We found this restaurant just walking down the street. Waitress/owner is great. We ate here 4 days in a row. Food is excellent especially margaritta and caprese pizzas. Prices are reasonable as well.

Little Italy is no longer what it used to be. Most of the places are run by restaurateurs who are not only not Italian-Americans, but neither Italian nor American. Sophia's is run by eastern europeans who can't make a decent Manhattan nor a Martini, and they have the personalities of a rotting fresco. I was told this place was pretty... More

I was craving a great chicken picatta dinner. The host at this restaurant, like many in Little Italy was very aggressive. He promised a wonderful piccata dish even though they didn't offer it on the regular menu. The portion was decent, but the dish was bland & unimpressive. Because it wasn't on the menu, I was charged $23 for a... More

Firstly, the reviews that say this place is great are definitely family because this place is a definite no no. Save your money and spend it where it's appreciated. The food was okay, service was terrible and that was not just my server but everyone, I watched a real comedy of errors. The head server / owners son / big... More

I loved everything about Sofia's. Not only was the staff friendly but the food...oh the food...it was amazing. The best bruschetta I have ever had. I had the Chef's special Carbonara which was the best I've ever had too. Perfect portions, great price!

Get out of town somehow Tony turned this into one of the most memorable nights in NYC! We did not have a destination in mind but were on Mulberry street looking for outdoor seating when we were waved over at Sofia's. This is a typical italian restaurant you would expect in Little Italy. Tony was our waiter for the evening... More

Overall very average dinner. Nothing stood out as remarkable. We were persuaded in by the host who stood out front. They placed us at a table by the window in which we mainly then heard the conversations between the host and waiters throughout the night. Our waiter was friendly so the service overall was not completely unpleasant. The best dish... More

Visited here on a very wet Wednesday night and got absolutely stunning food with great service. The fillet mignion meatball starters might be a bit ott on price but they are worth it . Waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and made excellent recommendations. Would defo recommend.

Great little restaurant in Little Italy but it is one of many! We had a good pizza dinner and the service was good. We asked for a different table away from the door which was no problem and the helped us move right away. Place isn't cheap but that's probably what you have to pay in the whole street.

We were stopped in the street and persuaded by one of Sofia's trained waiters preying on unsuspecting tourists to go into what appeared to be a very warm and welcoming little traditional Italian restaurant. We have travelled through Italy on a number of occasions and love Italian food, therefore we were most disappointed at the quality of the food presented... More
