We were on our way back to Miami and we decided to stop for Italian food. This restaurant is not only beautiful and romantic, but also provides excellent service from the very beginning. Nice and welcoming staff. The food options are absolutely great. The homemade pasta is splendid. The flavors are rich and not overwhelming! Additionally the service is fast.... More

What a great place for a romantic dinner. Service was excellent, greeted at the door by owner, scorted to our table by our server. Menu was full of wonderful options including several home made pastas. Wine selection is a plus and prices are reasonable for the quality and love cation.

This was the best Italian food I have had in a long time. We came in 30 minutes prior to closing and the whole staff made us feel welcome and never once rushed us to finish our meal. Aldo was a superb waiter. If I ever pass thru here again I will be sure to stop.

We love Sophia's! Another great recommendation from Francis at the Naples Grande Beach Resort. Charming restaurant. Great service, very attentive. We met the owner, Jay. Our waiter was great; he took such great care of us. He recommended a delicious Amarone to go with our dinner. The pappardelle Bolognese was so flavorful. They make the sauce with beef, veal, and...

First visit. Seated immediately (without reservation-but it was rather early). Waiter and service was very good. Food was excellent and serving size was quite large. I thought the sauce on the lasagna was very good. Only small "negative" is it did seem to be on the high end of price range for pasta. That said, it was still a very... More

I have been meaning to write a review of Sophias for quite some time. As the daughter of a large family of restaurant owners in the NYC area, my husband and I do not like many restaurants as we are often disappointed. This is not the case with Sophias!! We have never had a bad meal here as a matter... More

We went here last night for our 24th wedding anniversary as booked Sophia's as we were looking for something both special and with a known set of expectations. This restaurant simply does not disappoint. Portions are huge, but, it is quality over quantity. My better half had the veal piccata, a very good balance of flavors, and perfectly prepared. I...
