“Really good Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

I would definitely return to this lovely little gem. Service and food were exceptional. Had the stuffed veal chop which was a special makes my mouth water thinking about it.

“phenomenal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I have been coming to Naples since the early 1990's and have to say when I found Sophia's Restaurant I was thrilled, from all there pasta's, bread, pastries it is nice to see a restaurant that is willing to put extra work into making things fresh & homemade. The portions are very nice and the service is very comforting. Any time I go to Naples I will always go to this restauarnt, best Italian in Naples & should have a 5 star rating because I have been to all the Italian Restauarnts & there are some very good ones but this one knows what they are doing, can't wait to go back!

“Wonderful rich flavorful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

We love to come to sofia's. on this visit we tried the clams and mussles appetizer in a spicy garlic sauce and needed more bread to dip. Then we split the trio (8 dollars to split but the added another salad and more food) of lobster ravioli , parmesian shrimp , and truffle tagliatelli. Absolutely fabulous.
A wonderful meal AGAIN

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

This is the not only the best Italian restaurant in Naples, it is THE best restaurant in Naples, The food is exceptional, the service is outstanding, and the atmosphere is beyond reproach. Jay is an owner that knows his product and customer. Do not pass this opportunity up.

“Not perfect this time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We love Sophia's. Eaten there six times over the last three years, usually whenever we are in Naples. A friend gave us a gift certificate, so we were excited about having our last meal in Naples at Sophia's before heading North. Simple, but mixed results with our order. Nice bread, An usually dry and uninteresting caesar salad. A nice reisling and Simi cab. Mrs loved her trio of linguini with red clams, lasagna, and a third pasta dish (5 stars here). My chicken cutlet special with a side of pasta left me empty. First unsatisfactory entree even (3 stars). Fine cappuchino with a moderate pastry dessert. Overall 4 stars this time. We usually fine it a 5 star. We will be back to try again!
