Fantastic Dinner in a small but very nice eatery. Please ask for Josie, she was Amazing! Had some fantastic wine she recommended with our food parring. The rossoto with steak was great. Kids had Pizza, (shocking ), they loved it. Great prices, can go other spots and pay more, so worth the dinner.

This was a return trip to Old San Juan and we were looking forward to eating at Sofia again. We were disappointed to see it was closed with a sign saying it would be opening soon under a different name with Italian food.
