu items, our staff is full of suggestions and recommendations to ensure you have just the meal you’ve been craving.

Our group of three fathers, wives and four children, enjoyed the responsive service at the grill. We were seated in a private dining room and served by two waiters. The restaurant had a special menu for the day, but we were able to order our favorites from the regular menu. Service was accommodating oif our many special requests. The meals... More

Always enjoy the variety of homemade Italian food at Soffritto's. All entrees are made to order and the chef always has intriguing specials. A little more expensive than the $$ rating would indicate but worthwhile visiting.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten at in a very long time. We booked the special room for a graduation party but had lunch at the restaurant (to try the food) and was NOT disappointed. Every dish that we had, from the wonderful delectable bruschetta through dessert was absolutely AMAZING. The owner, Giovanni, makes everyone... More

I ordered the lasagna and it was so small of a piece and it cost $17 and my date got the fettuccine Alfredo with chicken and the chicken was under cooked and the sauce was bland. I had a glass of Kendall Jackson and normally cost around $6 but at this place it was $11. The food was not good... More

Let me state that I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at Soffritos. The food & service was excellent. I would have preferred more selection on the menu, and I thought the prices were very high relative to what you are getting. I mean this is a pasta dish here. If money doesn't matter to you, of course this is a terrific... More
