We didn't try Sophia's until the end of our month's stay in Naples. Of three Italiam restaurants we visited, Sophia's is by far the best. The bruschetta is incredibly good. The restaurant specializes in veal. My veal picatta was very worthy of praise. We'll be back! A reservation is a must because of its popularity.

If the one night stand you met at the party over ordered, this is how you'd feel. The food is tasty, serviceable. It's the only wait service in a fast food only area. The service is adequate, not better. The atmosphere is non existent but also not fast food. The prices were out the roof. $37 shrimp scampi. $45 veal... More

We moved here from St Louis in May and have been searching for an Italian restaurant to replace our favorites in St Louis ever since. We think we found it! Went to Sophia's last night--a Thursday--after making a reservation about 3 days in advance. Food was excellent! Both my husband and I had veal with garlic and oil pasta. He... More

We visited the restaurant on a Monday evening only to be told there was a 45-minute wait, unless we wanted to eat at the bar. Lucky for us we took that option. We not only had an extremely high quality dinner, but we got to see the hard-working chefs preparing it. Everything at this busy place is of very high... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by the sight of the manager/owner berating a waiter for a reason we were unable to fathom. I'd booked a table for Xmas Eve well in advance but it could have been any night of the year as there was no special menu or effort made by the restaurant to create a holiday ambience. We... More

Service and food are excellent and we highly recommend Sophias! We have been here many times and will continue to come back. We live on east coast of Florida and come here whenever we are in town. Tried to make reservations but couldn't so went and waited. Great service while we waited and only 30 min to a table.

I've eaten at Sophia's multiple times and usually take family there when they visit. Even though we were seated right away we had to ask for a wine menu 3 times. We ordered eggplant parm which was excellent and we had tortellini which was good. The bread which is served with olive oil is fresh and warm. Unfortunately after we... More

The place is really warmly well decorated, wonderful food and mostly important, very great service. We've ordered a delicious Gorgonzola gnocchi and an egg-plant parmigiana. Both were fantastic. Nothing similar in Florida. The server Alex was very friendly, recommended a very good wine and even spoke Portuguese. I definitely recommend.

Like others, I read the good and the bad. I have been coming to Naples, FL for business every month for the past 3 years and have always driven past Sophia's. The curiosity to visit has always been there but having pasta at night is not my normal thing. However, I finally cave in. I went and had the veal... More
