After being tempted by the delicious sounding menu, we entered Sofia's - which as no air conditioning - after a long day. We asked for the wifi password to do some research for the next day, to which we got a simple 'it isn't working' despite being advertised on the window. Fortunately, the food was good, hence the 2 star... More

I was a little Leary about eating in little Italy. Was afraid that it was not going to be any good based on the articles I had read. We (family of 4) are glad we tried it. What a meal we had at Sofia's. Prosciutto with melon, arugula salad, fried calamari and pastas were awesome. My wife grew up on... More

Perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise but this place, right on Mulberry, is a bit of a tourist trap. The prices are high for the quality and the service is pretty awful. It's not terrible but there are other places nearby that are better. Go if you have to but you don't have to go.

We dropped in for a visit to Little Italy today and we chose Sophia's as it looked authentic and the man out the front was lovely and wasn't loud, boisterous and pushy like the one close by and a couple of others.. What a find! The food was delicious and the service was awesome.. We'll definitely go back whilst we're... More

Nice setting the service was good and our food was ok but lacking true Italian taste. We were very hungry and were attracted here by a welcoming waitor. We sat outside which was nice. My partner had veal parmi which was ok and I had a pizza which was fairly bland.

Were there on Sunday of Memorial weekend. Menus looked good. Once seated and orders placed, appetizers took awhile to get there, server was inattentive, when main courses arrived - 3 out of 4 dishes were cold. Very disappointing experience.

Neighborhood Profile
Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors from around the globe, especially on summer weekends when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables, cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in for a coffee and a cannoli, or grab a streetside table to take in the scenery over a hearty Italian meal.
