The food was very good but the service was totally lacking. Sophia's was not very busy so there was no excuse for very slow service. It seemed like the waiter was doing us a favor by serving us.

One of the worst. Waiter was polite but scared of management. They do not like children. They did not bring food for 2 hours and when we said bring the check for what drank the food magically arrived in to go containers, one meal incorrect, for $180.00. Can not comment on the food as we did not get a chance... More

I think it best for me to respond to this review as I do not respond to many; however when a dishonest portrayal of the truth is posted it is very sad that some people will go to such lengths. Not everyone will like our food (must do) Not everyone will like our service ( however; most do) I get... More

We had driven past this place many times and the signage had curb appeal. We finally decided to reserve dinner. The inside is rather drab and the restaurant has no upbeat atmosphere. The staff is not particularly attentive or friendly. The real disappointment was the food. The veal marsala was not tender and the veal chop was fatty. The pasta... More

It was my husband's birthday. We had seen Sophia's restaurant several times in passing and decided to call for a reservation. When Milos found that it was his birthday, he immediately gave us a reservation for the time we wanted, even though they were booked. The food was delicious and service was incredible!

We returned to Sophia's a year after a wonderful meal there for my wife's birthday. Sophia's again provided four lovely meals for us, with excellent service. We came fairly early (6:00) on a Monday evening, which was probably a good idea. By the time we left, the place was full. The restaurant takes wine a little more seriously than we... More

My husband and I were guests of a couple who were familiar with Sophia's. I had looked up the menu before we arrived, so I knew I'd be happy with the choices available, but nothing prepared me for the beauty of the restaurant, the warmth and professionalism of the staff and, of course, the superb food. If veal interests you,... More

.....then SOPHIA'S is the place that both of you will enjoy! While your spouse selects his Italian dinner from a menu with extensive offerings, you can select from non-Italian specialties. A good choice would be their wonderful sea bass prepared so it melts in your mouth and will jog your memory in the future to return to SOPHIA'S where both... More

This is slowly becoming my favorite place to dine in Naples. It is in a very central part of town, and offers a wonderful menu selection. Growing up in an Italian home, there were menu items that you simply will not see as regular items in other restaurants. One is never rushed and the old fashioned dining experience is a... More

We visited Sophia's on a Tuesday evening and there were many unfilled tables, which should be unusual for this time of year, so the place felt a little gloomy. We had the spicy clams and mussels as our appetizer. They were good, however we have had larger mussels in the past. Our pastas were very good. The new menu had... More
